RB LEIPZIG VS MAINZ 05 PREDICTION: TEAM COMPARISON
- With the entry to the UEFA Champions League semi-finals with the final third place in the Bundesliga, the last season is considered very successful for RB Leipzig. Coach Julian Nagelsmann’s army also had a successful start when they won an overwhelming 3-0 victory over the lower division, FC Nurnberg, in the German National Cup.
- Their efforts in the second leg helped Mainz 05 gain 37 points after 34 rounds, so they successfully relegated to 13th place in the end. The preparation phase for the new season of coach Achim Beierlorzer and his students was not so successful when they only won 1 and lost to 3. But the joy also came to them after winning 5-1 against Havelse in the first round of the National Cup.
Anyone who has watched the Bundesliga for many years can also see the remarkable rise of RB Leipzig, they are always in the top 4 teams and compete fiercely for a place in the European arena. Therefore, the RB Leipzig vs Mainz prediction believes that a team that often struggles to relegate like Mainz 05 will be very difficult to create a surprise.
RB LEIPZIG VS MAINZ 05 PREDICTION TIPS:
- RB Leipzig is extremely confident when playing at the Red Bull Arena home field, which is reflected in the handicap up to 1.1 / 2 goals. Not to mention, they are only correct once, having to fail in the last 17 times to welcome guests. So, with the uncertainty of winning only 2, drawing 2 and losing 2 out of 6 as a guest, Mainz 05 is probably not a reliable choice at the moment.
- Prediction: RB Leipzig -1.1/2
- RB Leipzig also showed the superiority of the score when the two teams faced off when their victories were often very destructive, as evidenced by the scores of 8-0 and 5-0 of the cows in 2 matches last year. With the level gap still so large, the same thing will likely repeat itself, which is also the reason why Over is being highly appreciated at the moment.
- Select: Over 3.1/2
