Our football match prediction:
Mainz do not seem to be on top of their game ahead of the visit of Hamburger. Die Nullfunfer extended their losing run to three games at the weekend as they were beaten by Borussia M’gladbach on the road. Mainz have been dropping down the standings week by week and they are just seven points clear of bottom three ahead of Matchday 15. Hamburger, on the other hand, gave fans some cheer in previous two league fixtures and the relegation strugglers will be looking to build on back-to-back wins over the likes of Darmstadt and Augsburg when they square off against Mainz at Opel Arena. Serbian winger Filip Kostic scored the winner for die Rothosen in the 1-0 triumph over Augsburg, meaning that the opposition defenders should have him at bay. Mainz are desperate to put an end to their three-game losing run in the national championship and seeing that the visitors will be happy with one point from Saturday’s football match, we predict that the two teams will play out a draw at Opel Arena.
