Mainz will be pleased with their performance last weekend. They recorded a dominating victory over Freiburg on the road. The final scoreline was 1-3. More pleasing to the fans would be the fact that three different players scored the goals, giving rise to a sense of team spirit and morale. Gbamin and Mateja scored the two first-half goals.

Freiburg pulled back one through Sallai and curtailed the lead to just one. But Onisiwo restored the lead within two minutes.

Dortmund is absolutely flying high with confidence after their victory in the Der Klassiker over Bayern Munich. In a match which showed justice to the meaning of the words Der Klassiker, a total of five goals were scored.

Some home fans (Dortmund) must have felt their eyes tearing up when both Lewandowski and Reus got on the scoresheet. But different to what usually happened some seasons before, Lewandowski had scored for Bayern.

Munich went ahead two times through the Polish striker. But both times Marco Reus equalized the score. Later Barca striker Paco Alcacer, currently on loan at Borussia, scored the winner for the hosts.

Mainz vs Dortmund Head-to-head (h2h)

  • Last two head-to-head matches saw the away team winning the tie.
  • Borussia recorded 13 of the last 15 wins when these two teams met.
  • Mainz is winless in seven of their last ten games.
  • Dortmund has lost only once in their last 20 matches. The sole loss came on the road against Atletico Madrid in the UEFA Champions League.
  • Mainz has just a single win in their last four matches at home.
  • Dortmund was on a 14-match unbeaten streak on the road, before their loss to Atleti.

Mainz vs Dortmund Prediction

Till last week, Dortmund was one of only three teams left in Europe to suffer a defeat this season, along with Chelsea and Juventus. Their away loss against Atletico Madrid in the Champions League stripped them of that honor. But still, they remain the major threat in Bundesliga.

Borussia is making a push for a league title, one after several years of boring domination by Bayern Munich. Since Juergen Klopp left Borussia Dortmund, this is the first time that they have allowed themselves to be counted as the favorites for the title.

Borussia will likely continue their league form. Being on the road won’t be much of an obstacle against a team like Mainz whom they have dominated in head-to-head ties. To be precise, 13 of the last 15 wins are in the name of Dortmund.

Disregarding their lone loss against Atleti, Borussia were on unbeaten streaks both overall and on the road. They are still unbeaten in the league.

Mainz has just one win to their name in last four home matches. Their overall record too isn’t that satisfactory. They are winless in seven of their last ten matches.

Borussia Dortmund has scored the most goals in Bundesliga so far. 33 from their 11 matches. Except for Leipzig, they have conceded the least too, 12.
