Mainz are struggling at the wrong end of the Bundesliga table, remaining off the bottom of the table on goal difference after winning just one of their opening 17 league games.

Long-term manager Bo Svensson has departed, being replaced by former Huddersfield Town boss Jan Siewert and the new coach will want to turn things around when  they visit Eintracht Frankfurt.

Here we pick out the best bets for this Bundesliga game

Eintracht Frankfurt vs Mainz 05 Prediction

  • Eintracht Frankfurt to win @ EVS
  • Junior Dina Edimbe to score at anytime @ 7/2

Team News

Fares Chaibi and Omar Marmoush are both missing for Eintracht Frankfurt as they are away at the Africa Cup of Nations, so on-loan Wolves striker Sasa Kalajdzic will feature up front if he can shake off a leg injury in time.

Ellyes Skhiri is also at AFCON, but Donny van de Beek will continue in midfield after joining on loan from Manchester United.

For Mainz, Jae-sung Lee is at the Asian Cup and Aymen Barkok has left for Hertha Berlin on loan.

Joshua Guilavogui and Stefan Bell may return from injury, but Nelson Weiper remains an absentee.

Match Odds

Eintracht Frankfurt can be backed at EVS for the victory, while Mainz are 13/5 outsiders and the draw is available at 5/2.

Eintracht Frankfurt to win @ EVS

Mainz have experienced struggles all over the park this season, but they have been particularly evident up front.

The visitors have only scored 14 times in 17 games, the second fewest in the Bundesliga and they face a tough challenge against Eintracht Frankfurt, who beat RB Leipzig recently.

The hosts have lost just one of their eight home games in the league this season and beat Bayern Munich 5-1 on home soil before Christmas.

Any replication of that level of form would surely be enough to see them get the better of these strugglers and further put pressure on the visiting side as they battle the drop.

Junior Dina Edimbe to score at anytime @ 7/2

Strikers Fares Chaibi and Omar Marmoush being at the Africa Cup of Nations is not ideal for the home side, especially considering that they have scored 14 goals between them this season.

However, another reliable source of goals for them has been Junior Dina Ebimbe and he can step up in their absences.

The midfielder has seven goals in all competitions and is likely to be his side’s penalty-taker in Mamoush’s absence.

The 23-year-old is progressing rapidly and could take advantage of any Mainz defensive errors.
