FC Bayern travel to face 1. FSV Mainz 05 this coming Saturday (kick-off 15.30 CEST) on Bundesliga Matchday 32. After the 3-1 victory in the title decider against Borussia Dortmund last weekend, our Munich stars have more targets to aim at for the rest of the season - among them two new potential goalscoring records. Read on for more info about these targets and other facts and figures for the match in Mainz.

1. Good record against Mainz

FCB won the reverse fixture against Mainz 2-1, having been a goal down at half-time.

FC Bayern have won eight of the last nine matches in the Bundesliga against Mainz. But beware: FCB lost the last away game in Mainz in April 2021 by a 2-1 scoreline. In spite of that, Bayern’s winning record against the 05ers is the highest, at 73% (11 out of 15 matches played), of any team in the Bundesliga against whom they’ve played at least five away matches.

2. First goalscoring record in sight

Bayern extended their goal tally for the season from 89 to 92 against BVB.

FC Bayern have already scored 92 goals this Bundesliga season. That equals the record after 31 matchdays, which was posted by Bayern themselves in 2019/20. It's only nine goals to go for FCB to match the all-time goalscoring record in a full season of 101 (set by Bayern in 1971/72).

3. Second goalscoring record in sight

If Bayern score in Mainz, it will be their 47th away goal this season. This will equal the Bundesliga record for away goals scored in a single season (also Bayern in 2019/20).

4. Gnabry’s personal record

Serge Gnabry scored a spectacular volley against BVB.

Serge Gnabry scored his 13th goal of the season against Borussia Dortmund last Saturday and set a new personal best in a single Bundesliga season.

5. Pressing machines coming together

Bayern und Mainz average the most pressing sequences in Bundesliga games this season. FCB do so 20 times per game, Mainz 18.

Both teams have also managed seven goals after winning back possession high up the field. Only Union Berlin have more (8).
