Bayern Munich vs Mainz
Date: Sunday, 17 March 2019
Kick-Off at 17:00 UK / 18:00 CET
Venue: Allianz Arena (Munich).
Bayern Munich took advantage of Borussia’s recent slip-ups to move lock on points with them at the top of the Bundesliga standings.
The reigning champions are thus looking well on pace to defend the title after a thread of 12 wins in last 13 league matches. The Bavarians will be massive favourites to keep the hot run of form going on Sunday when they play host to bottom-half Mainz at Allianz-Arena.
Nevertheless, the team led by Niko Kovac will head into this in low spirits in spite of mentioned winning streak. They lost 1-3 at home to Liverpool on Wednesday evening to suffer from an early Champions League exit in the last 16 round of the competition.
On the other hand, it means Bayern Munich can completely focus on earning the domestic double which is bad news for Mainz.
Bayern Munich vs Mainz: Head-to-head
Mainz have never been a serious opposition to Bayern Munich.
Der FCB won four and drew one of past five head to head ties with Mainz.
The streak includes this term’s 1-2 victory for Bayern at OPEL ARENA.
Bayern Munich won 9, drew 2 and lost 2 of 13 home matches against the O-Fives.
Bayern Munich vs Mainz: Prediction
Mainz are far from the form they had in the first half of the season. They lost five of past six league outings and have nothing to hope for against the red-hot reigning champions here. The O-Fives lost three on the spin away from home (3-0 to Augsburg and Wolfsburg and 2-1 to Hertha BSC).
The Bavarians bagged as many as six goals past top-half Wolfsburg side last weekend at Allianz Arena. The hosts will be motivated to rebound from the Champions League failure and we would not be surprised to see a demolishing victory by three or more goals difference for Niko Kovac’s men here.
