Our prediction for this Bundesliga match:
Eintracht will be looking to retain their spot in top four when they host Mainz at their Deutsche Bank Park. Die Adler have been impressive at home ground of late, with the team eyeing their fourth consecutive triumph on home soil. Evan NDicka is banned for the match, while all Younes, Ache, Makanda, and Toure are sidelined through injuries. As always, a man to watch in the home team will be Serbia international Filip Kostic, who is enjoying yet another season to remember.
Die Nullfunfer, on the other hand, have been in a splendid form in the season finale, and, as a result, they will almost certainly compete in the Bundesliga next season. Considering that Eintracht Frankfurt want this win more than Mainz, we predict that the visitors are going to return home empty-handed. In the first half of the season die Adler defeated die Nullfunfer 2-0 at Opel Arena.
