Mainz 05 will welcome Borussia Dortmund to OPEL ARENA for a matchday 33 fixture in Germany Bundesliga. The last meeting on 16th January 2021 ended in a 1-1 draw. Both sides have met twenty-five times in the most recent seasons. Mainz 05 has won 5 matches, and Borussia Dortmund triumphed in 15. Recent outings average 2.60 goals, while both teams score 56% of the time.
Mainz 05's latest fixture against Eintracht Frankfurt ended in an away 1-1 draw. They were not spectacular, so this result seems fair. Mainz 05 set the tone early and scored in the 11st minute.
So far, Mainz 05 plays better on the road than at home. They win 1.35 points per away game on average compared to 0.94 points at home. Although Mainz 05 is among the most solid home teams in the league, they are far from perfect. Their defence is not as good as expected with just 12% home clean sheets.
Borussia Dortmund has picked up 18 points from the previous six league games. They still have a lot to prove when playing away from home. Der BVB wins 1.71 points per away game, a bit less than their home record shows. To improve results, they have to be more compact in defence. Borussia Dortmund kept a clean sheet in just 24% of their visits.
The hosts will have to work hard to get a good result. Karnevalsverein has won just 24% of home games. On average they score 0.94 goals and concede 1.53 per game. Borussia Dortmund won their previous away game and I expect more of the same. Their away record looks impressive.
The visitors have a better record and I have to back them. Mainz 05 wins on average 0.94 points per home game. I am not sure they have what it takes to compete against Borussia Dortmund. My prediction is Borussia Dortmund to win.
I expect a thrilling contest with plenty of goals. Both sides score and concede on average 2.97 goals per game. Over 2.5 goals were scored in an average of 50% of Mainz 05's home and Borussia Dortmund's away games. My prediction is Over 2.5 Goals.
Both teams struggle in defence and concede on regular occasions. Mainz 05 failed to keep a clean sheet in 12% of home games, while Borussia Dortmund conceded in 24% of away games. On average, both teams score in 60% of Mainz 05's home and Borussia Dortmund's away games. My prediction is Both Teams to Score: Yes.
