Freiburg vs Mainz Prediction & Match Preview

Freiburg vs Mainz
Germany – Bundesliga
Date: Sunday, 22 November 2020
Kick-off at 14:30 UK/ 15:30 CET
Venue: Schwarzwald-Stadion.

These two teams are amongst the worst in the whole competition. In fact, the Breisgau have a single win to their name all through this campaign, whereas their opposite number are placed dead last in the table, and have posted a single point on the board so far.

Defense has been a major problem for either of these squads. Till now, the two teams have combined to let in a total of 36 goals from their total 14 fixtures, and a clean sheet is the rarest of rare occurrences for both of them.

Suffice it to say that the teams are desperate for a win. Each passing game week without a victory takes them further towards relegation.

Going on, majority of h2h encounters also have had goals in plenty.

Analyzing these factors, it’s inferred that the upcoming clash will in all probability be a goal-fest.

Freiburg vs Mainz: Head-to-head (h2h)

  • Nine of the former eleven games had three or more goals.
  • Four of the preceding six encounters had goals from both teams.
  • Christian Streich’s men had scored two or more goals in four of the last five clashes.
  • The 05ers have scored two or more goals in five of the past seven meetings.
  • Since 1992, only once have the hosts failed to score at this stadium.

Freiburg vs Mainz: Prediction

The Breisgau Brazilians lost 3-0 on the road the last match-day, against Leipzig. In the meantime, Jan-Moritz Lichte’s men were held to a 2-2 draw at home, by Schalke.

Going on, Streich’s men are on a seven-game winless run, and they have conceded three or more goals in four of their former six match-ups.

At home, they are on a four-fixture winless run, and have not kept a single clean sheet all this season.

On the other hand, their opposite number are on an eight-match winless run (of which seven were losses), and they had conceded three or more goals in five of their last seven fixtures.

Moreover, on the road, they had lost six of their previous seven trips, and have conceded a total of ten goals from the last three such games as well.

Furthermore, an overwhelming majority of h2h meetings over the years have also had goals in plenty, as mentioned earlier.

Taking these stats into account, expect a high-scoring fixture this weekend at the Schwarzwald-Stadion.
