Hertha Berlin and Mainz 05 are most closely matched in terms of prices for this game. However, it is difficult to expect either team to come up triumphant. Mainz 05 have just one win in five games and have been devoid of confidence in recent matches, while Hertha Berlin have to thank their home form for the lofty position in the league table. Even though Mainz 05 have claimed three consecutive wins over Hertha Berlin, Dardai’s men carry enough confidence to prevent the run from extending further. Our preview would opt for a draw.

Mainz 05 win odds: 2.60
Hertha Berlin win odds: 2.80
Correct Score odds
Hertha Berlin have been a delight going forward in recent weeks and the team has scored three times more than Mainz 05 (four goals) in the first six matches of the season. They have been riding on the form of Dilrosun and Duda. Mainz 05 have failed to score in three but home advantage coupled with Hertha Berlin’s less than stellar defensive record will aid at least a goal from the hosts. Our correct score prediction would opt for a 1-1 draw.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
The only game between Hertha Berlin and Mainz 05 in the last six meetings to produce over 2.5 goals took place in November 2016. This fixture has often been defensive and matches involving Mainz 05 point out to more of the same. Our total goals prediction would back under 2.5 goals.
[bet_tip_now stars_1_2_3=”3″ block_title=”Goals odds and prediction:”]Total goals under 2.5 at 1.75[/bet_tip_now]
First Goalscorer odds
Ondrej Duda has been in fine form this season after five goals in just six league appearances. The 23-year-old is already experiencing his best scoring campaign after breaking his previous best of two goals quite comfortably. Our first goalscorer prediction would back Duda.
