Bayern Munich vs. Mainz 05 Match Analysis and Prediction

Bayern Munich opens their 2021 campaign with hopes of extending their league at the top of the table this weekend. The side welcomes Mainz 05 at the Allianz Arena this Sunday with kickoff at 8 pm.

The visitors travel on Sunday with hopes of changing their current state with their relegation battles becoming a nightmare. Bayern head into the match on the back of a 1-2 win against Bayer Leverkusen.

2020 prove a historic year for Bayern Munich, who picked up the Champions League trophy, Bundesliga, and German Cup treble. However, Hani Flick will not cherish their past triumphs ahead of the New Year clash.

The side ended 2020 in style with Lewandowski with a last-minute strike securing a crucial 2-1 win at Bayer Leverkusen. The next ten opponents for Bayern are currently not occupying the top seven places in the table. Hence, Flick will be looking to open a sizeable gap at the top of the table to pick up their ninth successive league title.

On the other hand, Mainz has only one win in their last 13 league matches this season as they languish from the bottom and five points above the relegation zone. Achim Beierlorzer was sacked earlier this campaign the side-parted ways with Jan-Moritz Litche over the Christmas period. The side continues with their struggles to find form and survive this season.
