Mainz and RB Leipzig will meet each other as the Bundesliga 2021/22 season begins and both will be hoping to start their campaign with a victory.
Mainz vs RB Leipzig Match Preview
Bo Svensson pulled off a near-miracle in rescuing Mainz from relegation last season. Not only did Mainz’s prospects looked dismal at the halfway point of last season, but they also had only seven points and were eight points away from a relegation play-off berth, and they should have been relegated. No club had ever stayed up after such a poor first half of a Bundesliga season in history. Svensson’s metamorphosis, on the other hand, created history for the club and would look to continue that once again this season.
Their practice has been plunged into disarray, as Mainz suspended training on Wednesday due to an acute COVID-19 outbreak, with 14 players or members of staff now quarantined. They will most likely field a second-string team in their opening game.
RB Leipzig ranked second in the Bundesliga and entered the DFB Cup final in 2020/21, marking just the second time in their still-young existence that they had accomplished both achievements. In all but one of their five Bundesliga seasons, they have ranked in the top three. The club’s aims will include a sustained title campaign as well as runs in the cup and the Champions League.
