For long phases of the season, it looked as if Bayern Munich had to give preference to another team after seven championships in a row. After RB Leipzig’s recent mistake in Frankfurt, the tide has now turned again.
Mainz vs Bayern Free Betting Tips
Should Hansi Flick’s team land an away win in the Opel Arena in Mainz, the Reds would return to first place in the current table, at least until the evening game, before the Red Bulls could add more.
At Mainz against Bayern, the bookmakers’ odds are clearly towards the German record champions, who are currently running properly. FCB have won the last five league games. Previously, in a mixed season of 2019/20, it had never been enough for more than two victories in a row.
In fact, the Reds have now even set an old record. Two wins and 9-0 goals at the start of the second half of the season have so far only succeeded once for VfB Stuttgart in the 1990/91 season. A momentum that of course significantly influences the forecast against Mainz against Bayern.
We see a lot of potential in betting on a high win again, which is why we allude to Tip 2 against Bayern with an Asian handicap of -2.5 at Mainz. After all, the FCB have already been in a clean slate seven times and have scored no less than 55 goals in the season so far, which Munich have only succeeded in in the 1973/74 season.
Mainz – Statistics & current form
When FSV Mainz 05 introduced Achim Beierlorzer as the successor to Sandro Schwarz in November 2019, the hope of better days returned to the break at least for a short time. A 5-1 win in Hoffenheim was followed by a 2-1 win over Eintracht Frankfurt. The shape curve then went up again.
But then there was a complete slump: The Red and Whites lost five of the subsequent six league games. Only in the basement duel at SV Werder Bremen did the zero-five achieve a brief liberation.
With this desolate yield, the Rhineland-Palatinate have long since returned to the descent swamp. The FSV occupies 15th place in the current Bundesliga table and is only one point ahead of the relegation place.
The biggest shortcoming so far was the desolate defensive, which had to accept a total of 44 goals. Together with Bremen, this is the worst value of the entire top floor of German football. And because it rarely rang in the opponents’ goals in the game, this flood of goals resulted in 13 defeats in league operations.
Neither the bottom of Fortuna Dusseldorf nor the relegation-threatened Paderborn has lost as often as the Mainz team, which are only because the remaining six games did not result in a single draw, but all of these games ended in threes.
In Mainz against Bayern, a bet on the seventh three would be as presumptuous as the bet on the division of points. After all, the zero five bring a bad home record. The Beierlorzer squad scored only nine out of 27 possible points in the Opel Arena, where there was nothing to be won against FC Bayern Munich for several years.
With a goal difference of 3:17, the FSV lost the last seven home games in the Bundesliga against the German record champions. A series of defeats that the 05ers have never had to accept against any other first division team…

Bayern – Statistics & current form
FC Bayern Munich is back in the race for the championship title. After the 29-time German champion had to make do with seventh place in the table, this is undoubtedly news that would have been expected at Säbener Straße by the end of the season, but certainly not at the end of January.
In fact, the deficit of first round champion RB Leipzig is only a single point, which is thanks to three factors. Firstly, the danger of scoring from superstar Robert Lewandowski, who has already played an incredible 21 times in the top floor of German football this season, but is preloaded with yellow in the away game to Mainz.
Secondly, it is the fact that for the first time in the current season more than two games in a row could be won and a genuine series resulted from it – FCB currently has five wins in a row.
And thirdly, it is the resurrected defensive, which has been severely weakened in the meantime, but is now as usual again. The Reds have played zero seven times this season – most recently three times in a row.
With this, the German record champions are well prepared not only for this important away game in Rhineland-Palatinate, but also for the pioneering English Week, which will be followed by the selection of Hansi Flick.
Only on Wednesday evening TSG Hoffenheim made a guest appearance in the round of 16 of the DFB Pokal in the Munich Arena and then the reigning champion asks the reigning autumn champions and league leaders to dance at home on Sunday evening if they beat RB Leipzig on 9 February 2019.
Two games in which two decisive steps can be taken towards reaching the season goals. If the Reds win both games with their own fans behind them, they would definitely be in the cup under the last eight teams and would have regained the lead in the top floor of German football. That, in turn, would give the upcoming duel in the round of 16 of the Champions League with Chelsea FC additional confidence.
Before that, however, it is important to expand the away series in the Opel Arena, where seven wins in a row have recently been achieved. In general, 2019 was a good year for the Reds against Mainz. In both home games in the Allianz Arena, FCB gave the FSV six goals each, which is why the odds for a win by Munich with three goals difference are extremely good in Mainz against Bayern.
Nevertheless, the great difficulty is not to underestimate the Mainz. After all, the groundbreaking home game against RB Leipzig is already casting its shadow in which players like Jérôme Boateng and Robert Lewandowski – both currently with four yellow cards – naturally want to play an active part and do not want to sit locked in the stands.
It is all the more important that these thoughts do not lead to a mental drop of a few percentage points, although the German record champion under Hansi Flick has not even begun to suggest such tendencies. That also gives a lot of courage for the Munich winning streak to grow to six games.
Best goal scorers in the league:
🏆 Robert Lewandowski (21 goals)
🏆 Serge Gnabry (7 goals)
Probable lineup of Bayern:
➠ Neuer – Davies – Alaba – Boateng – Pavard – Kimmich – Thiago – Goretzka – Perisic – Müller – Lewandowski
Last games from Bayern:
⚽️ 01/25/2020 – Bayern vs. Schalke 5-0 (Bundesliga)

Mainz vs Bayern Direct comparison & statistics highlights
Head to head: 20 – 3 – 4
In the Bundesliga alone, both teams have faced each other 27 times so far. The fact that FC Bayern Munich won 20 of these games shows deeply. With just three draws, there are only four victories for Mainz, who have not lost so often against any other first division team and who conceded so many goals in the top tier of German football – 76 in total.
It will also be particularly critical if the German record champions take the lead. In all 20 games in which this was the case, the Reds eventually won the game. In the first leg, Bayern went 6-0 at home, winning the last five Bundesliga games against the Rhineland-Palatinate.
Mainz vs Bayern Free Betting Tips
At Mainz against Bayern the prediction is strongly influenced by the momentum of both teams. While the zero-five have lost five of the last six league games, there are five wins in a row for Munich.
Several aspects also indicate that this game could become clear in the Opel Arena. The German record champions scored twelve goals against the Rhineland-Palatinate in the last two duels in 2019 alone, which are more vulnerable to standards than any other team.
The bell rang 14 times for a stationary ball in Robin Zentner’s box. Even a disciplined defense could hardly be enough to win against Munich’s strong standards. And as soon as Bayern lead against Mainz, they have never lost before.
Key facts – Mainz vs Bayern tip
💡 Bayern clearly won the first leg 6-0
💡 Mainz has already lost 13 league games and conceded 44 goals
💡 Bayern have all won the last five games
So there is absolutely no alternative to playing Tip 2 at Mainz against Bayern, which is accompanied by very low odds. The bet has to be boosted accordingly, for which we think the Asian handicap is the most promising. The -2.5 that we set looks crisp at first, but is useful for the zero five-man.
After all, Mainz played in only one of the 20 competitive games of the current season to zero and with 44 goals conceded the shooting gallery of the Bundesliga. For the Rhineland-Palatinate to lose with at least three goals difference against the Reds, there are odds of up to 2.20 available at Mainz against Bayern, which we allude to with four units.
Bet Tip: Handicap: victory away -2.5
Stake: 4/10 units
