"I worked very much and now I give full throttle," explains Nanzou in an interview on the website of Bayern.
65’ — The refereeing has been nothing short of horrific today, with so many fouls uncalled for. Bayern players are getting stretched to the limits physically. © Photo by Martin Rose/Getty Images
53’ — Bayern pushing for a goal now. Choupo-Moting and Musiala look very active.
46’ — And the second half kicks off! Musiala, Choupo Moting and Nianzou come in for Goretzka, Coman and Sane.
Halftime observations and analysis
- Bayern, simply put, were toothless up front. Didn’t generate any meaningful chances and lacked the means to break down the Mainz defense.
- Mainz, to their credit, defended admirably well, and also put up a show whenever required to get fouls called their way. Jonathan Burkardt was particularly impressive in attack.
- The Bayern midfield had a poor half. Goretzka was reckless with his challenges, while Kimmich’s long balls were always a few inches off their mark. This must improve if Bayern are to leave with any result other than a loss.
- Bayern’s defending... shambolic. Nothing more to say here. Lucas Hernandez is probably watching the game and weeping right now.
- Lewandowski fluffed Bayern’s only decent chance. Yes, he has only just returned from an injury, but he should do better in the second half if Bayern are to escape an embarrassing defeat.
45’ — HT.
tops / flops psg-bayern: paris heroic, the bayern goes next
© Panoramic Tops Paris in the big yard this time, we can say it, the psg is writing its history in Champions League. After eliminating the barça in the final 8ete, the capital club came out of Bayern, who had broken him during the last final. For this game back, there has been intensity, a lot of waste occasions, but especially flawless solidarity. Despite the defeat, the Parisians delivered a match reference in the fight.
37’ — Mainz grab a second! Robin Quaison heads in a superb ball off a free kick, and Bayern are looking helpless and out of ideas. The entire defense was caught out by a long ball yet again. Mainz are deservedly in the lead.
26’ — Bayern without answers up front. They haven’t been able to generate any meaningful chances so far outside a decent opportunity fluffed by Lewandowski.
19’ — Mainz’s press has been incredible thus far. Bayern’s chances have been few and far in between, with Mainz looking super dangerous on the counter and getting the better chances. Neuer has been called into action very often, and Bayern really need to step up their game.
9’ — Bayern are dominating possession, but are getting caught off guard quite often. The defenders are not looking sharp today, and have been caught ball watching often.
Bayern Munich reinforces its chair / Bundesliga (J30)

3’ — Mainz score! Bayern are caught off guard by a ball from the top. Alaba is unable to clear the ball properly with a sub-par header, and Burkardt sends a rocket towards Neuer, who is unable to keep the ball out. 1-0 Mainz!
1’ — And the game is underway at the Opel Arena!
One hour until kickoff: We have lineups!
This part of the season is somewhat bittersweet for fans of Bayern Munich, since it means that the journey is coming to an end. If the players manage to take all three points against Mainz, then the club will have won their ninth Bundesliga title in a row. While winning league titles never gets old, it’s unfortunate that the last few games of the season won’t matter much.
Still, there are a few more things to look forward to. Robert Lewandowski is back, so we fans can sit one the edge of our seats as we wonder if he can actually break Gerd Muller’s record. Meanwhile, Thomas Muller is also looking to break the record for most assists in a single Bundesliga season, which he set himself just last year.
Bundesliga: Bayern-Star apparently shortly before extension
Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting will probably remain the FC Bayern another year. According to the picture, the negotiations with the striker are just before the conclusion. © Provided by SPOX Eric Maxim Choupo-Motating showed its scorer qualities in the absence of Robert Lewandowski. Still in May, the extension with the 32-year-old should be brought under the roof and subject. His previous contract expires at the end of the season.
Outside of the individual records those two are chasing, this will likely be one of the last few games David Alaba and Jerome Boateng play for Bayern Munich. The pair will leave the club this summer, marking the end of an era for Bayern’s defense. While some fans may not be happy about the manner in which the duo are leaving, we can’t deny their invaluable years of service, and we should try and enjoy their performances while they’re still here.
It’s Bayern time.
