Friday began the 3rd round of the new season of the German Bundesliga, and Saturday will be a big part of his matches. In one of the 5-and the first “Bayern Munich” on the home field will accept “Mainz”, who last beat them in 2016-m to year.
Last season, the hosts twice defeated guests: first beat them on the road with the score 1:2 and then defeated at home 6:0. To much to keep up with other teams, the Munich team to win.
- Bayern Munich
- Mainz 05
- The coefficients and forecast
No other member of the Bundesliga not made in the previous round is better than Bayern: she defeated Schalke, its longtime rival in the fight for the title, on the road with the score 0:3 is exactly the same result achieved “Wolfsburg” away from “Hertha”. He, by the way, ahead of the defending champion in the standings.
Performance in the 3rd round, Bayern will start from the 6th place in the table as “Borussia Monchengladbach”, she first drew, and then won, but in 2 games he scored 5 goals and conceded 2, while the “Gladbach” achieved goal difference 4:4 for 3 games as he opened the tour on Friday, losing 1:3 in the match against “RB Leipzig”.
But even in case of a victory “Bavaria” catch up “Leipzig”, although it will have a chance to finish the weekend in 2nd place in the table if 4 teams above it lose or with certain conditions will play a draw with their rivals.
In the home match “the Reds” from Munich are the favourites. They have not lost any of their previous 7-and face-to-face meetings with the team from Mainz and won in 4 last games against it, and 15 matches in a row without scored goals.
Although the defending champion has not lost in the last 4 matches in all competitions, he has scored and conceded in 5 of 7 previous games and more than 2 goals were in 6 of those matches involving the Munich group.
Guests started poorly the new season: first, flew out of the German Cup, losing “Kaiserslautern” with the score 2:0 and then conceded in both opening rounds of the 6 goals in total and scored only “Borussia mönchengladbach”.
In the end of the 3rd round “Mainz” will start from the last place in the standings with no points and with the largest negative goal difference. Probably will end up with a larger: in 8 of the last 9 head-to-head with Bayern was at least 3 goals.
Judging by the quotations of the bookmakers, the odds of winning the guests is quite small, so even a goal in their performance estimate coefficients of approximately 2.0. This is the case when the goals of both teams is better not to, because it seems to win despite the relatively low if we take into account the chances of newcomer hand, the coefficients.
The coefficients and forecast
Odds of winning the Munich team is very low, but can be put on the large odds in favor of the “carnavalesca”:
1.07–1.13: victory “Bavaria Munich”;
18-38: victory “Mainz 05”.
In fact, at big odds only remains to hope for. In the previous round, Bayern defeated Schalke and may not repeat the result 6:0. Minimal defeat — what you need.
