After being held to a frustrating home draw last time out, RB Leipzig will be hoping to return to winning ways this weekend when they travel to the Opel Arena to take on struggling Mainz. With Borussia Monchengladbach winning again, Julian Nagelsmann’s men slipped to fourth. Can they get a big three points in Mainz on Sunday?

Mainz Preview – Can the 05ers spring a surprise on home soil?

Achim Beierlorzer’s Mainz returned to action with a 2-2 draw at Cologne last Sunday. It was a thrilling encounter, with the 05ers coming from two goals down to rescue a point – Taiwo Awoniyi and Pierre Malong got the goals.

Since suffering four straight losses, Beierlorzer’s boys have made themselves hard to beat. A 4-0 reverse at Wolfsburg in February remains their only loss in six league games. Since then, Mainz have won one and drawn two.

Our betting prediction:
RB Leipzig to win both halves

(odds taken 1810 GMT, Friday 22 May)

The club from Rhineland-Palatinate have struggled at the Opel Arena this term, winning only four of 13 home league fixtures. Mainz have lost four of their previous seven on home turf in the Bundesliga, though they are unbeaten in three (one win, two draws).

This is a vital fixture for Mainz, who hover just above the drop zone in Germany’s top tier. They have 27 points to their name, with 16th-placed Fortuna Dusseldorf just four points behind. Can Beierlorzer’s troops cause a massive upset this weekend?

RB Leipzig Preview – Red Bulls to secure another easy win over Mainz?

RB Leipzig struggled to get going last weekend, returning to action with a disappointing 1-1 home draw with Freiburg. The guests were the better team for large parts, even having a goal ruled out for offside right at the very end. Julian Nagelsmann’s side were not at the races and were lucky to escape with a point.

Leipzig’s title hopes have been dealt a huge blow in recent games, as they have drawn each of their past three in the Bundesliga. In fact, five of their last seven in the league have ended in stalemates, and they have won only two of eight.

The Red Bulls’ patchy form has seen them slip seven points behind champions and current leaders Bayern Munich. To make matters worse, Borussia Dortmund and Borussia Monchengladbach – who are both above Leipzig in the table – are in fine fettle. In-form Bayer Leverkusen are a point behind in fifth, also.

Leipzig have won just once away from home in league action since mid-December, but nothing less than three points on Sunday will suffice for Nagelsmann and his men.
