Mainz 05 vs RB Leipzig
Date: Wednesday, 5th April 2017
Kick off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Opel Arena (Mainz).
RB Leipzigh managed to bounce back after a disappointing series of results.
The Bulls demolished the rock-bottomed Darmstadt side on Saturday afternoon at their Red Bull Arena.
The team led by Ralph Hassenhuttl will have a nice chance to back up the positive result as they will travel to OPEL ARENA to take on yet another relegation-threatened side on Wednesday evening.
Martin Schmidt can’t be happy at all with his team’s current form.
Mainz 05 have lost three games on the bounce to the likes of Darmstadt, Schalke and Ingolstadt.
It is hard to believe they will be able to bounce back against the second-placed team in the competition. Either way, Schmidt needs a serious turnaround in for if he wants to keep Mainz safe in the remaining Bundesliga fixtures.
The Bulls picked up a very important victory over Darmstadt even though the Austrian manager was without his top scorer Timo Werner.
Werner will again be absent which is why we can expect Marcel Sabitzer to start from the first whistle. The main threat for Mainz’s goal will come from Emil Forsberg and Naby Keita who were both on target in the mentioned win over Darmstadt.
Mainz 05 vs RB Leipzig: Head to head
RB Leipzig won the only head to head match between the two sides.
The Bulls did not have too many troubles as they easily notched three goals in the first half to seal the deal back in November last year.
Timo Werner netted a brace, while Emil Forsberg added one himself for Hassenhuttl’s side.
Mainz 05 vs RB Leipzig: Prediction
Even though the visitors will be without their best player, we simply have to back them to win the match at 23/20 odds.
Emil Forsberg, who has been one of the best players throughout the season and he is priced at 12/5 to find the net.
