Union Berlin welcome Mainz to Stadion An der Alten Försterei in the Bundesliga on Friday. The capital club have a great change to get their first win of the season against a Mainz side stuck with off field problems.

Union Berlin Form


Union Berlin got past Karlsruher in the German Cup, Nico Schlotterbeck scoring in extra time to secure a 1-0 win. They began the new Bundesliga season with a 3-1 home defeat against Augsburg.

Urs Fischer’s side were underdogs at Borussia Monchengladbach on Saturday but emerged with a 1-1 draw. Nico Schlotterbeck was the hero once again, equalising in the 79th minute.

Union Berlin Team News


Midfielder Christian Gentner and striker Anthony Ujah are injured. Options up front include Taiwo Awoniyi, Joel Pohjanpalo, Cedric Teuchert and Max Kruse.

Liverpool goalkeeper Loris Karius has signed on loan and could start.

Mainz Form


Mainz beat fourth division club Havelse 5-1 in the German Cup with French striker Jean-Philippe Mateta scoring a hat-trick. They failed to carry that form into the Bundesliga.

The 05ers deservedly lost 3-1 at Leipzig with Mateta on target once again. Achim Beierlorzer’s side then lost 4-1 at home against Stuttgart despite Robin Quaison’s early opener.

Moussa Niakhaté was sent off in the 77th minute at 2-1 down and they had no answers.

Mainz Team News


Centre-back Moussa Niakhaté is suspended. Striker Dong-Won Ji is injured, Adam Szalai is out of favour and has likely played his last match for Mainz.

Defender Stefan Bell is close to a return alongside midfielders Pierre Kunde Malong and Edimilson Fernandes.

Achim Beierlorzer was sacked after the Stuttgart defeat, assistant Jan-Moritz Lichte taking over as caretaker manager.

Verdict

Mainz’s defence has allowed seven goals in their opening two Bundesliga matches. They should get a reaction under a new manager, but Mainz can’t be trusted to get a result in Berlin.
