Bayern Munich predicted the line-up against Mainz 05


Table-top Bayern Munich welcomes Mainz 05 to the Allianz Arena for a meeting between two of the Bundesliga’s seven best on Saturday afternoon.

With the support of successive victories over Borussia Dortmund and Barcelona, ​​Bayern are in rich form. But given the lack of elite depth at Julian Nagelsmann’s disposal, Mainz could face a largely unchanged XI playing its third game in seven days.

Still, here’s the familiar line-up Nagelsmann can once again turn to this weekend.

In his element ⛔ # BVBFCB @Manuel_Neuer

Manuel Neuer (GK) – Only Hertha Berlin’s besieged Alexander Schwolow has a greater negative discrepancy between actual and expected – given the accuracy of the efforts that fly his way – conceded goals than Bayern’s underperforming number one this season (per Opta).

Benjamin Pavard (RB) – Bayern Munich’s World Cup winner took football’s ultimate prize after never losing a match for his national team, and went undefeated in 31 matches for France from their U-19 to senior team.

Dayot Upamecano (CB) – There have been few opportunities to question Upamecano’s defensive qualities since he followed Nagelsmann to Bayern, but the midfielder can also boast four assists in the Bundesliga – a result that only Thomas Muller can do better in Bayern’s squad.

Lucas Hernandez (CB) – If he can shake off an ankle injury that was not as serious as first feared, Hernandez can make his 12th straight Bundesliga start on Saturday – his longest previous run was five.

Alphonso Davies (LB) – The Bundesliga’s most productive and progressive ball carrier has not only the most runs into the final third and penalty area, but also the most nutmegs in Germany’s top class (eight, per FBref).

Corentin Tolisso (CM) – With the match decided a long time ago, Nagelsmann eloquently removed one fully fit, senior midfielder at his disposal one hour into Barcelona’s Champions League submission.

Jamal Musiala (CM) – While midfield pairing Joshua Kimmich and Leon Goretzka have been tipped to lead the next generation of Bayern dominance, Musiala may well provide further proof of his own future significance if he fills in the dubious duo on Saturday.

Thomas Muller (AM) – Bayern’s unbeatable and constantly improving 32-year-old has directly contributed to six goals during his last five meetings with Mainz.

Kingsley Coman (RW) – After accumulating a career-high ten Bundesliga assists last season (as many as he recorded during the previous three campaigns), Coman has obviously shifted his focus to scoring goals; take almost twice as many shots and create less than half as many chances.

Robert Lewandowski (ST) – This year’s official striker has surpassed a third of the Bundesliga’s clubs so far this season.

Leroy Sane (LW) – To double-digit goals and assists over all competitions already this season (with a symmetrically satisfactory figure of ten in each category), Sane has darkened his result from a disappointing debut season of almost 1,000 minutes less.
