Leipzig – Mainz Bundesliga Prediction and Preview: 9th December 2017
Firmly defeated in the previous round, 0-4 with Hoffenheim, the host team recorded a new defeat, 1-2 with Besiktas in the Champions League. The last defeat also recorded the exit of the competition, but the “bulls” qualified in the Europa League. Thus, they try to return to victory, especially as they have a perfect run in the Bundesliga: five wins and a draw. On the other side, after the defeats with Freiburg and Augsburg, the ostenians hardly hold on to the relegable places. With a difficult program in this year’s end, things are about to complicate even more. In the last direct confrontation, Leipzig scored 3-2.
Leipzig: Gulacsi – Bernardo, Konate, Orban, Halstenberg – Keita, Laimer – Kampl, Bruma – Y. Poulsen, Ti. Werner
Mainz: Zentner – Donati, Hack, Diallo, Brosinski – Gbamin – Maxim, Latza – Öztunali, De Blasis – Muto
