Mainz lost 1-0 to Union Berlin in the first round of the 2023-24 German Bundesliga at the Stadion Alte Fursterrei in Berlin, Germany, on Tuesday (Sept. 20).

Mainz lined up in a 3-4-3 formation with Lee Jae-sung starting on the left wing, partnering with striker Ludovic Ayorque and right winger Karim Onisibo. Lee was unable to create any offense. Lee was subbed off in the 30th minute of the second half.

Mainz conceded two goals early in the first half. They gave up two goals to Kevin Behrens in the first minute and ninth minute. Lee Jae-sung received a yellow card in the third minute of the first half. Mainz made a tactical change early in the second half, utilizing substitutions. It paid off in the 19th minute when Anthony Cassi scored the winning goal.

Just as Mainz was building a 1-2 lead, Union Berlin forward Berens scored a third goal. The score was back to 1-3 for Mainz. In second-half stoppage time, Milos Pantovic conceded a fourth goal.
