“Soccer" Mainz 05

FSV Mainz was established in 1905 and they spent their early existence playing in the South German Football League. After the end of World War II, they joined Oberliga Sudwest but were nothing more than a middle-table club there. When the Bundesliga was formed in 1963, they played in the second division. They bounced on and off the top tier until most recently when they have made 10 straight Bundesliga appearances dating back to the 2009/10 season.

Mainz finished 5th in Bundesliga during the 2010/11 season, their best finish in the top tier division, but have not placed higher than 6th since then. They were 12th in the final Bundesliga 1 table last season. FSV Mainz 05 have won the South West Cup three times and were DFB-Pokal semifinalists in 2009.

This club ranks 18th in the league in goal difference at -10. Mainz has scored just a total of two goals this season and that puts them in 17th place in the ladder. They have conceded a total of 12 goals on the year, 18th in the Bundesliga. As far as assists are concerned, Mainz 05 has only two so far this season.

Jean-Paul Boetius and Robin Quaison have scored the two goals for Mainz 05 this season. Ronael Pierre-Gabriel and Daniel Brosinkski have delivered the two assists for this club this season.

Hertha BSC was founded in 1892 and they were one of the founding members of the German Football Association in 1900. When the Bundesliga was founded in 1963, they were the reigning German champions and were an inaugural member of the new league. Hertha Berlin finished the 2018-19 Bundesliga season 11th in the final table, finishing with a record of 11 wins, 10 draws and 13 losses.

This club was crowned as the German championship in 1930 and 1931 and they also finished as runners-up in five different seasons. In Bundesliga competition, the Old Lady has won thrice and are the last team other than Bayern Munich to win the Bundesliga title. They were also group winners of the UEFA Intertoto Cup five times and semifinalists in the UEFA Cup in 1978-79.

Hertha Berlin has a -6 Goal Difference which puts them at 17th in the Bundesliga. They have scored only two goals this season, tied for 17th overall. On the defensive end of the field, Hertha Berlin has conceded 8 goals which put them at 15th overall in the entire league. Their two assists are tied for 14th in the entire Bundesliga.

“Soccer" Who Wins?

Mainz 05 ranks 18th in the current Bundesliga table. The club has a current record of 0-0-4 and has scored only two goals in four matches, having gone scoreless in two. Their losses have come against Kaiserslautern, SC Freiburg, Borussia Monchengladbach, and Bayern Munich. Against the champions, they lost 1-6.

Hertha Berlin is one rank higher in the current Bundesliga standings at 1-1-2 in their first four games of the season. Hertha Berlin opened with a 5-1 win over VfB Eichstatt then drew with Bayern Munich 2-2. However, they have lost their last two matches to VfL Wolfsburg and Schalke 04 by an aggregate score of 0-6.

These teams have played in a total of 22 matches and Hertha Berlin has 8 wins as compared to Mainz’s six victories. Hertha Berlin won their last outing last March 2, 2019, with the score of 2-1. Mainz enters this match as the soccer betting favorites despite not having a win this season. Both these teams aren’t in good form as of late and when you look at their stats, they are just almost even. I think this one is too close to call. I will have to say that these teams will likely play to a draw. Prediction: Draw
