    On Sunday afternoon, Stuttgart and Mainz meet at the MHP Arena in the Bundesliga in a game that could affect both ends of the German top-flight table.

    Stuttgart looking to bounce back

    Although Stuttgart has recorded back-to-back wins in the Bundesliga against RB Leipzig and Freiburg, Sebastian Hoeness’s team suffered a midweek 3-2 defeat at Bayer Leverkusen in the DFB Pokal.

    The game was another high-scoring encounter for Die Roten, as there have been over 2.5 goals scored in six of their last seven matches in all competitions.

    Stuttgart’s back-to-back wins in the Bundesliga have kept them in third place in the German top-flight table in what is becoming an intriguing battle for Champions League football.

    They have been a formidable opponent on home soil of late in the Bundesliga, as Stuttgart have won eight of their last ten home league games.

    Mainz is in major trouble

    The visitors are currently 17th in the Bundesliga table, six points adrift of the safety of 15th place Union Berlin.

    Mainz’s position is not surprising, as they have taken just 11 points from their 19 outings in the German top-flight.

    A 1-0 home defeat against Werder Bremen last time out means that Mainz have now failed to win in their previous nine games in the German top-flight.

    One of the main factors in Mainz’s recent unconvincing league results has been their goal-shy attack, as they have now failed to score in five of their last seven matches.

    Mainz have struggled for away Bundesliga wins in recent months, as they have failed to win any of their last 14 league games on their travels. However, six of their previous seven away games have produced draws.

    What does Forebet predict?

    Forebet predicts Stuttgart will record a comfortable victory in this clash to enhance their top-four hopes while damaging Mainz’s chances of escaping the bottom three.
