Eintracht Frankfurt and Mainz 05

Match Date: 05 April 2014 (local time)

Venue: Commerzbank Arena

 

Mainz 05 is looking to the possibility of making an impression to feature in a bigger arena after dominating the match against Augsburg. The victory earned them 3 valuable points that made them a notch closer to the dream of participating in the Europa League.

 

With 5 more matches left, Mainz simply need to collect more wins and they are off to the international arena. Its closest rival, Borussia Monchengladbach is just a point ahead of them and apparently, this lead can be easily overturned.

 

But Mainz must be extra cautious as they take the trail to the international scene. Their upcoming matches will not be an easy one as they are pitted to go against the likes of Borussia Monchengladbach and Borussia Dortmund. Given the impressive resumes of these clubs, Mainz can only expect the worse. But prior to Dortmund and Monchengladbach, perhaps the club needs to direct their focus first to Eintracht Frankfurt.

 

Frankfurt is keen on entering the top 10. It currently occupies the 11th spot of the table and brags 3 wins, 2 losses and a draw. While this may not be the best, Mainz cannot underestimate Frankfurt as they share a similar team form with them.

 

Given this aspect at hand, Mainz does not become an automatic sports betting favorite in this match. The likelihood of forcing a draw is high and if Mainz is still eager to appear in the international scene, they need to be more cautious and wary of their planned strategies and moves.

 

Prediction:  Draw
