RB Leipzig vs Mainz Prediction
The hosts succumbed to what was only their second defeat of the season last week after the in-form Freiburg took them down with a 2-1 scorecard on the road. RB Leipzig are now sitting sixth on the ladder, with a four-point deficit separating them from the table toppers.
Nevertheless, the home side are unbeaten in their last two games here in all competitions, the most recent of which saw them come out on top against Russian outfit Zenit.
Mainz 05, on the other hand, mustered a comeback against FC Koln in their last clash in the Bundesliga and ultimately posted a 3-1 scoreline in their favor. Be that as it may, it needs saying that the visitors have been fairly erratic in their fixtures so far.
Out of their last nine games, the away side have been at the losing end on six occasions. To make matters worse for the traveling faithful, Mainz have failed to come away with the win in four of their last five outings. It is also worth noting that their only taste of success came against rock bottom side Paderborn.
Considering that the guests have also lost by a two-goal margin or more in two of their previous three h2h games here, count on RB Leipzig to make light work of this foe.
Furthermore, the hosts have been caught napping at the back in all of their games on home soil, and are yet to keep a clean sheet here. Meanwhile, Mainz have been consistent in finding the back of the net at least once in all of their previous visits to Red Bull Arena.
As such, count on both teams to chip in and to post over 2.5 goals on the charts.
