Mainz vs RB Leipzig Match Preview and Predictions

Mainz 05 vs RB Leipzig
Germany – Bundesliga
Date: Sunday, 29 April 2018
Kick-Off at 14:30 UK
Venue: OPEL ARENA (Mainz).

RB Leipzig ruined all the good work they have done throughout the season in the last couple of weeks. They took only one point in last three league outings to fall down to sixth in the BUndesliga standings and the Champions League football remains only a dream for Ralph Hasenhuttl and his men at this stage.

The Bulls are four points shy of the top-four finish with just three games left to play, and Sunday’s visit to OPEL ARENA is their last train to catch. Luckily for the German manager, his men should not have too big of a task bouncing back from a horrific loss to Hoffenheim given the gulf in quality between them and Mainz 05.

The hosts have woes of their won, and these are concerned to the survival battle. They are level on points with Freiburg and Wolfsburg right on the spot which leads to the relegation playoffs at the end of the campaign.

Mainz vs RB Leipzig: Head-to-head

This will only be the fourth head to head encounter between Mainz and RB Leipzig

Interestingly, each of last three brought high scoring contests, ending with at least four goals scored and both teams ion the scoresheet.

The O-Fives managed to shock the Bulls when they met in December at Red Bull Arena when they held it out to a 2-2 draw.

Leipzig won both of last term’s meetings and they scored eight goals in three ties against Mainz.

Mainz vs RB Leipzig: Prediction

Leipzig just did not play defense at all in the last couple of weeks. They conceded 15 goals in last four games in all competitions (almost four per game) and as many as five in a demolishing defeat to Hoffenheim last weekend at Red Bull Arena.

Mainz have been anything but an impressive attacking side throughout the season, but we believe they should score at least once here. Also, each of the previous head to head encounter offered true goal fests and we have to back Over 2.5 goals FT & BTTS at 2.05 as the main betting option.

We will alternatively back the visitors to net two or more gaols past the relegation strugglers given they simply need to win this to stay in the contest for the Champions league football next year.

Mainz vs RB Leipzig: Bet Tips

Over 2.5 goals FT & BTTS @ 2.05

RB Leipzig Over 1.5 Team Goals @ 1.90
