Betting Tip: Back Bayern Munich to see off Mainz this week in the Bundesliga.

Mainz will this Friday play host to Bayern Munich in the German Bundesliga, and it’s the visitors who are tipped to secure all three points.

A home win for Mainz is doubted at 9/1 with bet365 this week, while an away win for Bayern is tipped at 3/10. A draw between the two teams is 9/2.

Mainz enter the fray this week looking to bring their two-game winless streak to an end, having draw 1-1 with St Etienne in the Europa League and lost 2-1 to Hertha Berlin in the Bundesliga of late. Mainz’s dip in form explains why they now lie eighth in the league table having been in the top five for much of this season – somewhere they can return to via a win this Friday. In Mainz’s favour ahead of this week’s game is their league form at the Opel Arena; Mainz have won their last three on the bounce on front of a home crowd, and a fourth win this week would mark their biggest of the season yet. Looking to make that happen is lead striker Pablo De Blasis. The Argentine has scored four times this season and is 13/2 to score on Friday with bet365.

Bayern Munich on the other hand have suffered a rare dip-in-form of late, with the club losing two of their last four games and winning just two of their last five. Such form has seen them replaced at the top of Bundesliga by Leipzig, of whom they now trail by three points. Anything less than first just wont do for Bayern, though, and Carlo Ancelotti will be expecting nothing short of a win this weekend, one in the same guise as last weekend’s well-taken 2-1 win over Bayer Leverkusen. Set to lead the line for Bayern is striker Robert Lewandowski, who this week is the 1/2 favourite to score his eighth goal of the season with bet365. Elsewhere, Thomas Muller is 10/11 to get on the scoresheet.

Tip

Back Bayern to win 2-0 this week at 11/2 with bet365.

A safer bet lies with the visitors to win to nil at 11/10.
