Mainz 05 faces Union Berlin

Mainz 05 faces Union Berlin in another game from the 11th round of the Bundesliga. In our football tips tonight we will try to take some good look at this fixture.

Mainz 05 are in a serious knockdown right now. They will try to recover after the disastrious 0-8 defeat against RB Leipzig in the previous round. The manager Sandro Schwarz and his players had to swallow a serious humilation, so their mental state right now is certainly not the best one. The question is – can they find some inner strenght to get back on their feet and make a good game against Union?

At this moment Mainz are 15th in the Bundesliga table with 9 points, but only two poinst above the relegation zone. The truth is that they don’t have any time to reflect on what’s happened last week – they need points.

Against Union Mainz will be without Stefan Bell, Ji Dong-Won, Aaron Seydel and Jean Mateta, who are recovering from injuries

Union Berlin in the same time are just one position ahead of their next opponent, being 14th in the standings with 10 points. The newcomers made a climb in the table after a 1-0 win over Hertha BSC in the previous round. The game was going to finish with a draw, but just three minutes before the end Sebastian Polter scored a penalty kcik for the hosts.

Union are having two wins in their last three games, so clearly there’s something positive happening there. The club’s manager Urs Fischer knew that it’s going to be a tough season, but Union will fight until the end for survival.

That’s our football tips tonight for the Bundesliga game between Mainz 05 and Union Berlin on Saturday. These two teams are next to each other in the standings, but Union are looking to be in a better shape.
