Where does the Big City Club go? The goals for the coming years are extremely ambitious. In the coming season, the Berliners want to qualify for the European Cup. However, Jürgen Klinsmann’s team should not take the second step before the first. First of all, the class must be held in the Bundesliga.
Hertha vs Mainz Betting Predictions and Odds
In the next few weeks you will see where the journey is going. In the next five games, the Herthaner will meet five clubs that are currently behind Berlin in the table. Jürgen Klinsmann’s team has to prevail against the direct competitors, otherwise it could be tight until the last match day, because then the cracker games are still pending.
On Saturday, Mainz will come to the Olympic Stadium. If the 13th expects the 15th, one can speak of a basement duel. Hertha is still five points ahead of the 05ers and has a much better starting position. However, both teams will do everything they can to make their appearance a little nicer in the table on Saturday.
Mainz has at least good memories of the Berliners, because the victory in the first leg meant the first points for the 05ers this season. However, it is rather questionable whether you can lay a blueprint on it. In general, the bookmakers in the Hertha vs Mainz game, according to odds, give a prediction of a home win for the capital city club.
In the current FSV constitution, it is not surprising that Achim Beierlorzer’s team will go into this encounter as an outsider. Hertha is however the Rheinhessen. Fear opponents might be too big a word, but the balance of the last few years between these two clubs between Hertha and Mainz suggests a tip in favor of the guests.
In any case, the Mainz team has the chance to gain air in the relegation battle with a win. The Berliners could even make a big leap into the middle of the table and break away from the endangered zone. The kick-off for the 21st matchday in the Bundesliga between Hertha BSC and Mainz 05 in the Olympic Stadium will take place on February 8th, 2020.
Hertha – Statistics & current form
Is Jürgen Klinsmann the savior at Hertha? The fact is that the Berliners have scored a total of twelve points from the nine Bundesliga games under the 1990 world champion, one more than under Covic in the previous period. All in all, the Berliners seem to be going up slightly.
However, if Hertha is still so harmless at home, then it could be tight with the topic of relegation until the end of the season. Hertha haven’t scored at home in three games. In general, there were only two goals under Jürgen Klinsmann in five home games, both of which were scored by Vladimir Darida.
Accordingly, it does not look as if it makes sense in the duel between Hertha and Mainz to check the odds for over goals. So far, Jürgen Klinsmann has ordered his team in relegation battle to stand safely behind and at least the former national coach has succeeded in an impressive way.
Last Tuesday, the Berliners had to compete in the DFB Cup at FC Schalke. Moving into the quarter-finals would have been a nice side effect. Despite a 2-0 lead through the goals of Pascal Köpke and Krzysztof Piatek, the Berliners had to admit defeat by 2: 3 in extra time and also lost Jordan Torunarigha after being sent off after being racially denigrated by some Schalke fans.
The offensive game has encouraged. Perhaps the Berliners are a bit more hungry against Mainz on Saturday. However, Jürgen Klinsmann continues to take small steps and currently sees the development of a homogeneous team as the primary goal. But in the next matches Hertha has everything in its own hands.
In terms of personnel, it could hardly look any better in the capital at the moment. All players registered before the home game against the 05er fit. Only new signing Matheus Cunha will be missing because he plays with Brazil in the Olympic qualification. Rotation-related changes are not excluded. Arne Maier or Vladimir Darida are candidates for the starting XI.
Probable lineup of Hertha:
↳ Jarstein – Stark, Boyata, Torunarigha – Wolf, Skjelbred, Ascacibar, Plattenhardt – Grujic – Köpke, Piatek
↳ Coach: Klinsmann

Mainz – Statistics & current form
Are the Mainz players disadvantaged by the game plan? At the beginning of the season, the 05ers suffered three defeats in the first three Bundesliga games. The same happened to Mainz in the second half of the year. In 2020, Mainz is the only Bundesliga team that has not yet scored a single point. The opponents from Freiburg, Gladbach and Bavaria are all in the upper half of the table.
However, the problem of Mainz seems to be less in the start of the season or after the winter break, because the Rheinhessen generally play their worst season in their own Bundesliga history. 14 defeats from 20 games and 47 goals are an absolute minus record. Mainz is the weakest defensive in the Bundesliga.
These are not good statistics to cheerfully take on the relegation battle. Overall, Achim Beierlorzer’s team has now suffered four defeats in a row in the league. Accordingly, there is not little evidence that in the match between Hertha and Mainz a prediction of the away win is the right choice.
Last weekend, however, the Mainz team did not perform badly against Bayern at home, even if everything went against the Rheinhessen. The Munich team met three times early and Mainz didn’t take the chances. Jeremiah St. Juste’s 1: 3 result was only for cosmetic results.
Nevertheless, the people of Mainz are quite optimistic about the capital. Achim Beierlorzer has his recipe ready to survive in the Olympic Stadium.
“We will have to be patient because Hertha is very stable. We need good counterpressing and a good remaining defense, then it’s a game at eye level. ” – Achim Beierlorzer
Good counterpressing and optimal residual defense should be the key to a successful game. If the Mainz team succeeds, their coach will see them at eye level with Hertha.
All in all, Mainz 05 can draw almost entirely from the full. Stephan Bell and Edimilson Fernandes are the only two players who will fail due to injury. The only question left is which tactical route the 05ers will use. Overall, there is a lot of evidence that Achim Beierlorzer will rely on a chain of three.
Probable lineup of Mainz:
↳ Zentner – St. Juste, Bruma, Niakhate – Baku, Aaron – Barreiro, Latza, Boetius – Mateta, Quaison
↳ Coach: Beierlorzer
Last games from Mainz:
⚽️ 02/01/2020 – Mainz vs. Bayern 1: 3 (Bundesliga)
⚽️ 01/25/2020 – Gladbach vs. Mainz 3: 1 (Bundesliga)
⚽️ 01/18/2020 – Mainz vs. Freiburg 1: 2 (Bundesliga)
⚽️ 01/11/2020 – Dortmund vs. Mainz 0-2 (friendly match)
⚽️ 07.01.2020 – Mainz vs. Emmen 2: 3 (friendly match)
