“When Bayern Munich travels to Mainz on Saturday, Harry Kane will look to add to his eight League goals in seven games,,

Mainz should avoid a striker of Kane’s caliber. The 05ers defeated Bayern 3-1 at home on April 22 but have lost their last 12 Bundesliga games. Bo Svensson’s team is in 17th place after seven games of the current season with just two points, one point above the bottom-place Cologne. The last time out, they appeared poised to break their losing streak at Borussia Mönchengladbach. They were up 2-1 thanks to goals from teenagers Brajan Gruda and Aymen Barkok before giving away an equalizer in the 88th minute. After standing out on the bench against Gladbach, Barkok is vying for a starting position. You might also bring back Dominik Kohr to play center midfield.

Bayern owes Mainz a repayment after their draw with Borussia Dortmund on the last day of the previous campaign helped Munich retain the title. The record champions are two points behind pre-matchday eight leaders Bayer Leverkusen but have won seven straight games to start their title defense. Kane has eight Bundesliga goals to his credit, and Leroy Sané scored for the sixth time this season in the 3-0 victory over Freiburg. Kingsley Coman scored twice in that match, but Dayot Upamecano sustained a groin injury that will keep him out for a few weeks. As a result, Matthijs de Ligt might be put in danger after returning to training after suffering a knee injury, negating the need for Leon Goretzka to fill in at center back.

As he did in the opening round of the DFB Cup. While Manuel Neuer, the custodian, is attempting to make his first appearance since November of last year after returning to training following a leg fracture, no timetable has been provided for his return.
