Mainz put a cat among the Bundesliga pigeons in midweek by becoming the first side to beat FC Bayern München at the Allianz Arena this term. That win not only opened the title race up, but boosted Mainz's own hopes of qualifying for Europe next season by strengthening their grip on a place inside the top six.
Darmstadt's defeat at home to Borussia Dortmund provided the other midweek talking point in the context of the title race, but their coach Dirk Schuster had little to smile about with his side sliding towards the bottom three.
