RB Leipzig: Team News

Emil Forsberg and Dayot Upamecano should be able to play this weekend for Leipzig, previously unavailable through illness and suspension retrospectively.

Ibrahima Konate and Kevin Kampl should also be able to return.

Marcel Sabitzer is expected to make a return to the first-team squad this week

Mainz 05: Team News

Jean-Philippe Mateta missed last week's match due to a suspension but is expected to be back on Sunday.

Danny Latza and Stefan Bell have also overcome injuries and will be available, although goalkeeper Robin Zentner is out for the entire season, so Florian Muller should feature in goal again.

Today's game is a crucial one for both sides.

Mainz are currently four points away from the drop in the Bundesliga, whilst Leipzig are in fifth place and a win would take them up to third in the table, a position which would see them qualify for the Champions League.

Both teams performed differently to how people would have expected last week, with Mainz drawing 2-2 against FC Köln and Leipzig struggling to a 1-1 draw against SC Freiburg

Kick-off time
