Hertha vs Mainz: On the opening of the Bundesliga’s 23rd round this Friday, Hertha hosts Mainz at home.
Hertha’s current campaign isn’t at all reminiscing of their campaign last season, when the team fought for the European spots and ended up securing a place in the Europa League by finishing 6th on the Bundesliga.
In 2018, things are going completely different for them.
Hertha is only in 11th place. But curiously, they are still closer to the fight for the European spots than the relegation zone.
With 30 points, Hertha is 6 points away from the Champions League’s spots and 4 points away from the Europa League’s spots.
Their moment of form isn’t bad. The team is coming off a great win away from home over Leverkusen and they are unbeaten for 4 rounds, getting draws against Dortmund, Bremen and Hoffenheim.

Mainz isn’t on such a comfortable situation. The team suffered another loss on the previous round against Hoffenheim and they already have 4 consecutive losses on the competition.
Therefore, their situation on the league table is worrying.
The team occupies the 16th place, that would force them to play on the relegation play-offs, with 20 points conquered.
They are already 3 points behind the first team utside the relegation zone.
Away from home, where they will play tonight, they still haven’t won, getting 4 draws and 7 losses and a goal record of 11 goals scored and 24 goals conceded.
Hertha vs Mainz – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Hertha is maybe on their best moment of form in this competition and a victory here could put them on the fight for the continental spots.
On the other hand, Mainz, sunk on a negative streak and playing where they perform worse, away from home.
Adding up those two aspects, I believe the home side will win and I think this bet has a lot of value.
