Liverpool vs Mainz prediction. The match will take place on July 23, 2021. Let's evaluate the current form of the teams and select the optimal odds for this confrontation.
Jurgen Klopp once led Mainz, and now he will play in a friendly match against one of his former clubs. The season for Mainz and Liverpool will start in mid-August. Therefore, the result of the upcoming meeting may be unpredictable.
The only head-to-head meeting of the teams took place five years ago. It was also of a comradely nature. Then Mainz scored two goals in each of the halves and did not allow Liverpool to distinguish themselves.
Liverpool had a lot of personnel problems last season, so it was difficult for them to qualify for the Champions League. A series of injuries affected primarily the defensive line. Therefore, the club continued to strengthen it in the current transfer window by signing Ibrahima Konate from Leipzig. At the same time, the club lost Wijnaldum, who moved to PSG as a free agent. Liverpool played two friendly matches, but could only achieve draws with Wacker - 1:1 and Stuttgart - 1:1.
Mainz spent most of last season in the basement of the Bundesliga table. But then the team was transformed, losing only one match out of the last 11. As a result, it soared to the 12th place. However, it is possible that the start of the new season of Mainz will fail again. He has played only one friendly match so far, in which he beat Wurzburger Kickers with a score of 2:1.
