After a shaky start to the season, Julian Nagelsmann’s team is currently unbeaten in their past four league games, with three victories. Bayern has scored at least two goals in each of its four Bundesliga games, regaining something resembling its lethal best in front of goal.
They’ve also held clean sheets in three of their last four Bundesliga games.
Bo Svensson’s team is having a good season in the Bundesliga, and a win would bring them within a point of Bayern. The visitors are unbeaten in three league games and have won two straight league games without conceding a goal. Mainz have been a formidable opponent on the road in the German top tier recently, winning five of their last seven away games.
Bayern Munich will be without Lucas Hernandez, Leroy Sane, and Bouna Sarr due to injuries, with the trio unlikely to play for the club before the World Cup next month.
Thomas Muller, Kingsley Coman, and Benjamin Pavard, who scored in injury time against Camp Nou, might all be called up to Nagelsmann’s starting lineup.
Meanwhile, Mainz will be missing Maxim Leitsch and Marlon Mustapha due to exhaustion and a thigh issue, respectively, but Svensson appears to have an entire squad to choose from.
Club captain Silvan Widmer returned from injury on the bench during their 5-0 demolition of Koln, and he might replace Danny da Costa at right wing-back as a more natural defender.
Bayern Munich Bundesliga form:

Bayern Munich possible starting lineup:

Mainz 05 possible starting lineup:
Zentner; Fernandes, Hack, Caci; Widmer, Kohr, Stach, Aaron; Lee; Ingvartsen, Onisiwo
Bayern Munich 3-1 Mainz 05
Despite Mainz’s recent good form, Bayern has much too much quality for them.
Since the international break, the Bavarians have won seven of their previous eight matches in all competitions. They will be eager to return to the top of the Bundesliga and put major pressure on Union Berlin.
