FSV Mainz 05 vs Borussia Dortmund Predictions

  • Mainz have seen 13 total goals scored across their last four Bundesliga games.
  • Dortmund’s Bundesliga games average a league-high 4.1 goals per match.
  • Six of the last eight H2H meetings produced at least three match goals.

Stuttering Mainz need a big performance

Mainz will be well aware of Dortmund’s wobbling form and they will look to take advantage of that as they seek to keep their forlorn European hopes alive. Consistency has not been Mainz’s strong suit though, with each of their last seven Bundesliga games posting differing results in sequence.

It would take a brave bettor to back against Mainz at home, as they have lost no games since a 2-1 defeat to Union Berlin back in October 2021. Since then, five of their nine competitive home clashes saw over 2.5 goals while as many saw both teams score, suggesting this could also be an exciting clash.

When Dortmund play, expect goals

There are few teams in world football whose games consistently produce high-scoring affairs like Borussia Dortmund. Their Bundesliga clashes are averaging 4.1 total goals per-game, a league high. Moreover, a whopping 20 of their games so far produced at least three match goals (80%).

Considering Mainz’s desperate need for points in order to mount a European challenge, their solid home form, and Dortmund’s consistently high-scoring clashes, I predict that this will be no different and should yield at least three goals at a decent value price.

As for the correct score, I think that Mainz could prove plucky and hold out for an enthralling high-scoring 2-2 draw against a depleted Dortmund side, albeit with the fit again Erling Haaland in their ranks.
