Bayer Leverkusen host Mainz in Bundesliga soccer action from the BayArena on Saturday morning.

Bayer Leverkusen enter this match in 5th place after a 2-0 loss to Hertha Berlin in their last match kept them on 60 points with a record of 18 wins, 6 draws and 9 losses. In the loss to Hertha Berlin, Leverkusen fell behind after just 22 minutes and then behind by two goals in the 54th minute of play. Leverkusen would hold 61% possession in the game including 60% possession in the second half, but Bayer wouldn’t be able to get on the board to chip into Hertha’s lead, leaving the match empty-handed at full time. Kai Havertz leads Leverkusen in scoring with 12 goals along with 6 assists while Kevin Volland has 9 goals and a team-high 7 assists. Lukas Hradecky is Leverkusen’s top goaltender, conceding 1.3 goals per 90 minutes with 9 clean sheets in 33 league appearances this season.

Mainz on the other hand, come in sitting on 37 points with a record of 11 wins, 4 draws and 18 losses after back-to-back wins following a 3-1 win over Werder Bremen in their last match. In the win over Bremen, Robin Quaison gave Mainz the lead in the 25th before Jean-Paul Boetius doubled the lead just five minutes later for Mainz. Bremen would pull a goal back in the 58th, but that’s as close as they’d get as Edimilson Fernandes restored the two-goal lead in the 85th minute, giving Mainz a 3-1 lead they wouldn’t relinquish the rest of the way. Quaison leads Mainz in scoring with 13 goals this season while Karim Onisiwo leads Mainz in assists with 6 helpers to go along with his 4 goals while the aforementioned Boetius also has 4 goals with 5 assists.

Mainz and the plus money’s been worth a look as they’ve won their last two road games by a 2-0 scoreline, including a win over Dortmund. However, Leverkusen has too much at stake with a potential leapfrog into Champions League spots at stake with a win and a Monchengladbach loss. Leverkusen’s also owned Mainz in the last couple of years, winning the last four meetings by a combined score of 9-1. I’ll take a shot with Leverkusen to win and both teams to score – no to bring this wager down from -400 to plus money.
