On Saturday Mainz will host Leipzig in their Opel Arena stadium. Mainz is in 17th position, while Leipzig ranked 2nd with 4 points less than the leader in Bundesliga Bayern Munich.
Mainz will try to get out of the relegation zone. The team has 10 points less than the relegation line, so every point is important for their survival. Mainz will be without Jeremiah St Juste, but Daniel Brosinski or Pierre Kunde will be available due to injury. Mainz has football stats 1/4/12 this season and goal difference 15 scored and 36 concerned. From their last 5 games, they have 1 draw and 4 losses, so will tryo to get as less as point in this match.
Leipzig looks at 1st place, but draw with Wolfsburg and lose from Borussia Dortmund get this plan a little more difficult at the moment. The team makes good games at all and there is still many games to get at 1st place.
Nagelsmann’s side was made to work hard for their 1-0 victory, which was no surprise, so in this match they will play for 3 points and get a better position to attack the 1st lace.
Possible line ups Mainz: Zentner; Niakhate, Bell, Hack; Oztunali, Latza, Barreiro, Boetius, Mwene; Burkhardt, Quaison
Possible line ups Leipzig: Gulasci; Orban, Upamecano, Halstenberg; Mukiele, Kampl, Sabitzer, Angelino; Forsberg, Olmo; Poulsen
