  • Jonathan Burkardt is struggling to shake off a virus, which has also struck Ludovic Ajorque, Danny da Costa and Marco Richter this week.
  • Striker Nelson Weiper is ruled out after a knee surgery, while Stefan Bell has a heart inflammation issue that is of concern.
  • Andreas Hanche-Olsen is ruled out for several weeks with a muscle tear. Edimilson Fernandes has ankle problems, while Maxim Leitsch has adductor problems.


  • Mainz grabbed only their second win of the season last weekend to give Dane Bo Henriksen, their third boss of the season, a great start to his tenure.
  • Unbeaten league leaders Leverkusen have moved imperiously eight points ahead of nearest challengers Bayern and appear to be cruising to their first-ever league title.
  • Mainz closed to just a point behind a relegation-playoff spot with their first win in 12 games, but a miserable 17 goals scored coupled with nine draws have prevented any upward trajectory.
  • The reverse fixture ended 3-0 in Leverkusen's favour, but Mainz are fighting for their lives and this will not be a walk in the park for Xabi Alonso's side.
