Mainz vs Dortmund Betting Tip and Predictions. In the first match of Round 9 in German Bundesliga, Mainz host Dortmund.
Mainz started this season very solid and after 8 rounds they are standing at the 8th position with 12 points. 5 points less than their tonight’s opponent. Home side played well against teams with similar strengths as they are, but when they have been playing against stronger teams such as Bayern Muncih, Bayer Leverkusen or Schalke 04, they failed to take one single point, so the match against Borussia Dortmund could be a good chance for home team to finally take at least one point against team from the top of the table. Mainz have already beat Dormund last season at home 2-0 and they are looking for another good result against one of the best German football teams.
Dortmund started this season amazing with 5 consecutive wins, but in the last three Bundesliga matches they failed to win. Actually, visitors didn’t win in their last 5 matches in all competitions, so after the international break they will do their best to get back on the winning way. Their new coach Thomas Tuchel, who replaced Jürgen Klopp who joined Liverpool, was the coach of Mainz, so he knows many things about their opponent. It seems that Dormtmund are in the crisis in the recent period, so the next match will show us are they ready to stay in the race for the title.

Mainz vs Dortmund Betting Tip and Predictions
Without any doubt Borussia Dortmund is a favorite to win this game, but their recent performance is not at the high level. Home side will be fully motivated to take at least one point tonight. I expect an interesting match between Mainz vs Dortmund and both teams to score.
