Our prediction for this Bundesliga match:
Mainz and Bayern Munich face each other at Mewa Arena in the closing match of Saturday’s program. Mainz are eager to record their first win of the season and we are positive that they will fight tooth and nail against the reigning champions. Morocco international Aymen Barkok is pushing for a start after scoring as a substitute in a 2-2 draw with Borussia M’gladbach, while the likes of Karim Onisiwo, Phillipp Mwene, Nelson Weiper, Maxim Leitsch, Andreas Hanche-Olsen, and Jonathan Burkardt continue to miss out with injuries.
The Bavarians, on the other hand, faced no difficulties in a 3-0 win over Freiburg before the international break. As Bayern Munich are eager to get their revenge on Mainz for a 3-1 loss at Mewa Arena from the last season, we believe that punters from all around the globe can find value in betting on the title hopefuls. Keep in mind, though, that all Manuel Neuer, Matthijs de Ligt, Serge Gnabry, Eric Choupo-Moting, and Raphael Guerreiro are sidelined with injuries, while important midfielder Joshua Kimmich is a major doubt.
