Two of the top six in the Bundesliga standings clash on Saturday, as Bayern Munich look for a third straight victory, which they would be hoping will be enough to send them to the top of the standings. However, Mainz has also won their previous two, and will be looking for the points to move into the Champions League places.
Bayern Munich remain second in the Bundesliga standings coming into this fixture on the 12th round. The Bavarian giants could move to the top of the standings this weekend if they can pick up maximum points against Mainz. At present, they are a point behind the shock early leaders, Union Berlin.
Bayern has been in solid form over their previous four league games, as they have picked up three victories and a draw. They also come into this fixture having picked up back-to-back victories in their previous two. Their most recent win was a very professional display on the road against Hoffenheim, as they claimed a 2-0 win. Jamal Musiala opened the scoring after just 17 minutes, before the advantage was doubled in the 38th minute by Eric Maxim Choupo Moting.
Mainz won’t be overwhelmed coming into this fixture, as they have been in excellent form themselves over recent weeks, as they have picked up back-to-back victories in the Bundesliga. That solid run of form has lifted them up to sixth in the standings, and they could move into the top four this weekend with a victory.
Their latest win was a very dominant success against FC Köln, as they ran out 5-0 winners last Friday. There were five different scorers in that victory for Mainz, with Marcus Ingvartsen, Dominik Kohr, Anton Stach, Aaron Caricol and Karim Onisiwo all finding the net.
Bayern Munich vs Mainz Head to Head
Mainz come into this fixture with a very solid record in recent fixtures against Bayern, as they have won two of the previous three matches. However, that is as many wins as they had recorded in the previous 20 before the start of that run.
Bayern Munich vs Mainz Prediction
Bayern’s recent form has been incredibly strong, but Mainz should be ready for this test, as they have also put in some solid performances recently. However, we could see Bayern running out winners in this fixture, with both teams registering at least one goal.
