Union Berlin vs. Mainz 05 live streaming free
The 3rd round of the Bundesliga starts on October 2 at the arena “An der Altan Forsteray”, where “Union” Berlin will meet with “Mainz”, and we prepared a forecast for this confrontation. Will the guests be able to score their first points of the season? – read below.
Last season, the “iron” were not particularly noted for a stable game, very often lost points in away matches, but still managed to compensate for this lack with home matches, which eventually led to the 11th line in the standings.
In the offseason, the team played a number of good friendly games, thanks to which the club had a successful start in the German Cup. At the 1/32 final stage, the Berlin team beat Karlsruhe at least (1: 0), the winning goal was scored in 118 minutes of extra time.
Then the fun began, as the time of the Bundesliga came, and with it the problems. Union had two difficult meetings, in the first round the team lost at home to Augsburg (1: 3), but in the last game against Borussia Mönchengladbach the players gathered their strength and painted a world draw (1: 1).
It is too early to talk about the form and tasks of Urs Fischer’s team, although one gets the impression that it will be more difficult to achieve a better result than last year.
Compared to the rival, the “Carnivalists” had even worse last season, as they scored four points less than “Union” Berlin, respectively, took the 13th line, but most importantly, they stayed in the top division, otherwise during the main tournament they did not once faced difficulties.
The team from the city of the same name did not prepare for the domestic championship in the best way, since they won only one out of four matches, but in the German Cup we saw a completely different game. Mainz defeated Havelse 5-1 and showed serious intentions.
It was not possible to start so well in the Bundesliga, because the club did not manage to do anything with RB Leipzig (1: 3), and then lost points in an effective match with Stuttgart (1: 4). After that, the management decided to dismiss the head coach, but only time will tell how much it worked.
In the third round, the team will be brought to the field by Jan-Moritz Lichte, who had a great chance to prove himself, so it will be interesting to watch the players under the guidance of a new mentor.
Mainz have lost only once in their last five personal matches.
In the new season, the “carnivalists” have not yet won.
In ten previous home games, “Union” Berlin lost only three times.

11/09/19 Mainz Union Berlin 2: 3
To be honest, at the start of the Bundesliga, the game “Union” Berlin is not very different from the opponent, just lucky to snatch a draw, so it is difficult to call the hosts favorites.
The management of “Mainz” decided to immediately change all the cardinal ones, and not wait for their club to play as it should, therefore, they dismissed the head coach. Of course, no one knows how the restructuring will affect the result in the next matches, but there is no doubt that the guests will enter the field motivated, especially after two defeats in a row.
In short, we expect to see a real hack in which, in our opinion, the “carnivalists” will score points.
