Mainz 05 have put in some impressive performances in recent weeks, but their hard work has not exactly paid off in terms of results due to a lack of quality up front. Fortuna Dusseldorf will be buoyant after the draw with Bayern Munich in the recent match. Despite struggling at the wrong end of the table, Fortuna Dusseldorf find themselves with four points from the last two Bundesliga games. Mainz 05 will once again come in with a lot of effort, but the home team might just be able to grab a crucial victory.

Mainz 05 win odds: 2.62
Correct Score odds
Mainz 05 have actually scored fewer goals (11) than Fortuna Dusseldorf (13) despite being seven places above them in the table. This is a similar story in terms of recent form, but there is no doubt that Fortuna Dusseldorf have been helped by the seven goals against Hertha Berlin and Bayern Munich. Still, recent form makes our correct score prediction go with a 2-1 win for Fortuna Dusseldorf.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
Mainz 05 have pressed opponents high up the pitch and this has made it difficult for the opposition to score goals. Yet, Dodi Lukebakio capitalised on a high line against Bayern Munich with his pace. Both teams are expected to score goals in this match and our total goals prediction would back over 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Dodi Lukebakio come up with a hat-trick against Bayern Munich to make it five league goals for the campaign. Even though his previous league goal was away against Frankfurt in October, his hat-trick will help him approach this upcoming match with a great deal of confidence. Lukebakio’s last goal at the Merkur Spiel-Arena was back in the middle of September, but our first goalscorer prediction would back the 21-year-old.
