Bayer Leverkusen will be looking for three points that will take them another step closer to a first Bundesliga title when they host Mainz on Friday night.

After record champions Bayern Munich dropped points again against Bochum last weekend, a win on Friday evening will see Leverkusen go eleven points clear at the top of the table. Xabi Alonso's side are still unbeaten in all competitions this season and boast six wins from their last seven home outings.

Mainz meanwhile are one of the favorites to be relegated from the German Bundesliga this season. Die Nullfünfer are just one place above the foot of the table and will enter Friday's game against the leaders with just one win from their last twelve league outings.

Bayer Leverkusen vs Mainz 05 Betting Tips: Under 3.5 goals

Bayer Leverkusen have the best defence in the Bundesliga this season. Die Werkself are even better on home soil where they have finished each of the last four games without conceding. Three of those fixtures ended with under 3.5 goals.

Mainz 05 may be sixteen places behind the hosts in the table, but Jan Siewert's side did well defensively in recent weeks. The visitors have conceded one goal or fewer in twelve of their last thirteen matches in all competitions and bets on under 3.5 goals won in just as many games.

  • Best Tip: Under 3.5 goals
  • Bayer Leverkusen vs Mainz 05 prediction: 3-0
