Between them, Yunus Malli, Yoshinori Muto and Jairo Samperio have scored 18 of Mainz's 23 goals so far this season, and will be looking to add to that tally against an Ingolstadt side without a win since Matchday 13.

Matchday 18 - match facts
- Ingolstadt earned 14 points in their first eight Bundesliga matches, but only collected a further six points in their subsequent nine outings. The promoted outfit have collected just eight points from their eight home fixtures this term. Of all the Bundesliga's 2015 summer signings, only Bayer 04 Leverkusen's Javier 'Chicharito' Hernandez has scored more league goals (11) than Mainz's Yoshinori Muto (seven).Lukas Hinterseer wrote his name in the history books by scoring Ingolstadt's first ever Bundesliga goal - against Mainz on Matchday 1. However, since then he has failed to find the target again in the league. Mainz attacker Yunus Malli scored eight goals in the Hinrunde, meaning he has already set a new personal best for a single season.
