Mainz play host to runaway Bundesliga leaders Bayern Munich in Friday night football. Bayern Munich have been simply sensational of late in the Bundesliga. Arjen Robben has been on fire with six goals in his last six Bundesliga games and his all round play showing why he is one of the best players on the planet. With Robben , Ribery, Muller and Lewandowski at his disposal Pep Guardiola can realistically be thinking about winning everything this season, although Bayern's defence do need to take alot of credit conceding just one goal in their last fourteen Bundesliga games is a ridiculous statistic.
Mainz have really struggled to win games this season as scoring goals has proven to be a real problem. Okazaki up front has managed eight in twelve but that is almost half of all the goals Mainz have scored this season(18) and really the club need more from the rest of the squad. Mainz though while struggling to win games have still be very difficult to beat with only four losses this season and only one at home. The problem has been converting draws into wins, as Mainz have nine draws this year. Most in the league by a long way. There is some good yuoung players in this Mainz side with Hoffman, Geiss, Duricic and they have a very well organised defence and a great young keeper in Karius. Mainz will be tough to break down and shoulf provide a stern test for Bayern on Friday night.
In seven home games this year Mainz have trailed in zero at half time and I like Mainz on the half time handicap. Take Mainz +0.5 on the handicap and Follow me on twitter@antonpippo
