• Bayern have won their last three games against Mainz and scored at least three times in each of those matches.
  • Mainz were the last Bundesliga side that stopped Bayern from scoring a goal – the two teams drew 0-0 at the Allianz Arena on April 14th 2012. FCB have scored in each of their 62 league games since then (Bundesliga record).
  • FC Bayern can be crowned Bundesliga champions in Mainz: They need to win and hope that both Schalke and Dortmund fail to collect three points. It would be the earliest title-win in Bundesliga history.
  • Mainz (17 points) are the third-best team in the second half of the season after Bayern (24) and Schalke (19).
  • FCB have won each of their last 17 games (Bundesliga record), while FSV have lost just one of their last 11 Bundesliga matches (W6, D4).
  • The Munich side have won each of their last eight away games in the league – the Bundesliga record stands at nine straight away wins, set by FCB themselves last season.
  • Bayern (currently with 74 goals scored) require just 28 more goals from the last nine games (an average of 3.1 per game) to set a new goalscoring record in the Bundesliga.
  • Only Bayern (16 times) have scored more often in the final 15 minutes of games than Mainz (11 times, the same as Schalke and Dortmund).
  • Bayern (11) and Mainz (10) have scored the most goals from substitutes in 2013/14. In Choupo-Moting (5 goals) and Mandzukic (4, the same as Kumbela), the two top-scoring substitutes in the Bundesliga this season could meet.
  • Shinji Okazaki is just the third Japanese player to have a two-digit goal tally in a Bundesliga season. Only Naohiro Takahara (2006/07: 11 goals for Frankfurt) and Shinji Kagawa (2011/12: 13 goals for Dortmund) have achieved it before him.
  • Mario Mandzukic is the first Croatian to score 17 goals in a Bundesliga season. The striker has now scored in six successive Bundesliga games for the first time in his career.
