Mainz 05 vs Werder Bremen / Bundesliga – At the end of the 10th round we have match between teams with totally different results made so far. Mainz did modestly and it won just three points more than teams in the drop zone, while Werder is one of pleasant surprises and right now it occupies the fourth place. Mainz finished competing in the DFB-Pokal already in the second round despite being very close to win in Augsburg. Werder easily dispatched Flensburg and in that way it soothed pain after heavy defeat in the previous league round. Last season, Werder won in Mainz by 2-1.

Elimination from the DFB-Pokal is another confirmation that Mainz is not doing well this season, although due to all these problems in the German championship it will surely quickly forget the elimination. Its fans will be sorry for as Mainz had lead two times in Augsburg and were better team, however, the match went into extra time when they received the third goal and lost.
It was the seventh consecutive match they didn’t win, and out of six-game winless streak they drew only two matches. Glimmer of hope that better days are coming is fact that after five games without in which they failed to score they managed to do so against Bayern, and then twice in the Cup. Mainz has scored just five goals in the Bundeslige and it created the least chances. Manager Schwarz had made many changes in the team for the Cup match, while compared to the previous round Mwene and Quaison will be in the starting line-up now.
Probable lineups Mainz 04: F.Muller – Brosinski, Bell, Niakhate, Aaron – Kunde – Mwene, Gbamin – Boetius – Quaison, Mateta
Werder made several unpleasant surprised recently when it was not expected. After first five rounds when they stayed undefeated they lost in Stuttgart, which was followed by two consecutive triumphs by 2-0 over Wolfsburg at home and Schalke away, but in the previous round they suffered a true debacle. Their guest was not so convincing Bayer Leverkusen and instead to continue with good games and results they were trailing behind 3-0 by halftime, which increased to 6-2 at the end.
They received almost the same number of goals in the first home defeat like in all matches played so far this season, but at least Werder continued to score in each and every match. Duel with Flensburg in the DFB-Pokal came handy to strengthen their self-confidence and they won 5-1 with reserve team. The best individual was Harnik who came off the bench and scored two goals. That is why he could be a starter now, but it is also important that Moisander is back at his stopper position, and Bargfrede and Kainz in the midfield.
Probable lineups Werder Bremen: Pavlenka – Gebre Selassie, Veljkovic, Moisander, Augustinsson – Bargfrede – M. Eggestein, Klaassen – Harnik, Kainz – M. Kruse
Mainz 05 vs Werder Bremen PICK
Werder has showed far more than Mainz so far but the home team seems to slowly but surely plays better and better. In fact Mainz wasn’t catastrophic in front of its fans by now, while Werder sometimes plays excellently and sometimes underperformers which is why we would give advantage here to Mainz.
