On Saturday afternoon, Bayer Leverkusen host Mainz at the BayArena in the Bundesliga, as both teams look to build on promising starts to their league campaigns.
Bayer Leverkusen head into this game on the back of four wins in their last five outings in all competitions. Last time out Die Werkself recorded a 3-1 win at Stuttgart. The result means that Gerardo Seoane’s team has now scored at least three goals in their last four Bundesliga outings.

Czech Republic striker Patrik Schick has scored in his last four outings in the Bundesliga, a career first for the forward in the German top-flight.
Boy wonder Florian Wirtz has also scored in Bayer’s last three matches in the Bundesliga. The 18-year-old is improving with each appearance for the home team.
A 4-3 defeat by Dortmund in their last home match ended a five-game unbeaten run in the Bundesliga at the BayArena. Leverkusen’s recent league outings on home soil have been high-scoring, with over 2.5 goals scored in nine of their previous ten home games.
Mainz continue to impress under highly promising head coach Bo Svensson. The Dane managed to save the visitors from the drop last season. This season they are currently fifth place in the table and only trail their hosts due to an inferior goal difference.
A goalless home draw with Freiburg last time out means that Mainz are unbeaten in their last three Bundesliga matches, having also kept clean sheets in four of their five matches in the German top-flight this season.
Although the visitors have an inconsistent recent away record, they have lost just one of their previous ten away games in the Bundesliga.
PlusBet.net predicts that Bayer Leverkusen will record a victory in a typically high-scoring encounter to maintain their good start to the new campaign in the German top-flight.
