Soccer predictions this week for RB Leipzig – Mainz 05

RB Leipzig hosts Mainz 05 at the Red Bull Arena in Leipzig in a match from the first round of the German Bundesliga. Stay with us because we are going to provide you with some quality soccer predictions for this week. Let’s get to work.

 

RB Leipzig are starting the season with a lot of ambition after reaching the Champions League 1/2-finals during the 2019/20 campaign. It seems Julian Nagelsmann was the right man for the job – the young manager is doing great things since he arrived at the club.

 

RB Leipzig already started their season with a win. In their first official game the Red Bulls visited Nurnberg in a match from the first round of the DFB Pokal. They showed some great confidence and took a 3-0 win at the Max-Morlock-Stadion. Amadou Haidara scored the first one after just three minutes of playing while Poulsen and Hwang Hee-Chan scored the other two for the Red Bulls.

 

Mainz 05 also won their first official game for the season. They visited Havelse for the DFB Pokal and didn’t face any trouble to take a 5-1 win. Until the 57th minute they were actually losing, but they regained their confidence and show what they’ve got. Mateta equalised while Adam Szalai put Mainz on the lead. Mateta scored two more until the final whistle while Quaison also scored.

 

Mainz 05’s manager Achim Beierlorzer admitted his team is the underdog against RB Leipzig. After all, they are facing a 1/2-finalist from the Champions League. It won’t be easy, but surely Mainz won’t approach this game with the mentality of a defeated team.

 

These are our soccer predictions for this week for the Bundesliga clash between RB Leipzig and Mainz 05 at the Red Bull Arena. The Red Bulls are favourites for the three points, so let’s see if they are going to show it.
