Borussia Dortmund vs Mainz Prediction: Bundesliga Match | 27.05.2023
Coronation day could come at Borussia Dortmund on Saturday, as a victory will secure the first Bundesliga title since 2012. Mainz will be the visitors looking to spoil the party, but they come into this fixture having lost each of their last four matches.
Bayern Munich’s ten-year dominance in the Bundesliga looks set to come to an end this weekend, as Borussia Dortmund could be crowned German champions for the first time since 2012. It has been an excellent season for the team, as they have kicked on this term, despite having lost Erling Haaland to Manchester City last summer. Dortmund has been excellent over recent weeks, as they have recorded three successive wins to move within a victory of winning the top-flight title.
They were playing under intense pressure last weekend against Augsburg, as they would have been aware that a win would put the destination of the title in their hands. However, they rose to that pressure in excellent fashion in the second half. Sebastien Haller netted twice for Dortmund, while Julian Brandt finished the scoring in the 94th minute.
Mainz could be the ideal team to come up against this weekend, as their players already appear to have downed tools. Their push for a European place came to an end last weekend, as they suffered a fourth successive defeat in the Bundesliga, but they could yet end the campaign as high as eighth in the overall standings.
Defensively, they have been really poor since landing a 3-1 home win over Bayern Munich. In their previous four matches, they have 13 goals and scored just three. Last weekend, they were thumped 4-1 in their final home game of the season by Stuttgart.
Borussia Dortmund vs Mainz Head to Head
Dortmund boasts an excellent record in this fixture, as they have won each of their last four fixtures against Mainz. The most recent of those was a 2-1 win in January. However, they have landed just one win in their previous three home matches against their rivals this weekend.
Borussia Dortmund vs Mainz Prediction
It has been an excellent season for Dortmund, and we fully expect them to end the campaign as German champions. Mainz’s recent form is a massive concern, and we could see the party getting underway on Saturday following a comfortable 3-0 win for the hosts.
