Our football match prediction:
Saturday’s football match at Jonathan-Heimes-Stadion am Bollenfalltor pits together Darmstadt and Mainz. The Lilywhites aim to escape the relegation zone, but, as things stand now, they will drop to 2. Bundesliga at the end of the season. The rock-bottom team have no other choice but to go all guns blazing at Mainz in Saturday’s game and we predict that the hosts will fight tooth and nail against die Nullfunfer. Mainz have been totally unpredictable this season and they have been having their ups and downs of late. Following a shocking loss to Werder Bremen at their Opel Arena, Martin Schmidt’s team upset Bayer Leverkusen on the road, while sharing the spoils with Wolfsburg at the weekend in front of home fans. The visitors aim to move away from the danger zone and we predict that they will adopt an attack-minded approach in Saturday’s game against the relegation strugglers.
