Mainz vs Freiburg
Germany – 1. Bundesliga
Date: Monday, 16 April 2018
Kick-Off at 19:30UK
Venue: OPEL ARENA (Mainz).
The action in the 30th round of German Bundesliga is going to be closed with a Monday evening clash between Mainz and Freiburg. This is the clash of the two relegation endangered teams and the potential win in this one should keep them away from the danger zone.
Home side is sitting on the place which would take them to the relegation playout and they are three points behind their rivals. However, their poor form is the main concern of home fans since Pablo De Blasis and the lads haven’t managed to celebrate a win in the last six occasions. Their defensive work has been pretty bad this season and they have allowed too many goals. Unlike the previous seasons, Mainz have suffered too many defeats in front of the home fans and that’s the main reason of their bad position. They need to start winning as soon as possible if they want to avoid the relegation.
Freiburg are just one place above their opposition and they are in a similar situation as Mainz. In the last six matches they have picked up only two points and have been defeated three times in a row. Christian Streich’s side hasn’t been much productive in the front, while their defence allowed too many goals. The visitors managed to get back home with a win just once, but also managed to remain undefeated six more times. They are in a very tricky position and they don’t have much space to allow poor displays anymore.
Mainz vs Freiburg: Head-to-head
In the last four occasions when these two sides met each other, both teams managed to book two wins each. Their matches are usually moderate scoring ones.
Mainz vs Freiburg: Prediction
Since both sides are in bad form and their displays are pretty poor, this one might end with a draw.
Both the hosts and the visitors are having troubles in finding the back of the oppositions’ net, therefore this one should stay below 2.5 margin.
