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.
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.
