Borussia Dortmund will travel to Rhineland this Sunday, as it takes on hosts FSV Mainz in matchweek 25 of the ongoing German Bundesliga season.
Mainz is currently sitting at the 9th position on the points table, with 34 points from the 24 games it has played so far. Bo Svensson will be pretty disappointed with the club’s latest outing after its 3-game lossless streak was disrupted by Union Berlin by a 3-1 margin. However, with quite a few matches still left to be played, Mainz can still aim to cover the 6 point gap that separates it from a European finish. While the defense hasn’t been the best virtue of the home team, the team has been able to score consistently and has netted at least once in its last 7 top-flight games.
Borussia Dortmund has been the only real challenger to Bayern Munich’s supremacy this season and is currently on the second spot on the points table. However, a loss and a defeat in its last 5 top-flight outings have meant that it has conceded ground to the toppers, who now lead Dortmund by 8 points.
If the visitors want a real shot at German glory, they will definitely need to collect maximum points this weekend. Despite losing to the Glasgow Rangers by an aggregate of 6-2 in the Europa League, most football betting sites are predicting a Dortmund win this Sunday.
Match prediction and betting tips for FSV Mainz vs Borussia Dortmund Bundesliga 2021-22. The match is going to be played at the MEWA Arena, Mainz, on 6th March 2022.
The home team is likely to field an offensive 3-4-3 formation for this game and will be looking to make early inroads within Dortmund’s defenses, which hasn’t been consistent. The attack will be led by Jae-sung Lee, Karim Onisiwo, and Jonathan Burkhardt. However, coach Bo Svensson will be missing the services of Dominik Kohr and Alexander Hack, both of whom are suspended, as well as Jeremiah St. Juste and Finn Dahmen who are injured.
The visitors are also likely to field a similar formation, with Jude Bellingham, Donyell Malen, and Julian Brandt leading the attack. The club will miss its top score Haaland due to injuries, along with Giovanni Reyna, Akanji, Mateu Morey, and Zagadou.
Given their offensive tactics, we expect both teams to score at least once. However, despite a depleted squad, the visitors will have the upper hand.
Bet on Borussia Dortmund to win.
