Match Preview

  • Arminia Bielefeld have won just one of their opening nine Bundesliga fixtures (W1, D1, L7), and are therefore enduring their worst start to a top-flight campaign in the club’s history. To make matters worse, if they lose this match it would be the first time since February 2000 that any Bielefeld side has lost eight successive Bundesliga games.
  • The hosts’ sole victory this Bundesliga season did come at home though, so all is not lost. However, as the only Bundesliga side yet to score before HT at home (HT: D2, L2), Bielefeld hold the unfortunate title of slowest home starters. Even so, scoring first will be a priority, as all four of their home league games were won by the team that netted the opener (W1, L3).
  • Although they remain third bottom, Mainz saw their unbeaten run stretched to three top-flight matches (W1, D2) following a 1-1 home draw in the Bundesliga last weekend, representing their longest such streak in 2020/21. That result continued a recent trend too, as each of their nine Bundesliga fixtures this term have now witnessed the opening goal scored by the 40th minute.
  • One way or another there should be goals, as the visitors’ last goalless Bundesliga away draw dates back to March 2018, whilst their four away league fixtures this season all witnessed four goals precisely. However if they are to win here they will likely need to score over 1.5 team goals, as they are winless in their last 22 top-flight road trips when they failed to achieve that (D2, L20).
  • Players to watch: Bielefeld’s Sven Schipplock has scored his last eight competitive goals after the 60th minute. Meanwhile, Jean-Philippe Mateta (FSV) has netted the game’s third goal in each of his four goalscoring Bundesliga matches.
  • Hot stat: The previous six Bundesliga H2Hs all featured under 2.5 goals, whilst five witnessed a goalless first half.
