Our prediction for this Bundesliga match:
Following a routine 2-0 win over Hoffenheim, Bayern Munich will look to overtake Union Berlin in top position when they face Mainz in the Bundesliga round 12. The Bavarians are eyeing their third consecutive league win, and they are likely to stick to their attacking style of play. All Manuel Neuer, Lucas Hernandez, and Leroy Sane should miss out with injuries for the home team, while summer signing Sadio Mane is widely expected to return to the starting XI.
Die Nullfunfer, on the other hand, proved their worth in back-to-back wins over Werder Bremen and Koln, and they must be high on spirits ahead of the trip to Munich. Anyhow, home win should be considered as Mainz are on a five-game losing run at Allianz Arena. Defender Maxim Leitsch and forward Marlon Mustapha are out of contention with injuries for the visiting team.
