Bayer Leverkusen vs Mainz odds


*Odds correct as of 09:00 on February 21

Bayer Leverkusen remained unbeaten in Heidenheim for the 32nd consecutive competitive match (28 wins and four draws) – a record set by a Bundesliga team and previously only achieved by Bayern Munich from 2019 to 2020 under Hansi Flick – and now Xabi Alonso’s side will be aiming to break the record against Mainz.

Bayer, who are eight points clear of Bayern at the top of the Bundesliga table, have been winless in six consecutive Friday games. Among the current German top-division teams, only bottom-placed SV Darmstadt have gone longer without a win on a Friday night (seven games). The Werkself’s only point in this period came in a 2-2 draw at Bayern in mid-September 2023.

Mainz, meanwhile, ended their run of 11 Bundesliga games without a win last matchday with their first three points since the 2-0 home win against RB Leipzig on 4 November 2023. FSV, who are in 17th place on 15 points and seven points from safety with 12 matches left, remain the only team still winless away from home this Bundesliga season and has been winless in 15 away games this season (eight draws and seven losses) – only from 2017 to 2018 did Mainz go longer without a win away from home (17 games).
