The eagles will be keen to redeem themselves back if they don’t want to give away their slot on UEFA Europa League next season. Niko Kovac’s club is tied with Borussia Dortmund in terms of point and is only two points away from FC Cologne. The pressure in this match is within the squad as they are experiencing a winless drought on their last three matches.
The disappointing fact is that they failed to score on their rallies over Hoffenheim and the Wolves. They even given away a goal to Wolfsburg that helped them escape the relegation zone.
The challenge is on for them to climb a safe position on the league ranking if they are aiming to finish it big this season. Stepping up their game will be needed, they need to be consistent and at the same time find the open man that will open-up a goal for them.
The Carnival Club’s primary problem is that they had a poor performance away from home, which will be the advantage of the home team. Their recent success from HSV will motivate them to go for a back to back win. All eyes will be on Danny Latza after his magnificent hat trick on their recent game.
Mainz just like their rivals will need to conceal a lot of goals as FC Cologne holds a four point deficit away from them. Their current ranking can either be retained or they might fall down as they have the same point with both Bayer Leverkusen and Freiburg.
Stadium advantage will be the reason why Eintracht Frankfurt will be the favorite to win this game considering their good record at home. They haven’t received a defeat at the Commerzbank-Arena, which they want to keep clean as the competition progresses.
