Meanwhile, Mainz got off to a terrible start last season, stuck in last place and it seemed like a verdict.
But at the beginning of January the Danish coach Bo Svensson came and the team rushed. True, not immediately, but the final result is important here. Mainz finished in 12th place.In the spring, “Mainz” under the leadership of Svensson scored 22 points. The modest club even beat Bayern at home.
Bundesliga calendar and table
Last week Mainz beat Elversberg to advance to the next round of the German Cup. The victory turned out to be not easy, it was possible to put the squeeze on the opponent only in a penalty shootout.
A new stage begins in the life of Leipzig. And while it is difficult to say what awaits one of the most attractive clubs in Germany this season.
In the summer, Julian Nagelsmann left the team , with whose name all recent successes were associated. Instead, Jesse Marsh took over as head coach . The American had done a great job at Salzburg before that, but it is not yet very clear whether he will be able to keep Leipzig in the top 4.
In addition, defenders Dayo Upamekano and Ibrahima Konate left Leipzig. The team will now have a completely new center of defense. For this position, Joshko Guardiol was bought from Dynamo Zagreb, and Mohamed Simakan from Strasbourg.
But Leipzig’s main acquisition is André Silva from Eintracht. The Portuguese striker who scored 28 goals in the Bundesliga last season. If anything, more than the hyped Erling Holland. Last season, Leipzig missed a great striker.
Forecast and rate
You can bet on Mainz in this match at 9.10 , 1xbet app download for android offer a draw at 5.55 , and a victory for Leipzig at 1.36 .
And yet everything is not so obvious. Firstly, Leipzig still needs to be looked at, no one knows yet how the team will play under the leadership of the new coach, and secondly, Mainz has noticeably changed after the appointment of Svensson. Odds for Leipzig are understated. Too.
Bet – both teams will score + match total over 2.5 in 2.22 .
Perhaps, for now, it is better to bet on goals, and not on the outcome. “Leipzig” does not always confirm the status of a clear favorite, and even more so on a visit.
