Borussia Dortmund vs Mainz Match Preview
Borussia Dortmund host Mainz for their Matchday 29 clash on Saturday looking for a quick fix in front of the home fans after a very disappointing trip to Munich, where Bayern outclassed them in a 5-0 win with goals from Mats Hummels, Robert Lewandowski, Javi Martinez, and Serge Gnabry.
BVB have thus seen their three-match winning streak ended as they dropped the top spot and sit a point behind the fierce rivals, having beaten Stuttgart (3-1), Hertha (2-3), and Wolfsburg (2-0) in very exciting clashes along the way. They’ll now be very motivated to impress in the final third and we do see them making it happen against struggling rivals.
Indeed, Mainz have picked up their team spirits last weekend and bagged a thrashing 5-0 win over Freiburg, which will give them ground to build on in Dortmund. However, this only comes amid a streak where they suffered seven losses in nine outings as Sandro Schwarz’ men struggle for such stability at the back.
Die Nullfunfer have seen nothing but losses on the road since early February too as their defensive woes proved costly once too often, with Augsburg (3-0), Wolfsburg (3-0), Hertha (2-1), Bayern Munich (6-0), and Werder Bremen (3-1) all secured the points with confidence.
We feel Borussia Dortmund will have what it takes to capitalize on such woes and we’ll now go for a Home win and a Yes on Both teams to score, which combines to an enticing 8/5 with bet365 and caught the eye of many with BVB all over the place last week.
With that in mind, we’re now also back another high-scoring clash at Signal Iduna Park with Over 2.5 Goals FT, which has been rated a banker bet by many in the know at 4/9 with Paddy Power.
