Bayern Munich vs Mainz Match Preview
Bayern Munich host Mainz for their Matchday 26 clash on Sunday, just days after seeing a disappointing 1-3 Champions League loss to Liverpool which saw them crash out of the competition early on. They now return to their title chase and Niko Kovac has a task to lift their team spirits.
Bavarians now sit 1st placed only for their better goal difference to Borussia Dortmund and building on their five-match winning streak in Bundesliga will be crucial at Allianz Arena. They’ve beaten Schalke 04 (3-1), Augsburg (2-3), Hertha (1-0), Monchengladbach (1-5), and Wolfsburg (6-0) since early February with goals coming from all directions, which should have them in a great mood despite mid-week disappointment.
Mainz have, on the other hand, dropped down the table with a troubled streak where they suffered five losses in six outings and failing to find the net at all on three of those occasions will be just as worrying. They have been scoring more goals at home but Sandro Schwarz has a lot to work on with losses to Hertha (2-1) and Monchengladbach (0-1) now behind them.
Die Nullfunfer bagged just one win in six trips since mid-December too and building on such a tally should prove a great task in Munich too, where a loss could as well see them drop into the danger zone – despite an 11-point gap to the 16th placed Stuttgart now to their name.
We will back Bayern to outclass the rivals and recuperate quickly in front of the home crowd, as we go for a Home win to Nil at 4/5 with bet365 in hope Niko Kovac’s men can capitalize on the rivals’ goalscoring woes.
We have seen Serge Gnabry in great shape moving forward and we now hope to see him find the net for the third time in four appearances, as we back the 23-year-old to find the net anytime at 13/10 with bet365.
