Mainz vs Freiburg
Date: Friday, 5 April 2019
Kick-Off at 19:30 UK / 20:30 CET
Venue: OPEL ARENA (Mainz).
Mid-table neighbours Mainz and Freiburg will open proceedings in Bundesliga Matchday No 28 on Friday night at OPEL ARENA. The visitors will come into the match in much higher spirits following a shocking 1-1 draw to reigning champions and title chasers Bayern Munich in the previous round.
Bresigau-Brasilianer are unbeaten in last three league affairs. It is a super impressive run if we know they played the likes of Hertha BSC (a 2-1 win at home), Borussia Monchengladbach (a 1-1 draw on the road) and Bayern Munich (a 1-1 draw on the home patch).
The team led by Christian Streich should thus have a nice opportunity to keep such splendid form going here against Mainz. The hosts lost four on the bounce in Bundesliga and they scored only two goals in the process. The O-Fives were super vulnerable at the back with nine goals conceded in last two defeats to Bayern Munich and Werder Bremen.
Mainz vs Freiburg: Head-to-head
Mainz took a 1-3 victory on the road when they visited Freiburg’s Schwarzwald-Stadion in the first half of the season.
Four of last six H2H games these two sides played in Bundesliga saw goals scored at both ends.
Draw was the most frequent of outcomes in the history of their clashes at OPEL ARENA (7 draws, 6 wins for Mainz and 3 for Freiburg).
Mainz vs Freiburg: Prediction
The visitors are the form favourites, but numbers speak against them ahead of this tie. They only won 2 of 13 league matches on the road in this term of Bundesliga. Furthermore, they picked up no more than 3 wins in 16 away clashes against the O-Fives.
Mainz generally play much better on the home court where they lost just four games so far in the season (to the likes of Dortmund, Bayern Munich, Bayer Leverkusen and Borussia Monchengladbach). Based on everything written above, draw seems to be the closest of three outcomes and we will go for it as the main betting prediction here.
