• The only time Frankfurt have triumphed in Mainz was a second-round German Cup victory in 1986 (1-0 a.e.t). If Eintracht win today, they will go above Mainz in the table.
  • The last time Eintracht failed to win in the Bundesliga after leading by two goals was on April 24th 2010 in a 3-3 draw in Mainz.
  • Mainz have won just one of their last eight games (D1, L6) – 2-0 against Braunschweig.
  • Eintracht are without a win in six games. After drawing four games in a row, Frankfurt have now lost their last two.
  • The last four late goals that Frankfurt have conceded have cost them valuable points. Their opponents have scored late equalisers three times, with Maximilian Arnold’s goal last week earning a win for Wolfsburg.
  • Frankfurt are the only Bundesliga side yet to win a point after going behind. Armin Veh’s side have trailed five times, with each game ending in defeat.
  • Together with Bayern and Leverkusen, Mainz have conceded the fewest goals from set-pieces. Their opponents have netted just twice from dead-ball situations this season.
  • Nicolai Müller was a Frankfurt-youth player, before leaving the club for SpVgg Greuther Fürth in the summer of 2003. Stefan Bell was on loan at Frankfurt from Mainz for the first half of 2011/12, but made just two second-division appearances for them.
