Correct Score odds
The Opel Arena has not been a fortress for Mainz 05 the season but it is slowly becoming one on the basis of recent form. Apart from the defeats against Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund – two of the top teams in the German league, Mainz 05 have not had any setback at home this season. Hannover are winless in away matches this season and our correct score prediction would go with a 2-0 victory for the home team.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
Mainz 05 have seen Hannover concede a whopping 19 goals in away matches. This is likely to help Mainz 05 get at least a couple of goals in this match, while Hannover themselves at a very poor going forward. Despite having scored a reasonable eight goals in the last seven away matches this season, our total goals prediction would go with under 2.5 goals in the game.

First Goalscorer odds
Jean-Philippe Mateta has been in stunning form for Mainz 05 after grabbing three goals in his last four appearances for the club. He has now taken his season’s tally to 4 goals, as he has been able to conclude his extended drought in emphatic fashion. Our first goalscorer prediction would pick Jean-Philippe Mateta.
