Sandro Schwarz (also) from Germany looks after and coaches the kickers of 1 FSV Mainz 05. The team is currently engaged in the Bundesliga (group stage - 33rd matchday) in twelfth position with eleven for themselves decided of more than 30 matches. On the other hand, the team is eliminated in the cupround against FC Augsburg of the DFB Cup. All in all, 55 goals were scored, 55 goals conceded and eleven of 33 matches were won this season. The home arena of the club, the Opel Arena in Mainz, offers enough space for up to 34000 visitors. In their latest Bundesliga match against Eintracht Frankfurt, 1 FSV Mainz 05 didn't want to take a big risk in terms of formation and took advantage of the most effective formation of the season (4-3-1-2). Finally 1 FSV Mainz 05 took the triumph with 2:0.

After a handicap of three goals, the biggest possible of the current season, against Bayer Leverkusen in the 21st group phase of the Bundesliga, a defeat was feared anyway. In the end the game ended 1 : 5. The farthest goal of the current season was scored by the 178cm high jersey number 05 Jean-Paul Boetius on April 5, 2019 in the 28th group phase match of the Bundesliga against SC Freiburg from 25m away in the 20th minute. The last success of 1 FSV Mainz 05 against Bayern Munich was 3 years and 2 months ago. Meanwhile, both football elves met 13 more times. The last game took place on 27 October 2018. In the 61 matches of the last 15 years 1 FSV Mainz 05 could secure a point difference of -94 against Bayern Munich. In summary, the team weighs as much as 106 crates of beer, but on average even 7.6 kg less than the average European. With 96 kg, the 195cm goalkeeper Robin Zentner surpasses this value the most.

The team's goalkeepers have done an impressive job in defending against opposing goal attempts. With an average height of 183cm, the footballers of 1 FSV Mainz 05 tend to be as long as their competitors. In away games, the group will be happy to play 1 FC Nuremberg, where the most frequent triumphs took place. The 5-0 success in the 28th group phase match of the Bundesliga against SC Freiburg was no big surprise after 1 FSV Mainz 05 took their highest lead of the first half of the current season of three points. Of the average 14 shots per game, only 33% actually hit the box, the rest were missed (42%) or intercepted by the opponent (25%).

Despite eight successes and nine failures, the 4-3-1-2 arrangement is currently the most successful of the football eleven. Thanks to the late full goal in minute 89 by the 73kg heavy jersey number 10 Alexandru Maxim succeeded 1 FSV Mainz 05 on 15 September 2018 against FC Augsburg to win 2-1. Pablo De Blasis (right-winger), Florian Muller (goalkeeper), Daniel Brosinski (right-winger), Pierre Kunde, Ridle Baku and Jean-Philippe Gbamin (midfielder) as well as Aaron Martin (left-winger) have been in the starting line-up with 20 other pros since August. The club has lost a game in the current season (against FC Augsburg) despite a lead in the first half.

With no less than seven orders, 1 FSV Mainz 05 started in the games of the current season (3-5-2, 5-3-2, 4-1-2-3, 4-2-3-1, 4-4-2, 4-3-1-2, 4-3-3, 4-1-3-2). Unfortunately, the football team suffered a defeat on 30.10.2018 in the cup game of the DFB Cup against FC Augsburg in the last minutes by a goal of Michael Gregoritsch 47 minutes before final whistle. Thank God this was the only time of the current season. In the group, 20% prefer the right foot. With an outcome of only ten triumphs, eight draws plus 43 losses against Bayern Munich in MAI's own stadium, this team is the toughest opponent there.

Although Jonathan Michael Burkardt is only 18 years old, 1 FSV Mainz 05 has an average age of 25. In the 30th Bundesliga Group Phase match against Fortuna Dusseldorf, 84kg striker Jean Philippe Mateta scored the MAI's fastest goal of the current season after just 37 seconds with the help of an assistant from Karim Onisiwo. In the first half, the selection tends to give up the early lead. Occasionally, a game is clarified only in the last ten minutes, such as on 15 September 2018 against FC Augsburg with two goals from Anthony Ujah, Ji Dong Won and Alexandru Maxim in minutes 87, 90 and 82. The most effective result was achieved by 1 FSV Mainz 05 against Fortuna Dusseldorf (11/4/6). In contrast, the outcome against Bayern Munich (10/8/43) is historically the worst. Instead of being part of the starting line-up, various professional footballers were sitting on the bench before the kickoff. It mainly comprised Karim Onisiwo and Anthony Ujah (striker), Robin Zentner (goalkeeper), Niko Bungert and Gaetan Bussmann (defender) as well as Pierre Kunde (midfielder).
