Pep Guardiola’s men currently hold a 23 point lead at the top of the Bundesliga with 9 games left and they could even secure the title this weekend depending on results in the Schalke and Dortmund games.

Regardless of events this weekend it is a simply case of “when” for Bayern and there will be plenty to cheer as the club extends their record-breaking unbeaten run to 51 games.

The club stretched their run to 50 games with a 2-1 win over Bayer Leverkusen and have won their 17 games on the trot in the Bundesliga.

However that run will be put to the test against a Mainz side that has climbed to fifth on the back of just one defeat in their last 9 games.

Key to their recent form has been forwards Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting and Shinji Okazaki.

Cameroon star Choupo-Moting has scored four goals in his last five games while Okazaki took his tally to 11 with a brace in the 4-2 win over Hoffenheim last weekend and needs just three more goals to break the record for the most goals by a Japanese player in a Bun-desliga season.

The record is currently held by former Borussia Dortmund star Shinji Kagawa but with a lot of games still to be played the 27 year old will be confident.

Another man who will be confident going into the game is manager Thomas Tuchel, the former defender, now in his fifth season in charge, has proved an astute appointment.

The 40 year old rather cryptically revealed that his side would make it difficult for Bayern on Saturday, telling the club’s official website “If the little one wants to beat the great, then he does not do well in the classroom of the great, he lures him into a dark corner,”

“We want to provide them with tasks. If they solve them, then we go over there and con-gratulate. Then no-one will be ashamed of us.”
