Great hit by the Austrian, but it's a good height for Zentner. Solid save.

CONSOLATION GOAL

Unnecessary goal to concede as Ulreich's poor pass is picked off by Burgzorg. He back-heels to Ingvartsen, who curls home his fourth goal in as many league games from just inside the box.

TEL!

Tel's straight into the thick of things, hitting a shotting into the turf that Zentner does well to push to safety. What an introduction that would have been. Great effort by Mane today, by the way. A goal and two assists.

MANE!

Mane runs in off the left, leaving Edimilson Fernandes in his wake, before sending a swerving strike wide of the far post. Zentner perhaps had it covered...
53'

POST!

Bayern are desperately unluckly not to have a fourth goal. Choupo-Moting beats Zentner to Mazraoui's low cross, but his shot from a tight angle hits the foot of the left-hand post. Goretzka then fires at the Mainz goalkeeper from range.
51'

MANE AGAIN!

Same drill, but again his strike - a low drive - whistles wide. Bayern are purring...

DANGER!

Mainz concede possession in dangerous territory. Musiala pounces and finds Gnabry, whose goal-bound shot from 12 yards is blocked by Hack.

DE LIGT INJURY

De Ligt picked up a knock towards the end of the first half. Pavard's on in his stead. The Frenchman has made a few cameos at centre-back of late - his preferred defensive role.

WHAT A GOAL!

Musiala strikes again! Davies flicks a pass along the edge of the box into the feet of the Bayern teen, who rolls it on to Choupo-Moting. He holds off three Mainz shirts, before returning a pass to Musiala for an eye-of-the-needle finish into the bottom corner. Seven Bundesliga goals for the season for the 19-year-old Wunderkind!

BURKARDT!

Burkardt rolls Kimmich and arrows a shot on the turn wide of the far post, pretty much out of nothing. He's gone nine Bundesliga matches without a goal since scoring in a 3-1 home win over Bayern on Matchday 32 of last season - one of three strikes in five career meetings with the record champions.

KNOCKING AT THE DOOR

BAYERN LEAD!

Mainz are carved open as Goretzka shifts a pass inside for Gnabry. Choupo-Moting gets involved, before Gnabry shifts it out to Mane and continues his run into the box. Mane slides the ball towards the penalty spot, where Gnabry is able to control and fire through a ruck of white shirts to cap a wonderful team goal.

SIDE NETTING!

Brilliant from Musiala on the edge of the area. The teen wriggles clear and finds Choupo-Moting in the box. He could shoot, but has the smarts to lay the ball off for Gnabry. His cross finds Mane, who sends a side-footed volley into the side netting. First warning for Mainz!

RED SWARM

Bayern are hogging possession. Mainz are camped deep in their own half, no doubt awaiting a breakaway opportunity. That'll be why Burkardt's started over Ingvarsten today.

WE'RE OFF!

Mainz get the ball rolling, dressed in all white. Big test for Svensson's side - perhaps the biggest in football.
Kick-off!

THE STAGE IS SET

It's a full house, as ever, at the Allianz Arena. Bayern can go top, but Mainz will be no pushover - they're only four points further back and have taken 12 of their 18 points on the road...

BAYERN TEAM NEWS

It's as you were for Bayern, who go with the same starting XI that began the 3-0 midweek thumping of Barcelona.

MAINZ TEAM NEWS

Captain Silvan Widmer is back to full fitness and into the starting XI today. Last year's top scorer, Jonathan Burkardt, also makes a welcome return to the starting line-up, as does Leandro Barreiro.

EXCITING TIMES

Bayern may dominate the overall head-to-head win, draw, loss stats between these teams, however, Mainz defeated the reigning champions back at their place the last two times they faced today's hosts. "We'll try but it's extremely tough, we know that," visiting coach Bo Svensson said of today's task. "But if you don't get excited about this game, you're in the wrong place," he added.

BAYERN'S "GOOD FLOW"

Fresh from that impressive Champions League victory against Barcelona at the Camp Nou, Bayern Munich coach Julian Nagelsmann said his side were in "good flow," and "have a good togetherness," as they get set to face Mainz. "I'm very impressed by [my] team," the Bayern tactician added. "I'm sure we'll have a good mood and mentality on the pitch."

BAYERN ON A MISSION

"We want to restore order at the top of the Bundesliga," warned Bayern Munich midfielder Leon Goretzka a fortnight ago, when Bayern were outside the top four. Fast forward to back-to-back wins over Freiburg and Hoffenheim, and the record champions are right back in the groove. If they beat Mainz at the Allianz Arena, Julian Nagelsmann's side will return to the top of the Bundesliga for the first time since Matchday 4.
