Hertha Berlin vs Mainz
Date: Tuesday, 15 December 2020
Kick-off at 19:30 UK/ 20:30 CET
Die Alte Dame have recently improved their form by a huge margin. They used to be a struggling lot in the starting phase of the season, but have started to slowly and consistently post points on the board. And as a result, they are rising up the table gradually.
This Tuesday, they have a great opportunity to extend their recent impressive run by one more game week. The reason being – at home, they are pitted against one of the worst teams in the whole competition – the 05ers.
These guests of the day are placed 17th in a table of 18, and they have a single win all through this season. They also have conceded the second-most number of goals of all the teams in the contest, and have been a disaster on the road as well this season.
Likely, expect Hertha Berlin to dominate proceedings this Tuesday at the Olympiastadion.

Hertha Berlin vs Mainz: Prediction
Bruno Labbadia’s men recorded a 3-1 win at home the last match-day, against Union Berlin. In the meantime, the 05ers lost 2-1 on the road the past game week, against Bielefeld.
Going on, Lichte’s men were winless in 13 of their preceding 15 overall games, and in the process they had recorded a stretch of ten losses from eleven matches. Do note that they have also conceded two or more goals in ten of their past fourteen fixtures.
On the road they have lost seven of the former nine games, and had conceded two or more goals in six of these eight match-ups.
On the other hand, their opposite number were unbeaten in four of their last five overall fixtures, and the sole loss during this stretch had come against Dortmund. And importantly, at this venue, they had registered nine of the past thirteen overall h2h wins.
Taking these observations into account, expect Hertha Berlin to easily overcome the struggling Mainz this Tuesday at the Olympiastadion.
