Did you know that…
…Mainz particularly enjoy facing TSG?
In their 28 meetings to date, Mainz have scored 51 goals against Hoffenheim – more than they have against any other Bundesliga team.
…the visitors have recently been in good form?
Mainz made an unsuccessful start to the season: they were bottom after nine games, had only three points on the board and went out of the DFB-Pokal. But things have been going better since Bo Svensson was replaced as coach by Jan Siewert: Mainz have taken four points from two matches.
…TSG have two different faces?
Pellegrino Matarazzo’s team top the unofficial away table with 16 points. At home, however, Hoffenheim have picked up only three points and sit joint-bottom in this category along with Union Berlin.
…Wout Weghorst is in strong form?
The striker has scored a goal in each of his last three Bundesliga appearances. The 31-year-old also continued his scoring run during the international period and netted the goal that fired the Netherlands to the European Championship.
