Mainz vs Eintracht Frankfurt Match Preview
Eintracht Frankfurt travel to Mainz on the back of a Europa League win at Arsenal (1-2), where they ended a three-match losing streak and snatched the 2nd spot in Group F late in the campaign – now sitting two points clear of 3rd placed Standard Liege with a home clash against rock-bottomed Vitoria Guimaraes left to play.
Eagles should thus be in good spirits as they take on a trip to Opel Arena, despite seeing narrow losses to Freiburg (1-0) and Wolfsburg (0-2) in their last two Bundesliga outings. They’ve struggled to climb the table but still sit just three points behind 6th placed Borussia Dortmund, which should be enough of a motivator by itself.
Mainz have, on the other hand, seen their share of thrillers lately and they come into the match on the back of a shock 1-5 win earned at Hoffenheim, where Levin Oztunali, Pierre Malong (x2), and Jean-Paul Boetius made it on the scoresheet. They will now want more of the same and absolutely need it to escape the immediate danger zone.
O-Fives have been tough to outgun in front of the home fans but still boast no consistency here, which will be worrying. They’ve seen Union Berlin (2-3) snatch all three points despite late goals from Onisiwo and Brosinski last time out and cutting back on their defensive slip-ups will be essential.
However, we don’t see them making it happen and we’ll now rather back Eintracht Frankfurt to capitalize on it. We’ll thus go for an Away win at 13/10 with Paddy Power and hope to see the visitors turn an exciting contest their way on the day.
With that in mind, we’re hoping to see goals once again and both sides’ recent records suggest just that. Both sides have enjoyed high-scoring clashes lately and backing Over 2.5 Goals FT now seems like buying money for old rope at 3/5 with VirginBet.
