Bayern Munich – Mainz 05
Bayern Munich welcomes Mainz 05 at the Allianz Arena in a match from the third round of the Bundesliga. The champions will try to secure their second win for the season, while Mainz are still without a single point being won so far.
At this moment Bayern Munich are 6th in the Bundesliga standings with 4 points won. The Bavarians are two points behind the leader and main rival for the title Borussia Dortmund, but it’s still too early to worry about that. It’s just the beginning of the season.
In the previous round Bayern achieved their first win for the season in the Bundesliga. Niko Kovac’ team didn’t give any chances to Schalke 04 during its visit to the Veltins Arena. The champions won the game with 3-0, showing their class. All of the three goals in the game were scored by Robert Lewandowski, who is already leading the goalscorers’ chart in the league with five goals.
During the match in Gelsenkirchen two of Bayern’s new signings made their debuts. The Brazilian star Phillippe Coutinho and the Croatian winger Ivan Perisic entered the pitch after the halftime break. Let’s see if they are going to start the next game.
Mainz 05 are without points and with just one goal scored after the first two rounds of the Bundesliga. Right now they are at the bottom of the standings.
After the defeat against Freiburg in the first round, Mainz suffered another one against Borussia M’gladbach at the Opel Arena in Mainz. The Swedish striker Robin Quaison opened the score for the hosts, but Borussia M’gladbach proved to be better and turned the game in their favour.
We can conclude that Mainz 05 are huge underdogs against Bayern Munich, especially at the Allianz Arena in the Bavarian capital. We expect to see some goals scored by the hosts in this one.
