Market: Both teams to score
Odds: 2/3 @ 888sport
In a Bundesliga showdown that could prove to be another action-packed affair this weekend, Eintracht Frankfurt will welcome Mainz to Deutsche Bank Park on Saturday afternoon.
Starting with the hosts, while Eintracht Frankfurt might have claimed a much-needed 3-2 win away at Stuttgart when opening May, the Eagles certainly came crashing back down to earth last weekend. Putting in a nightmare display against Hoffenheim last time out as they suffered a 3-1 drumming at the hands of Hoffenheim, Oliver Glasner’s side have shown a string of glaring issues on either side of March’s international break. crashing out of the Champions League following a routine 5-0 drumming at the hands of Napoli, the former Wolfsburg boss finds some mounting pressure on his shoulders. Remarkably winning just a pair of their last 15 appearances across all competitions – a run that stems all the way back to February 18th – Frankfurt have also shown some continued struggles on home soil. In fact, last seen at Deutsche Bank Park playing out a 1-1 draw against Augsburg, Saturday’s hosts have won just one of their last six Bundesliga showdowns in Hesse.
As for the visitors, although Mainz might still find themselves within touching distance of breaking into the European spots, they are limping their way over the finish line. Last seen putting in another worrying display as they slumped to a shock 3-2 loss at home against Schalke, Bo Svensson’s side have picked up just a single win from any of their last five Bundesliga appearances. Likewise, signing off April with a 3-0 drumming at the hands of Wolfsburg and now shipping six strikes in their back-to-back defeats, the Reds have shown some rather glaring defensive issues since returning from March’s international break. With that run highlighted by a lively 2-2 draw against Werder Bremen on April 8th, neutrals could be treated to another enjoyable Bundesliga showdown here. With the two sides playing out a 1-1 draw when they met for their reverse top-flight meeting on November 13th, we are backing both teams to score this weekend.
