Bayer Leverkusen will look to keep their title hopes on track when they host Mainz at the Bay Arena on Friday night in the German Bundesliga.

The hosts approach this game unbeaten in their last six league matches with a recent 2-1 win over Heidenheim away from home.

Mainz on the other hand have themselves struggling this season as they sit in 17th place on the league standings with only one win in their last six matches.

However, a 1-0 win over Augsburg at home last weekend proved to be a confidence booster for Mainz who will hope to turn their fortunes around for the better this season.

The reverse fixture saw Xabi Alonso’s side beat the visitors 3-0 in September, and with the impressive form of the hosts, a likely result could repeat itself on Friday night.

Moreover, Bayer Leverkusen have three wins in their last five matches against the visitors, losing twice in the period.

Patrik Schick is expected to be joined in attack by Florian Wirtz for the hosts while Brajan Gruda and Lee Jae-sung will be the key players in the final third for the visitors.

The match starts at 19:30 GMT
