1. FSV Mainz 05 need not look far for inspiration as they bid to cut FC Bayern München down to size again on Friday evening (kick-off 20:30CET/19:30GMT).
On 2 March, the 05ers threw a spanner in Bayern's works with a stunning 2-1 win at the Allianz Arena. Martin Schmidt masterminded that tactical triumph against the record champions and he will hope to have found the key once again to unlocking the Bayern door after Matchday 12's defeat at Hertha Berlin left his side five points off the top six.
Bayern stalled a run of three games without a win in all competitions by beating Bayer 04 Leverkusen last weekend, but if they are to move back to the Bundesliga summit on Friday night, they know they need an improvement this weekend. Mats Hummels admitted it had not been perfect against Leverkusen, but only the result matters once again this Friday for Carlo Ancelotti's men.
