|Date||Saturday, April 01, 2023|
Two teams with different fates will meet at the Red Bull Arena on Saturday, 1 April 2023. RB Leipzig, who are currently in a slump, will host Mainz, who is currently on fire. This match is part of Week 26 of the German Bundesliga.
Leipzig are currently eight points behind the Champions League zone and must get up soon if you don’t want to lose hope. Meanwhile, Mainz is chasing the top eight and hopes to continue its positive trend.
Leipzig suffered two humiliating defeats before the international break. They humiliated Manchester City 7-0 in the Champions League and beat Bochum 1-0 in the league. Coach Marco Rose also boosted his team with hard training during the international break.
Rose is also optimistic that he can lose his best squad. Most of the players who played for their national teams have returned to the club. “We continue to try to give our best. We are also happy to see that Abdou Diallo has recovered from injury,” Rose said in Leipzig’s official broadcast.
On the opposite side, Mainz is at the peak of its performance. They are unbeaten in the last six matches in the league. They were even able to beat two big teams, namely Bayer Leverkusen and Borussia Monchengladbach. It’s just that, they also failed to achieve a full victory in their last two matches. They were held to a draw by Hertha Berlin and Freiburg.
However, the last match showed the steel mentality of Bo Svensson’s team. Against Freiburg, Mainz was able to save a point thanks to Karim Onisiwo’s goal in the final minutes. “It’s very emotional when you can score a goal in the 90th minute. We’ve been unbeaten in six straight games. We want to maintain this good performance,” said Onisiwo, quoted from Mainz’s official website.
Entertaining Mainz, which is in prime condition, Timo Werner has prepared the best strategy. Apart from Christopher Nkunku, who has scored 12 goals for Leipzig this season, the 27-year-old striker from Germany, Timo Werner will be Leipzig’s mainstay on the front lines. Timo has scored 7 goals in the league this season.
While Mainz continues to make Karim Onisiwo a key player. The Austrian striker came to Mainz’s life as he scored a stoppage-time equalizer against Freiburg. Onisiwo is currently the top scorer with 9 goals for the team, followed by Marcus Ingvartsen with 8 goals.
