Eintracht Frankfurt vs Mainz 05 13/05/19

13 May 2019

Eintracht Frankfurt and Mainz 05 go head-to-head at the Commerzbank-Arena in what will be a must-win clash for the home side.

With two league fixtures left, the hosts sit fourth with the same point tally like Bayer Leverkusen, which is why they have to find a way to bring a four-game Bundesliga winless run to a halt (D2, L2). However, the Eagles are rocked after a disappointing Europa League elimination to Chelsea back at the midweek. Eintracht’s main strength over the past few months has been their rock-solid backline that has kept five clean sheets in Frankfurt’s last seven home outings across all competitions. Still, Adi Hütter’s men have failed to impress in the final third during that period, scoring one goal or less in five of those seven meetings. An encouraging fact for Launische Diva is that they’ve won all four of their previous H2Hs with Mainz at this venue as the visitors’ last win here dates back to 2012.

Meanwhile, comfortably sitting in the middle of the table, Die Nullfünfer can’t go up or down regardless of the outcome of this encounter. The visitors have endured mixed fortunes over their past five BL games (W2, D1, L2), with four of these matches featuring over 3.5 goals. Mainz’s frustrating league form in 2019 has seen them suffer nine defeats in 13 BL fixtures since the beginning of February (W3, D1, L9), with Sandro Schwarz’s players conceding over 1.5 match goals seven times across those failures. What’s more, ‘Karnevalsverein’ have lost all seven of their previous BL away games, scoring one goal or less in each.
