Bayern Munich v Mainz, Sat 17:30
Spirits will be significantly dampened in the Bayern Munich camp following a midweek loss to league leaders, Borussia Dortmund, but the Bavarians can’t stay in the dumps for too long as Bet365 back the German giants to bounce back against Mainz as visitors can also take advantage with their exclusive live stream option and watch all the action from the Allianz.
Wednesday’s loss to the league leaders means that Die Bayern are now six points adrift of The Black Yellows who sit comfortably at the top of the German top flight and look almost certain to retain their domestic title.
Before the defeat, Jupp Heynckes’ men were enjoying an eight-match winning run across all competitions but form would suggest that the German giants won’t remain in the dumps for too long and will be more than capable of ousting Mainz on Saturday.
Bet365 will offer free bets worth £200/€200 to spend on any weekend fixture, including all European games, and will stream all the action from the Allianz Arena tonight! Exclusive to SqueakyBumTime.com
The Allianz Arena has been a fortress of sorts this campaign and a very hard place to travel to with Bayern scoring an average of 3.13 goals per game when performing at home.
Preventing goals hasn’t been an issue for the Munich outfit either, with Der FCB conceding a magnificent average of just 0.40 goals per home fixture this campaign, managing to maintain a clean sheet in 60% of those games.
However, Mainz have already beaten Bayern once this season and although a mid-table finish looks almost assured, Die Nullfünfer will be striving to complete the double against massive opposition.
Thomas Tuchel’s side have won three of their last six meetings, losing the other three and have proven their capability of performing well away from home after a 3-0 win over Werder Bremen on their own turf two weeks ago.
The O-Fives have failed to score in just 13% of their away matches this campaign and will be working to set Bayern’s title bid back even further when they travel to Munich on Saturday
