Mainz vs RB Leipzig Match preview

Mainz has recorded only one win in their recent five fixtures. The host is still struggling as they have dropped points in the last two matches in the schedule.

Die Nullfunfer was on the road in their previous encounter with FC Koln. The teams shared the spoils in the game with a 2-2 score on the board.

RB Leipzig is unbeaten in the last seven Bundesliga matches, following a 1-1 draw with Freiburg in their last encounter in the campaign.

Having lost only one of their last ten clashes across all major competitions, Julian Nagelsmann and his men will be confident to visit Opel Arena.

Mainz vs RB Leipzig Prediction

Mainz has descended to the relegation prone area in the table. From the bottom of the table, it will be hard for the host to keep the visitors at bay.

Having won only 4 and lost 7 of their 13 home matches, we cannot recommend their home ground advantage as a sound point for the clash against Die Roten Bullen.

In sharp contrast, Leipzig has lost only 2 of their 13 away fixtures in the campaign so far. With such a decent away record, the traveling side will not be at any disadvantage.

To make things worse, the host has only one win from their seven overall h2h meetings with Die Roten Bullen since 2016. The most recent meeting saw Mainz losing with an 8-0 scoreline away from home.

RB Leipzig has 24 points more than the host in the league table. Apart from that, Julian Nagelsmann and his men had a better run last season than the home team.

So, from an overall perspective, Leipzig will be the clear-cut winner for the match. With the away win accounted at 1.44 odds, the odds will be against the host in the clash.

The tip for away win will be the best bet for the punters in the encounter. Looking at their recent h2h games, there is a good chance for a high-scoring affair. Hence, over 2.5 goals at 1.50 will also be a suitable option for the punters.

Mainz vs RB Leipzig Betting tips
