📏 Form Guide

RB Leipzig DLWWLW

RB Leipzig will be looking for another win after the 0-3 DFB-Pokal success against Nuremberg.

For RB Leipzig, goals were scored by Amadou Haidara (3'), Yussuf Poulsen (68') and Hee-Chan Hwang (90').

At least three goals per game were seen in 5 of the last 6 meetings where RB Leipzig have been involved. Their opponents scored 9 of them in these games whereas Leipzig bagged a total of 9.

Mainz WLWWLW

Mainz go into this clash following a 1-5 DFB-Pokal win versus Havelse in their most recent game.

In that match, Mainz had 73% possession and 30 attempts at goal with 12 on target. For Mainz, goals were scored by Jean-Philippe Mateta (57', 79', 90'), Ádám Szalai (77') and Robin Quaison (86'). For their opponents, Havelse had 11 attempts at goal with 4 on target. Plume (17') scored for Havelse.

A run of reliable showings by the Mainz defenders has resulted in the number of goals they’ve conceded amounting to 4 from their past 6 clashes in total. Over that same period of time, their own attack force has managed to score 12. Such a trend isn’t assured to be sustained here, though.

👥 Head to head

A glance at their prior head-to-head meetings going back to 09/12/2017 shows that RB Leipzig have won 3 of these and Mainz 1, with the tally of drawn games standing at 2.

Those games weren’t short on goals, either, with 31 in all at an average of 5.17 goals per meeting.

The last league meeting featuring the two was Bundesliga 1 match day 27 on 24/05/2020 which finished with the scoreline of Mainz 0-5 RB Leipzig.

In that game, Mainz managed 34% possession and 4 shots on goal with 1 of them on target.

At the other end, RB Leipzig got 20 attempts on goal with 10 on target. Timo Werner (11', 48', 75'), Yussuf Poulsen (23') and Marcel Sabitzer (36') scored.

The referee was Markus Schmidt.

🗞️ Team News: RB Leipzig

Ibrahima Konaté (Hip Injury), Fabrice Hartmann (Ruptured knee ligament) and Konrad Laimer (Ankle fracture) are unavailable for RB Leipzig manager Julian Nagelsmann.

We think that Leipzig should employ a 3-4-2-1 system in the match and select Peter Gulacsi, Lukas Klostermann, Dayot Upamecano, Willi Orban, José Angel Tasende, Tyler Adams, Kevin Kampl, Nordi Mukiele, Hee-Chan Hwang, Dani Olmo and Yussuf Poulsen.

ℹ️ Team News: Mainz

In an otherwise full-strength group, there is only the lone fitness problem for the Mainz manager Achim Beierlorzer to be concerned about. Dong-won Ji (Foot Injury) won’t be playing here.

We reckon that Mainz could decide to elect for a 4-1-4-1 formation, giving starts to Robin Zentner, Ridle Baku, Moussa Niakhate, Jerry St. Juste, Daniel Brosinski, Leandro Barreiro Martins, Robin Quaison, Karim Onisiwo, Danny Latza, Jonathan Burkardt and Jean-Philippe Mateta.

💡 Prediction

In our view, Mainz should get enough chances to score against this RB Leipzig team, but it may not be as many as the goals that they could concede.

We’re expecting both teams to score in a 2-1 advantage for RB Leipzig when all is said and done. We’ll have to see what happens.
