Mainz 05 vs Eintracht Frankfurt
Germany – Bundesliga
Date: Saturday, 9 January 2021
Kick-off at 14:30 UK/ 15:30 CET
Venue: Opel Arena.
The 05ers are the worst team in the competition, barring Schalke. The former are placed second to last in the table, and have a single win all through this campaign. Note that they have also conceded the second-most number of goals of all the teams in the league.
Meanwhile, the Eagles have started to make amends for their dropped points earlier in the season, and are currently on a two-game winning run. They have also been scoring in plenty in the past few match-days.
They are just a single spot away from the European cut-off, and since six of the total seven teams above them in the table have tough fixtures this game week, it’s an opportunity for Adi Hutter’s men to make into the top-most tier of the table with a win this weekend.
They also have scored consistently against this rival in the past few years.
Considering these factors, expect Frankfurt to have the edge this Saturday at the Opel Arena.

Mainz vs Eintracht Frankfurt Prediction
The 05ers lost 5-2 on the road the last match-day, against Bayern. In the meantime, the Eagles posted a 2-1 win at home the past game week, against Leverkusen.
Going on, Svensson’s men were winless in 18 of their preceding 20 overall fixtures, and they had lost an embarrassing 15 of these match-ups. In fact, of their only two losses during this period, one had come in the DFB Pokal, against a team from the lower division.
On the other hand, their counterparts were unbeaten in eight of their past ten match-ups, and they are on a two-game winning run as well. They had also scored a total of seven goals from their last three fixtures, and had won their latest encounter on the road 0-2.
On top of that, they had also registered five of the former eight overall h2h wins as well.
Considering these observations, expect Eintracht Frankfurt to emerge victorious this Saturday.
