Mainz vs Bayer: We will see a lot of goals
After two defeats to Bochum (1:3) and Greuther Fürth (1:2), Mainz won. They managed to beat sturdy Hoffenheim, moreover, 2-0. Last time round, the team were held to a 1-1 draw with Freiburg. In the table, Mainz are in ninth place with 31 points, but because of the Eurocup zone's high density, they are only three points behind.
Bayer have not been beaten in five games in a row. Furthermore, after their 2-2 draw with Union, the Leverkusen side has won four games in a row. They beat Borussia M 2-1, Augsburg 5-1, Borussia D 5-2 and Stuttgart 4-2 in the last round. Bayer are third in the standings, with 41 points and five behind second-placed Borussia Dortmund.
In this meeting, of course, Bayer are the favourites because they've been simply awesome of late. But Mainz are also very good on home soil, so that they will put up a good fight. It should be noted that our opponents are very high-scoring - the home side's goalscoring average is 2.5, and the visitors' average is 4.3! We expect them to score at least three goals between them.

Juventus vs Torino: The Bulls to lose their third match in a row
Juventus are in very decent form coming into the upcoming match. The last time Juventus lost the Supercup tie against Inter was 1-2 after extra time. Since then, they have played six games and defeated four opponents, while AC Milan and Atalanta have drawn 0-0 and 1-1, respectively. Juventus are fourth in the table with 46 points.
Torino are unbeaten twice following a three-match losing streak. The first game was a 2-0 draw at Udinese and then a 1-2 draw at Venice. Therefore, Torino are sitting in tenth place with just 32 points.
The bookmakers see Juventus as the favourites for the Turin derby, and we agree with them. The Old Lady have been looking good of late, and they should improve their place in the Champions League zone. On the other hand, the Bulls are coming into the game after two defeats to teams that are not top flight, which is not good for their morale. We suggest we don't make anything up and take a clean win for the home side.

Elche vs Rayo Vallecano: Bet on the home team
Elche are out of the relegation zone and slowly making their way to the middle of the table. Ahead of this round, the team is 14th on the table with 26 points, a respectable six ahead of the danger zone. Elche were unbeaten in five consecutive matches before last week's La Liga fixture but lost to a powerful Sevilla side 0-2.
Rayo Vallecano, on the other hand, are sliding down the table. At the moment, Rayo are sitting in 11th place with 31 points. They are now seven points adrift of the Europa League zone. Rayo Vallecano suffered three defeats in the last three matches - 0-2 from Celta, 1-2 from Betis and 0-3 from Osasuna.
As for the betting on this match, we'll opt for the home side here. They've been looking a lot better of late, and they might even beat Rayo Vallecano on the spirits. Elche can certainly score at least one home goal - that's our bet.
