  • Venue: MEWA ARENA (Mainz)

Following a remarkable 4:3 victory against Augsburg on Sunday, Dortmund faces an always tricky-looking Bundesliga tie at the MEWA Arena when they take on Mainz.

Still down in sixth sport, the visitors will need to improve defensively if they are to take care of business against a Mainz side struggling for wins this season.

Mainz vs Borussia Dortmund Betting Tips: Over 2.5 goals

Both sides managed positive results on their return to Bundesliga action this past weekend, with Mainz picking up a point on their travels at Stuttgart. However, having now failed to win any of their last five league matches, the home side will be keen to put the pressure on a Dortmund defence that retains obvious vulnerabilities.

Winning just one of their last eight at home, Mainz have struggled to turn draws into wins, with five of those eight games finishing level. However, they have lost just three of their last 20 home league matches and will fancy their chances of unsettling a ragged Dortmund defence.

Pegged back three times in their remarkable 4:3 win against Augsburg, BVB have been desperately poor on their travels this season, losing five of their last six on the road with 15 goals conceded. Dortmund have now conceded 17 goals in their nine most recent league matches.

Dortmund does have a good record at this venue in recent years, though, winning each of their last five matches since 2017. However, considering their recent away record and defensive frailties, it´s hard to back them with much confidence here.

Instead, we´ll bank on the over 2.5 goals market, with the visitors seeing that outcome in seven of their nine most recent league matches. Mainz have seen a similar outcome in three of six home games this season.
