1 FSV Mainz 05 did not win six games. Only four points could be scored. Now SC Freiburg is on the doorstep. And the team from Breisgau also failed to win six games in a row. However, only two points went to the strike eleven. Will the snail race continue in the relegation battle? The Freiburg team is still in 14th place. Wolfsburg are lurking one point behind. And Mainz, the current opponent, has only three points less and the better goal difference. If things go badly, Freiburg will end up on the relegation spot after the 30th matchday. Mainz needs the support of their fans for that. It is all the more annoying that this match will take place on Monday, 16 April 2018 at 20.30 hours. Actually, this date should be reserved for the Europa League participants. For the people of Mainz, this scheduling is certainly not advantageous. Nevertheless, it is finally time to score three times again in the domestic Opel Arena to take a big step in the relegation battle.

Form curve of the teams

If we look at the form of both teams in detail, we find that both Mainz and Freiburg had only one win in the last seven games. The Mainz team adds to this record with four draws and two defeats. With Freiburg it is the other way round: two draws and four bankruptcies are added to the list.

Mainz has recorded its last victory on 16 February 2018. His opponent was Hertha BSC and in the end it was 2-0. From then on, there was no more three-way. First, the Mainz team scored a 1:1 at home against VfL Wolfsburg. Afterwards they drew again against Hamburg. No goals were scored here. Then they lost 0-1 at home against FC Schalke 04, and the Mainz team even lost 3-0 in Frankfurt. Afterwards the next zero number followed against Gladbach, which brought in another point. And finally Mainz played 1:1 in Cologne and got the fourth draw of the last six games.

Evaluation: Neither team has a good form. Mainz, however, scored more points from past matches than the Freiburgers.

Statistical and direct comparison

It is not only the current form that allows hardly any insight into the winner. Also the direct comparison is a draw. Because Mainz won eleven games against Freiburg. The Freiburg team also won eleven games against the Mainz team. In addition, eight draws remain in the comparison. And so the last five duels closed from the point of view of the FSV: 1:2, 0:1, 4:2, 3:2 and 0:1. Freiburg is slightly overweight. But what does it look like if we only consider the home games of the Mainz team? Then we can look at the following results: 4:2, 2:2, 2:0, 2:2 (2:3 n. V.) and 0:0. Three draws and two home wins.

SC Freiburg currently ranks fourteenth. Six wins and eleven defeats are followed by twelve draws. With only 26 goals the second worst offensive of the league is set, which is also enormously dependent on Nils Petersen. 48 goals are equal to the second worst defence. Furthermore, there was only one win and six draws with seven defeats away. The goal record shows 14:33 goals ahead.

Evaluation: Freiburg has won only one of 14 games away. Mainz have not lost at home in regular playing time since eight games.

Recommended bets and odds

Mainz has not lost eight games in a row against Freiburg. And the Freiburgers only won one away game this season. This speaks for the double chance 1X, which at Tipico is even equipped with a 1.35. The draw stands out in comparison (Mainz home games) and in the last games of the Mainz team. For this Betvictor grants a 3.40.

Furthermore we do not see both teams scoring a goal. This result would have applied in four of the last five league games of both clubs. The quote of 1.90 for Tipico is our recommendation.

Assessment: Actually we see the double chance 1X most likely to happen. Tipico scores with a 1,35 as odds.
