Mainz 05 and Hertha BSC came into MatchDay 7 in the top half of the league. Hertha was coming off a 2-0 win over defending champs Bayern Munich and Mainz was trying to gain momentum after getting only one point in their last three matches.
Neither side could get many chances on target. Mainz 05 had more shots (22 to Hertha’s 10), but many of those chances were from distance and never troubled keeper Rune Jarstein. Hertha’s best chance came in the first half when a header went off the pipes. The match ended in a 0-0 draw.
