Mainz vs. Bayern Munich Betting Picks & Predictions for October 21

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.

There are three teams still waiting for their first Bundesliga win of the season, including Mainz. It’s been a terrible start to the campaign for Mainz and we don’t expect them to bounce back against the reigning champs.

Bayern Munich Can’t Afford To Drop Points

The defending champions, Bayern were perfect after three games before drawing against Bayer Leverkusen, who lead the Bundesliga. They are two points behind the leaders but they are still unbeaten.

Harry Kane has backed up the hype since his move to Bayern Munich from the English Premier League. It was such an awesome start for Kane in Bavaria that he quickly became the first Bayern player to score seven times in his first five games for the Bundesliga giants.

He remains the player to watch and include in your Bundesliga player props this weekend in Bundesliga. But alongside Kane’s goals have been assists, five of them, across all competitions. And every single one of those has been for Leroy Sane. It is a symbiotic relationship on and off the field.

The Bavarian giants owe Mainz one after their draw with Borussia Dortmund helped the title stay in Munich for another year on the final day of last season.

Winless Mainz Versus Unbeaten Bayern Munich

Mainz’s current 12-game winless Bundesliga run is their longest since a period of 16 games under Jurgen Klopp in 2006/07. All six of Mainz’s league goals this season have been scored by different players and one of those players. Kane is averaging a goal every 76 minutes in the Bundesliga.

We’ve seen at least three goals scored in each of the previous 11 mutual encounters between the teams across all competitions. Mainz’s latest Bundesliga victory is a 3-1 win against Bayern Munich back in April.
