FC Bayern Munich – Mainz 05 (Bundesliga)

Having left Santiago Bernabéu after being unable of reaching the Champions League’s semi-finals, Bayern Munich return to the Allianz Arena this Saturday afternoon, where they will host Mainz 05 in clash referent to Bundesliga’s 30th round. The Bavarians won just one of their last 3 games in the Bundesliga and need to win this tie to regain their confidence ahead of their cup semi-final next week. Mainz 05 has finally returned to winning ways after beating Hertha Berlin in the Bundesliga last round, but are still evolved in the relegation battle.

FC Bayern Munich holds the 1st place in the Bundesliga table with 69 points, which comes from 21 victories, 6 draws and 2 defeats, with 71 goals scored and 15 conceded in the process. The last two matches away from home ground, in the Bundesliga, didn’t go to well for the Munique side, having only picked up a single point from 6 available, although they have won against Borussia Dortmund at Allianz Arena in the process, what leaves Bayern Munich with 8 points advantage ahead Leipzig.

Carlo Ancelotti’s side are psychologically shattered after being, once more, ruled out of the Champions League, this time thanks to Real Madrid in the quarter-finals. Now, the Bavarians need to win this game in order to return to winning ways and get their confidence back ahead of their German Cup semi-final next week, where they will face Borussia Dortmund. At home, in the Bundesliga, the Bavaria Giants are yet to be defeated and won their last 4 home matches, scoring 21 goals and conceding only 1 in the process. It is a fact that the Munique’s side had a really tough game on Tuesday and Carlo Ancelotti will most likely rotate his team after 120 minutes game. However, the Italian coach has at his disposal a vast list of great talented players who certainly will not disappoint.

In their last 5 official games, FC Bayern Munich won 1 game, draw 1 and lost the other 3. This sequence of results began started with a 1-0 away defeat against Hoffenheim. This defeat was followed by a 4-1 home win against Borussia Dortmund, a 1-2 home defeat at the hand of Real Madrid, a 0-0 away draw against Bayer Leverkusen, and in their last clash, a 4-2 away defeat against Real Madrid. Manuel Neuer will miss the rest of the season with a fractured left foot.

Probable Lineup: Ulreich – Rafinha, Hummels, Alaba and Bernat – Kimmich and Vidal – Coman, Alcántara and Douglas Costa – Muller.

bundesligaMainz 05, on the other hand, sits 15th place in the Bundesliga table with 32 points, which comes from 9 victories, 5 draws and 15 defeats, with 37 goals scored and 47 conceded in the process. After going through a terrible moment where they have suffered 5 defeats in a row, Mainz finally putted an end to their misery and won against Hertha Berlim, in the Bundesliga last round, and now it’s imperative to keep going on winning ways in order to escape the relegation battle. With the same amount of points as FC Augsburg, who sits on the relegation play-off place, things are starting to look nasty for Mainz. Making matters even worse, Martin Schmidt’s men lost 9 of their last 10 games away from home. This is a team with great defensive difficulties, and against a team with such enormous offensive power as Bayern Munich, things won’t be easy in this trip.

In their last 5 official games, Mainz won 1 and lost the other 4. This sequence of results started with a 0-1 home defeat against Schalke 04. This defeat was followed by a 2-1 defeat in Ingolstadt’s ground, a 2-3 home defeat against Leipzig, a 1-0 defeat in Freiburg’s home, and in their last trip, a 1-0 win against Hertha Berlim. Emil Berggreen and Gaetan Bussmann are both out due to injury.

Probable Lineup: Huth – Donati, Balogun, Bell, Hack and Brosinski – Oztunali, Frei, Latza and Quaison – Córdoba.

Bayern Munich won 7 of their last direct clashes, losing the remaining.

After a tough game in the Champions League quarter-finals, which ended up being a huge blow on the confidence of the players, this is not a game where is expected a lot of goals, although Bayern has clearly enough quality to win without problems. Bayern will try to score an early goal and manage the pace of the game in order to manage physical fatigue.
