Mainz picked up eight points in five recent matchdays saving them from the relegation to the 2. Bundesliga. "Karnevalsverein" shares the 13th-15th places in the table with FC Augsburg and Wolfsburg having gained 37 points with 44-53 goal difference. The team is two points above Hamburger SV sitting in the relegation zone. However, in any case Mainz are unlikely to shift lower the 15th position in this season and it means that the side will not relegate for sure. On the road Mainz show mediocre results recording 12 points taken in 16 clashes. The team has been failing to win across five consecutive away encounters since the 25th of February.
FC Koln will play at the home field and still keep chances to qualify to the Eurocups in the case of triumph. Mainz have ensured their position in the elite division, consequently, the visiting side does not need points badly in Saturday battle meaning that the hosts have favourable circumstances for getting three points.
Prediction for the match: FC Koln to win.
