KOL Vs MAZ Dream11 Team Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: Relegation threatened Mainz visit Koln in dire need of coming out of this tie unscathed
Finding themselves precariously close to the relegation zone before Coronavirus ended up halting action in the Bundesliga, Mainz 05 will be elated at the league’s decision to resume. With the 20019-29 edition of the season set to be played out fully and run down its proper course, Mainz find themselves in with a proper chance of ensuring safety this season.
And while its going to be extremely for them to get right back into the thick of things after a two month hiatus, the side knows it needs to settle into its groove right from the word go. Just the three points above 16th spot at the moment, a defeat against Koln today could end up pushing them right into the dreaded bottom three.
What will instil much needed confidence into them ahead of the day’s upcoming tie is the hammering they handed out to Koln the last time these two sides met. The 3-1 defeat for Koln was vindictive of the side’s defensive aberrations, ones which see them a measly 6 point above Koln in the league at the moment.
With both these sides struggling to scrape together stringent defensive displays, we envision today’s outing being a humdinger of a goals feast. This promises to be an incredible attacking show, one where either side will leave their defensive gameplan out of the door.
And this encounter will suit Koln, a side capable of exploiting vulnerable defences to see the home side come out of the fixture with a win.

KOL Vs MAZ Dream11 Defenders
Both the sides aren’t renowned for their defences with both the backlines waning to concede a hoard of goals this season. It’s a narrative which makes a cleansheet for either side an extremely unlikely proposition today with us set o be immersed in an edge of the seat attacking thriller.
