A strong start to the season for Mainz is in danger of losing its impact in the weeks leading up to May. Bo Svensson’s strong start allowed Mainz to put year-over-year relegation concerns to rest, but their poor road performance has caused them to drop to ninth, heading into this weekend’s games.
The 3-1 loss at Union Berlin was the latest game in their road woes after second-placed Borussia Dortmund’s weekend visit to the Opel Arena was postponed because of a COVID-19 outbreak within the team.
Only two of the bottom three teams, Stuttgart and Greuther Furth have worse away records than Mainz to this point, and with the build-up to this trip to Augsburg being hampered by the aftereffects of last week’s outbreak, Svensson, as well as his players have it all to do if they are to reawaken their slender hope of moving into the top six.
A mid-table position is still wonderful for Die Nullfunfer given their customary expectations, yet a weak campaign finale may take the shine off those accomplishments. Few would have predicted Leverkusen’s disastrous start to the 2022–23 season after Gerardo Seoane easily led the team to a top-three finish in his first season in command.
To be fair, a loss to Borussia Dortmund on the road was always the most likely result, and Die Werkself performed admirably in that 1-0 defeat. However, that defeat was between a humiliating 4-3 DFB-Pokal loss to third-tier team Elversberg and last weekend’s 2-1 home loss to Augsburg.
Leverkusen needs to recover swiftly before their season becomes a complete mess.
FSV Mainz 05 Vs Bayer Leverkusen Team News
- FSV Mainz 05
Due to the postponement last week, Kohr and Alexander Hack will complete their one-match suspensions this weekend. Jeremiah St Juste’s chronic shoulder injury will prevent him from returning for a few weeks.
Thus, David Nemeth or Niklas Tauer will take his place in the normally reliable back line. The only other player not present is backup goalie Finn Dahmen, but Svensson must make various choices as he tries to solve his team’s difficulties traveling.
- Bayer Leverkusen
Lukas Hradecky will return to the Leverkusen goal after serving a one-match suspension for his expulsion against Dortmund on an opening day. Due to a thigh injury, Lunev, who replaced Hradecky in the loss to Augsburg, will be out, along with Amine Adli (collarbone), Karim Bellarabi, and Florian Wirtz (both knee).
Robert Andrich, who missed the previous match due to an injury sustained against Dortmund, should be back this time around to provide some steel in the middle of the field, with Sardar Azmoun perhaps being benched after failing to perform well during Wirtz’s absence once more.
