Borussia Dortmund vs 1. FSV Mainz 05 Match Preview

Borussia Dortmund are hosting the last spot holders FSV Mainz for Matchday 16. The home team looked good in the last 2 games, and they are the favorite on this fixture.

Going into this game, the black and yellows are occupying the 5th position in the Bundesliga. However, the home team has the potential to leapfrog itself to 2nd position by the end of the matchday. This is thanks to the huge favor that Union Berlin pulled off of Friday again Bayern Leverkusen.

Witsel’s Achilles injury will keep him out for the rest of the season. However, inform Can and potentially Bellingham are ready to fill in for the crucial number 8 role. Jadon Sancho’s form seems to be back, and Erling Haaland is crushing it after recovering from his injury.


On the other hand, Mainz is not looking particularly good this season. In fact, they are very likely to be part of the 2nd tier league by the end of this campaign. As far as BVB is concerned, a win at home against the last team in the Bundesliga is vital to their hopes of competing for the Bundesliga title.
