Bayern Munich vs Mainz Match Preview
Mainz have made a worryingly poor start to the season with three straight defeats – and life gets no easier as they travel to face Bayern Munich this weekend.
The 05ers – they were founded in 1905 – have lost all of their games decisively so far, including in the DFB-Pokal, to sit bottom of the early Bundesliga table, although three other clubs are also without a point.
But it looks unlikely that Mainz will get off the mark this side of next week’s international break because they now face their toughest test of the season, albeit Bayern Munich surprisingly were held to a 2-2 draw by Hertha Berlin in their opening home game.
However, Germany’s dominant club bounced back with a 3-0 victory at Schalke last weekend to indicate there is nothing fundamentally wrong – and that is certainly true of Robert Lewandowski, who has scored all five of the champions’ league goals this term and signed a new four-year contract this week.
This match could mark the full Bayern debut of Philippe Coutinho, who made his bow off the bench against Schalke on loan from Barcelona, while Thiago Alcantara is expected to return after missing the trip to Gelsenkirchen with a neck problem.
Given the poor way in which they have started the season, avoiding embarrassment will be the first priority for Mainz here and it is very difficult to see them improving on the results they have had as Bayern begin to move into top gear.
