Diving into the stats, it's clear that both teams are at polar ends of their form this season. Bayern Munich, undoubtedly the strongest in the Bundesliga, remain unbeaten after seven matches with an astonishing goal difference of +17. Mainz, on the other hand, is experiencing serious problems, having failed to win a single victory in seven matches and having an alarming goal difference of -13.
However, history shows interesting dynamics. The meetings between these teams were unstable. Despite Bayern's overall dominance in the championship, Mainz managed to win two of their last five matches against Bayern. This suggests that Mainz may have a strategy that periodically frustrates Bayern.
In terms of additional indicators, Mainz generally have less possession of the ball than their opponents, but often have the same number of shots on goal. This suggests that Mainz play a more counter-attacking style. Bayern have a high level of ball possession, which indicates their control and dictation of the tempo of the game.
Both teams have shown a tendency to score a lot of goals this season. Bayern Munich have an outstanding attack, scoring an average of 4.1 goals per game. Mainz, despite its problems, still managed to find its footing and finished most of its matches with a total number of goals of more than 3.5. Given the vulnerability of Mainz's defense and Bayern's attacking prowess, this game is likely to see at least 4 goals scored. However, football is unpredictable, so this bet is associated with medium risk.
Bayern's attacking power is evident in recent matches, scoring an average of 4.1 goals per game. Mainz's defense is faltering, conceding an average of almost 3 goals per game, which doesn't bode well for them against an attacking giant like Bayern. Bayern's current form and Mainz's problems make the Bavarians clear favorites.
