On Friday night, inconsistent Mainz host Eintracht Frankfurt at the OPEL Arena in the Bundesliga, as the visitors look to move into the European spots.
The home side have enjoyed a mixed record in the German top-flight this season. Sandro Schwarz’s side currently lie in 12th position in the German top-flight table after a 2-0 defeat at Schalke in their last Bundesliga game.
Mainz also needed extra-time to see off lower league side Holstein Kiel in the German Cup in midweek. The home side’s inconsistency is confirmed by the fact that they have won just three of their last ten games in the Bundesliga.
However, their results at home in the Bundesliga of late have been good, as they have won three of their last four home games in the league on home soil. League games involving Mainz at the OPEL Arena have also been high scoring, with over 2.5 goals scored in five of their last seven home games.
Mainz have won their last four encounters with Frankfurt on home soil in all competitions, while also scoring two or more goals in their last three home meetings with the visitors.
Frankfurt are currently seventh in the Bundesliga table with the visitors hitting a decent run of form of late. Niko Kovac’s side are unbeaten in three league games in the German top-flight and could move into the top-six with a victory in this clash.
Their recent Bundesliga games have been high scoring with over 2.5 goals scored in five of their last six games in the German top-flight. Frankfurt’s record on the road in the Bundesliga has improved of late, as they have lost just one of their last five away games while winning three of their last four games on the road.
This game could be a tight one, but Forebet predicts that the visitors will record a victory that will move them into the European spots.
