On Friday, the national championships traditionally take the place of the European competitions. This includes Bundesliga 1. Traditionally, the organisers bring out 1 pairing for the final night of business. Stuttgart host Mainz in the city of the same name. The hosts need the points – but the mid-table side clearly don’t plan to lose that easily either. The Editors have made sure to publish their predictions for this match on 26 November 2021.

Stuttgart are having a disappointing season
“The Swabians were able to prove themselves perfectly in the last championship. Back in Bundesliga 1, under Pellegrino Matarazzo they produced decent results, scoring 45 points without too much trouble and finishing at the top of the standings. Only now, with the Germans, the ‘Season 2 syndrome’ is showing itself. They managed to win only twice and collected only 10 points in 12 games. No wins since October 2, already a month and a half. Moreover, all the last 3 rounds ended in draws, including the weak opponents, Augsburg and Arminia. Against this background, the trip to Dortmund was not so bad, Borussia even managed to reply to the first goal. But in the 85th minute, Reuss scored the decisive opener.
Mainz look quite confident.
“The Carnival players a year ago were at about the same level as Stuttgart now. But then, in winter, they were lucky to get a new coach – Bo Svensson was brought in. The Dane was little known as a coach, but he quickly began to justify his credibility. In the end, he managed to climb up to 13th place. And many believed that further in the new league season, the team will increase, almost to the point of competing for a place in the European competitions. Not everything is working out, but on the whole there is some progress. There are more victories than defeats, and the goal difference is positive. The unbeaten streak has now reached 5 games, taking into account the 1-1 draw with Cologne last Sunday.
Stuttgart managed to win twice last season, 4-1 away in September and 2-0 at home in January. But before that, Mainz had a nice streak of four wins in a row. And clearly don’t mind starting a new successful streak for themselves.
Stuttgart don’t shine, and are in their position for good reason, while Mainz show quite a serious level of play and claim 6th-7th place. However, with Borussia, the Swabians did not look hopeless, so betting on the visitors, let’s hedge against a zero handicap (odds – 1.72).
