Union Berlin vs Mainz Prediction and Betting Preview 27 May 2020

The Match Is Over. Score: 1-1
Union Berlin vs Mainz PredictionBundesliga newcomers have been enjoying life in the German top-flight with a couple of important wins to their name so far this season. With the bookmakers expecting a heated relegation battle for Die Eisernen, they have defied all odds, sitting comfortably in 13th spot on the standings, nine points clear of the drop-zone.
Match status: 2019/20 Bundesliga - Matchweek 28
Kick-off:
Venue: Stadion An der Alten Försterei (Berlin)
They have shown glimpses of brilliance on a couple of occasions whilst producing lackluster displays in others. Head coach Urs Fischer will be looking to get his side delivering positive results on a regular without the fitful “bad days at the office”.
Their heavy 0-4 loss last time out against Hertha Berlin must have given their confidence levels a huge hit, just when they were looking to gain ground on the standings. However, they have been presented with a shot at redemption with a game against relegation-threatened Mainz this weekend.
The visitors have been underwhelming this campaign and are just six-points above the drop. The 05ers really cannot afford any major blips at this crucial time of the season. They will be gunning for the three points against their inexperienced opposition.

As such, expect a thrilling encounter between two victory-hungry sides when these sides square off at the Stadion An der Alten Forsterei on Wednesday evening. Goals are a given in this fixture.

Union Berlin vs Mainz Team News

In with a shout against Hertha Berlin on the last match-day, Union Berlin were dealt a major blow with a huge loss in the bag. Remaining sturdy throughout the first forty-five, the opposition struggled to make in-roads through Union Berlin’s stubborn defense, the half ultimately ending in a draw.

The floodgates were however opened in the second-half, with Hertha Berlin firing four unanswered goals past Gikiewicz in goal. Die Eisernen will be kicking themselves for letting their guard down after the restart, as they were ultimately forced home empty-handed and with a pretty deep injury to recover from.

Head coach Urs Fischer must now return to the drawing board as he ponders on the next move to get his side delivering points once again. They cannot afford dropping more points, not at this stage of the season.

Mainz, on the other hand, were presented with the impossible task of staging an upset against high-flying RB Leipzig, ultimately falling short at the hands of their title-chasing opposition. Pegged back in their half for large portions of the game, the 05ers were comprehensively defeated 5-0 by the Red Bulls.

With a game against Union Berlin on the horizon, the visitors will be looking to return to winning ways with victory over the newly-promoted side. However, they will be required to put their best foot forward to have any chances of salvaging something meaningful from this fixture.

Even though the home side have been impressive this season, even sporting a better winning record than Mainz, their top-flight inexperience is likely to come into play here. Still struggling to get their mitts about the weekly hassles of the Bundesliga, Mainz will be looking to exploit this foe in every single way possible.

It is also worth noting that the Iron Ones have not fared well in previous h2h encounters and are even on a humiliating four-game losing run in the league, conceding no less than two goals over the last five games.

Union Berlin vs Mainz Predictions

Mainz are desperate to steer clear of the relegation zone with the season drawing to a close in a few weeks’ time. Achim Beierlorzer and his boys will be determined to snatch all three points from this opposition on Wednesday evening.

Also, given the home side’s terrible defensive record, the 05ers are considered slight favorites for the win. The goal market seems particularly enticing here. Expect no less than three goals between both sides at the sound of the final whistle.
