Live in-play betting – 

Mainz host Monchengladbach in a game featuring two underperforming German giants.

Mainz are currently 13th in the league table after picking up just 33 points from 30 games.

They recently bounced back from a slump in form which saw them lose 4 straight games before their last match.

They have managed to pick up 4 points from their last 2, and they will be looking to get at least a point in this encounter.

Their home form has not been encouraging.  Prior to winning their last home game, they were on a 2 game losing streak at home and they have lost 3 of their last 5 home games in total.

Monchengladbach are currently 10th in the league table with 39 points from 30 games.

They have also performed very poorly recently losing their last 2 league games.

They trail 7th  placed Bremen by only 3 points and a win here could see them move up the table.

Their away form has not been good as they have won only once in their last 4 away league matches.

However, they have scored 3 goals in each of their last 2 away games so there is a chance they will outscore Mainz.
