Rock-bottom Mainz are hoping to pick up their first Bundesliga win of 2020-21 when they travel to fellow strugglers Freiburg on Sunday.

Mainz claimed their first point of the term when drawing with Schalke prior to the international break and they will look to go one better this weekend.

A trip to Freiburg could offer the perfect opportunity to end their poor run of form, with the hosts failing to win any of their last six league outings.

After winning their opening match of the campaign, Freiburg have drawn three and lost three and sit just three points clear of the bottom three.

Recent meetings have proven to be fruitful for Freiburg, having won the last two, but Mainz triumphed on the previous three occasions and can’t be overlooked.

Despite struggling on the road this season, Mainz picked up some impressive results towards the end of 2019-20 – most notably a 2-0 win at Borussia Dortmund – and they look good value at 5/2.

Free-scoring Bayern to boost title credentials

Bayern appear to be firmly back on track after falling to a 4-1 loss at Hoffenheim in their second Bundesliga outing of the season.

The European champions have won 10 in a row across all competitions and defeated Borussia Dortmund 3-2 prior to the international break.

Werder Bremen are next up for the defending champions and goals look to be on the agenda at the Allianz Arena.

Hansi Flick’s side are comfortably the top scorers in the division after seven games, netting 27 times, and recent home meetings with Werder have been full of goals.

Last season’s engagement finished 6-1 in favour of Bayern, while three of the last four have seen at least six goals scored.

Backing a Bayern win with over 3.5 goals, which is priced at 4/7, looks the way to go in this one.

Capital Club to Take Advantage of Cologne

Union Berlin have been the surprise package in the Bundesliga this term and another victory looks to be on the cards this weekend.

Urs Fischer takes his side to Cologne for Sunday’s 17:00 kick off as they attempt to extend their unbeaten league record to seven matches.

They are yet to taste defeat on the road this season, winning comfortably 3-1 last time out on their travels at Hoffenheim.

In contrast, Colonge, who finished just five points clear of the bottom three in 2019-20, are yet to win a match since the start of this season.

Indeed, they are one of just three clubs without a win and have lost three of their four engagements on home soil.

Die Eisernen ran out 2-1 winners at the RheinEnergieStadion last term and they offer a lot of value at 33/20 to make it back-to-back victories at Cologne.
