Borussia Dortmund is going to be hosting Mainz in this next Bundesliga contest. Borussia is one of the most exciting teams to watch in all of football this season. They have been scoring goals with ridiculous ease and giving up a fair few in return as well. They are unbeaten in the Bundesliga 2021-22 season so far and are currently third in the standings. Interestingly, Mainz has quite a good record against Borussia Dortmund in recent matches.
Mainz has two wins, two defeats, and a draw in the previous five matches it has played against Borussia Dortmund. Mainz is in 9th place in the Bundesliga standings and a team that can be quite difficult to get past. It has a habit of tripping up bigger and better teams quite regularly.

Match prediction and football betting tips for Borussia Dortmund vs FSV Mainz Bundesliga 2021-22. The match is going to be played at the Signal Iduna Park, Dortmund, Germany on the 16th of October 2021.
Borussia Dortmund looked like a completely different team without Erling Haaland and struggled to find another spearhead to be able to lead its attack. However, he is expected to be back for this match and provide an immediate boost to the team. He will be needed as Mainz has a dramatically different and defensive approach to football than Borussia. Mainz has conceded just five goals so far and is quite toug to break down.
With home advantage on its side, Erling Haaland back in action, and more depth in its squad, we think Borussia Dortmund should be able to win this match quite comfortably.
Bet on Borussia Dortmund to win.
This is a risky bet but the odds make it very attractive. We know that Borussia Dortmund has been prolific at scoring goals, especially at home. It has scored more than 2.5 goals in five out of the previous six games it has played at home. However, Erling Haaland is returning from injury and may not play the entire duration of the game. Mainz has also conceded just five goals in the entire season and only two of its games have seen more than 2.5 goals being scored. Betting under 2.5 goals in this market is risky but worth a punt for sure.
