Mainz team news
There are no fewer than four players certainly ruled out for Mainz this weekend. Delano Burgzorg (heart), Lee Jae-sung (knee), Jerry St. Juste (shoulder) are dealing with various ailments while Niklas Tauer is suspended. Head coach Bo Svensson will be looking to Jonathan Burkardt to cause some damage.
Burkardt has been involved directly in goals in his last three Bundesliga games against FC Bayern (2 goals ,1 assist) – among all current Bundesliga players, no other player currently has such a long run of games with goal involvements against Munich.
On top of that, Robert Lewandowski (14.4 xG) and Burkardt (6.9 xG) are the two players with the highest expected goals value in the second half of the season. However, while Lewandowski almost equalled his xG total (14 goals), Burkardt undercut his xG output by almost four goals (-3.9, 3 goals), more than any other player in 2022.
Bayern Munich team news
Heading into this latest round of Bundesliga fixtures champions Bayern, who are on a four-match away unbeaten streak (three wins and one draw), still must do without Corentin Tolisso; the French international continues to recover from a hamstring injury. Elsewhere there’s doubts over the availability of Kingsley Coman (ankle) and Bouna Sarr (knee) with both dealing with respective knocks.
The last time Bayern were defeated away was February 12 against Bochum. Nagelsmann is expected to start Serge Gnabry, the forward registered 13th goal of the season against Borussia Dortmund, setting a new personal best within a single Bundesliga season. For the first time since October, he scored in two Bundesliga games in a row – only once has he had a longer scoring run for Bayern (three matches in February 2020).
