THE TEAM NEWS

EINTRACHT FRANKFURT

  • Eintracht Frankfurt made it back-to-back victories in the Bundesliga as their relegation fears were eased thanks to a 0-3 victory against Werder Bremen in midweek and they will be full of confidence as they host Mainz.
  • In a fairly even game, Frankfurt took the lead on the hour thanks to Andre Silva’s goal but with the contest still in the balance, two goals in the final 10 minutes from Stefan Ilsanker secured the three points.
  • Frankfurt will now look to make it four games unbeaten by avoiding defeat in this home contest and they will be boosted by the return of Lucas Torro after he served a one-match suspension.

MAINZ

  • Mainz were narrowly beaten in their home contest with Hoffenheim last week as they remained right in the relegation mix having failed to win for the fifth game in succession in the Bundesliga.
  • Mainz were fortunate to remain level midway through the first half as they had goalkeeper Florian Muller to thank for saving a penalty but that effort proved in vain as the visitors went ahead just before the break with that goal proving to be enough to condemn the hosts to defeat.
  • The injury news is a mixed bag for Mainz with Ji Dong-won struggling with a back issue and he looks set to miss out along with Robin Zentner and Stefan Bell as well as the suspended Ridle Baku but Jeremiah St. Juste, Alexander Hack and Danny Latza are all back in contention.

THE PREDICTION

Eintracht Frankfurt have put in three impressive performances in a row which has resulted in them collecting seven points and they will fancy their chances of improving that record as they host Mainz. The visitors have failed to win any of their last five and remain in real trouble as they come into this game just ahead of the relegation spots. They have kept just two clean sheets in their last 12 league games and with Frankfurt showing some good signs in front of goal having scored eight in their last three matches, the hosts should be too good here.
