Prediction for this match

Jesse March‘s first league game in Leipzig ended disappointingly when his team was beaten 0-1 on the opening weekend of the new season in the coronavirus hit Mainz 05.

The game was dubious initially with the hosts isolating 11 players and three staff, however a tip in the 12th Moussa Niakhate was enough to condemn the visitors to defeat. Interestingly, this goal was Niakhate’s sixth Bundesliga goal and his fourth on home soil against Leipzig.

Despite more than twice the number of shots on goal and 72% possession of the ball, the Red Bulls couldn’t find a way to break a resilient defensive line from Mainz.

Marsch comes from RB Salzburg in the summer and has the task of breaking the streak of nine consecutive Bundesliga titles of FC Bayern Munich, with the current defending champion now being managed by his predecessor Julian Nagelsmann.

Leipzig is going into its first home game of the new season after beating Stuttgart in five of the six competitive games, the other game ended in a draw.

The Red Bulls – who won both duels against Stuttgart last season without conceding a goal – had the third-best Bundesliga home record last season with eleven wins and four draws from 17 games in the Red Bull Arena and their first three points of the new season on Friday.

In stark contrast, the Stuttgart team started the new season brilliantly, because after a 6-0 win against BFC Dynamo in the first round of the DFB Cup, there was a comfortable 5-1 home win against promoted Fürth on Saturday.

A bracket of Marc-Oliver Kempf as well as strikes by Wataru Endo, Philipp Klement and Hamadi Al Ghaddioui helped the hosts to the first three points of the season and to their first opening win in the Bundesliga since 2011/12.

After leading his team to promotion from the second division in 2019-20 and achieving an impressive ninth place in the highest season last season, Stuttgart was head coach Pellegrino Matarazzo hopes for a third successful campaign at the top.

The Swabians are going into their first away game against Leipzig after they have never beaten them and only scored a single goal in their 3-1 home defeat in February 2019.

However, Matarazzo’s men have shown great form in front of goal so far this season, hitting the net 11 times in their two games.

Experienced Swedish international Emil Forsberg is expected to play in the role of number 10 ahead of him, with support in midfield from Christopher Nkunku and Amadou Haidara.

As for Stuttgart, Matarazzo has to contend with several first-team absents, including Sasa Kalajdzic, Nikolas Nartey and Tanguy Coulibaly, all of which tested positive for the coronavirus.

Naouirou Ahamada (Calf), Momo Cisse (Ankle), Lilian Egloff (Foot), Chris Fuhrich (Break of collarbone), Orel Managala (Hip) and Silas Katompa Mvumpa (Knee) are also excluded in the event of injuries.
