Stuttgart vs Mainz: prediction for the Bundesliga match
Stuttgart had an unsuccessful start of the season and is in a deep crisis now, so far Pellegrino Matarazzois unable to find a way out of it. Swabians are approaching the 13th round at 16th spot in the standings with only 10 points in the asset. Team is only one point ahead of the relegation zone, so situation may get worse after this round, if they won't be able to put an end to their streak.
But Stuttgart is also only two points behind the 15th-placed Augsburg, so everything is not so hopeless so far. Swabians recorded the most recent victory in the seventh round, beating Hoffenheim (3:1), it happened in the beginning of October. In the most recent round Stuttgart suffered a defeat to Borussia Dortmund (1:2), extending their winless streak to six matches.
Before the start of that tournament Mainz was considered the main underdog of the season, but Bo Svensson's team managed to prove that statement wrong. The Carnival Club is currently at 8th spot in the standings with 18 points in the asset. Team is only two points away from the European competitions zone, they can overcome this deficit in this match.
But in recent matches Mainz was not too convincing - string of two victories was followed by a string of two draws. In the 11th round The Carnival Club barely snatch a draw from Borussia Monchengladbach (1:1), in the most recent match against Koln team had a chance to pick up three points, but The Billy Goats managed to snatch a draw in the second half, so Mainz got only one point.
Two out of five most recent matches between the clubs ended with that score
In three most recent home games Stuttgart scored on Mainz in the second half
This bet played in two most recent away matches of Mainz
Stuttgart can't find a victory, their winless streak is consisting of five matches now, so team dropped to the 16th spot in the standings. Swabians surely want to improve the situation, so they will try to pick up three points - Stuttgart's squad is surely better, despite some injuries, so hosts should be able to put up a fight against Mainz.
We think that hosts have more chances to get the victory. Our prediction - Asian handicap (0) on Stuttgart

Stuttgart is in a desperate need of victory, they are currently in the relegation play-off zone, so hosts will be incredibly motivated. Mainz suffered three out of four most recent defeats on away matches, plus they are not looking great in recent matches, so Swabians should be able to record a victory, but we are not expecting a blowout - The Carnival Club is one of the best defensive teams in the league.
Our second bet is on Stuttgart to win by one goal
