Working on competitive mentality
The Zerofivers began intensive training ahead of the game in Düsseldorf – Onisiwo & Burkardt are back in team training.
On Tuesday, the Zerofivers’ second and final public training session signalled the start of a new week of competitive football. On Saturday afternoon, two weeks after the away victory over SC Paderborn, Mainz 05 are on the road again as they look to make it back-to-back wins either side of the international break. Picking up the three points is vital if Mainz are to keep up with the midtable pack. The session at Bruchweg lasted around 80 minutes, and Karim Onisiwo and Jonathan Burkardt trained for the first time since returning from international duty.
