Mainz 05 – Borussia Dortmund

Mainz 05 faces Borussia Dortmund at the Mewa Arena in a match from the 17th round of the Bundesliga. Stay with us and our preview for this fixture. Let’s get to work!

Mainz 05 approach this tough game from 12th place in the standings. They have won 20 points so far but it’s still not enough to feel completely safe. Mainz still have some work to do in order to survive.

After the winter break, Mainz restarted their campaign with a draw. Bo Svensson’s team paid a visit to Stuttgart where the game ended 1-1. Marcus Ingvartsen scored Mainz 05’s only goal in the game from a penalty kick in the first half.

Mainz 05 don’t have a win in their last five Bundesliga matches. They should change this if they want to have bigger chances of survival.

Borussia Dortmund recorded a win in their return to the pitch. Die Borussen hosted Augsburg and offered a true spectacle to their fans – 4-3. Four different players scored for the hosts. Jude Bellingham opened the score while Schlotterbeck, Bynoe-Gittens and Reyna also score until the final whistle.

For Dortmund the big news is the return of the striker Sebastian Haller. He’s once again playing after recovering from cancer. Against Augsburg, Haller entered the pitch in the second half of the game. Let’s see if he’s going to start in the next game. He’s a great striker and he will be like a new signing to the team.

That’s the preview we can offer you for the Bundesliga clash between Mainz 05 and Borussia Dortmund. The visitors look in a better position to win this one, but they must pay some attention to their defense – conceding three goals in the last game was far from fine. Let’s see if Dortmund can take the win here.
