Our football match prediction:
Thanks to a win over Eintracht Frankfurt Mainz secured yet another Bundesliga survival. Die Nullfunfer proved their worth in the 4-2 triumph over die Adler and, no doubt, they are brimming with confidence ahead of Saturday’s football match against Koln, who are eyeing a place in the Europa League. Only a win counts for the hosts this time out and we predict that they will go all-out attack against Mainz. A lively contest appears on the horizon, but there is every chance Koln will emerge triumphant in Saturday’s clash at RheinEnergieStadion. The two teams played out a goalless draw at Opel Arena earlier this season, but we are positive that the Billy Goats will pick up vital three points from the last match of the season. You should bear in mind that Koln recorded a 4-3 victory over Werder Bremen in their last home fixture in the German elite division.
