Mainz 05 – Borussia Dortmund, Bundesliga Prediction
ANALYSIS AND PREDICTION FOR MAINZ - BORUSSIA
Mainz recorded their first loss since the new coach came. It came from an inappropriate rival like Augsburg, who, like Mainz, struggled to survive. At the moment, Mainz is not very far from the bottom, so they cannot afford to relax. This is also the team with the weakest defense, and even with victories over Hoffenheim and Eintracht, they have scored goals.
Borussia Dortmund defeated Slavia Prague with great luck, because the Czechs couldn’t score from great position at 2-1 for Borussia Dortmund, while Inter were losing to Barcelona, which meant that Dortmund were in the semifinals in UCL even with a draw. In the Bundesliga, they are even ahead of Bayern Munich, but Leipzig and Gladbach have pulled up. Borussia seems to have gotten rid of the crisis and is currently looking much better.
Expert view : Dortmund’s defense is, to put it mildly, hesitant, and positives can hardly be written about Mainz’s defense. Usually over the years this match has been a symbol of beautiful football and true spectacle, so we have little choice here, except for BTTS and Over 2.5 goals at 1.72. However, Borussia have only one clean sheet as a guest this season in the Bundesliga.
Mainz did not score at home in just one match in the Bundesliga
