Impressive run against Mainz
FC Bayern have won 12 of their last 13 Bundesliga matches, more than any other side in this period. The recent record against Mainz is impressive too: the German record champions have gone unbeaten in 13 of the last 14 Bundesliga encounters with the men from Rhineland-Palatinate, winning 11 and drawing two. The only time Mainz left the pitch as winners was on 2 March 2016, a 2-1 reverse. fcbayern.com has delved into the facts and stats in the build-up to the match.
Strong home streak
FC Bayern are the Bundesliga's best away side on 30 points, and the recent record in Bundesliga home matches is positive too. Niko Kovac' men have won all of their last six league matches on home soil. The Munich men have not conceded a goal at the Allianz Arena in 245 Bundesliga minutes, advancing to second place in the home table.
Mainz' bogey team
Mainz' yield away to FC Bayern is poor. The Zerofivers have lost 18 of the 25 Bundesliga encounters, winning four and drawing three, conceding 64 goals along the way. FSV have lost more matches and conceded more goals against Bayern than against any other Bundesliga team.
Only one victory against leaders
Mainz' record against the teams topping the table could do with a polish. They have only won one of the last 12 matches against the league leaders, losing ten und drawing one. But beware: Mainz's only success was against Bayern in March 2016.
