The Match Is Over. Score: 0-2
Dortmund vs Mainz PredictionIf not for their nemesis Bayern Munich, Borussia Dortmund would easily have been the best German team over the past decade. Der BVB have been totally outstanding this season, putting no foot wrong in their bid to produce a worthwhile title challenge.
Match status: 2019/20 Bundesliga - Matchweek 32
Kick-off:
Venue: Signal Iduna Park (Dortmund)
However, with defending champions Bayern Munich outclassing them, they have been forced to play second-fiddle to the Bavarians once again. Sitting second on the standings, having amassed 66 points from 31 games, Dortmund have definitely played out a wonderful campaign.

With the title race pretty much over, Lucien Favre’s side will turn their attention to retaining second-spot on the league standings. Currently four points clear of third-placed RB Leipzig, a few more wins will surely secure their place behind table-toppers Bayern Munich.

Coming up against a side embroiled in a heated relegation scuffle in Mainz this Wednesday, Die Borussen will be looking to clinch maximum points to condemn the opposition to defeat. However, with the visitors in a very precarious situation at the moment, expect a strong performance from the 05ers come kickoff.

Borussia Dortmund vs Mainz Team News

Having lost grounds on arch-rivals Bayern Munich in the race for the Bundesliga title, Borussia Dortmund will be looking to finish second-place at the end of the season. Two games ago, they were in action against Hertha Berlin and deemed huge favorites for the win, ultimately delivering all three points at full-time.

However, it was far from a routine win for Lucien Favre’s side as they were made to scrap really hard for the points. Die Alte Dame got stuck in at the back with the intent of frustrating every Dortmund attack. That game-plan worked to perfection as there were to be no goals at half-time.

Following the restart, in the 57th minute, Julian Brandt danced his way through a couple of Hertha Berlin defenders, creating some space to deliver an inch-perfect cross to Emre Can, who was patiently waiting on the edge of the box. The German’s head connected well with the ball, placing it into the net to salvage all three points for his side.

Mainz, on the other hand, were subjected to a narrow 0-1 loss at home to Augsburg on the last match-day. The 05ers put forth a worthwhile performance in the game but were ultimately forced home empty-handed, throwing their top-flight status all up in the air.

For this fixture, Borussia Dortmund have to be considered favorites for the win. They were made to work hard for their win over the past two games – defeating both Hertha Berlin and Fortuna Dusseldorf with a narrow 1-0 margin. 

With only three points separating them from the drop zone, Achim Beielorzer’s side are currently on thin ice. Any minor slip at this point could see them plummet into the dreaded relegation places. As such, the 05ers will be turning in their best performance in this fixture to claim all three points.

They have been enduring a meagre record in recent games with just two wins over their preceding ten fixtures. They have managed a measly 31 points from 31 games so far this season.

Injured or Suspended Players

Borussia Dortmund: Dan-Axel Zagadou, Marco Reus, Mahmoud Dahoud and Thomas Delaney.

Dortmund vs Mainz Predictions

Taking these into context, it goes without saying that Mainz are in dire need of points. This side cannot afford any slip-ups to avoid plunging into the drop-zone. As driven as they will be in this fixture, given they will be coming against Dortmund, they are very likely to head home empty-handed.

Expect the home side to clinch all three points here, via a narrow win margin. Also, Mainz should have enough about themselves to bag a goal. As such, the ‘both teams to score’ market is another bet likely to yield fruits.
