Mainz haven’t been able to stop scoring goals, finding the back of the net in one hundred percent of their last 6 matches.
They’ve managed to rack up 10 during that time while seeing the number of goals scored against them stand at 5. We shall soon see if that trend can be continued on in this game.
Looking at the pre-match facts, Mainz:
- have not lost a league tie with Hertha Berlin in their previous 3 games.
- have not been beaten in their last 3 league matches at home.

The stats don’t lie, and Hertha Berlin have been scored against in 5 of their last 6 games, seeing opposing sides hit 8 goals overall. Defensively, Hertha certainly have room for improvement.
A look at their previous results shows us that Hertha Berlin:
- haven't beaten Mainz when having played them away from home in the previous 5 league matches. They really have not been travelling well at all.
- are without a win away from home in their last 10 league games. Who knows how long it might last, too.

Team News: Mainz
Looking at personnel, there is just the sole fitness concern for the Mainz manager Bo Svensson to be concerned about thanks to an otherwise robust group. Luca Kilian (Hamstring Injury) misses out.
Team News: Hertha Berlin
Hertha BSC boss Pál Dárdai has to choose a team with limited availability. Dodi Lukebakio (Corona virus), Marvin Plattenhardt (Corona virus), Rune Jarstein (Corona virus), Eduard Löwen (Knock), Dedryck Boyata (Torn Muscle Fibre) and Luca Netz (Metatarsal Fracture) are those who can’t be considered.
We think that Hertha Berlin may find it difficult to be putting a goal past this Mainz outfit who we reckon should score one, at least.
We’re therefore tipping a highly competitive game with a 1-0 advantage for Mainz at the end of the 90.
It should be a good one.
