Borussia Dortmund are predicted to win this match against Mainz

Fresh from securing a place in the Champions League final, Borussia Dortmund will return to the reality of the Bundesliga when they make the trip to Mewa Arena for Saturday’s clash with Mainz 05.

Dortmund are assured of a Champions League place and only have position play for, while Mainz are desperately fighting to move out of the bottom three before the curtain comes down on the 2023-24 season.

After being thumped 8-1 by Bayern Munich on March 9, Mainz were languishing in 16th place with two points separating them from the relegation playoff spot and a sizeable nine-point gap between themselves and safety.

At that stage, Mainz’s survival chances looked bleak, but they have since embarked on a remarkable seven-game unbeaten run (W3, D4) to move into the relegation playoff spot, leaving them five points clear of 17th-placed Koln and just one point adrift of Union Berlin in 15th position.

Borussia Dortmund are predicted to win this match against Mainz since they are unbeaten against Mainz in their last 7 head-to-head meetings, winning 4 times and settling for 3 draws.

On their part, Mainz have struggled for consistency on home soil lately, winning 4, drawing 3, and suffering 1 defeat in their last 8 home matches.

Based on our analysis of form and recent meetings, we are predicting a 1-0 victory for Borussia Dortmund, since Borussia Dortmund have scored in their last 6 away games and Mainz have not conceded 2 or more in their last 12 home games.
