Mainz are certainly struggling to get back to winning ways and still could not achieve that in that last match against Koln as they played out a 2:2 draw.
That further ensures they have only managed 1 win from their last 5 matches with 3 draws to rue on. Mainz's form is the true definition of inconsistencies. 2 wins, 3 draws and 4 losses is the shape of their last 9 Bundesliga matches.
A focus on their home run is not even looking rosy either, it still irks of inconsistent performance. Their last 5 home matches has seen them lose 2, drawn 2 and won only 1 game. However, they are yet to lose in the last 3 home matches of which they kept 2 clean sheets.

All their games have never lacked an influx of goals. While both teams to score has been recorded 5 times from those 7 matches, over 3.5 goals were seen 6 times.
RB Leipzig did not get the kind of result they would have wanted after the pandemic resumption as they only managed a 1:1 draw with Freiburg.
That result further stretched their unbeaten run to 8 matches which have 4 wins and 4 draws but you will agree those draws are not good enough especially when you consider that 3 of the last 4 matches were actually drawn.
However, they remain a very strong side as they have kept 5 clean sheets from those same 8 matches and ensured they scored in 7 of those matches.
Their away form also looks cool, RB Leipzig is unbeaten in the last 4 away matches all of which ended with clean sheets.
