MAZ Vs FRK Dream11 Team, Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: Revitalised Mainz look to act as a roadblock to Frankfurt when the two sides lock heads today.
Riddled, stricken and beleaguered by injuries, Mainz found themselves unravelling in the ongoing season of the Bundesliga. At a time when nothing was going right for the outfit, the unit managed to pull off a stunning result the last time around as they thumped Hoffenheim 5-1, a win which provided the side with just the shot in the arm they were looking for.
A pivotal win for the side, today’s hosts will be looking to use that unprecedented performance as a foundation to bolster their season and make massive strides in the points tally. Sitting on the brink of the relegation spots with just the sole point keeping them above the last three spots, the side will be well aware that their season can continue to stumble with a defeat today, one they’ll be looking to avoid when they face off against Frankfurt.
What will buoy Mainz ahead of today’s upcoming encounter is not only their rejuvenated showing the last time around but the fact that Frankfurt themselves are in callous and appalling form at the moment. The side did manage to curb Arsenal to a 2-2 draw in the Europa League but the result did little to disguise the fact that they have lost two straight matches in the league to fall down into 10th place.
Defeated 2-0 by Wolfsburg the last time around, for Frankfurt the fallout from three defeats in their last five matches have seen them cut short their chances of consolidating a spot in the echelons of the points tally. For them, the three points are equally integral as they are for Mainz, a match which is set to be a closely contested affair given the ramifications stemming out of it for either side.

MAZ Vs FRK Dream11 Goal-Keeper
One thing which is a foregone conclusion in this encounter is the fact that Mainz are set to concede atleast the one goal. There defensive setup is absurd and abject, one which has been the main reason for ther predicament this season, a set of events which leads us to their goal-keeper in the form of Robin Zentner.
The player comes imbued with a skill set which has seen him step upto the mantle and act as a crucial figure for them with the slew of saves he’s pulled off, seeing us repose faith in him for this tie.
MAZ Vs FRK Dream11 Defenders
If any side is going to be able to come out of today’s clash with a cleansheet, it’s going to be the visiting setup in the form of Frankfurt. It sees us get in the two defenders from their side for this one with us beginning with Martin Hinteregger whose four goals made him the first name on our minds for this outing.
He’s going to be partnered by Makoto Hasebe for the day while from the other side of the compartment we have gone in with the sole pick n the form of Moussa Niakhate. He’s a defender of the attacking persuasion, someone who can meticulously maraud down the park and provide ample assistance to their attacking soirees to make him our pick of the day.
MAZ Vs FRK Dream11 Midfielders
At a time when Mainz were regressing, waning and wavering, the 5-1 win they pulled off the last time around provided a glimmer of chance to the setup. It not only sparked confidence in the side but in us as well and with Frankfurt leaking goals at will recently, we envisage Mainz emulating their rousing attacking performance from the last clash.
It sees us go in with three goals man, Jean-Paul Boetius for this encounter along with Pierre Kunde who has scored twice for this outfit. From Frankfurt meanwhile we have divulged in the selections of Gelson Fernandes and Daichi Kamada, two players who are set to make the most of a disgruntled and despondent defensive setup infront of them.
MAZ Vs FRK Dream11 Strikers
His side’s leading goal scorer with the 6 goals and 1 assist, Goncalo Paciencia is all set to pile on the misery on what can be best described as paper thin defensive organisation of Mainz. The side have faltered and wavered infront of vicious strikers and wit Paciencia coming bearing all those traits, he becomes a must have option from the side for the day.
Andre Silva will be his partner today while from Mainz we have gone in with their leading scorer with the four goals, Robin Quaison for this encounter.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Paciencia is coming in to captain our unit while Quaison is our vice-captain.
