Our prediction for this Bundesliga match:
Following a thrilling 3-1 win over Leipzig, Borussia Dortmund will be looking to stay in the title race when they welcome Mainz at their Signal Iduna Park on Matchday 16. Edin Terzic’s troops have been producing fine performances in the Bundesliga ever since top scorer Erling Haland returned from injury, and, no doubt, the title-chasing hosts are high on spirits ahead of the visit of Mainz. Axel Witsel, who suffered an Achilles injury in the victory over Leipzig, misses the Mainz game.
Die Nullfunfer, on the other hand, aim to put an end to their three-game losing run in the German top flight, but given their shaky defence, anything but a routine home win would be a major surprise. The likes of Kunde Malong, Nebel, Tauer, and Kilian are all out of contention with injuries for the visiting team. In their last meeting at Signal Iduna Park Mainz shocked Borussia Dortmund, meaning that the hosts are hungry for revenge.
