The struggle for survival in the German First Bundesliga is going to be very interesting.
Due to postponed matches of the teams involved in it, Mainz has 1 and Hertha with 3 games less than the other competitors.
Mainz is in a good series of results
After the last 7 matches played, Mainz is the second team with the best form in the league. No loss and 5 wins in this period.
In the last rounds, 2 direct rivals in the fight for survival were defeated - Cologne and Werder. And finally, Bayern Munich.
I do not want to underestimate these good results. But against Cologne they were outplayed according to xG data . Ie were undeserved.
And against Bayern, the reason was definitely the lack of motivation of the Bavarians.
Who need only 2 more points to be Bundesliga champions again.
Hertha Berlin is also in shape
In their last 3 games, Hertha have won 5 points.
The interesting thing about them is that on the one hand they had fewer meetings, as I have already noted.
But on the other hand, most of the matches they will have to play are against direct rivals.
And at the same time they will enter a very busy cycle of 5 consecutive matches in 3 days.
Forecast for Mainz - Hertha
Dividing by one point will certainly be a good decision for both Mainz and Hertha Berlin.
This will preserve the chances of survival of both teams.
I play for a draw then.
