Chelsea lost their 100% record when they lost 1-0 at Eastlands on Saturday. Five games into Spain’s La Liga season giants Barca and Real have both dropped points. In Italy Inter lead Serie A but have dropped five points in their five games.
But in the German Bundesliga one team has a perfect 100% record six games into the season FSV Mainz 05. The newly promoted team from south west Germany continued their run by beating last season’s Champion League finalists Bayern 2-1 in Munich.
Mainz play in red shirts and white shorts and their ground – Stadion am Bruchweg – has a capacity of just over 20,000. The last ten seasons has seen the team jumping between Bundesliga one and two. Their best seasons where in 2004-5 and 2005-6 when they finished 11th in the top division.
