Today's Predictions for Mainz vs Freiburg

Mainz have won four of their last five Bundesliga assignment ahead of their clash with Freiburg on Sunday. Read our top Mainz vs Freiburg predictions for this weekend’s fixture below.

Mainz to Win

Mainz have really hit their stride in the Bundesliga, posting wins in four of their last five assignments in the division and another productive afternoon could be in the works when they host Freiburg on Sunday. The visitors have found juggling their domestic and European responsibilities tough, and they should be a little jaded following their loss to Juventus on Thursday. Mainz have enough momentum to capitalise and the first of our football predictions today recommends a stake on a home win.

Over 2.5 Goals

Mainz have been an entertaining team to watch this season, particularly at the MEWA Arena, where four of their last five fixtures have featured over 2.5 goals. Their last four tests there alone, averaged a healthy 4.0 goals per 90 minutes and Mainz could turn on the style again when they host Freiburg on Sunday. Four of the visitor’s last seven top flight contests also produced at least three goals, and our second Mainz vs Freiburg prediction forecasts more action this weekend.

Let's take a closer look at the latest markets, Mainz vs Freiburg odds and probability figures ahead of Sunday’s tussle below.

Mainz odds: 119/100 (2.19) – 45.7%

Draw odds: 51/20 (3.55) – 28.2%

Freiburg odds: 47/20 (3.35) – 29.9%

Freiburg have only a 39.9% probability of success according to the bookmakers this weekend, while both teams to score can be backed at 7/10 (1.7) which indicates we should expect both sides to get in on the act. That outcome has an implied probability of 58.8%. A correct score of 1-1 this weekend is the bookies’ plum pick at 5/1 (6.0 – 16.7%).

Mainz vs Freiburg Team News & Injuries

Read all of the latest injury updates, Mainz vs Freiburg lineups and team news for Sunday’s Bundesliga fixture below.

Mainz

Attacker Jonathan Burkhardt is still sidelined for Mainz, as is midfielder Brajan Gruda. Mainz's 1-1 draw at Hertha Berlin last weekend pushed their unbeaten streak in the Bundesliga to five matches and a victory on Sunday would put them to within six points of fifth-placed Freiburg.

Predicted Lineup for Mainz: Zentner – Hanche-Olsen, Bell, Fernandes – da Costa, Barreiro, Stach, Caci – Ingvartesen, Jae-Sung, Ajorque

Freiburg

Daniel-Kofi Kyereh is out with an ACL injury though attacker Woo-yeong Jeong is fit again following a bout of illness. Freiburg were beaten 2-0 at home by Juventus in the Europa League on Thursday, leaving them free to concentrate fully on their domestic form between now and May.

Predicted Lineup for Freiburg: Flekken – Sildillia, Ginter, Lienhart – Kubler, Eggestein, Hofler, Grifo, Gunter – Holer, Gregoritsch

Player to Watch – Andreas Hanche-Olsen

Andreas Hanche-Olsen put in another strong defensive shift for Mainz last weekend in the team’s 1-1 draw at Hertha Berlin and the Norwegian centre-half made two interceptions and completed a game-high equalling nine clearances during his impressive display. Hanche-Olsen should feature prominently again on Sunday.

Starting Lineups

Official lineups are usually released approximately one hour before kick-off.
