Next Sunday at 3:30pm GMT, on matchday 15 of the Bundesliga, we will see Mainz play Frankfurt at the OPEL Arena.

Champion’s League hopefuls Frankfurt, travel to Mainz on Sunday, as fourth takes on eleventh in the League.

Mainz’s campaign so far has seen them accrue 18 points this season

Mainz will be keen to retain their winning form, having beaten Schalke 1-0 in their last fixture.

Also, with an unfortunate Mainz that has not managed to win in their last League so far, Bo Svensson’s men form is worryingly poor. They should solve their trend if they don’t want to occupy the lasts places in the League Table. Now they have 5 matches won, 6 games lost and 3 duels drawn; that’s why they currently sit in eleventh place, with a total of 18 points having won five games, drawn three meetings, and lost six games.

Playing at home, Mainz have won one game, drawn three matches, and lost two meetings.

Winning this fixture will see Mainz on 21 points.

Bo Svensson will be forced to make changes to the plans for his squad, as injury or illness has depleted him of two of his Mainz players.

Eintracht Frankfurt arrive at this match, having secured 26 points so far this season

Frankfurt come to this match on the back of a victory, having beaten Hoffenheim 4-2 at Commerzbank Arena.

Also, Frankfurt keep finding ways to win, having secured eight victories in their last 11 fixtures is astonishing this season and they are looking worthy of the aspiration to qualify for Champion’s League football. With 26 points, they currently sit fourth in the League. The breakdown for the team’s record is 8 wins, 4 losses and 2 draws having won eight matches, drawn two meetings, and lost four matches.

Playing away from home, Frankfurt have won four meetings, drawn one game, and lost one game.

Victory for Eintracht Frankfurt would take their points tally to 29 so far this season.

Good Attacking Performance

This has been a good season so far for Frankfurt, in terms of goals scored (31). This season, their stand-out attacking players have been Daichi Kamada (7), Jesper Lindstrom (6), and Randal Kolo Muani (4). Teams that leak goals on a consistent basis, don’t tend to win anything, such is the situation with Frankfurt so far, having conceded 23 goals in their last fixtures so far.

Frankfurt’s ever growing list of players missing due to injury or illness to be a concern for Oliver Glasner, ahead of this Sunday’s fixture against their opponents.
