"We contained their three-pointer shooting quite well," Dongguan coach Lin Yaosen reflected.
The "Eisernen" made a perfect start on home soil as Christopher Lenz tested Mainz goalkeeper Robin Zentner in the early stages, before Max Kruse nodded home his debut goal after Sheraldo Becker's pinpoint cross to the far post in the 13th minute.
With the result, Union Berlin move up to third place in the standings, while Mainz stay 17th after suffering their third straight defeat of the new season.

GENEVA, Oct. 2 (Xinhua) -- Following is the draw for the group stage of the Europa League:
When facing Turkey in a friendly in Cologne, the national coach Joachim Loew not only has to give several of his vital players a break but also to deal with various cancellations.

The goalless draw follows another 0-0 away to newly promoted Huesca in midweek and even though Luis Suarez was in the starting 11 for the second time in four days, he looked to be lacking match-fitness as Atletico produced just two shots on target in the entire 90 minutes.
Paranaense reduced the deficit courtesy of a Renato Kayzer header but Everton Ribeiro put the result beyond doubt when he lashed home from 20 yards after combining with Giorgian de Arrascaeta.
The game will be held at Pakhtakor Central Stadium as a part of preparations for the remaining games of 2022 FIFA World Cup qualification.
