Mainz Preview – Will the 05ers bounce back from Bayern defeat?

Mainz head into this one having won just one of their last five in the league. Bo Svensson’s side gave a good account of themselves at the Allianz Arena last weekend. However, despite taking a first-half lead against Bayern Munich, the champions turned things around in the second period to pick up a 2-1 win.

Mainz have been incredible hard to topple on their own patch so far this season. Only Union Berlin have won at the Mewa Arena. However, after draws with Borussia Monchengladbach and Cologne, the recent 3-0 home win over Wolfsburg was a welcome result for the Mainz faithful.

Our betting prediction:
Both teams to score
10/11

(odds taken 1612 GMT, Monday 13 December)

 
After the narrow loss in Munich last time out, the 05ers will be desperate to get back to winning ways in this home match. The bookies are offering 4/5 for a home victory.

Hertha Berlin Preview – Can the capital club extend unbeaten run to four?

Hertha Berlin have not been an easy nut to crack of late, losing just two of their previous eight Bundesliga matches. They are unbeaten in three ahead of the midweek trip to Mainz, drawing two and winning one.

After back-to-back draws with Augsburg and Stuttgart, Berlin secured a vital victory last time out. Tayfun Korkut claimed his first win, as goals from Stevan Jovetic and Davie Selke proved to be enough to see off Arminia by two goals to nil.

In the 2019-20 season, Mainz did the double over Hertha, winning 2-1 at home and 3-1 on the road.
