Frankfurt vs Mainz Free Betting Tips
Frankfurt wants to finally pocket the relegation
An exciting duel is on the program in the Commerzbank-Arena and before the game Frankfurt vs. Mainz’s betting odds do not suggest that there is a clear favorite in this game. Bookmakers trust Mainz somewhat, or, to put it another way, don’t really trust the positive tendency at Frankfurt.
With the victory in the catch-up game in Bremen, the Hessians have maneuvered themselves into a very good position, while Mainz is still plagued by the worst relegation concerns. After all: The 05ers often look very good against Frankfurt – is this a successful experience?
A look at the Bundesliga table shows that Frankfurt already has a solid cushion on relegation ranks with 35 points. Mainz, on the other hand, is only just ahead of the relegation site with 28 points and must be careful not to be passed on further.
Frankfurt can therefore make a preliminary decision in the fight against relegation, while Mainz will most likely have to tremble to the end. The pressure therefore lies more with the guests, who are nevertheless confident.
Frankfurt – Statistics & current form
In the middle of the second half of the season, Eintracht Frankfurt staggered further and further, the relegation zone was getting closer and closer after the defeat in Munich and the draw against SC Freiburg. But the victories in Wolfsburg and Bremen ensured that the team coached by Adi Hütter could breathe.
The Hessians are not satisfied with this season. It should be played for Europe, in the end it is glad that the relegation could be averted early, even if this is not the case mathematically. Overall, too little was brought out of a very dynamic and powerful team; playful elements were often missing.
Nevertheless, the trend is positive, the development in the last two games has been in the right direction and the huge pressure is falling. That’s why before the game Frankfurt vs. Mainz our tip that the hosts will decide the game for themselves.
Frankfurt wants the “perfect week”
In Wolfsburg, Frankfurt struggled for a long time and often bit their teeth on a defensive, well-positioned opponent, but against Bremen the Hessians were at least equivalent over long stretches of the game, and then set the decisive accents in the second half.
In addition, it is positive to note that the game against Bremen was the first since the beginning of February against Augsburg, in which Frankfurt could play to zero. As a rule, the defensive is fragile, which can be particularly dangerous against a strong opponent from Mainz. That’s why before the game Frankfurt vs Mainz our value tip that over 3.5 goals will be scored in this game.
However, Europe has not yet been written off entirely at Eintracht Frankfurt. The gap to seventh place is already seven points, but the rest of Frankfurt’s program with games against Schalke and Paderborn is not particularly hard. With a series at the end, at least the top half of the table could still become a realistic goal for the eagles.
The worries of Adi Hütter are also becoming less and less. With Paciencia and Fernandes only two players are missing, Dost is getting fitter and the options on the bench are anything but bad. Chandler should move into the team for the recently somewhat weak Touré.
Probable lineup of Frankfurt:
Trapp – Abraham, Hasebe, Hinteregger – Chandler, Rode, Kohr, Kostic – Kamada, Gacinovic – Andre Silva

Mainz – Statistics & current form
For the guest from Mainz, it is currently only about relegation. Actually coach Achim Beierlorzer has a very talented team from which much more could be got, but many defensive mistakes and the ever increasing pressure make the situation so complicated.
Instead of developing a flexible ball possession system, Beierlorzer currently has to deal with the typical virtues of the relegation battle. And that doesn’t seem to have reached every player yet, which is why Frankfurt vs. Mainz our prediction is that the hosts will decide the game for themselves.
The game against TSG Hoffenheim last weekend is emblematic of the Mainz season. Mainz started very concentrated, but lost the points it deserved due to lack of concentration. In the end, Hoffenheim won 1-0, you couldn’t buy anything for positive approaches in Mainz.
Mainz urgently needs results
The time for positive approaches is over anyway. Mainz could only win two games in the second half of the season, the situation is precarious. Nevertheless, this team can always be trusted, as shown by the game before the Frankfurt vs.. Mainz also the odds that do not completely push the guest into the outsider role.
Another problem for the Mainz team in the struggle for relegation is the remaining program. Frankfurt, Augsburg, Dortmund, Bremen and Leverkusen – the tasks are tough. Little will be possible against Dortmund and Leverkusen, so it is not inconceivable that on match day 33 against Werder Bremen there will be a final relegation.
The key in the game against Frankfurt will be that Mainz dares to do more than against Hoffenheim. At the same time, balance is important, Achim Beierlorzer has to find a way to stabilize the defensive. Many goals conceded result from individual mistakes, but basically there are some processes that don’t work.
After all, Mainz now had a whole week to prepare for the opponent, while Frankfurt had to play a very difficult game for a long time during the week. Zentner and St. Juste are missing, otherwise Achim Beierlorzer is spoiled for choice.

Müller – Brosinski, Bruma, Hack, Niakhate, Aaron Martin – Fernandes, Baku, Boetius – Quaison, Mateta
