• Bayern are unbeaten in their last three games against Mainz (W2 D1), winning both games last season (3-1 at home and 3-0 away). Mainz managed only one goal in those three games.
  • Mainz have only won one of their nine away games (7 Bundesliga, 2 German Cup) against FC Bayern (D1, L7); a 2-1 league victory on September 25th 2010.
  • Bayern, as they were in their record-breaking season of 2012/13, are undefeated after eight games (6 wins). Last season they lost only once; to Leverkusen on matchday 9 (2-1).
  • Mainz are without a win in five Bundesliga games, but did pick up a point against Hoffenheim on the last matchday after four games without any return. No other club has had as poor a run in their last five games as Mainz.
  • Bayern are undefeated in their last 33 Bundesliga games (W27 D6), thus continuing to add to their club record. In the history of the Bundesliga, only HSV have managed a longer run (36 games, between 1982 and 1983).
  • Bayern have scored in their last 45 Bundesliga games, adding to their Bundesliga record in the process. The last time that FCB went without a goal in the top flight was on matchday 31 of the 2011/12 season in a 0-0 against Mainz.
  • Jan Kirchhoff swapped sides in the summer of 2013. He played for Mainz for six years, from the youth teams upwards, and made 57 Bundesliga appearances for the club.
  • Daniel van Buyten scored his first (2004) and his most recent Bundesliga goal (November 2011) against Mainz, as well as his only Bundesliga brace. The only other side he has scored four goals against in 10 Bundesliga games is Eintracht Frankfurt.
  • Müller vs. Müller: Nicolai Müller leads the Bundesliga goalscoring charts with six goals. Thomas Müller is Bayern’s top scorer in competitive games (7 - the same number as Robben).
  • Franck Ribery has not lost any of his last 38 Bundesliga games; only Holger Hieronymus in HSV colours in the 1980s has also achieved this in the history of the Bundesliga. The Frenchman could set a new record against Mainz.
