FSV Mainz 05 vs Union Berlin Predictions
- Union Berlin have won only one of their last five league games
- Union Berlin have kept only clean sheet in nine away league matches this season
- Mainz have netted in league meetings with Bayern, Dortmund and Leipzig this calendar year
Mainz may make life tough for Union
Mainz took until the tenth time of asking to record their first Bundesliga home win of the season, but they are worth backing to make life tough for Union Berlin.
Mainz toppled Leipzig 3-2 in their last home outing and although they have since been beaten at Stuttgart, there has been enough positives in recent matches to suggest they are on the improve.
Mainz kicked off the calendar year with a 5-2 defeat at champions Bayer, but they were two goals to the good at the break and they have also pinched a point on their trip to Borussia Dortmund.
The 3-2 win over Leipzig was another in a series of promising performances and they are capable of frustrating a Union Berlin, who have only one win in their last five and suffered a shock road defeat at Augsburg last time out.
Union sit eighth in the Bundesliga but they have kept only one clean sheet in nine away league matches this season.
Union are the Bundesliga’s draw specialists having shared the spoils in eight of their 19 league games this season, so we predict a 1-1 draw – five of Union’s matches have ended that way.
