Football Prediction of the Day Mainz vs Koln
Mainz and Koln do not think they will give us a too spectacular match, considering the fact that the two worst attacks in the Bundesliga meet. So I bet below 3.5 goals scored.Mainz has scored only 3 times in 3 matches played at home, while the “taps” from Cologne do not do great either in the move, where in 4 matches they have scored 4 times.Considering that the two teams will probably fight side by side to avoid relegation I anticipate a balanced match and without much success.
Bet Tips: 0-3 goals
