Preliminary report on 1. FSV Mainz 05 against FC Bayern
Munich – With the 3:1 in the home game against Borussia Dortmund a week ago he FC Bayern not only made the Bundesliga championship perfect again, but also made history. Because never before has a club won the title ten times in a row in a top European league.
In the days since then, the focus has been on Robert Lewandowski’s future. Despite a contract until 2023, he should not be averse to breaking up his tent in Munich. During the week there was a meeting between his advisor Pini Zahavi and the Bayern bosses Oliver Kahn and Hasan Salihamidzic, but things didn’t calm down afterwards.
Coach Julian Nagelsmann unsurprisingly quickly wishes for clarity in what is possibly the most important personnel within the team. Meanwhile, they also mix Ex-Dortmunder Roman Weidenfeller and Ex-Bayern professional Javi Martinez and keep the topic alive.

FC Bayern in Mainz: Müller and Tolisso are missing Nagelsmann
In Mainz, FC Bayern must without Thomas Müller, who fails with a cold. The game comes too early for Corentin Tolisso and Bouna Sarr. The hosts are missing Jeremiah St. Juste and Jae-Sung Lee. The Rheinhessen have a lot to make up for with their fans, most recently it was a 0:5 at VfL Wolfsburg, in five games only two points.
FC Bayern won the first leg 2-1 after falling behind, Kingsley Coman and Jamal Musiala scored. Karim Onisiwo was successful for Mainz. Although the record champions lost 2-1 in their most recent appearance at FSV, before that there were eight wins in a row in Mainz. (mg)
