Mainz 05 betting
Mainz’ position in the German top-flight is more secure than it’s ever been in their history.
They can not boast 12 consecutive seasons in the Bundesliga, with even a few international campaigns in the early 2010s. Nowadays, though, they’ve settled into a relatively comfortable position towards the bottom of the table. They do seem to steer away from the relegation zone most of the time, but 13th place isn’t exactly great either.
That said, the 2020/21 Bundesliga season kicked off already, and Mainz displayed weaker form than they’ve had in decades. After a quick look at how they’re planning, they were immediately named relegation favourites by top online bookies. A Bottom 2 Finish is priced at a very short 2.50, indicating low chances of surviving another season.
Mainz Key Players
This marks the second summer in a row with minimal changes to the lineup for the so-called Carnival club.
The biggest shake-up was the relatively expected departure of right-back Ridle Baku. The rising star fulfilled a very versatile role, partly as a midfielder, so his absence is bound to be felt.
With no fitting replacement in sight, we can expect a bigger focus on barrelling down the centre for most offensive plays. The bulk of the pressure will fall on centre-back Moussa Niakhaté, the second striker Robin Quaison, and the squad’s star goal-getter Jean-Philippe Mateta. That said, Kevin Stöge is another recent addition who might turn out pivotal to connecting the sides of the pitch.
Mainz 05 Rivalry
Main rivals are local Eintracht Frankfurt and Kaiserslautern. Club culture is like that that honestly no one really hates them. Fair play above all, so it is not really they have some fierce rivals.
Mainz 05 has always been a small club and until early 2000 they have never been rivals for promotion to the Bundesliga. But, good work in the club pay dividends, and when they decided to appoint former player Jurgen Klopp as manager, they made a step in the right direction. Just a few years later they got their first promotion, and in 2010 they have been promoted again, this time to stay. Opel Arena has a capacity of 34000.
