Futaa Friday tip of the day: Mainz vs Leverkusen
Friday's action features an improving Bayer Leverkusen side, who travel to Mainz tonight. Can the visitors stay in the hunt for a European place?
We've placed some bets based on the information below on betPawa!
Leverkusen celebrated an impressive comeback in their last Bundesliga outing as they beat Bayern Munich 3-1 after initially trailing at the break. That made it four wins in their last five league matches, scoring exactly three goals in the last three victories. Mainz has only lost one of their last five home matches, but have conceded at least once in their last six encounters at the Opel Arena.
Mainz is without goalkeeper Rene Adler and midfielder Danny Latza. Teenage star Kai Havertz faces a late fitness test, but the 18-year-old should take his place in midfield for Leverkusen. The young German has seven goals in the Bundesliga this season and is starting to become a cornerstone of this Leverkusen side under Peter Bosz. Lars Bender is still out for the visitors so Julian Baumgartlinger should continue in the heart of midfield.
- There have been over 2.5 goals scored in five of Mainz's last six home games in the Bundesliga.
- There have been over 2.5 goals in Mainz's last five home matches against Leverkusen across all competitions.
- There have been over 2.5 goals scored in five of Leverkusen's last six away games in the Bundesliga.
- Mainz have scored at least two goals in their last four home matches against Leverkusen in all competitions.
With both of sides in the free-scoring mood, our best bet is to back over 2.5 goals priced at 1.53 on betPawa!
