Bundesliga-18th matchday: Derby… salvation for Mainz and Union

by

Your death is my life, one could say about today’s (07/02, 19:30) postponed match between Mainz and Union Berlin, with which the 18th matchday of the Bundesliga ends.

A game which would normally have been played on January 19 but had been postponed due to the bad weather in Germany and the overall risks to the safety of the fans in the stadium.

The hosts are currently in penultimate place in the table, with 11 points and will be desperate for a win to drop within a point of 16th and the play-offs. They come from two consecutive defeats and haven’t won in nine games!

On the other hand, the “iron” know that by winning the “three points”, they will go to +5 from Cologne and take a big… breath. While they have two wins in their last five games in the German league.
