The Germans have a variety of traditions – including in sport. In football, this means that every regular Bundesliga fixture takes place mostly on a Saturday. That will be the case now, and the encounter between Freiburg and Mainz is one of the others. Who can win this encounter? The website has their own predictions for this clash on February 12, 2022.

Freiburg look like they want to capitulate in the Champions League
The Braichsgau Braiburg are generally regarded as a mid-table side in German football. But this season, many clubs that are traditionally regarded as 3rd or 4th place contenders (under Bayern and Borussia Dortmund) are in fact failing the season. And that gives a unique chance to teams like Christian Streich’s charges. Except that this side don’t seem particularly prepared for that. In the last four rounds, Freiburg have won only once, against Stuttgart, who are now relegated to the fight for survival. In the last round there was another “ram”, 0-1 against Cologne. Now the club is out of the top 4 – will they ever get back there?
Mainz won last round, but is unlikely to take any chances
The Carnival players were given Bo Svensson a year ago. The Dane immediately gave the team, which was in danger of relegation, some organised, sensible football. And with no problem he lifted them into the middle of the table. It was curious to see whether the progress would continue, but in the new draw the team looks frankly unstable. Victories and defeats are now evenly matched, with 9 in 21 games played, keeping them midway through the table, with 30 points under their belt. In principle, the Eurocup contenders are not yet that far behind, by 2-3 points. But it should not be forgotten that before the last round victory (they outplayed Hoffenheim, scoring in the 79th and 83rd minutes), Mainz lost both in the cup and in the championship.
Mainz have learned to play successfully against this opponent in recent times. Last year, the Carnavaliers won both of their games against their opponent. True, there was a zero draw in September, with Freiburg looking no worse than their opponent away.
Freiburg is seen as the favourite of the pairing. But more importantly, Mainz is a typically “home” team, and now they will play away. So let’s bet on the home team to win with a handicap of “0” (odds – 1.6).
