Hertha Berlin has eased their relegation worries with two wins in their previous four. However, they come up against one of the in-form sides in the Bundesliga this weekend, with Mainz chasing a fifth straight victory.
Mainz are making a strong push for a European finish in the Bundesliga at present, as they sit seventh in the league standings. They are just four points off the top six, but they could bridge that gap this weekend if they can maintain their excellent recent form in the Bundesliga. Mainz is currently one of the form sides in the German top flight, as they have picked up wins in each of their last four matches.
Only Borussia Dortmund is currently on a longer winning sequence in the division, and that has only aided Mainz in their ambitions for a European push this term. They were extremely professional in their most recent league match, as they registered a closely fought 1-0 win over Hoffenheim. The only goal in the game was scored just after the half-hour mark, with Leandro Barreiro netting the winning goal in the clash.
Hertha Berlin’s status in the Bundesliga is still far from assured, but they have eased their relegation worries in recent weeks after registering two wins in their last four matches. They have also lost three matches over their last five, which means that they remain just a point clear of the bottom spots in the division.
Their most recent outing came on the road against Bayer Leverkusen, but they were soundly beaten by the German side on that occasion by a 4-1 scoreline. They were 3-0 down after 60 minutes, with Hertha’s consolation goal being netted with 23 minutes remaining by Dodi Lukebakio from the penalty spot.
Hertha Berlin vs Mainz Head to Head
Mainz has an exceptional record in this fixture, as they have avoided defeat in each of the previous seven league meetings between the sides. Over that period, they have recorded four wins, which includes a win in this exact fixture last season.
Hertha Berlin vs Mainz Prediction
