Following RB Leipzig’s setback against Borussia Monchengladbach at home, Bayern Munich is the new leader of the German Bundesliga. The Bavarian side got back to the highest spot in the table this Saturday, after their 3-1 win over Mainz 05, away from home, in the 20th matchday of the German League.
The sixth consecutive victory at the League led Bayern to 42 points, one more than RB Leipzig, who stumbled once again in the league in a 2-2 draw at home against 4th-placed Borussia Monchengladbach. Third-place in the standings, Borussia Dortmund is only one point behind the Red Bull team.
We all know that to play away from home is not exactly a problem for Bayern Munich. Actually, there are a lot of fans who support the theory that the Bavarian side feels more comfortable playing away than at the Allianz Arena.
We could confirm it, as it took them half of the first half to wrap the game up at Mainz. Their first goal happened on seven minutes through Pole Robert Lewandowski.
Frenchman Benjamin Pavard whipped a delivery who met Lewandowski’s head, as the Polish striker nodded firmly to the back of the net. 0-1 Bayern.
Thomas Muller made it two on 13 minutes, as Thiago Alcantara, in the 25th minute, scored the third, as he was picked out inside the box, dribbled past a defender and struck a powerful effort into the back of the net. 0-3 Bayern Munich.
Then, the Bavarians kinda relaxed and started giving spaces for Mainz, who discounted by the end of the first half, through Jeremiah St. Juste, on 45 minutes.
After half-time, Bayern Munich only administrated the 3-1 advantage until the end of the game.
So after winning the German Bundesliga Seven seasons in a row, the Bavarians still want more. Will someone be able to stop them?
