Eintracht Frankfurt vs Mainz 05
Date: Tuesday, 20th December 2016.
Kick-off: 19:00 UK
Venue: Commerzbank-Arena, Frankfurt am Main.
With 26 points on the board, Frankfurt are enjoying their best campaign in 23 years since Jay-Jay Okocha was in the side, but The Eagles are currently on their worst run of the season and are without a victory in three. Niko Kovac’s charges suffered a disappointing 1-0 defeat at VfL Wolfsburg last time out and will want to bounce back with a win in the derby and cement their position in the European places over the winter break.

Martin Schmidt’s men returned to winning ways at the weekend thanks to Danny Latza’s superb hat-trick in the 3-1 win over Hamburger SV. The 05ers have previously struggled away at their neighbours with just one victory in 13 competitive visits, although that one win did come on a Tuesday. A good omen, then, for the away side as they look to keep pace with the other teams vying for European qualification going into the winter break.

The head to head stats suggest Eintracht’s success since the visiting teams have only managed to win a single out of 24 games! The teams generally have 6 wins each, as Frankfurt were victorious in the last H2H game against Mainz beating them with 2 – 1 back in April this year.
Eintracht Frankfurt vs Mainz 05: Prediction
We’ll back the hosts to claim the victory as the number one betting pick because of their impressive home form in this season of Bundesliga as they are yet to suffer a defeat at Commerzbank-Arena. Alternatively, you can go with Under 2.5 goals in the match at 7/10 since Niko Kovac prefers defensively oriented formation.
