Match status: 2019/20 Bundesliga - Matchweek 27
Kick-off:
Venue: Opel Arena (Mainz)
Following their slip-up against SC Freiburg on the last match-day, RB Leipzig will be looking to return to winning ways this weekend with a convincing win against this bottom-half opposition. Barring profligacy and complacency, the Red Bulls should roar to victory in this fixture.

Despite their recent woes, the visitors are still in the running for the title with only seven points separating them from table-toppers Bayern Munich. A string of wins in the coming weeks with results elsewhere in their favour, Julian Nagelsmann’s side could be celebrating title success come the end of the campaign.

With the end of the season in sight, the Red Bulls cannot afford anymore lapses as they look to finish as high as possible on the standings. Expect Mainz to be swept under the carpet by this resilient RB Leipzig side come Sunday afternoon.

Mainz vs RB Leipzig Team News

Presented a pretty difficult task of defeating FC Koln last time out, Mainz managed to snatch a point right from the claws of their stubborn opposition. A fiercely-contested affair in Cologne ended with both sides sharing the spoils with a 2-2 score posted on the board.

Mainz will be very delighted to have salvaged a point from their eleventh-placed opposition in a game they headed into as huge underdogs. Their resilience and sturdiness ensured they did not return home empty-handed, with a point in the bag. Props to the 05ers for the positive result.

RB Leipzig, on the other hand, were left disappointed on home turf as they failed to see off a spirited Freiburg side on the last match-day. On the back foot for large parts of the game, the Red Bulls could have easily lost the game with Freiburg dominating proceedings from start to finish.

Indeed, Streich’s men thought they had bagged the three points after finding the back of the net in stoppage time, only to have the goal ruled off for offside. Ultimately, Freiburg had to settle for a draw against their top-four foe. Freiburg fans must have been delighted as they watched their side entertain with some scintillating piece of football.

For all their struggles in recent games, head coach Julian Nagelsmann might be deserving of a pat on the back for the manner in which he has had his side dazzling so far this season. Sitting fourth on the standings, with a top-spot finish in sight, Leipzig are apparently one of the best sides within the cluster.

The home side have been unconvincing lately with a single win of note from their previous five fixtures. Also, they have dropped points in each of their last two Bundesliga fixtures. Having amassed a measly 27 points from 26 games, the 05ers are just ten points clear of rock-bottom.

Meanwhile, RB Leipzig have maintained an unbeaten record in each of their previous seven league games and have tasted defeat just once from their preceding ten clashes across all competitions.

Mainz vs RB Leipzig Predictions

Despite their disappointing display against Freiburg last week, RB Leipzig are still considered favorites for the win here. While giving props to the visitors, it is noteworthy that they have not been entirely convincing over the last couple of games.

However, given that the opposition are involved within relegation obscurity and have had their fair share of struggles this season, the Red Bulls should edge this one out slightly. Backing RB Leipzig to win, with more than two goals between both sides, seem the safest punt.
