Mainz vs Union Berlin Match Preview and Prediction

Mainz vs Union Berlin: In a true relegation six-point match on Friday night, Mainz hosts Union Berlin, with just three points separating the two teams close to the red zone.

Eight games ago, Mainz had not scored three goals or more in any of them. In the previous two rounds, Union Berlin maintained two straight clean sheets.

On Friday night, Mainz will take on Union Berlin, their immediate relegation rivals, at home in an attempt to record their second victory of the year. Located on the edge of the danger zone, the two teams are seated directly next to one another in the league standings.

So far this season, no team has claimed fewer victories than Mainz. Nevertheless, eight draws keep Jan Siewert’s team from falling further than third. Three of the last four Bundesliga games saw Mainz draw, and new coach Siewert is happy with the team’s evident defensive improvements.

In none of Mainz’s previous eight games, three or more goals were scored. We have all the ingredients for a low-scoring match in Matchday 18’s first encounter, as Union Berlin hasn’t exactly been scoring goals for pleasure this season.

Union Berlin has recently tightened defensive measures as well. They won four points by maintaining consecutive clean sheets against 1. FC Koln and Freiburg.
