Bundesliga – Mainz 05 vs Borussia Dortmund Betting Preview

Mainz have had arguably the most inconsistent start to the season as they have won four and lost four of their opening eight matches but they will also be happy with their start as they currently occupy 8th position. Mainz have looked strong against the weaker sides in the league but once they face tough opposition, it seems they do not have what it takes as demonstrated by their losses to Schalke, Leverkusen and Bayern in September.

Dortmund had an unbelievable start to the season after making it 15 straight victories in all competitions against Bayer Leverkusen but the signs were there that that type of form would not last as they also conceded plenty of goals. Since that victory of Leverkusen, they have now failed to register a win in their last five matches including draws to Hoffenheim and Darmstadt who are in the bottom half of the league and a devastating 5-1 defeat to fierce rivals Bayern Munich.

They have still been scoring throughout this win-less spell so that will not be their worry as Aubameyang seems to be firing on all cylinders but with a defence that has conceded in all but one of their last eleven matches, they will need to step it up if they intend on challenging for the title as they are already seven points a drift from Bayern.

Mainz 05 vs Borussia Dortmund Head to Head Statistics

13/02/15 BUN Borussia Dortmund vs Mainz 05 4 : 2
20/09/14 BUN Mainz 05 vs Borussia Dortmund 2 : 0
19/04/14 BUN Borussia Dortmund vs Mainz 05 4 : 2
30/11/13 BUN Mainz 05 vs Borussia Dortmund 1 : 3
20/04/13 BUN Borussia Dortmund vs Mainz 05 2 : 0

These two German sides have faced each other just 18 times throughout their history with Borussia Dortmund coming out the better after winning nine matches to Mainz’s three.

In the nine meetings in which Mainz have been the home side, Dortmund have still slightly edged Mainz after beating them in four of the nine games whilst Mainz won just three fixtures.

Using head to head statistics alone, it would indicate that Borussia Dortmund will be victorious come the full-time whistle on Friday night.

18/09/15 BUN Mainz 05 vs Hoffenheim 3 : 1

Although Mainz have won just two of their last five matches, they are in decent form as their two defeats have came against Bayern Munich and an away trip to Bayer Leverkusen. The remaining game was a club friendly which means that they have actually won the two matches that have been expected of them.

Borussia Dortmund are in terrible form and are now five games without a win. They may have scored seven goals in their last five matches which isn’t a bad return but when you concede eleven goals in the same five matches, it doesn’t make for good reading. And apart from their defeat to rivals Bayern Munich, all of the sides they have faced have been weaker opposition.

Mainz 05 Team News:

Mainz look set to be without Fabian Frei for this match through injury whilst Gonzalo Jara has been rumoured to have only returned from International duty on Thursday which could see Bengtsson start at full-back.

Borussia Dortmund Team News:

Borussia Dortmund’s only injury concern heading into this match lies with Marcel Schmelzer as he is likely to miss the match due to his strained thigh muscle.

Mainz 05 vs Borussia Dortmund Average Goals Per Game Statistics

In the 9 meetings that have taken place in Mainz, the games have seen just 20 goals scored meaning that there has been an average goals per game of 2.22.

Both sets of data suggest that the game on Friday evening should see a minimum of two goals in the match.

Mainz 05 vs Borussia Dortmund Free Sports Bets, Tips & Predictions

It is difficult to predict a result in this match as both teams are very inconsistent with Mainz winning four and losing four of their eight games whilst Dortmund could blow away any team but their defence has been dire so far this season. No matter the result in this match, I can only see goals as both teams have been scoring and conceding plenty of goals this season. For these reasons, my banker is going to be for there to be over 2.5 goals int he game as well as both teams scoring.

My saver for this game is great value in my opinion as Dortmund have conceded the first goal in their last five straight matches and in seven of their last eight. Mainz will want to hit Dortmund early as many other teams have done this season and with Mainz scoring three in their last outing in the league, I fancy them to capitalize on Dortmund’s poor defensive record.
