Stuttgart hosts Mainz in round 13 of the German Bundesliga. The match will be played on Friday, November 26th at Mercedes-Benz Arena (Stuttgart)
Over the past decade and a half, Stuttgart has provided its fans with polar opposite emotions. There was a sensational champion’s title, but several seasons had to be spent in the Bundesliga 2. In 2020, a little-known specialist, Pellegrino Matarazzo, brought the Swabians out of there. Under his management, the team showed good football in the elite division as well, finishing in 9th place in the spring, that is, exactly at the equator of the standings. And the new championship started with a 5-1 victory, albeit over a weak newcomer, Greuther Furth. But in all subsequent games, Stuttgart managed to gain only one more victory. In total, the club has ten points after 12 matches and takes 3rd place from the end. All four last matches, including the cup game, were lost. Moreover, the Swabians lost to Arminia Bielefeld, which is below them in the standings. The pause for the international matches was not particularly helpful, as Stuttgart suffered another defeat. However, it lost 1-2 to Borussia in Dortmund, and Reus set the final score only in the 85th minute.

Mainz has regained its status as the middle peasant of German football. It had a difficult first round of the last championship. But Bo Svensson was invited from Denmark in winter, and that appointment turned out to be a real salvation. Under the new coach, the Carnival club significantly stepped up and finished with a good lead from the relegation zone. And now they are deservedly considered as contenders for the 6th or 7th place. In principle, Mainz could have been in it now. But in the last round, it was limited only to a draw against FC Koln at home. Let’s note that the goal was scored thanks to the usual link: Burkardt did it after a pass from Onisiwo. Mainz has 18 points after 12 rounds and lags only two points behind Union Berlin, which is ranked fifth. On the other hand, the Carnival club managed to extend the streak without defeats, which now amounts to five games in a row, taking into account the cup.
In 2017-2019, Mainz beat Stuttgart four times in a row. But in the last championship, the Swabians finally took revenge, gaining two victories over the Carnival club. Bookmakers believe that the visitors will have a good chance of winning the upcoming game. But a draw against FC Koln is not a particularly good signal. It is worth limiting the bet on Mainz with a zero handicap.
Prediction for the match: Mainz to win with 0.0 handicap
