Mainz vs RB Leipzig
Germany – Bundesliga
Date: Friday, 3rd May 2019
Kick-off at 19.30 UK/ 20.30 CET
Venue: Opel Arena (Mainz).

Leipzig has been statistically the best team in Germany in the last several match-days. They are on a winning streak of eight official matches, and on the road, they won the last nine fixtures in a row. Their incredible run has seen them qualify for the Champions League with still three rounds to go, and as of now, they have the runner-up spot in sights.

Mainz has already avoided the relegation threat and is out of contention for the playoffs. Going into the next season, the team would definitely love to improve their exploits in front of the goal. So far, they have scored the least number of goals except for the bottom-most four squads.

Mainz vs RB Leipzig Prediction

Leipzig has been the best team in the Bundesliga for quite some time. They won their last eight games in a row, and are unbeaten in their last 16 fixtures. Their last official loss came against Dortmund four months back, and before that against Bayern, in December. On the road, they won the last nine games in succession.

Mainz, meanwhile, lost an embarrassing nine of their last twelve fixtures and has recorded just a single win against Leipzig so far.

Importantly, Leipzig boasts of the best defense so far in the competition and remains the only team to concede fewer than 25 goals, while all the remaining ones have already crossed 30. On the road, they have limited their number to 15.

Expect Leipzig to win the game, with a very high probability of a clean sheet as well.
