Nevertheless, the O-Fives will have hard times backing up such results this time out as they are to travel to Dortmund to tackle the third-placed Borussia on Saturday. BVB are four points above Bayer Leverkusen in fifth, meaning a win here would secure them a new Champions league campaign next season.

They drew 1-1 away at Werder Bremen last weekend, but will come into this off the back of an impressive thread of four straight victories at home in Bundesliga.

Borussia Dortmund vs Mainz: Head-to-head

Mainz have not been a tricky rivals to Borussia Dortmund in the most recent set of H2H affairs.

BVB won five and drew one of last six encounters with the O-Fives and they lost just 3 of 23 matches against Mainz over the history.

Additionally, Borussia won seven and drew four of 11 home matches with Mainz 05.

Borussia Dortmund vs Mainz: Prediction

Dortmund were super impressive in the latest home fixtures in Bundesliga. They bagged an impressive seven-goal tally in last two wins at Signal-Iduna-Park and they notched three or more goals on three separate occasions in last four matches in front of the home fans. It’s quite a remarkable streak given the opposition included the likes of Eintracht Frankfurt, Bayer Leverkusen and Stuttgart.

Mainz have been dreadful travellers throughout the entire season so far., They failed to score in three of last four games on the road and they’ll hardly improve such record against the likes of Borussia Dortmund. In all, we expect the hosts to confirm the Champions League qualification with a comprehensive home victory over the relegation strugglers on Saturday.
