Mainz vs. Bayern Munich live stream: Start time, TV schedule and how to watch Bundesliga online

Bayern Munich look to build upon Tuesday's big win over Wolfsburg with a trip to Mainz.

How will Bayern Munich go about the match immediately following Robert Lewandowski's stunningly amazing performance against Wolfsburg? They'll travel to Mainz to take on a club that's evenly split their games to date this season.

Away at Mainz is always going to be a tough match for FC Bayern. The Bavarians haven't lost there recently, but the matches have always been a close fight. With this match sandwiched in between a match against Wolfsburg and a Champions League contest against Dinamo Zagreb, the match is set up perfectly as a "trap game".

Repeating the fact that Robert Lewandowski scored five goals in nine minutes on Tuesday will never get old, but what kind of performance should one expect against Mainz? Pep Guardiola will be monitoring Lewandowski's minutes in these upcoming fixtures, as Bayern will play Borussia Dortmund in a massive Bundesliga fixture a week from Sunday.

The most underrated and overlooked aspect of Bayern's big win midweek against Wolfsburg was the return of Javi Martinez to the field. The Spaniard was a key cog when Bayern won the triple several years ago, and he's been unquestionably the biggest missing piece to Guardiola's team. Injuries aren't fun.

Once the lineups are released, this thread will be updated.
