FSV Mainz 05 v VFB Stuttgart Preview, Bundesliga, Sunday 11th August 2013

It was a season to forget for all FSV Mainz 05 fans last year as the side struggled to win just 10 of it’s 34 league matches played, but coach Thomas Tuchel has brought in several new players to the squad during the summer and recent results in their pre-season friendly matches seem to suggest that this season could be a lot different.

VFB Stuttgart also had a torrid time of it last season, they managed to finish one place above their hosts in 12th position of the league table, but could only win 12 of their 34 league matches played. However, they have also bolstered their squad during the summer and brought in a number of new signing’s and their recent pre-season has also seen some positive results and fans will be confident of their side having a much better season this time around.

From those statistics VFB Stuttgart would have a clear advantage over their hosts, but with FSV Mainz 05 having won those 3 games in the last few season’s and all of them coming at the Coface Arena, there really isn’t much to choose between the two sides for this one.

Average Goals Per Game?

In the last 5 meetings 18 goals have graced the nets which provides us with an average goals per game statistic of 3.60 which strongly suggests that this game should see it’s fair share of goals come sunday afternoon.

FSV Mainz 05 have seemingly impressed the online bookmakers with their pre-season efforts as they have been priced up as the clear favourites to win this match at current best odds of 6/4 with BetVictor – £50 Free Bets For New Customers

The Draw did happen the last time these two sides met each other towards the end of last season and with the head to head statistics offering no clear advantage to either side, taking the sides to finish all square could be a wise choice at a current best price of 12/5 with Betfred – £10 Free Bets No Deposit Required For New Customers.

VFB Stuttgart do have the better record overall, having won 4 games more than their hosts, but they have not managed a victory at the Coface Arena now since 2005 and it’s difficult to see that changing, so their current best price of 2/1 with Sky Bet – £10 Free Bets No Deposit Required For New Customers, does look a bit on the short side here.

FSV Mainz 05 v VFB Stuttgart Match Predictions, Tips & First Goal Scorer Bets.

There is not much between these two sides based on all the information gathered and gone through, but FSV Mainz 05 have not lost against VFB Stuttgart at the Coface Arena since 2005 and have won their last three encounters when having home advantage so they do look the more likely to win this game and look good value to get on with a couple of correct score bets.

However, the stand out wager for this game surely has to be the Over 2.5 Goals, as with the average goals per game statistics showing 3.60 and both sides having had no problems scoring goals in their recent pre season fixtures this looks great value.
