Football betting tips this weekend for Dortmund – Mainz 05

Borussia Dortmund will play to keep their second place in the Bundesliga when they host Mainz 05 on Wednesday night. In our football betting tips this weekend we are going to preview this fixture, so let’s go.


Bayern Munich are most probably going to win the title against Werder Bremen on Tuesday, so Dortmund can’t do anything to stop them anymore. What Die Borussen can do is keep the second place in the final standings. Three rounds before the end they are four points ahead of the third RB Leipzig.


In their last five games Borussia Dortmund are almost flawless. The only exception is the loss against Bayern Munich which decided the title race in favour of the Bavarians. More or less, Dortmund can be satisfied with their season, despite of losing the title again.


In the previous round Lucien Favre’s team won for a 20th time this season. Die Borussen visited Fortuna Dusseldorf and celebrated a 1-0 win. Erling Haland scored the only goal in the game in the 95th minute.


Mainz 05 are fighting to guarantee themselves at least one more season in the Bundesliga. At this moment they are 15th in the standings with 31 points, being three points ahead of the 16th Fortuna Dusseldorf. We don’t know if Mainz are good enough to rival Borussia Dortmund at the Signal Iduna Park, but you can be sure that they have a lot to play for right now.


In their last match Mainz suffered their 18th defeat for the season. Achim Beierlorzer’s team hosted Augsburg at the Opel Arena, but lost with 0-1. They have luck that right now they are not in the relegation zone.


These are our football betting tips this weekend for the Bundesliga fixture between Borussia Dortmund and Mainz 05 on Wednesday night. Can Mainz trouble Die Borussen? We hardly think so.
