Mainz: Great fighting spirit
Although there was only a top-half finish on the line, Mainz did brilliantly pull off the upset and beat champions Bayern Munich, 3-1. They then doubled that fun with another victory against relegation-threatened Hertha Berlin. While those wins served to end a five-game winless skid, boss Bo Svensson isn’t likely to let his players take their feet off the gas
Svensson has received a league-high seven bookings for a coach this season, just to give you an idea of how involved he is and how much energy he’s consuming in every single game. Mainz now sits ninth in the standings with 45 points, seven behind seventh-placed FC Koln.
Despite nothing to play for in their final game of the season, the six points earned in their previous two fixtures are evidence that Mainz are continuing to fight to achieve the highest finish possible. They’re only able to get into eighth place by leapfrog past Hoffenheim, but a great improvement over their 12th-place standing last season.
Joining in January 2021, when Mainz had just six points after 14 games, Svensson steered them to a somewhat unlikely safety. There was solid form in the second half of the season as they stabilize defensively and sealed huge wins against Bayern Munich, RB Leipzig, and Wolfsburg. Now under Svensson, Mainz lost only once in their last 11 games of the 2020/21 campaign. Mainz may fight for the European spots next season. There’s a great spirit inside this team, and if you’re brave, include them in your soccer picks and parlays.
Frankfurt finalists in Europa League
Eintracht were 1-0 winners against West Ham United to seal a 3-1 victory on aggregate to qualify for final of the Europa League. They will play Rangers at Seville’s Estadio Ramon Sanchez-Pizjuan trying to become the first winners of the competition from Germany.
Eintracht returned for a third Europa League group campaign in four seasons after their fifth-place finish in the German top-flight league. Remember last summer, they replaced coach Adi Hutter with another Austrian, Oliver Glasner. Glasner was in charge of fourth-placed Wolfsburg the last term. This season, they risked their entire domestic league trying to go all the way and lift the UEL trophy. Now, here they are, in the final of the competition, If they win it, they will join the top four teams in the Bundesliga in the Champions League groups.
Sunday’s visitors are winless in their last seven league outings, a complete contrast to their impressive displays in Europe (a two-legged triumph over Barcelona and the previous victory over West Ham). Although the focus may be elsewhere, Glasner and Frankfurt will be looking to take some momentum into the final against the Scottish champions, so an improved domestic performance will certainly be required in Bundesliga season’s final game.
Diant Ramaj and Jesper Lindstrom remain sidelined, and they could be joined by Erik Durm (illness), who missed the last game. The likes of Filip Kostic and Daichi Kamada will be in line for rests should Glasner opt to rotate. Unfortunately, Martin Hinteregger was injured against West Ham will also miss this clash. If you’re betting online, know that we’ve cashed many tickets in recent months fading Eintracht and we will do it again.
Mainz vs Frankfurt Head-to-Head
The Mewa Arena has been a fortress for Mainz, with just one of the last 13 visiting sides coming away with a victory. They’re one of the best home teams in the league, with 10 wins in 16 games in front of their fans (31 goals scored in the process). On the other side, for a Europa League finalist, Eintracht’s road form is poor. They dropped points in 10 out of 16 away fixtures, and conceded 25 goals in the process. They managed to beat Mainz, 1-0, on home soil in the reverse fixture, but they’ve won just once in their last 13 visits to the Mewa Arena.

Mainz vs Frankfurt Predictions
The hosts enter this clash favored, priced at -155 on the three-way moneyline according to the latest soccer odds while the goal line is set at 3½.
Given Mainz’s superb home record, they should be the team to bet, but at -155? Nope, so we’ll try to find another value. Even Mainz to score over 1½ goals on their own is priced at -180. We can’t touch it. Eintracht have nothing to play for, but we expect them to play a good game and build some sort of confidence for next Thursday’s Europa League final.
That doesn’t mean we will back them to beat Mainz in this one, but we do expect them to find the back of the net. That’s why for our official pick with are going with a combo bet.
