RB Leipzig need to get a win because they are down to fourth in the Bundesliga, while their opponents are just a place above the relegation play-off position. Leipzig are now seven points behind the league leaders due to many draws and losing ground.

Mainz saw them lose 8-0 at Leipzig and it could have been a lot worse. They trailed 7-9 with 40 minutes to go but only conceded one more as Timo Werner completed his hat-trick. Mainz are only a couple of points above the relegation play-off position but nine clear of the automatic relegation places.

Leipzig can keep their title hopes alive with an away win.
