Mainz vs RB Leipzig Prediction & Betting tips
So the people responsible at RB Leipzig certainly did not imagine the Bundesliga restart. The draw against Freiburg left important points in the title race. If you look back at the recent presentation of the Sachsen, the miserable exploitation of opportunities by the Nagelsmann-Elf was particularly expandable.
To continue dreaming of a possible title coup and not endangering starting positions for the premier class, further point losses are prohibited – especially in the upcoming match against Mainz. If the supposed routine task is underestimated, the next bad awakening could follow for the Rheinhessen who are at risk of relegation.
In the ghost scenery of Mainz against RB Leipzig, the guests are traded according to odds as favorites with bookmakers. We would support this assessment despite the manageable restart of the Leipzig. Coach Julian Nagelsmann will certainly have said a few words to his team after the recent appearance against SC Freiburg.
The primary goal of the Saxons is still a season finish among the top four Bundesliga teams. It is quite possible that the Bulls will react in spite of the Saturday match between Mainz and RB Leipzig.

The fight for relegation in the 1st Bundesliga continues to intensify. The FSV Mainz 05 remains on the saving bank after the last game day, but is still worried about the 15th place in the table. With the draw at 1. FC Köln there was an important point despite a 0-2 deficit in the meantime. The cushion on the red zone is currently four points.
Considering how strongly the Mainz presented themselves in the second round, the result was well deserved last week. Mainz coach Achim Beierlorzer would like to pick up on these good approaches in the home game against RB Leipzig. Before the match against the big favorites from Saxony, the 52-year-old trainer sprayed a lot of optimism.
And not without reason. Beierlorzer himself worked for years as a youth, interim and head coach for the bulls. The extent to which the “old” RB Leipzig can be compared with the current version of the Leipzig is unclear. Since its arrival at the Rheinhessen, the upward trend at the FSV has been impressive.
In the last six competitive games there was only one defeat for the red and whites. The recent comeback against “Effzeh” shows that the Mainz team has the right mentality in the relegation battle. Nevertheless, the challenge against the table fourth from Leipzig is a real mammoth task.
In contrast to the youngest opponents such as Cologne, Düsseldorf and Paderborn, a concentrated offensive is now coming towards the defensive of the Rheinhessen. Although the defensive game of the red and whites under Beierlorzer had improved, 55 goals against in 26 league games can still not be talked about. VfL Wolfsburg – currently sixth in the Bundesliga – gave the Mainz four goals.
In the crucial season phase, the FSV Mainz 05 will have to do without its own trailers. Accordingly, the home advantage on Sunday afternoon should not be overestimated.
The tide can turn that quickly. After three draws in a row, RB Leipzig finally lost the excellent starting position from the strong first half of the season and is now only one of many Bayern pursuers. So that at least one starting place for the premier class is not endangered, a loss of points for the upcoming match against Mainz is prohibited.
For the Saxon goal factory, there have been only two goals to celebrate in their last three games since their second win against FC Schalke 04. Above all, the latest result was disappointing for Julian Nagelsmann’s ambitious charges. Despite numerous offensive efforts, the home game against SC Freiburg was only a 1-1 draw.
In order to remain competitive with competitors from the upper third of the table, the bulls can no longer afford dropouts. In the next possible loss of points, Bayer Leverkusen – currently on an EL starting spot – will pass Leipzig. A scenario that would hardly be able to cope after the strong first half of the season.
A major shortcoming and decisive for the ongoing mini crisis is certainly the exploitation of the bulls’ chances. There was a clear indication of this in the last home game against Freiburg. Only one action out of 23 shot attempts was used. In view of the tight table constellation, a defiant reaction is now required.
Julian Nagelsmann has the offensive arsenal to sweep FSV Mainz 05 out of the stadium. For this, however, the inhibition of charging must be overcome on the offensive. In the away game against the Rheinhessen, Nagelsmann will largely be able to draw on the full. Only the long-term injured Ethan Ampadu missed the match on Sunday afternoon.
