Mainz Vs SC Freiburg Head To Head :
Mainz hasn’t beaten some other side as frequently in the Bundesliga as they have Freiburg (multiple times). Only against Hoffenheim have the 05ers scored more goals in the Bundesliga than against Freiburg (48).
In their 13 Bundesliga home games against Freiburg, Mainz has only lost one, a 2-1 defeat in January 2020. Freiburg is Mainz’s only top-flight opponent against which they have not kept more clean sheets at home (8 like against Monchengladbach).
For the first time this season, Mainz is unbeaten in their last five Bundesliga games. They last went longer without losing in a top-flight game from March to May 2021 under Bo Svensson (9 games in a row).
From their seven games in the second half of the season, Mainz (16, like Bayern) has scored more points than Borussia Dortmund (19). This feat was only accomplished by the 05ers in the top division in 2006-07. At the MEWA-ARENA, Mainz has won each of their last four Bundesliga matches, keeping two clean sheets in those contests.

Aggressor Jonathan Burkhardt is as yet sidelined for Mainz, as is midfielder Brajan Gruda. Mainz’s streak in the Bundesliga, which began with a 1-1 draw against Hertha Berlin the previous weekend, now stands at five games, and a victory on Sunday would bring them within six points of fifth-place Freiburg.

Mark Flekken, Lukas Kuebler, Matthias Ginter, Manuel Gulde, Christian Guenter, Maximilian Eggestein, Nicolas Hoefler, Ritsu Doan, Lucas Hoeler, Vincenzo Grifo, and Michael Gregoritsch could start the game in a 4-2-3-1 formation, in our opinion.
