Mainz vs Bayern Munich build-up, previous line-ups & injury news:
After spending most of the season in the bottom two, Mainz have done brilliantly to drag themselves up to 13th place. Bo Svensson’s side have lost just two of their last 12 Bundesliga matches, picking up 24 points during that time after taking just seven points from their first 17 games. Mainz can’t rest on their laurels just yet with only five points still separating them from the relegation zone, but another win from their final five games should see them safe.
Despite having some defensive misgivings throughout 2020/21, Bayern are once again on the cusp of sealing the Bundesliga title. RB Leipzig’s shock defeat to FC Köln leaves the Bavarians 10 points clear at the top of the table with just four games remaining and a win here would confirm their status as German champions for a ninth straight season, regardless of results elsewhere. Even if Bayern fail to win, things could be settled if Leipzig lose to Stuttgart on Sunday.
- Mainz (vs Werder Bremen): Zentner; St. Juste, Bell, Niakhate; Brosinski, Barreiro, Kohr, Boetius, Mwene; Szalai, Onisiwo.
- Bayern Munich (vs Leverkusen): Neuer; Pavard, Boateng, Hernandez, Davies; Kimmich, Alaba; Coman, Muller, Musiala; Choupo-Moting.
Mainz will be without defender Luca Kilian, who has picked up a thigh injury. Svensson has an otherwise fully fit squad to choose from.
The big news for Bayern is that Robert Lewandowski has recovered from his knee injury and looks set to return to the starting XI. Leon Goretzka could also make a comeback. But the Bavarians will remain without Douglas Costa, Corentin Tolisso, Niklas Sule and Marc Roca, while Serge Gnabry and Tanguy Nianzou are doubts.

Can Lewandowski break Gerd Muller’s record?
Prior to the knee injury which has kept him sidelined since late March, Robert Lewandowski embarked on another truly ridiculous goalscoring run, finding the net in 10 consecutive games for club and country, totalling 16 strikes during that time. 11 of those goals came in the Bundesliga, extending his tally to 35 for the season, just five short of Gerd Muller’s long-standing competition record for a single season.
If this was any other striker, you’d be tempted to say that record is now out of reach with just four games to go. But Lewandowski is no ordinary striker and his goalscoring rate over the past two years has been nothing short of superhuman. Furthermore, this is a player who managed five goals in just eight minutes and 59 seconds from the bench against Wolfsburg back in 2015/16. As Hansi Flick put it earlier this season, “If someone can do it, it’s him.”
The Poland international will be hellbent on finding the six goals required to upgrade his legendary status to immortality, not that anyone can question his standing in the game anyway. Luckily for Lewandowski, he begins his comeback against a Mainz side who lost 5-2 to Bayern earlier this season, with the 32-year-old hitting the net twice that day. Across 20 career appearances against Die Nullfünfer, Lewandowski has 17 wins, two draws and just one defeat, and an extraordinary 18 goals to his name.
