Mainz vs Darmstadt prediction
Loanee van den Berg has been impressing with Mainz – Photo by Icon Sport

Player to watch – Sepp van den Berg

Mainz have really tightened up defensively in recent weeks and young Dutch defender Sepp van den Berg has been playing a big part in their improvement performances at the back. The 22-year-old, who is on loan with Mainz from Liverpool, will be determined to impress again on Saturday.

Van den Berg powerful in the air

Sepp van den Berg was a colossus at the back for Mainz in last weekend’s surprise draw at Leipzig when the centre-half won a game-high six aerial duels and completed seven clearances overall to thwart Die Roten Bullen. Van den Berg should have an integral role for Mainz again this weekend.
