Germany – Bundesliga

Borussia Dortmund vs Mainz: Prediction

Der BVB recorded a 0-1 win on the road the last match-day, against Dusseldorf. It was a tough-fought victory for the potential runners-up.

The scoreline stood at 0-0 all through the ninety minutes, and it was in the final seconds of the injury time, that future superstar Erling Haaland found the winner for his team.

In the meantime, the 05ers lost 0-1 at home the past game week, against Augsburg. Right in the first minute itself the visitors found the back of the net, and despite trying their level best to find the equalizer, the home team could not.

A fleeting look at their respective forms, and it could be said that Der BVB are the favorites for the day. Not only are they placed second in the table at the moment, but they easily have been the best team in Germany after Bayern, for the past decade.

On the other hand, their opposite number have a total of two wins from their last ten fixtures, and they are placed just above the relegation line. Moreover, Der BVB have dominated h2h clashes for a long time over this opponent too.

Considering all these observations, it’s estimated that Borussia Dortmund are about to deliver a convincing win this Wednesday.
