Mainz vs Bayern Munich
Date: Saturday, 27 October 2018
Kick-Off at 14:30 UK / 15:30 CET
Venue: OPEL ARENA (Mainz).
Bayern Munich somehow managed to survive Wolfsburg and AEK Athens tests to pick up two straight wins within the last seven days.
These successes came after a four-game run without a victory for the Bavarian giants who are still looking to find the kind of form which led them to Bundesliga dominance in the last decade.
Der FCB dominated the pitch from the very get go last time out away at VOLKWAGEN ARENA.
They had a two-goal cushion through Robert Lewandowski brace, but suddenly got into a rough position when Wout Weghorst pulled one back for the Wolves six minutes after Arjen Robben was sent off for his second booking of the game. Nonetheless, James Rodriguez sealed the deal for Niko Kovac’s men netting team’s third 18 minutes from time.
Mainz vs Bayern Munich: Head-to-head
Bayern Munich were the dominant force in the history of head to head clash with the O-Fives.
The Bavarians won 18, drew 3 and lost 4 of 5 meetings with Mainz so far.
Bayern easily earned the domestic double over The O-Fives with two convincing clean sheet wins in the previous term of Bundesliga (4-0 and 2-0).
Three or more goals were seen in five of last six head to head games.
Mainz vs Bayern Munich: Prediction
The team led by Sandro Schwarz fell down to 13th place after making a generally fine kick off to the new season. Mainz were struggling badly to create in the final third of late. They will come into this after failing to score a single goal in last five Bundesliga matches.
The O-Fives lost 4-0 to Borussia Monchengladbach last weekend. It is certainly not the kind of result you want to get before playing the defending champions and the strongest team in the country.
Bayern can’t afford any more slip-ups as Dortmund are four points clear at the top of the standings. We expect the visitors to go strong from the very start and pick up an easy straightforward win against the struggling opposition here.
