Dortmund vs Mainz Match Details:

League: Bundesliga

Venue: SIGNAL IDUNA PARK, Dortmund, Germany

Time: 27th May, 7 pm

Dortmund vs Mainz Preview:

Borussia Dortmund host Mainz at the Signal Iduna Park on Saturday, knowing that a victory will be enough for them to clinch their first Bundesliga title since Jurgen Klopp in 2011-12. Last weekend’s results in the Bundesliga were huge in terms of the league title, with Tuchel’s side facing a 3-1 defeat to Leipzig. Terzic’s side capitalized on this slip-up and a 3-0 victory over Augsburg meant that the Black and Yellows have matters into their own hands now. A draw today however won’t be feasible as Bayern Munich have a much superior goal difference. Despite this, Dortmund will be confident of a victory against a Mainz side who have lost each of their last 4 matches, having conceded at least 3 goals in each of them. Terzic’s side also boast the best home record in the league this campaign, having won 14 and drawn one of their 16 matches at the Westfalenstadion. The Black and yellows are on a 11-game winning streak at home, their best since 1994. They are also on a 7 game unbeaten streak since their loss to Bayern Munich in early April having scored 24 goals in the process, averaging well over 3 goals per game. This bodes well for the likes of Malen and Haller, who could have a field day today.

Mainz meanwhile sit 9th in the table with 42 points and anything positive against the league leaders would confirm a top half finish for the visitors. The unbeaten streak from February to April meant Bo Svensson’s side were firm favorites to finish in the European spots – however, a succession of 4 consecutive defeats has slipped them down to 9th and can finish only as high as 8th in the table. Their latest defeat came at the hands of VfB Stuttgart at home after Ingvartsen gave the hosts an early lead, following which there was carnage by the visitors scoring 4 and eventually winning the game 4-1. This also saw Mainz losing back to back home games for the first time this season. Having conceded 13 gooals over the past 4 games, Bo Svensson will be aware of their defensive woes, especially ahead of Dortmund who are the league’s second highest scorers. Although Mainz have nothing much to play for, they’ll be hoping to seek revenge for the 2-1 loss to Dortmund in the reverse fixture in January and ending their title hopes.
