FC Union Berlin is hosting FSV Mainz 05 at An der alten Forsterei in round 28 of German Bundesliga. 

Union Berlin is one of the weakest teams in Bundesliga, but at the moment, Union Berlin is safely outside the relegation zone. With 30 points, 32 scored goals, and 47 conceded goals, Union is in 13th place in the standings, 6 points outside the relegation zone. Union Berlina hasn’t won any of their last 5 games, while they lost their last 4 straight games. In their last two games since the season started again, Union Berlin was playing terrible soccer and has conceded 6 goals, while they haven’t scored a single goal. In their most recent match in Bundesliga against Hertha on the road, Union Berlin has had 45% of ball possession, 6 corner kicks, 78% of accurate passes, and 0 shots on goal. Union Berlin has lost this match 4-0 with 4 conceded goals in the second half of this match. Andersson has scored 11 goals for Union Berlin, while Bulter added 7 goals. Gogia and Becker are injured. Union Berlin has had some good results earlier in the season and that is why they are safely outside the relegation zone, but unless they start showing some signs of life, Union might not be safe for long.

Mainz hasn’t been playing well and they have been wildly inconsistent this season, and thanks to that, Mainz is getting closer and closer to the relegation zone. Mainz has the worst defense and they have conceded 60 goals in 27 games. With 27 points, Mainz is in 15th place in the standings, just three points above Fortuna in the relegation zone. Quaison has scored 12 goals for Mainz this season, but he lacks support from his teammates in midfield and in the attacking part. Zentner is the only injured player for Mainz. Mainz hasn’t won any of their last three games, while they conceded 8 goals during that stretch. In their most recent match in Bundesliga against Leipzig, Mainz was the weaker team with only 34% of ball possession, 1 shot on goal, 5 corner kicks, and 79% of the correct passes. Nobody has expected from Mainz to win this game, but nobody expected them to lose 0-5 as well, at home. Mainz is in a terrible form, but the good news is that their competitors for relegation are also in bad forms. Mainz doesn’t have a deep roster with high-quality players that can make a difference as soon as they touch the ball, but I believe they can stay in Bundesliga if they start scoring goals as soon as possible.

This is a matchup between two of the teams that are in terrible form and are not scoring a lot of goals, but both Union Berlin and Mainz need this win to stay outside the relegation zone. I know that neither of these two teams Is scoring a lot of goals, but both defenses are sloppy and unreliable, which leads to the believe that we could see some goals from both Union Berlin and Mainz.
