Mainz 05 v Hannover 96 Preview, Bundesliga, Friday 14th February 2014

Mainz 05 head into this game having picked up 30pts from their 20 matches played this season which puts them in 9th position of the Bundesliga table and with Thomas Tuchel’s side only 7pts behind their visitors, a victory for the hosts on friday night would close that gap to just 4pts and put them right in contention for a European Place.

Hannover 96 have secured 24pts from their 20 matches played this season and currently occupy 10th position of the Bundesliga table and will be fully aware that they can close the gap on their hosts to just 3pts if they can win this game, which should be more than enough incentive for Tayfun Korkut’s side.

73 goals have been scored during the previous 30 matches which gives us with an overall average goals per game statistic of 2.43 and with 28 goals having been scored in the 14 matches played at the Coface Arena we are provided with an average goals per game statistic of 2.00.

Both average goals per game statistics suggest that we should only see a couple of goals scored during this game on friday night.

Hannover 96: L W W L W

Both clubs head into this game in decent enough form, but it is Mainz 05 who just hold a slight advantage on the stats having managed to win 4 and lose 1 of their previous 5 matches played compared to Hannover 96 who have mananged 3 wins and 2 defeats from their last 5 games played.

Mainz 05 will be looking for revenge from their 4-1 defeat against Hannover 96 in the reverse fixture which took place early on in the season last August and with home advantage and in good recent form, the online bookmakers make them the clear favourites to win this game at a current best price of EVS with Coral (£50 Free Bets for New Customers).

The Draw could definitely be an option worth getting on as your main saver bet here as with very little between the two sides overall this season and the average goals per game stats suggesting only a couple of goals at best to be scored during this game, the current best price of 11/4 with BetVictor (£25 Free Bets for New Customers) does represent value.

Hannover 96 can close the gap on their hosts to just 3pts with a victory and having already beaten them once this season in the reverse fixture, the whole squad will be confident of history repeating itself and the away side can be backed at a current best price of 3/1 with Bet365 (£200 Free Bets for New Customers) to win this game on friday night.

Mainz 05 v Hannover 96 Match Predictions, Tips & First Goal Scorer Bets.

A tough game to predict a clear winner from in my opinion as looking at the overall performances of both clubs so far this season, we find that there really is little to choose between them.

Mainz 05 however would be my pick to win this game if I had to choose a winner as with home advantage where they have only lost three times this season and only once in their last six matches played at the Coface Arena they certainly look the more likely on the night for me.

Hannover 96 did beat Mainz 05 back in August 4-1 in the reverse fixture and that victory will obviously provide the Hannover 96 players with bags of confidence as they prepare for this game as they will certainly see this as a game they can win and with it close the gap on their hosts to just 3pts in the league table.

The average goals per game statistics are suggesting this to be a very close and hard fought game with only maybe two goals scored, so it would be beneficial to get on the draw as your main cover bet here as this match has a high possibility of ending up all square on friday night, but I am going to go for the hosts to gain revenge on that 4-1 defeat picked up back in August and win this game as their visitors do not have a great record on the road this season having only managed to win once.
