Mainz Defeats Bayern Munich 3-1, Adding to Tuchel's Woes After UCL Exit

Mainz outwitted Bayern Munich 3-1 last weekend to add insult to injury for Tuchel following their early exit from UEFA Champions League competition. LWWDL now haven’t won in four total competition games and after just two in Bundesliga play. Bayern fell to Zero5ers last weekend and fell into second place; however, with Dortmund only picking up one point from their 1-1 tie against Bochum on Friday night – Bayern are hoping to regain first position and take back first spot from Dortmund [61 points]. The Bavarians currently stand with 59 points from 29 matches (17 wins, 8 draws and 4 losses), making this season their worst in over 12 years. Thomas Tuchel has taken charge as head coach at FC Bayern Munchen after Julian Nagelsmann left and won two out of seven competitive matches so far [2W, 2D, 3L]. An examination of Bayern Munich’s figures raises more questions than answers for its leadership, with three defeats already suffering under Tuchel in seven games this season compared to 37 under Julian Nagelsmann this season. Tuchel gave his answers at a pre-match press conference on Friday and may opt for a 4–2-3-1 formation, with 18-year-old Mathys Tel in attack. Unfortunately, Bayern will be without Dayot Upamecano who suffered a muscle strain in his right thigh, rendering them short of players for this matchup. Thomas Tuchel on Friday reported: “Upa was injured yesterday and will likely miss approximately two weeks,” while Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting and Alphonso Davies remain unavailable, while Leon Goretzka (knee injury) and Kingsley Coman (back injury) could miss Sunday’s match after not taking part in Friday group training sessions.
