Borussia Dortmund faces Mainz 05
Borussia Dortmund faces Mainz 05 in a game from the 29th round of the Bundesliga. Let’s take a look at this fixture at the Signal Iduna Park in Dortmund in our winning soccer predictions.
After their heavy 0-5 defeat at the Allianz Arena against Bayern Munich last week, Borussia Dortmund were overtaken at the top. Now Lucien Favre’s team is 2nd in the league with 63 points, being just one point behind the leader Bayern Munich. Of course, this means that Dortmund are still in the title race and they must fight until the end.
It was really a bad day for Borussia Dortmund against the champions. The visitors hoped for at least a strategical draw, which would have kept them at the top of the league. But instead of this, they suffered their heaviest loss for the season.
Before this defeat in Munich, Borussia Dortmund were enjoying a run of three consecutive wins in the league. Now they must hope to start winning again and hope that Bayern will make some mistakes.
Meanwhile Mainz 05 are 12th in the Bundesliga with 33 points won so far and a record of 9 wins, 6 draws and 13 losses. In their last five games in the league Mainz lost four times, but in the previous round they enjoyed a terrific 5-0 win at home against Freiburg. The French striker Jean Mateta scored a hattrick for Mainz, while Jean Paul Boetius and Karim Onisiwo also scored for the home side. It was one of Mainz’ best games for the season. If they play like this against Borussia Dortmund at the Signal Iduna Park, they might have a chance for something more in this game
These are our winning soccer predictions for the Bundesliga clash between Borussia Dortmund and Mainz 05 on Saturday evening. Good luck!
