Mainz vs Bayer Leverkusen: Main look to leapfrog fixture bound Bayer

09:19, 05 Feb 2019

Main will open the action of the 21st Bundesliga round as they welcome Leverkusen to the Opel Arena on Friday evening. The hosts will be looking to avenge the 1-0 loss suffered at the hands of their opponents in the first leg and set pace for another explosive weekend of German top flight competition. 

Sandro Schwarz’s side will be coming from a trip to Augsburg in the 2th round were they will look to build their winning momentum. Nineteen rounds in, they sat 10th on the log with 27 points. They are likely to go on an all-out attack in this tie, using Robing Quaison and Jean-Philippe Mateta in a twin front line.

Leverkusen sit a place ahead of their opponents on goal difference They have a more congested schedule as they warm up for this tie with Heidenheim in midweek in the DFB Cup and also have to mind the Europa league trip to Krasnodar immediately after. They are thus likely to approach the game with lower tempo and prefer the counter attack.
