Mainz are still fighting for their safety this season and will hope to win this encounter against a Frankfurt side that has secured their safety for next season.

Mainz are currently 15th in the league table with 34 points, the same number of points as Hamburg who are currently 16th and in the relegation playoff spot.

They have managed just 9 wins from 32 games all season and are without a win in their last 3 league fixtures.

They have only 1 win from their last 6 home games, losing 4 of those games including their last home game against Borussia Monchengladbach.

Eintracht Frankfurt are currently occupying 11th spot in the Bundesliga table after picking up 41 point from 32 games.

They are currently 5 points short of European qualification and 7 points off the relegation places, which makes them comfortable as the season comes to a close.

Their recent form however is not great – they have lost 4 of their last 6 league games and come into this fixture off the back of 2 consecutive losses in the league.

Their away form is also underwhelming – they have lost their last 5 away games in the league.
