Our Expert Predictions & Analysis on Mainz vs RB Leipzig


Mainz finished the last German championship in the lower part of the standings and at one time was even a contender for a demotion, but still managed to maintain a residence in the elite of German football. This season, the team definitely intends to improve not only their game, but also the results.

In the first round match, the home team will be the underdogs of the confrontation, but they will still play at home, and this leaves Mainz with some chances for points. Good implementation of chances at the opponent's goal and reliable play in defense are the main factors that should help Mainz in the first round match.

RB Leipzig

Bulls in the last season tried for a long time to impose the struggle of Bayern at the top of the standings, but still lost to Munich and finished second. An excellent result for RB Leipzig, which this season will be led by Jesse Marsh after Julian Nagelsmann leaves for Bayern.

Of course, the players and the coaching staff of RB Leipzig are planning to fight for the leading positions in the new championship, but this time the competition at the top of the Bundesliga standings will only intensify. And it is completely unclear how Leipzig will play under the leadership of the new head coach.

It is not yet clear what to expect from the hosts in the new season, but in terms of personnel potential and class, the Mainz players are inferior to the players of RB Leipzig. A good choice for forecasting can be a bet on RB Leipzig with a handicap (-1.5) for 2.36.
