Our Prediction:

Mainz will win

Mainz – Hertha Berlin Match Prediction | 25-08-2019 09:30

The attacking line with Vedad Ibisevic (who scored six goals this season), Salomon Kalou and Julian Schieber looks amazing. Hertha are challenging the top part of the table positions in spite of the fact that most experts saw them battling for avoiding the relegation places in Bundesliga. The Hungarian manager Pal Dradai can be very happy with how his team looks like this season.

Mainz are rarely the better side in terms of attacking stats in fact, they rank 13th overall for shots on target and tight results against some of the weaker sides in the division, such as a 1-1 draw away to newly promoted Nurnberg, shows how little they have to offer. Mainz 05 are at the opposite end of the scales. Panic mode is yet to set in as the 05ers stand 9th in the table, but youd have to say that even that is a fortunate position to be in given how theyve played. A lack of goals are the main concern the 05ers have only managed four in six games so far. Sandro Schwarzs men are tough to watch and fell to a second defeat away to Schalkelast weekend. Have the 05ers riden a wave of form that cant be maintained?

Despite producing a fine performance against Bayern Munchen at Allianz Arena, Hertha eventually suffered a 1-0 loss to the mighty Bavarians on Matchday 23. The capital club aim to return to winning ways and seeing that Mainz often struggle on the travels, it is no surprise Pal Dardais troops are seen as favourites to win Saturdays football match. A man to watch in the home team will be Slovakia international Duda, who has netted 10 goals in the national championship so far this term. Mainz, on the other hand, did well to beat Schalke 3-0 in front of home fans at the weekend, but as previously mentioned, their away record is anything but good and, taking everything into account, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the hosts, who are determined to secure yet another top-table finish.

Prediction Hertha Berlin-FSV Mainz 05: 1x (Odd 1.29)

Hertha Berlin made headlines last weekend by becoming the first team to get the better of Niko Kovacs Bayern Munich. Summer reinforcements, such as loanees Javairo Dilrosun (from Man City) and Marko Grujic (from Liverpool), have added strength to an already well-bonded side and the Berliners look to have a certain spark to them this season. Coach Pal Dardai is unlikely to make too many changes to his team even with the return of Australian international Mathew Leckie from injury as midfielder Ondrej Duda and captain Vedad Ibisevic have been in top form the pair have already scored nine goals between them, with the former standing as top scorer in the Bundesliga (5 goals). A 2-0 win at home to the German champions sees Hertha joint second ahead of Saturday and marked theirbest-ever start to a Bundesliga season 13 points from six matches (W4 D1 L1).

In 2009 he joined fellow Australian outfit Adelaide United and he netted eight goals in 35 league appearances for the club between 2009 and 2011. In 2011 he decided to move to Europe as he signed a contract with Bundesliga side Borussia Mgladbach. Bundesliga. In 2013 he joined FSV Frankfurt and he played 31 games for the club in the 2. He scored first goal for the club in a 5-2 win over Aberdeen (friendly) on 9 July, 2011.

Matthew Leckie has 13 caps for Australia U-20 and he made his debut for the senior team on 14 November, 2012 in a friendly against Republic of Korea. The 181-cm-tall attacker, who is capable as playing as a winger as well, has a contract with Ingolstadt which expires on 30 June, 2018. On 7 May, 2014 he signed a three-year deal with Ingolstadt and he has been playing for die Schanzer ever since.

During first forty-five minutes they had only two attempts on target and one of them was successful 0:1. Berliners scored again in fifty-eighth minute and Salomon Kalou was the one who scored and brought important victory to his team. Hertha played that match away and they decided to play cautiously. In twenty-second round they played against Bayer Leverkusen. Hertha scored seventeen goals at home while they conceded sixteen times. Hertha is in eleventh place with thirty points. The scorer was Valentino Lazaro. If Berliners play the way they can, then new three points are guaranteed. Next match is against Mainz which are in horrible away shape.

Hertha are displaying all the signs of a team ready to take the league by storm and whats worse for Mainz is that they have a pretty poor track record against them the 05ers have won in just 3 of their 14 meetings at home to Hertha (W3 D7 L4).Mainzs weakness this season has been in a lack of goalscorer and their weak offensive record the second worst in the Bundesliga (4 goals scored) will obviously bring down their results in time.With three of Mainzs four goals this season also having come from substitutes, it says something about the quality that they have available to field in the first place. Its simply hard to look past the side in form. Our prediction: 2-1 Hertha. Mainz also lack of experience in their squad, having sent out their youngest ever team this season, which should see them struggle against a Hertha side brimming with it.

Consequently, the visitors recent form is the one to keep an eye on. Mainz were one of the weaker sides overall in the Bundesliga last season not much has changed in that respect over the summer and even though they were stronger at home, they still lost in 41% of their Opel Arena outings (W7 D3 L7). Well, after looking over everything, the value has to be in Hertha for Saturday. A response to that could be that Mainz have won in 4 of their last 6 Bundesliga outings at home (W4 D1 L1), including two out of three in the 18/19 season, but the quality of the opposition beaten doesnt make this particularly outstanding. So where does that leave us ahead of this game? And when you look at overall form for this season, the teams that Hertha have faced and beaten (Bayern Munich, Borussia Monchengladbach, Schalke 04 and Nurnberg) compared to Mainz (Stuttgart and Augsburg) are of a much higher caliber.
