Every sensational story in football also has a downside. This refers to the record-breaking Claudio Pizarro two weeks ago in Berlin’s Olympic Stadium, with which the Peruvian rose to the oldest scorer in the Bundesliga of all time. As much as the 1: 1 equalizer was on the side of Bremen in the last second, so annoying was the goal for the old lady from the capital. Thus Berlin let two important counter in the fight for Europe lie. As there was nothing to reap a week later at the 0-1 in Munich except praise for the troupe of Pal Dardei, counting only points on the matchday. Berlin wants to get the threesome at home and make a prediction between Hertha and Mainz or even venture a guess, is very difficult in this game. The home side are favorites and are also eligible in this role. However, as mentioned, the performances did not last, while the guests from Mainz really got into a carnival mood with a 3: 0 at home against Schalke.
Soccer Prediction for Today Hertha vs Mainz
The 05er have pushed through the threesome close to the Hertha and the match on Saturday has become a real pursuer duel for the international starting places. Only the winner can hold the contact up, the loser threatens a season final spurt in the gray midfield. At 30 or 32 points and the weak competition in the basement threatens the rear no more danger in relegation battle. The first leg between these two clubs ended with a goalless draw, which is not the only reason why between Hertha and Mainz the odds for a tip on a few hits are attractive. Whether this assessment occurs, will show on Saturday afternoon, when referee Deniz Aytekin blows for the first time in the pipe. At 15:30 this will be the case.
Actually, currently only the results are not correct. Actually, professional football is a treacherous word. A pure earnings crisis quickly spreads into a general crisis, which is why Pal Dardei and his team definitely want to score again on Saturday. In recent weeks, the opponents in league and cup were very well-known, the performances of the Berlin neat, the results with the exception of the away win in Mönchengladbach insufficient. That’s how easy it is to describe the current situation of Hertha. In the next few weeks will decide whether the capital city club can still intervene in the race for Europe or not. A threesome against Mainz would do us a lot of good. Since virtually only a home win counts, Pal Dardei could put on a more offensive formation with a back four.
This is strongly related to the personality Torunarigha. The defender is injured and an assignment on Saturday questionable. Should Torunarigha get fit, the classic five-string with two attacking back-offs is the most likely. Certainly Berlin has always been in the final games anyway, in attack against the shoe pushes a bit. An option for Dardei is certainly captain Vedad Ibisevic, who last had to let Davie Selke and Salomon Kalou pass first. After his yellow card suspension, however, the Bosnian could once again get a starting chance. Kalou would then have to sit on the bench first, as Selke has the best form of the attackers. The rest of the starting eleven will hardly change compared to the appearance in the Allianz Arena.
Expected formation of Hertha:
Jarstein – Klünter, Stark, Lustenberger, Mittelstaedt – Grujic, Maier, Lazaro, Duda – Kalou, Selke
Last Games by Hertha:
- 23.02.2019 – Bayern vs Hertha 1: 0 (Bundesliga)
- 16.02.2019 – Hertha Vs. Werder Bremen 1: 1 (Bundesliga)
- 09.02.2019 – Gladbach vs. Hertha 0: 3 (Bundesliga)
- 06.02.2019 – Hertha Vs. Bayern 2: 3 (DFB Cup)
- 02.02.2019 – Hertha Vs. Wolfsburg 0: 1 (Bundesliga)
Should Mainz have experienced something like a small intermediate low, this was clearly overcome with the 3-0 win over Schalke 04 last weekend. After three failures in a row, Sandro Schwarz’s team showed that the tension is still there, though the 05ers are a little out of the no-man’s-land of the table. There are two motivations for the Rheinhessen nonetheless. On the one hand, the attack on the European Cup places is possible with a small run, on the other hand, it is already advisable to recommend for the coming season. The young team will be developed under Sandro Schwarz long term. In the short term, the coach will breathe deeply that the flu epidemic has been largely overcome in the last few days, which was pulled by the team.
Most of the regulars will probably be back in the starting eleven against Hertha. Of the substitutes, Karim Onisiwo was most recommended. The Austrians could benefit from the fact that with Jean Paul Boetius a midfielder is missing after his fifth yellow card. Quaison should therefore move to the tenth and make room for Onisiwo. Gerrit Holtmann is one of the few players who have not yet completely overcome the flu, which is why he is not an option for the weekend in this position. Against Hertha Mainz has according to predictions, the bookmaker has no good chances to an away threesome.
Expected formation of Mainz:
Müller – Brosinski, Bell, Niakhate, Aaron – customer, Gbamin, Latza, Quaison – Onisiwo, Mateta
Last matches of Mainz:
- 23.02.2019 – Mainz vs. Schalke 3: 0 (Bundesliga)
- 16.02.2019 – Wolfsburg vs Mainz 3: 0 (Bundesliga)
- 08.02.2019 – Mainz vs Leverkusen 1: 5 (Bundesliga)
- 03.02.2019 – Augsburg vs Mainz 3: 0 (Bundesliga)
- 26.01.2019 – Mainz vs Nuremberg 2: 1 (Bundesliga)
Hertha vs Mainz Direct Comparison & Statistics Highlights
When looking at the direct comparison between Hertha and Mainz, the prognosis that a tip must be made on sub goals is almost unbelievable. Especially in the recent past, the duels between the two clubs were very poor. Just four goals in four games are recorded. The winner was FSV Mainz 05 three times during this time. The last Berlin victory is already three years back. In the first leg of the current season, the teams fought another fiercely contested duel in which the points were shared at the end. In only 90 minutes, Hertha and Mainz were only four shots out, so a goal on sub goals was never in danger and the 0: 0 was only logical. Whether the spectators will see more spectacle on Saturday in the Olympic Stadium? Questionable – and all the more surprising that between Hertha and Mainz, the odds for this tip were still so high.

The hosts are rightly the favorite and have a 50% chance of winning. Value can not be generated there. The odds for choosing “under 2.5 goals”, on the other hand, are much more lucrative and a bit incomprehensible. Clear Mainz won against Schalke with three goals. But the miners are not comparable to a defensive team like that of Pal Dardei and much more likely to assume that in the Olympic Stadium, as in previous years, trifles will be the decisive factor.
