On Felix Magath’s arrival, Hertha started to show decent football. Thus, in the previous 3 rounds, the team earned 7 points (2 wins and 1 draw). Naturally, these results allowed the Berlin side to improve their position in the standings. They are now in 15th place, with 33 points under their belt. The gap from the bottom three is 4 points. The Old Lady are certainly not threatened by a straightforward exit. They managed to move away from 17th place by 6 points.
In the last home game the Moscow side were stronger than Stuttgart 2-0. The team’s overall statistics at the Olympic Stadium are far from glowing, but they are not at all disappointing: 6 wins, 3 worldwide points and 7 defeats. The goal difference is 23 and 31 respectively.
A week ago, Mainz completely rehabilitated themselves for a series of 5 matches without a win (3 “loos” and 2 draws). On home soil, the Carnival side were stronger than Bayern 3-1. One of the goals was scored by young striker Burkardt. He’s only 21 years old. At that age, he’s already scored 11 goals in the Bundesliga.
Bo Svensson’s charges are placed 9th in the standings. After 32 games, they have 42 points on their books. Curiously, only 8 of them were earned away. In general, throughout the season, the Reds have been poorly represented on the road, as their statistics will serve to prove. In 16 games, only 8 points were earned, with the following results: 2 wins, 2 draws and 12 losses. 15 goals scored and 33 conceded. In comparison, 31 goals scored and 39 conceded at home.
Statistics of personal meetings
In the first half of the season, Mainz were 4-0 stronger than Hertha at home.
Last season, Hertha and Mainz failed to determine the strongest team in a head-to-head encounter, neither in the first leg, nor in the second leg.
Seven of the last eight matches in the league against Hertha ended in a head-to-head total of more than 2.5.
Forecast and bet on the match Hertha – Mainz 05. Outcome with cf. 1,85
Hertha is still battling for survival, and this coming weekend I think the team will be closer to winning. It’s not just about motivation, but also the fact that the “old lady” historically performs well at home, and even in the current season when things are going very badly for the team. But Mainz, on the other hand, is not only weak on the road, but also terribly weak (in 16 games they only earned 8 points).
My prediction. Betting on a clean win for Hertha is dangerous. But a bet on Victory 1 over 0 is considered optimal.
