Match Preview

Mainz welcome Freiburg having lost their last four Bundesliga matches. Yet the hosts have never lost at home against the visitors in the top flight (W6, D3), and have more Bundesliga wins against Freiburg than any other other club (11).
However Mainz are in torrid form, losing seven of their last eight league outings (W1, L7), failing to score in four of those games whilst conceding at least three goals in five. Furthermore, the hosts have the division’s fourth worst home attack (16 goals scored), although notably their 16 goals conceded at home is the division’s joint-fifth best tally.
Freiburg have lost just one of their last eight Bundesliga games (W2, D5, L1), and netted the opening goal within the first ten minutes in each of their last two. However they went on to concede an equaliser within 20 minutes of each goal.
On the road, the visitors are winless in their last five top-flight games (D3, L2). Freiburg failed to find the net in three of their last four away league defeats, with all four losses decided by a two-goal margin.
Players to watch: Mainz’s top league scorer, Jean-Philippe Mateta, has seven goals so far, but only two of them came at home. This game will be Nils Petersen’s (eight league goals) 100th Bundesliga appearance for Freiburg – he’s scored in three of his last four games against Mainz.
Stat attack: Mainz have been winning at half-time in just two of their 13 Bundesliga home games so far.
At home this league campaign, Mainz are yet to concede in the 15 minutes immediately following the break.
Freiburg have failed to score in two of their last three away games (D2, L1).
In every Bundesliga H2H between Mainz and Freiburg, the team that scored the opening goal has never gone on to lose the game.
