BAYERN STILL GOING FOR MORE
The game is won, but the Bundesliga leaders aren't sitting on what they have. Müller and Lewandowski have had half chances in the last few minutes, with Bayern wanting to extend their goal difference lead over Borussia Dortmund.
DAVIES FEELING CONFIDENT
Having become the youngest Bayern goal scorer since Roque Santa Cruz in 1999 - Davies is 18 years, four months and 15 days old - Davies is briming with confidence. He brings the ball down on the right, cuts inside past a few defenders and shoots at goal. It's blocked well, but he has lost his fear.
STANDING OVATION FOR JAMES
The Allianz Arena rises to applaud the Colombian as he comes off to be replaced by Rafinha. A perfect day at the office for James.
A FIRST GOAL FOR DAVIES!
What a moment for Alphonso Davies as the Canadian scores his first ever goal for Bayern Munich, and first ever in the Bundesliga. Lewandowski's shot forces a save from Müller and the rebound falls to the 18-year-old, who smashes it home into the back of the net.
GOAL!6 : 0
BAYERN IN CRUISE CONTROL
James has taken this game by the scruff of the neck and swept Mainz away, and it returns his side back to the top of the Bundesliga, and now four goals ahead of six goals ahead of Dortmund in terms of goal difference as it stands.
DAVIES TO GET HALF AN HOUR
The Canadian comes on to replace David Alaba and will play a good 30 minutes here in what could be a perfect game for him to score his first ever goal for Bayern.
THAT IS INCREDIBLE FROM JAMES
With only Müller to beat in front of him as he runs into the box, the Colombian chips the ball delicately over the Mainz goalkeeper and signals his one, two, three goals to the adoring Bayern fans.
GOAL!5 : 0
JAMES COMPLETES HIS BRACE
Collecting the ball on the right corner of the box, the Colombian dribbles into the centre and curls an outstanding strike in the far top corner beyond Müller's reach.
GOAL!4 : 0
A change at the break for Mainz as Kunde comes on and into central midfield, replacing winger Boetius.
COMAN FIRES IN A THIRD!
Superb finish from the Frenchman as he latches onto Thiago's through ball, cuts inside past Bell and smashes the ball into the far bottom corner. His third goal of an injury-troubled season.
GOAL!3 : 0
JAMES GETS HIS GOAL
He has been everywhere so far, and he's in the perfect place to score this goal. Kimmich sends in a superb ball into the box on his left foot and it is chested down by Goretzka perfectly into James' for him to coolly slot the ball home past Müller.
GOAL!2 : 0
JAMES CURLS ONE
His magical left foot almost got the perfect amount of curl on that ball to bring it back into the Mainz net, but not to be as it drifted just wide of Müller's goal. Bayern looking good at the moment, confident in their play.
ÖZTUNALI FIRES WIDE
Wonderful footwork from Boetius on the edge of the Bayern box to open up space, before finding Öztunali on the edge of the box. He shoots just wide. But moments later Neuer has a moment of madness in the Bayern goal as his attempted clearance is blocked by a Mainz forward and almost goes into his own net.
MAINZ FINDING THEIR WAY
The visitors are pressing Bayern high up the pitch and winning the ball back as well. Neuer is yet to be tested so far, but half chances are being created, and Müller has also been quiet in the Mainz goal. Bayern need to kick things into another gear.
JAMES FORCES A SAVE
The Colombian takes a shot at goal from all of 25 yards, and forces a difficult save for Müller with the ball moving in the air. The rain is beginning to come down in Munich as well, making it even more difficult for the goalkeepers.
COMAN HITS THE POST
The Frenchman thunderous strike towards the near post of the Mainz goal cannons back out of the upright. Another early scare for the away side, who are struggling to get a foothold in this game.
MÜLLER SAVES FROM LEWY
The Pole is sent in behind with a defender on his back and Müller coming out to close him down, but the Mainz shot-stopper stays big to block his dink away this time.
AND BAYERN LEAD ALREADY!
It's that man Robert Lewandowski with the big goal. Coman and Alaba combine on the left and it's the Austrian who crosses to the near post and Lewandowski flicks the ball towards goal, Müller is out of position, and Bayern lead.
GOAL!1 : 0
UNDERWAY IN MUNICH
Bayern immediately in control of the ball and looking to score early here...
LETS GET THE SHOW ON THE ROAD
Just minutes away from kick-off now as Bayern look to return to the top of the Bundesliga table on goal difference ahead of Dortmund.
By way of contrast, Mainz have not enjoyed the best of times on the road this term. Only five teams have a worse away record than the 05ers' haul of three wins, two draws and seven defeats. They have only found the net 11 times on foreign soil this term, conceding 23.
Bayern will be in confident mood coming into this one given their recent record against Mainz: of the last 14 Bundesliga meetings between the two, the Bavarians have won 11, including the last three. There have been two draws and just one victory for Mainz. Bayern have averaged 2.3 goals per game over that period.
NO MARTINEZ OR GNABRY
Bayern are without two of their key players today, with Sergen Gnabry out due to a cold and Javi Martinez rested as a precaution following a knock on the head.
