Mainz – Borussia Monchengladbach | 24/02/2023

Mainz 05 and Borussia Monchengladbach will head into their Friday night encounter level on points in the Bundesliga. Both teams moved back into the top half of the table by securing impressive victories last weekend.

Mainz found themselves involved in one of the feistiest Bundesliga games in recent memory last weekend as they took the lead three times in an eventual 3-2 win over Leverkusen in a game that saw 13 cards shown, including one for both managers! Disciplinary issues aside, Mainz have now impressively scored three times in back-to-back Bundesliga games for the first time since 2016.

Repeating that feat for a third time would set a new club record, but it will take another stunning effort as they’re still the lowest scoring Bundesliga side in the top-ten (G33). Returning to the Mewa Arena isn’t necessarily an indicator of more success for Mainz either, but they do have the opportunity to post back-to-back competitive home wins for the first time in over a year if they can follow up on their 3-1 victory over Augsburg in their last outing here.

Standing in their way is Daniel Farke’s Borussia Mönchengladbach, who sit above Mainz on goal difference only after posting an identical 21-game league record (W8, D5, L8). The Foals enter this clash full of confidence after blowing the title race wide open with a 3-2 victory over Bayern Munich last time out, marking a fifth straight unbeaten H2H against the ten-time consecutive champions

Currently sitting six points better off than at the same stage of last season, Gladbach have an opportunity to provisionally leapfrog Wolfsburg into seventh place with victory. Playing away isn’t likely to inspire confidence though as the Foals have picked up just 24% of their points on the road (W1, D4, L5), with only relegation battlers Stuttgart and Schalke winning fewer Bundesliga games on their travels.
