A potentially vital Bundesliga contest takes place at MEWA ARENA on Friday as Mainz hosts Union Berlin. 

Mainz vs Union Berlin Betting Tips - Under 2.5 Goals

Mainz have endured a miserable run of form and come into Wednesday's rescheduled Bundesliga clash currently winless in nine matches. With only 11 points collected from 19 games played this season, Friday´s hosts now find themselves six points short of safety.

Short on goals, the 05ers slipped to a third defeat in four matches with a 1:0 home defeat against Werder Bremen on Saturday. Mainz have now scored just three goals in their last nine league outings. 

At the MEWA ARENA, Jan Siewert´s side have struggled badly with only four points collected from their last eight league outings. Mainz have lost three of their last four home matches - all by the same 1:0 scoreline.

Union Berlin enter this contest on the back of a 2:0 defeat at RB Leipzig on Sunday. The visitors have been in better form with two wins and one draw achieved in their last five league outings. As a result, Union now sit six points above the home side. However, Die Eisernen have also been short on goals with just three netted in their last six league games.

Considering both teams recent struggles in front of goal, a tight, low-scoring contest seems likely on Wednesday. I expect under 2.5 goals scored while a share of the spoils could be on the cards with both teams showing little sign of winning form in respective home and away matches.

I'm taking the under 2.5 goal line as my top pick while I also anticipate this relegation six-pointer could finish deadlocked.
