Borussia Dortmund's faint title hopes might be over by the time they face Mainz on Wednesday night, but a second-place finish isn't guaranteed either. Read my match preview, for the best betting tips and correct score predictions for this fixture.

Borussia Dortmund vs Mainz Betting Tips

Dortmund needed a stoppage-time strike by the returning Erling Haaland to help beat Fortuna Dusseldorf 1-0 this past weekend.

Haaland, who missed their last two games with a knee injury, is expected to start in midweek. The 19-year-old has 11 Bundesliga goals already this term. He's likely to be supported by Jadon Sancho and either Thorgan Hazard or Julian Brandt in Lucien Favre's 3-4-3 formation.

Dusseldorf twice hit the woodwork and were unfortunate not to earn a result, though Dortmund's persistence proved pivotal in sealing all three points. Mats Hummels was particularly busy in central defence: winning seven of 10 duels, while racking up five tackles, four clearances and two interceptions too.

Mainz meanwhile, lost 1-0 at home to Augsburg on Sunday. That was despite dominating possession (66%) and having far more shots (17 to Augsburg's 9) over the 90 minutes. It's their third defeat in five games and leaves them no closer to safety, with rivals Dusseldorf and Bremen three points behind.

A saving grace in their favour relates to goal difference. They would avoid the drop and a possible relegation play-off, should either side finish level on points with them after MD34 is concluded.

However, suffering a comprehensive defeat could swing the momentum in either direction.

Fullback Daniel Brosinski was the best player in their slender defeat this past weekend. They'll certainly need him and the rest of their backline, to deliver a diligent defensive showing to frustrate BVB throughout.

However, achieving such defensive focus nonstop for 90 minutes against one of the league's best is easier said than done. Hertha and Dusseldorf can both attest to that, which is why I'm backing a Dortmund win for this fixture.
