Result: Mainz 05 beat SV Darmstadt 98 in five-goal thriller

Mainz 05 edge out local rivals SV Darmstadt 98 to win 3-2 at the Merck-Stadion am Böllenfalltor.

Mainz 05 won the first derby with SV Darmstadt 98 in 22 years as Pablo de Blasis's second-half goal settled a rollercoaster clash that finished 3-2 at the Merck-Stadion am Böllenfalltor this evening.

However, Darmstadt could have rescued a draw when they were awarded a penalty deep into second-half injury time, only for Sandro Wagner to blaze his effort high over the top of goal.

The visitors took the lead through Stefan Bell when he headed home Danny Latza's free kick on 15 minutes for his first goal of the season.

Despite dominating much of the possession, it was the away side's first effort in the game, but their second effort on 24 minutes yielded another goal as Yunus Malli curled home from the edge of the box.

Their two-goal advantage lasted less than two minutes, however, as Marcel Heller collected the ball on the edge of the box and turned beyond his man before firing into the top corner to reduce the deficit.

The home side then levelled the game when half-time substitute Marco Sailer stabbed home Konstantin Rausch's left-wing cross.

However, just as Dirk Schuster's team had wrestled their way back into the game, they found themselves behind again when they failed to clear the ball, allowing de Blasis to fire home.

Christian Mathenia then had to be at his best to paw away a rasping shot from Yoshinori Muto, and Wagner's free kick deflected narrowly wide, before Wagner blew his chance from the spot in the 96th minute.

The result sees Mainz climb to fifth place in the Bundesliga, with 12 points from their opening eight games.
