Fantasy Football Tips

Captain Options

Robert Lewandowski – Robert Lewandowski was in stunning form before his injury and managed to score or assists in every game from the first week of February to the last week of March. He has racked up 35 goals and 8 assists in the league this season with 54 shots on target as well.

Thomas Muller – With 10 goals and 17 assists in the Bundesliga this season, Muller has been excellent as usual. He has created 99 chances, succeeded in 23 attempted dribbles at a completion rate of 74% and whipped in 22 accurate crosses despite playing a more central role for the Bavarians.

Differential Pick

Jean-Paul Boetius – Jean-Paul Boetius has 1 goal and 4 assists this season and has created 34 chances, succeeded in 23 attempted dribbles at a completion rate of 68%. The Dutch international bagged a goal and assist in their 3-2 win against Koln as he picked up the Man of the Match award. He will look to create chances for the front 2 while also fancying a long-range shot to destabilize the Bayern attack.

MAZ vs BAY Dream 11 Teams

Goalkeeper – Zentner
Defenders – Alaba, Pavard, Davies
Midfielders – Sane, Kimmich, Boetius, Barreiro
Forwards – Muller (VC), Lewandowski (C), Burkardt

Likely Winner:

There is a lot at stake for both sides in the MAZ vs BAY Today Match Prediction. Bayern will look to wrap their season up as soon as they can. Mainz have only 8 wins all season but they have been in excellent form and will know that they can take points from Bayern Munich if they take the right approach. But Bayern might prove to be very strong at moment, having scored 85 goals in 30 games while Mainz has scored just 31 goals in 29 games. It should be a routine win for Bayern but they can not take their opponents lightly.
