Freiburg hosts Mainz in round 22 of the German Bundesliga. The match will be played on Saturday, February 12th at Europa-Park Stadion (Freiburg)
Freiburg minimally lost to FC Koln in the last round (1-0). By the way, it was the second consecutive away defeat for Breisgau Brazilians. However, they are doing a little better at their native stadium. At least, they didn’t suffer a single defeat in the previous three home games (two victories and one draw). Throughout the current season, Christian Streich’s men have performed well at home: five victories, three draws, and two defeats with a goal difference of 17-11. And Freiburg is still quite high in the standings, namely, on the 5th line. After 21 rounds, Breisgau Brazilians have 33 points in their assets. I remind you that this position allows the team to play in the group stage of the Europa League. I can’t ignore the fact that Freiburg is one of the top three teams in terms of defensive reliability — only 24 goals conceded.

In the last round, Mainz proved again that it is strong on the home pitch. The Carnival club quite confidently coped with Hoffenheim (2-0). After that victory, Bo Svensson’s men have 30 points in their assets and are in tenth place in the standings. The gap to the top six is only two points. Mainz is one of the top four clubs in Germany in terms of home results. But away statistics are very bad. The Carnival club earned only six points in ten away matches (two victories and eight defeats with a goal difference of 9-18). And the last five away games ended in defeats.
The head-to-head match between Freiburg and Mainz in the first part of the German championship ended in a goalless draw. In the last Bundesliga draw, Mainz was stronger than Freiburg in two games (1-3 and 1-0). Of course, Breisgau Brazilians will try to make amends for the defeat to FC Koln in the last round (1-0). The only way to do this is to earn three points. And I remind you once again that Streich’s men show quite good football at their native stadium. At the same time, Mainz won only two out of ten away games. Do not forget that Freiburg scored 17 goals in ten home matches. And Mainz conceded 18 goals in ten away games. I admit that the hosts will score more than once.
