The Bundesliga game at MEWA Arena on Saturday will see visitors Bochum facing home side Mainz 05.

A glance at the Bundesliga table reveals that, the current difference between the teams is four points and four places.

Mainz 05 as well as Bochum suffered disappointing defeats in their most previous match. This could lead to a cautious encounter as neither side naturally fancies losing once again already.

Bochum and Mainz 05 seem to find it tough getting their defensively lines in order, as they both concede too many goals. We hope the trend continues this coming Saturday, as we aim for both teams to score.
