Bayern Munich secured their tenth consecutive Bundesliga title last weekend. Next weekend against Mainz, they will look to continue that momentum with their sixth straight win.
As for Bayern Munich, their job is done this season. With neither the Champions League nor the DFB Cup final on the horizon, the Bundesliga title was the only honour Bayern could claim this season. Last weekend, Bayern managed to win their fifth straight title, their tenth in a row.
They secured the three points against their direct pursuers with a 3:1 win at the Allianz Arena against Borussia Dortmund. Serge Gnabry opened the scoring, Robert Lewandowski added a second goal before halftime. Dortmund was down by one goal, but never really came in danger of getting back into the game.
The title was confirmed seven minutes from the end when Jamal Musiala scored. Now the task is to secure the victory with a commanding lead.
Mainz had been in the hunt for a European spot until about a month ago. But now they seem to be finishing the Bundesliga season in mid-table. They have picked up 39 points from the 31 games they have played. Mainz have not picked up a single win in their last five games, which is extremely disappointing.
In this series of games, Mainz has lost three times and drawn twice. They have also lost three of their last four games in the Bundesliga. The third defeat in this period they conceded last Friday, when they went down 5-0 away to Wolfsburg.
Mainz vs Bayern Munich H2H
Bayern has won eight of the last nine meetings between the two teams. That includes three wins from four away games against Mainz. However, Mainz won this game last season when they beat Bayern 2-1 in April.
Mainz vs Bayern Munich Prediction
This should be an entertaining match in the Bundesliga with very little at stake for either team. However, it’s easy to imagine Bayern outclassing their rivals, and it could be a big win for the recently crowned German champions. We could imagine a 3:0 victory for Bayern.
