Bayern Munich vs. Mainz 05 Betting Tips
Mainz travel to Munich for their Matchday 30 clash on the back of a 1-0 win over Hertha last week, hoping to cause an upset at troubled Bavarians and snatch any points in their attempt to escape the danger zone. Although Bayern come into the match after a disappointing loss at Real Madrid (4-2 and 6-3 on aggregate), we don’t feel they’ll have troubles outclassing the visitors and the home win comes off as a banker bet here at 1/6 with William Hill
Bayern Munich have been in a slump and now suffered three losses in their last five outings, with one win and one draw in the process, and are desperate for a return to the winning ways. They’ve been held to an unconvincing goalless draw at Bayer Leverkusen in their last Bundesliga outing, but Mainz don’t seem to be the same sort of a challenge now.
Die Nullfunfer have suffered five losses in their last six outings and although they’ve returned to the winning form with a narrow 1-0 win over Hertha at home, it’s a longshot to assume they can now build on it. Bavarians’ loss to Real Madrid last week has been their only home defeat this term, and they should now have what it takes to return to the streak.
They’ve netted 17 goals in their last five matches there, earning four convincing wins in the process. We’ll thus go for Over 2.5 goals FT here too, backing it at 4/9 with Ladbrokes
and hoping to see another confident display from the home side on the day.
Bayern Munich vs. Mainz 05 Stats
Bayern have much better head-to-head records against their rivals (16/2/4) but Mainz have snatched all three points on their last trip to Allianz Arena (1-2 win in March 2016). The Bavarians have returned the favour in December with a 1-3 win at OPEL Arena, and we do feel they’ll now build on the tally.
We’ll go for a comfortable win and back a 3-0 correct score prediction as well, which comes at 11/2 with BetVictor
and looks the best value at this point.
