Date: Saturday, 23 January 2021

Having won only one of their 17 appearances so far this season in Bundesliga, Mainz has been a punching bag for the other teams in the mix. They are playing on the back of a nine-game winless streak in the campaign, following a 0-2 loss at home against Wolfsburg in the last league clash.
RB Leipzig is sitting at the third position on the table as it stands this season. With a game in hand, the away team has a lead of 25 points over the home team in the league. They will visit on the back of a 2-2 draw on the road with Wolfsburg last time out in their schedule.

Mainz vs RB Leipzig Prediction
The match is sizing to be a high-scoring affair at Opel Arena. The host has been a punching bag for the other teams and opening such a destroyed defense to a team in the top three will just make things worse for the home team in the campaign.
As Mainz overlooks yet another loss in their form this season, RB Leipzig will aim to make a comeback in the league after their recent two winless fixtures in the schedule. It has to be noted that their recent loss came against a stronger team closer to them on the table.
The home win in full-time will probably be the best bet for the punters. From the goals area, the tip for over 2.5 goals will satisfy the requirements in the encounter. The punters can also go for a combined tip as an alternate bet for more returns from the clash.
