Tip Reasoning

  • Both teams have netted in nine of Frankfurt’s last 10 competitive games.
  • Both teams have also scored in seven of Mainz’s last nine, the exceptions being their 3-0 and 4-0 thrashings of Wolfsburg and Hertha.
  • Mainz have scored 10 goals in their last five games, while Frankfurt have hammered home 14 in their last five Bundesliga outings.

Evenly matched affair should bring entertainment

Only goal difference separates Mainz and Frankfurt, in sixth and seventh in the Bundesliga respectively, with both looking to gatecrash the European spots.

Frankfurt have won five of their last six league games, including impressive 5-2 and 3-2 triumphs over Bayer Leverkusen and Borussia Monchengladbach. Oliver Glasner, who led Wolfsburg to Champions League qualification before heading to Frankfurt, has seen his side score 26 times in league action this term, a record better than all bar five Bundesliga teams.

On Saturday, Frankfurt will seek to leapfrog Bo Svensson’s Mainz, whose fantastic defensive record of just 16 goals conceded in 16 games is the second-best in the Bundesliga. However, Mainz have only won two of seven on the road this term, and both teams have netted in seven of their last nine games, excluding recent thrashings of Wolfsburg and Hertha Berlin. Furthermore, 11 of the 16 goals Svensson’s team have leaked have come on the road, and they may struggle to keep out in-form Frankfurt.

Goals likely between European contenders?

In their last five Bundesliga outings, Frankfurt have hammered home 14 goals, while Mainz have scored 10 in the same timeframe. With little to split the teams in the league table and Frankfurt being involved in some madcap games recently, it may be worth steering clear of the win markets and backing both teams to score, with over 2.5 goals being scored.

In terms of a correct score prediction, Mainz’s struggles on the road this term make a 2-1 win for the hosts a potentially solid play.
