Borussia Dortmund – Mainz 05
Borussia Dortmund welcomes Mainz 05 in a game from the 33th round of the German Bundesliga. Let’s see what’s going on with these two teams.
Borussia Dortmund are third in the Bundesliga standings with 55 points won so far. They have a record of 15 wins, 10 draws and 7 defeats. In their last five matches Dortmund won twice, lost twice and made one draw. In the previous round of the league Borussia made a 1-1 draw during the visit to Werder in Bremen. Before this they celebrated a terrific 4-0 win against Bayer Leverkusen at home.
Right now Borussia Dortmund are just two points behind the 2nd Schalke 04, so they can even improve their position in the standings. Dortmund are currently three points ahead of Hoffenheim in the league standings.
Mainz 05 are 14th in the Bundesliga with 33 points. They are still not safe from relegation, because they are just 3 points above the 16th Wolfsburg and the relegation playoff zone. Right now Mainz have a record of 8 wins, 9 draws and 15 defeats. In their last five matches they won twice, made two draws and suffered one defeat. In the previous round Mainz enjoyed a 3-0 win over RB Leipzig at home.
Mainz know that they must be as good as possible, because this is a decisive time for them. If they lose their remaining two games in the league, nobody knows what could happen in the end. They can’t allow this.
For Dortmund the game is important, too. They can climb to second place in the league, which is going to be even better than what it is now.
