Overview

In an upcoming Bundesliga clash, Borussia Dortmund is set to host Mainz 05 at the iconic Signal Iduna Park. With Dortmund currently sitting at 5th in the league table and Mainz struggling at 17th, this match presents a crucial opportunity for both teams to chase their respective goals. Dortmund aims to climb higher up the table, while Mainz is desperate to escape the relegation zone.

Borussia Dortmund

Borussia Dortmund has had a mixed bag of results in their last five games, with a record of one win, two draws, and two losses. Their most recent fixture ended in a 1-1 draw against FC Augsburg at the WWK Arena. Despite not securing a win, Dortmund has shown resilience throughout the season with seven wins and five draws out of fifteen games played. They have a positive goal difference of +5, which indicates their ability to outscore opponents.

Playing at home has been advantageous for Dortmund, as reflected in their historical performance against Mainz 05, where they have won four times and drawn once in their last five encounters. The team will be looking to leverage their home ground advantage and recent decent form to secure another victory.

Mainz 05

Mainz 05's recent form has been concerning, with no wins in their last five matchesÔÇödrawing three and losing two. Their latest outing resulted in a narrow 1-0 defeat to FC Heidenheim at the MEWA ARENA. With only one win this season and a troubling goal difference of -15, Mainz is in dire need of points to improve their standing and boost morale.

The historical head-to-head record against Borussia Dortmund does not favor Mainz either, having lost four out of the last five matches against them. Playing away from home adds another layer of challenge for Mainz, who will have to overcome both their own form and Dortmund's home strength to get a positive result.
