Stadium: Meva Arena (Mainz)
The match between Mainz and Greuther Fürth can hardly be called a top match of the third round of Bundesliga, however, for both teams the upcoming game, without a doubt, is of great importance. Mainz is the favorite and, frankly, it is hard to disagree with the bookmakers on this matter.
To be honest, Mainz has already surprised us twice this season, although only two rounds have been played since the start of Bundesliga 2021/22. First, the Carnaval club beat Leipzig with a score of 1-0. Mainz probably didn't deserve to win; it was more of a draw. A week later the club lost to Bochum, the newcomer of the German elite, who knocked Mainz out of the German Cup in the previous season. What to expect from Bo Svensson's team in the upcoming game. We think they will be very active and hopefully, the home team will win.
Greuther Fürth Form
We'll see how Greuther Fürth do next, but so far this team looks like one of the most realistic candidates for elimination. Which, in general, is not surprising, given the financial possibilities of the Bavarians. In the German championship, Greuther Fürth started with a devastating defeat against Stuttgart 1-5, continued with a home draw with a similar outsider FC Arminia. It should be noted that in the three official matches of the season involving the Bavarians the bet "both teams to score - yes" constantly happened to be a hit rate.
Injured and Disqualified
Mainz: no injured players
Greuther Fürth: Ngankam and Jung will not play.
Expert Betting Tips
There is no clear opinion about Greuther Fürth yet. Against Stuttgart, the Bavarians looked like easy beats, but against Arminia in a home game, everything was not so bad. But do not forget that Arminia is not a top team in Bundesliga, and frankly, I expect that in this season Bielefeld will be among the three worst teams, as, perhaps, will be the team from Fürth. Mainz against Bochum was not their best match, but the Carnaval club has shown their real potential in the first round, in the match against "Leipzig". We think that if the club will perform on Saturday to at least 75% of their potential, they will defeat the elite newcomer, and we hope for a productive game, after all, Greuther Fürth can be called a rather strong team. We suggest the following bets: H1 (-1) for 2,19, BTTS for 1,7, W1+BTTS for 3,26.
