At 1:00pm Eastern time today, our Bayern Munich FIFA simulation will have its third episode as we close out the month of August with a matchup against 1. FSV Mainz 05.

Bayern comes into this game with a 1-0-1 record, having beaten Hertha Berlin 2-0 in their first matchup of the season thanks to two Thomas Müller goals. However, they fell in their next game, a 1-0 loss to Schalke 04 after midfielder Omar Mascarell was able to get a shot past Manuel Neuer in stoppage time.

This Bayern Munich team currently sits at 7th in the Bundesliga table. Thomas Müller’s two goals see him tied at the top spot in the Bundesliga scoring table with Marco Reus one of the many players joining him. Robert Lewandowski is in the top 3 of the Bundesliga assist table after helping Müller in scoring those two goals.

Tactically, Bayern returns to a more balanced offensive style and continues their high pressing they are used to.
