Bundesliga title favorites Bayern Munich will take on relegation-battling FSV Mainz in the league on Saturday.

The Bavarians will hope to collect all three points to seal the German title.

Bayern Munich extended their lead at the top of the table to 10 points after beating Bayer Leverkusen. They were given a helping hand by Koln, who beat Leipzig in what was an upset.

Mainz also won their last game against fellow strugglers Werder Bremen, and the victory will help them in the coming weeks as the battle to survive heats up.

With just four more games remaining, Bayern can seal the title with one win from their remaining games. Mainz, on the other hand, still have a lot to play for as they aren’t safe.

Mainz vs Bayern Munich Head-to-head

Mainz are in a fantastic run of form that has pushed them up to 13th in the league table. However, a clash against Bayern Munich always has its challenges.

The Bavarians have a good record in this fixture, having won it 22 times. Mainz have managed just four wins, while three games have ended in draws.
