Mainz will face Bayern Munich in week 29 of the 2022/2023 German League which can be watched via live streaming on ESPN on Saturday, April 22 2023, ET.
Mainz will host Bayern Munich at MEWA ARENA on Saturday in a crucial Bundesliga clash that could have implications for both ends of the table. Mainz are still in the hunt for a European spot next season, while Bayern are looking to extend their lead at the top and move closer to the title.
Mainz are in eighth place with 42 points, two points behind sixth-placed Bayer Leverkusen who occupy the last Conference League Qualifier place. They have been in impressive form lately, going unbeaten in their last nine league games. However, they will not be satisfied with their four draws in their last five games and will want to improve under their manager Bo Svensson.
Svensson will face his former mentor, Thomas Tuchel, who is now in charge of Bayern Munich and who coached Svensson at Mainz for five years. Interestingly, Svensson has a better win rate at Mainz (40%) than Tuchel had (38%), and he will try to keep it that way here. He will also take confidence from the fact that he has beaten Bayern twice in his previous two Bundesliga meetings with them as Mainz manager.
Bayern are two points ahead of Borussia Dortmund at the top of the table after a 1-1 draw with Hoffenheim at home in their last league game, extending their unbeaten run to three games. They will be eager to bounce back from their 4-1 aggregate defeat to Manchester City in the UEFA Champions League quarter-finals and focus on securing their ninth consecutive Bundesliga title.
Bayern may not benefit from having only one competition to focus on, as their 59 points after 28 games are their lowest in 11 years. They may also not enjoy playing away from home, as they have won and lost alternately in their last five away league games. They will need to improve their defensive record, as they have conceded 35 goals in the league this season, more than any other team in the top six.
Mainz will rely on their top scorers Marcus Ingvartsen and Karim Onisiwo, who have netted nine goals each this season, as well as Ludovic Ajorque, who has scored five goals in his last seven Mainz appearances. Bayern will hope that Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting can fill the void left by Robert Lewandowski, as he has scored four decisive goals in his last five games for the club.
The last time these two teams met in the league, Bayern Munich thrashed Mainz 6-2 at home in October. Serge Gnabry scored the first goal for Bayern in the fifth minute. Jamal Musiala, Sadio Mané, Leon Goretzka, and Mathys Tel also found the net. Silvan Widmer and Ingvartsen scored for the visitors.
