ANALYST

Stuttgart host Mainz at the Mercedes-Benz Arena in the Bundesliga on Friday, with both sides having contrasting seasons so far.

Stuttgart have been woeful of late. Pellegrino Matarazzo's side have lost their last four consecutive games across all competitions and are 16th in the league. They hope to turn things around with a win against Mainz on Friday.

Mainz, on the other hand, are currently eighth in the table, three points off the top four. Bo Svensson's side have been a surprise package this season and are unbeaten in their last five games across all competitions. They will look to extend their streak with a win against Stuttgart on Friday.

Both sides will want to win the game for different reasons and that should make for an interesting matchup.


Stuttgart vs Mainz Head-to-Head

Mainz have slightly edged the recent head-to-head record between the two sides, having won three of their last five meetings, with Stuttgart winning the other two.

Stuttgart beat Mainz 2-0 the last time the two sides met back in January. Goals from Sasa Kalajdzic and Silas were enough to secure the three points on the night.
