Mainz 05 to Win
Bo Svenson's men vanquished Bayern Munich at home last time around, claiming the three points on offer in a 2-1 victory. Prior to that, they have claimed the prized scalp of RB Leipzig on their way out of the relegation slots. They are back at the Opel Arena to take on the challenge of Hertha Berlin, who are winless in their last ten away trips. The Carnival Club club will be looking to extend their seven-match winning streak under Bo Svenson and the odds are in their favour.
Total Goals: Over 2.5
The hosts have averaged 0.93 goals at home throughout the course of the 2020/21 Bundesliga campaign. However, they have buckled this trend in their last five outings, and have been involved in three fixtures seeing the Over 2.5 come true. Hertha have seen a similar return from their last five games, hitting the back of the net in all but one of these fixtures.
Both Teams to Score: Yes
While Mainz have moved out of the relegation battle with their recent performances, it is very likely fate awaiting the capital club. They have games in hand but need points to secure German top-flight football survival. They have troubled their scores in four of their five recent fixtures, and have enough in the tank to get on the scoreboard against the Carnival Club.
Mainz vs Hertha Berlin: Team News and Match Preview
RB Leipzig came to the Opel Arena but had to return empty-handed. Champions-in-waiting Bayern Munich tried their luck last weekend but they faced a similar fate. Only FC Augsburg have managed to claim all three points against Mainz 05 during this run. Bo Sevenson has managed a terrific turnaround for the Carnival Club, beating Tomas Tuchel to the honour of being the most successful Mainz coach with 28 points in 16 matches. Robin Quaison has emerged as Sevenson's midfield general and is one to look out for after scoring against Bayern Munich last Monday.
The Berliners are second-bottom but have played three games less than Arminia Bielefeld, who are four points ahead. The match played discrepancy is attributed to the coronavirus outbreak. Pal Dardai has a tough task on his hands to guide his men out of the relegation slots, given their form of just two wins from their previous 14 Bundesliga away trips. They have an exciting attack consisting of Matheus Cunha, Jhon Cordoba and Krzysztof Piatek but it is their backline that continues to hold them back.
