Bayer Leverkusen – Mainz Match Preview

  • Gerardo Seoane will be pleased with his start as Bayer Leverkusen manager, picking up ten points from five Bundesliga games – the last time the club had more at this stage was in 2013-14 (12). Three of their last four league encounters have ended in victory (L1), as many wins as they had in the 11 Bundesliga games prior, shedding light on the positive impact the former Young Boys boss is having on his new side.
  • He should be confident of adding to that record here given that Leverkusen are unbeaten in seven league H2Hs against Mainz (W6, D1) – their second-longest active unbeaten run against any Bundesliga side. Not just that, but the host’s scintillating in-form attack could break a record if they manage to bag 3+ goals for a fifth consecutive league match for the first time.
  • Bo Svensson’s Mainz won’t make life easy for them though, especially given that they could leapfrog the home side with a win after their own bright start (W3, D1, L1). The visitors have been especially tough to overcome on the road where they’ve lost only one of their last ten Bundesliga matches, notably opening the scoring before half-time in six of the last seven of those trips.
  • They’ll be hoping for another fast start here, yet success in the match could hinge on events at the other end of the pitch where the visitors have been a tough side to penetrate, conceding a joint-league low two goals ahead of this gameweek.
  • Players to watch: Exciting Leverkusen teenager Florian Wirtz has both scored and assisted in each of his last three league appearances – he’s the youngest Bundesliga player to achieve this feat. Meanwhile, Mainz’ late arrival Kevin Stöger scored off the bench after the 90th minute in the last H2H, and did the same against Fürth last month for the visitors.
  • Hot stat: Mainz are chasing a fourth consecutive Bundesliga clean sheet for the first time since April 2012.
