Borussia Dortmund welcome Mainz to the Signal Iduna Park, looking to bring their winning run in their Bundesliga (BL) H2Hs to four games.
The hosts have racked up three consecutive league victories ahead of this match, with all eight of their goals scored across those games coming in the second half of play. In turn, 67% (31) of 46 BL home goals Dortmund have netted so far this season arrived after the halftime break. Arguably one of the best home teams in Germany’s top-tier, Lucien Favre’s men have won 11 of 15 BL fixtures on home turf (D1, L1), with seven of those triumphs yielding at least a four-goal margin. ‘Die Borussen’ should improve their impressive home record here, as they take on a side they’ve beaten in seven of their last eight top-flight home H2Hs (L1).
Meanwhile, the visitors have struggled to find their footing since the league’s restart, picking up just a single triumph in six post-pandemic fixtures (D2, L3). All four of their results (win/loss) during that six-game sequence saw the winner on the day keep a clean sheet and find the opening goal in the first half of play. Away from home, the ‘Karnevalsverein’ have endured mixed fortunes since the calendar flipped (W2, D2, L2), with each of those four results yielding a margin of at least two goals. Mainz’s chances of avoiding defeat in this encounter will depend on whether or not they can find the opening goal. Indeed, Achim Beierlorzer’s side returned only one point from six BL away matches in which they’ve conceded the opener.
