The Bavarians take on the Mainz team at Allianz Arena to close the points gap on top of the Bundesliga!

There will be a fierce match in the Bundesliga when Bayern Munich and Mainz play. Mainz’s grit and Bayern’s supremacy promise an exciting matchup. Bayern’s attacking strength and Mainz’s defensive tactics will probably determine the result, as both teams are competing for a favourable end in this close match.

Location: Allianz Arena

Form:

Players to Watch

Harry Kane (Bayern Munich)

Harry Kane has emerged as a pivotal player with two goals in his last game as well. The Englishmen has been playing a significant role in Bayern’s latest success. In this match, Kane’s nearly faultless technique—which includes hitting the net with both feet and finding the corners—will be extremely important. He will be the key player in the upcoming game.

Sepp van den Berg (Mainz)

Mainz may need van den Berg’s defensive skills and game reading to stop Bayern Munich from attacking. His tactical positioning and aerial skill could give Mainz an advantage in defence and possibly affect the result of the game. The youngster has scored two goals so far this season as well.

  • FC Bayern Munich have beaten Mainz 05 in all six of their previous Bundesliga home encounters.
