Mainz vs Eintracht Frankfurt
Germany – 1. Bundesliga
Date: Monday, 2 December 2019
Kick-off at 19:30 UK / 20:30 CET
Venue: Opel Arena (Mainz).
Mainz 05 were just too hot to handle in Achim Beierlorzer’s first game in charge. And now, with Eintracht Frankfurt without a win on the road against this foe in the past decade, a second consecutive win is certainly looming large for the hosts this week.

Mainz vs Eintracht Frankfurt Prediction
Mainz 05 hit the headlines last week after they upset the odds to pull off a thumping 5-1 win Hoffenheim on the road. Despite being a man down at the end of the opening forty-five minutes, the hosts showed no signs of slowing down, with four of their five goals coming post the restart.
The victory was certainly a much-needed breather for the home side who were on a two-match losing streak prior to that latter matchup.
On the other hand, Eintracht Frankfurt managed to muster a comeback against English outfit Arsenal, a side to which they had previously lost 3-0 in the reverse fixture. The guests were trailing by a goal at the break, but a second-half brace courtesy of Daichi Kamada ensured that all three points went to Germans.
Be that as it may, the guests have not been faring well in the Bundesliga lately. Their last clash at home saw them at the losing end of a 2-0 scorecard to Wolfsburg, prior to which Freiburg took them down with a narrow 1-0 scoreline.
With the visiting contingent admitting defeat in four of their previous five outings in the first division as well, the tag of favorites most certainly goes to Mainz 05 in this one.
However, the hosts have been alternating between wins and defeats in their past five clashes on home soil. Moreover, their previous two h2h meetings here in a running have witnessed both teams share the spoils. Hence, the safest punt would be opting for a double chance.
Furthermore, Mainz have just not looked organized at the back, even on their own turf. They have conceded a goal or more in each of their previous five matchups here. Meanwhile, Eintracht Frankfurt have been consistent in finding the back of the net in each of their last five visits here.
As such, expect neither side to walk away with a clean sheet intact this Monday.
