Mainz or Draw

Bo Svenson has embarked Mainz into their joint-longest unbeaten run for over a decade. During this period they delayed the title celebrations at the Allianz Arena and jolted Eintracht Frankfurt's top-four ambitions. Borussia Dortmund are next on their agenda, against whom they are unbeaten in three H2H meetings. With Edin Teriz's men fatigued by their midweek DFB Pokal final victory and marred by injuries to first-team options, Mainz will fancy their chances at the Opel Arena.

Total Goals: Over 2.5

Matches involved Borussia Dortmund have seen 3.5 goals on average during the course of the 2020/21 Bundesliga season. This form has seen them involved in 23 fixtures with three or more goals. The average goals per match involving Mainz 05 stand at 2.7, which falls to 2.4 for their home fixtures. They stand as the most conservative side, with only five matches seeing the Over 2.5 come true at the Opel Arena. However, with Der BVB proving time and time again that they can make their rivals pay, and Mainz coming back from behind to secure the points, expect an exciting goal scoring fixture on Sunday.

Both Teams to Score: Yes

In three of their last four home fixtures, both teams have scored with Mainz claiming the points on offer. This happened with the Carnival Club coming back from a deficit in the first half. Against Dortmund, they will come face to face with the Bundesliga's second-highest scorers, who have managed 2+ goals in five successive away matches. With Erling Haaland, Jude Bellingham and Jadon Sancho amongst the goals,  expect the scorers to have a busy outing.

Dortmund vs RB Leipzig: Team News and Match Preview

Mainz 05

After struggling at the start of the 2020/21 campaign, Mainz have flipped the script and ensured German top-flight football continuity for another year. Bo Svenson has to be credited for their change in fortunes as they sit comfortably in 12th place and have secured survival. To Svenson's credit, he managed this after letting go topscorer Jean-Philippe Mateta to Crystal Palance in January. The void left by Mateta has been filled by Robin Quaison and co, with goals coming from all parts of the pitch. However, Quaison needs special praise as the Swede has made himself counted against top rivals, netting against Dortmund in the reverse fixture and the 2-1 win over Bayern Munich.

Borussia Dortmund

The Borussia Dortmund hierarchy will be replacing Edin Terzic with Marco Rose at the end of the season. Although the caretaker boss has given ample reasoning for a long term contract, especially after securing the DFB Pokal title at RB Leipzig's expense. To his credit, Terzic has managed this with all the media nonsense surrounding Erling Haaland and Jadon Sancho. There is this question of UEFA Champions League qualification as well, which Dortmund are looking to secure at Eintracht Frankfurt's expense. Erling Haaland, Marco Reus and Jadon Sancho are available to see them through the final two fixtures but the club is facing a shortfall in other areas with six first-team players out with injuries.
