Ahead of a two-week break that’ll see the team get some much-needed rest, Bayern Munich travel to Mainz to take on Bo Svensson’s resurgent side. Hansi Flick needs just three more points confirm the seventh major title of his short career, while Robert Lewandowski needs another six goals to break Gerd Muller’s all-time Bundesliga scoring record.
Those are the main storylines for this game, but a few mini-narratives also abound. Leroy Sane has been short of confidence since the PSg game, and it remains to be seen if Hansi can get him out of his funk. Jamal Musiala has been on fire lately, so he may make a third consecutive appearance on the starting XI. Meanwhile, Bayern welcome back Serge Gnabry and Leon Goretzka to the squad — their return bolsters a heavily depleted team.
