Borussia Dortmund vs Mainz 05 / Bundesliga – The last Saturday’s match of the 29th round is important only for the home team. The guests from Mainz are positioned in the bottom half of table but on safe distance from the drop zone, while European positions are far above them. Borussia is still in the title race, where after a long period of dominance it now has one point fewer than leading Bayern. Borussia won their head-to-head played in the first part of season by 2-1.
Borussia Dortmund vs Mainz 05 begins 13.04.2019 at 18:30 CET
Borussia is no longer leading team in the Bundesliga table and now has one point fewer than leading Bayern. The change happened after derby played in the previous round when Borussia suffered a true debacle in Munich since it lost by 5-0. It could do so much more in the match as it had two points more than Bayern. If Borussia won it would make a key step to win the title but nowthey are definitely shaken and it is questionable have they recovered? It is clear that manger Favre will make changes in the team that so badly underperformed in Munich; Zagado returns on the bench and Weigl goes in defence, while M. Gotze should play from the first minute.
Probable lineups Borussia Dortmund: Burki – M. Wolf, Akanji, Weigl, Diallo – Witsel, Delaney – Sancho, Reus, Bruun Larsen – M. Gotze
Unlike its host Mainz soundly won in the previous round and in that way has put an end to four-game losing streak. Mainz didn’t draw in last 10 matches and after winning a match it usually losses the following one. It was like that after winning Schalke but they hope that will not be the case after winning Freiburg in the previous round. Mainz played well and it outclassed the guests by 5-0, where everything was practically resolved after just half an hour of match. Boetius and Mateta played excellently and took part in scoring of all goals. Due to injuries out of action are Bungert and Quasion.
Probable lineups Mainz 05: F. Muller – Donati, A. Hack, Niakhate, Aaron – Kunde – Gbamin, Latza – Boetius – Onisiwo, Mateta
Borussia Dortmund vs Mainz 05 PICK
Borussia is under huge pressure and defeat in the previous round has left a scar, but nevertheless we believe they can play a good match. Mainz is fairly disinterested in the outcome although they won in the previous round, but they are guests now and the rival is far stronger.
Pick: Asian handicap -1.5 Borussia Dortmund
Odds: 1.88 at bet365 (down to 1.78 can be played)
