Eintracht Frankfurt vs Mainz 05
Date: Tuesday, 20th December 2016.
Kick-off: 19:00 UK
Venue: Commerzbank-Arena, Frankfurt am Main.
The two teams will enter the game in a different moods, since Mainz 05 were victorious against Hamburger SV over the weekend, while Eintracht Frankfurt suffered a disappointing defeat to Wolfsburg away from home.
Whereas Niko Kovac can be very happy about his defensive line which looks to be super solid in the recent period, the attacking line is what gives Croat manager the headaches. Frankfurt failed to find the net in consecutive games with Hoffenheim and Wolfsburg and the top priority for Kovac and his men will be to score against the team which conceded at least a goal ion seven of the last eight Bundesliga matches on road.
Mainz 05 have a poor record in matches away from home, but the manager Martin Schmidt is optimistic ahead of the visit to Commerzbank-Arena after a decent display his players showed over the weekend when they managed to come back from a goal down in the first half to win the match against HSV comfortably in the second. Danny Latza played his best match of the season completing the hat-trick for Mainz.
