German Football Live Betting: Mainz 05 vs. Bayern MunichPublished December 19, 2014 by Amir G
The Bundesliga's unstoppable Bayern Munich visits Mainz for one last game before the winter break (7:30pm UK time).
Undisputed Bundesliga leader Bayern Munich travels to the Coface Arena today to meet home team FSV Mainz 05 (7:30pm UK time). Bayern has beaten Mainz in the last four times they've met and this is the team's first meeting this Bundesliga season.
Bayern's Unbeaten Run
Bayern Munich is absolutely dominating the league, not losing even one game in 16 matches played since the start of the season so far, the Bavarians have collected points from all games. Pep Guardiola's side possesses an amazing goal difference of 36 – Bayern has scored 36 goals in 16 games, only sustaining 3 in the process. Bayern is currently sitting at 42 points (13 wins and 3 draws).
They've beaten Sport-Club Freiburg 2-0 on Tuesday; this is Bayern's last game before the winter break and some have asked whether they'll be distracted, something which Guardiola denied saying that the team is travelling to Mainz in order to win.
Mainz is currently positioned eleventh in the table with 18 points. The team has been displaying unstable performances throughout the season with 3 wins, 4 losses and 9 draws – the highest number in the league at the moment. Mainz hasn't won a game in eight matches and the draws could keep them up only for so long – they can sink closer to the relegation zone and the fans are pressing for a win.
To beat Bayern at the current state seems impossible, but Mainz could try and take advantage of Bayern's many injuries with key players such as Alonso and Lewandowski doubtful and Lahm, Martinez and Alcantara sidelined.
