Preview: Bayern Munich vs. Mainz 05

Match preview of Bayern Munich's clash with Mainz 05 at the Allianz Arena.

Bayern Munich take on Mainz 05 on Saturday in the Bundesliga looking to keep their place at the top of the league.

The hosts are the only side still unbeaten in the Bundesliga and have won four of their last five.

The visiting Mainz are on a dreadful run of form following a strong start, with a run of four straight defeats ended with a draw at home to Hoffenheim before the international break.

For Bayern Javi Martinez is closing in on a return but this game will come too soon for the player who has yet to restart full training, which means that Philipp Lahm will continue in his anchor role in midfield.

Mainz could welcome Bo Svensson back from injury and he might come into the XI in place of Stefan Bell.
