Our football match prediction:
Given the money that has been pumped up into the squad over the last few transfer windows, Leipzig’s performances have been meetings public expectations this season. The newcomers have been impressive in Bundesliga so far this term and they sit in second place in the standings ahead of Matchday 10. The Red Bulls are eyeing their fifth consecutive win in the German elite division and they are regarded as favourites to win Sunday’s football match against Mainz. Die Nullfunfer, on the other hand, have been having their ups and downs this season and seeing that they failed to score in previous two away games in Bundesliga, we predict that Leipzig are going to extend their winning run in the league to five games. Marcel Sabitzer scored a brace in a 2-0 win over Darmstadt at the weekend, meaning that Mainz defenders should have him at bay. You should know that the two teams have never met before in the German top flight.
