The visiting RB Leipzig side should be favourites in this visit to Mainz 05, as the away team holds a 24 point advantage from their 26 league games this season.

It's no vacation for neither Mainz nor RB Leipzig as both were in action only a few days ago. Expect some tired legs on the pitch and/or possibly some changes to the lineups.

Mainz 05 form and stats

4 victories, 2 draws and 7 defeats. That’s what Mainz 05 have to build on here at OPEL ARENA in the Bundesliga.

Mainz's previous game was also a home match, the defeat 0-5 versus RB Leipzig (placed 5th). Before that, Mainz played out a draw 2-2 when visiting Köln.

As you see from the result above, Mainz 05 suffered greatly in their last game. Thankfully the team has a new chance to prove themselves in this one.

The Mainz fans would probably like to see some more goals scored at their own stadium in the league, the tally being 15 in 13 matches. Defensively it’s touch-and-go for the home team as 21 goals have been conceded.

RB Leipzig form and stats

The story so far for the visiting team, who have the most clean sheets (7) away in Bundesliga, on their Bundesliga travels is 7 wins, 4 draws and 2 defeats.

Leipzig play their second away game in a row, but can be confident going into this one after the 5-0 victory visiting Mainz 05 (placed 15th). A 1-1 draw was the result before that, hosting Freiburg.

As mentioned above, Leipzig was the only team on the pitch versus Mainz 05 in their previous game, winning 5-0. This could be a tougher task. It's hard not to mention Timo Werner's lethal finishing against Mainz 05. three goals were a big reason for the important victory.

Leipzig have scored more than twice on average per away game (in the league), an impressive attacking display. They have 30 goals from 13 away matches. As opposed to that, RB Leipzig have seen the ball go into their own net 13 times on the road.

Head 2 Head

Mainz - RB Leipzig 0-5 was the story when these teams last met, earlier this season. Head-2-head stats last eight meetings: one - two - five (Mainz wins - draws - RB Leipzig wins). As for goals, eight matches ended with three or more goals (over 2,5), zero had two or less.
