It has been an inconsistent, fluctuating campaign for Bayern Munich which came to a head in March as Julian Nagelsmann was relieved of his duties — and it concludes this weekend, with the Bavarians teetering on the brink of a second-placed finish for the first time in over a decade.

Thomas Tuchel was parachuted into the hotseat immediately after Nagelsmann’s inexplicable departure and he has struggled to piece together the necessary form to sustain Bayern’s title bid, which culminated in a shock 1-3 loss to RB Leipzig at the weekend — and has handed the initiative to Borussia Dortmund.

Their Der Klassiker rivals simply have win in their final game on Saturday against a Mainz side playing for nothing and the Meisterschale will be heading to the Westfalenstadion. Anything other than maximum reward for the Ruhr Valley club and Bayern will have a chance to steal a march.

Cologne vs Bayern Munich match stats

Serge Gnabry has scored in four consecutive Bundesliga games, a feat he has only previously managed in March/April 2018 when turning out for Hoffenheim. In fact, his total of 14 goals this campaign has equalled his personal best from 2021/22 — while he has also scored more league goals against Cologne than versus any other side in the competition (11).

For Cologne veteran Jonas Hector, this will be his final Bundesliga game for the club, with the 32-year-old set to hang up his boots at the end of the season. Incredibly, this will be the one-club man’s 228th Bundesliga game for The Billy Goats, which is more than any other player since 2000. Unfortunately for him, he remains winless in 11 Bundesliga games against Bayern.
