Team News

  • Christian Wetklo is still suspended and will be replaced by Heinz Müller again.
  • With Nikolce Noveski suspended for one game as well, Jan Kirchhoff could start at centre-back.
  • Junior Diaz and Radoslav Zabavnik compete for the spot at left-back.
  • Shawn Parker and Nicolai Müller compete for the spot alongside Adám Szalai up front.
  • With Serdar Tasci still suspended, Maza will get another chance at centre-back.
  • Gotoku Sakai is suspended as well, meaning Antonio Rüdiger coud start at right-back.
  • Arthur Boka and Cristian Molinaro compete for the spot at left-back.
  • Shinji Okazaki and Ibrahima Traoré compete for the spot on the left wing.

Prediction

  • Mainz have had a good first half to the season all in all, and the team most likely won't get sucked into a relegation battle this season.
  • Stuttgart recovered well from a poor start to the season and after three wins in a row, they are currently fifth in the table, ready to challenge for a European place in the second half of the campaign.
  • Expect this to be a competitive game from the start with two teams in similar form.
