Our prediction for this Bundesliga match:
Hertha will be looking to bounce back from a 4-1 defeat to Bayer Leverkusen when they face Mainz in the Bundesliga round 24. The capital club are eyeing their third consecutive win on home soil, but Saturday’s game will be anything but a walk in the park for the hosts. Both Chidera Ejuke and Kelian Nsona are sidelined with injuries, but there are no suspended players in the home team.
Die Nullfunfer, on the other hand, are on a four-game winning run in the German top flight. Since Mainz are eager to keep their Europa League hopes alive, both teams to score betting option should be considered. In the first half of the season the two teams played out a 1-1 draw, which is yet another reason why we are going to bet on BTTS. As for the away team, both Karim Onisiwo and Jonathan Burkardt are sidelined with injuries, while Dominik Kohr is a major doubt.
