FC Union Berlin will be taking on Mainz 05 today, at The Stadion An der Alten Forsterei, Berlin on Matchday 3 in the Bundesliga. This match will kick-off on October 3rd at 12:00 AM (IST). This will be a crazy match and here are our predictions
UNN vs MAZ
Neither side has been able to win a single match so far. UNN will hope for a home advantage tonight allowing them to finally register 3 points this campaign. They are currently placed 14th on the table with a single point score from two games. They managed to tie their last game against Borussia Monchengladbach. With all of this, they need a win tonight.
Mainz is yet to register a point this season. They had quite a poor start this season, losing both their games. Their last game against VfB Stuttgart resulted in them losing 4-1. Mainz will need to work on bettering their defence. With both teams desperate for a win, this can prove to be quite an interesting match.
These teams have met on the field 8 times before. UNN won two times, Mainz four times and twice they ended up with a draw.
With UNN, Lenz and Awoniyi are players to keep an eye on. They have great potential tonight.
MAZ has Oztunali and Quaison. They are good players to watch from this team.
UNN vs MAZ Dream 11
Goalkeeper – Luthe
Defenders – Trimmel, Lenz, Schlotterbeck, Hack, St.Juste
Midfielders – Andrich, Barreiro (VC), Quaison
Forwards – Awoniyi, Bulter (C)
UNN’s playing 11 will include Luthe, Schlotterbeck, Trimmel, Andrich, Lenz, Becker, Awoniyi, and Bulter without a doubt.
MAZ’s playing 11 will definitely feature Zentner, Hack, St. Juste, Latza, Barreiro, Oztunali, Quaison.
UNN vs MAZ prediction
We predict that this match will go to UNN. They have only lost one of their last five games. They seem to be extremely eager to put 3 points onto the board. Though historically when these teams clash the winner has been MAZ, we firmly believe that this time around UNN will be winning. With both of them trying to bounce back from a weak campaign start, you can expect them to go all out tonight.
