Mainz – Hamburg: 14th October 2017
After the defeats with Bayern and Hoffenheim, the hosts immediately reacted and managed to get four points in the confrontations with Hertha and Wolfsburg. Thus, they managed to climb up to the 13th position in the standings, but only the top goals kept them from the relegable places. At the age of 25, the Japanese Yoshinori Muto impressed this season, managing to score 3 of his 7 goals. On the other side, after having reached the maximum points in the first two rounds, the guests entered a shadow cone from which they no longer find the exit. Hamburg has only scored one point in the last 5 stages, when it failed to score even one goal! The last direct encounter ended undecided, scoring 0-0. It was the second “white” result recorded in the last 3 straight games.
