Dortmund vs Mainz Prediction & Betting tips
Borussia Dortmund and Mainz 05 take on Saturday afternoon against each other. The home team fights for European football, while the visitors still need points in the fight for life retention.
Borussia Dortmund is still in good shape in the fight for a starting ticket for the CL of next season. Even after the loss of points last week, visiting Werder Bremen (1-1), Der BVB still stands at the top four. Dortmund is the current number three in the rankings. However, the matter has not yet been settled, as the lead on number five Bayer Leverkusen is four points. Moreover, on the final playing day number four TSG Hoffenheim is the opponent of Dortmund.
Trainer Peter Stöger is working on his last matches as responsible at Dortmund. Still, the coach did not want to pay too much attention during the press talk. “Placing for the Champions League is the only thing that interests us,” Stöger said. There are some doubts about Dortmund, but it seems that the same eleven can start as last week.
Last week Mainz 05 booked a very important victory. In the home game against RB Leipzig, the team of coach Sandro Schwarz started straining the match and was not allowed to grumble that the visitors did not score. However, Mainz got better and better in the game and after ninety minutes there was a big 3-0 on the scoreboard. The final score was flattered, but in itself the victory was not undeserved for Die Nullfünfer.
The team now stands at 33 points, good for place fourteen. There are three more than number sixteen VfL Wolfsburg and the same number as number fifteen SC Freiburg. After the match in Dortmund, the confrontation (at home) with Werder Bremen follows on the last day of play. For Saturday’s game there are not many absents in the selection.
