With Bayern Munich asserting the Bundesliga title for themselves earlier in the gameweek, for Borussia Dortmund, the remaining three encounters this season are all about a celebration of their season. While the side failed in its bid of walking away with the glistening trophy under its arms, the side has still engulfed its rapturous supporters in a season to be proud of.
Sitting clear in second place, Borussia Dortmund have given their supporters many special moments this season. From ripping apart sides and walking all over them courtesy of an unabated attacking unit to discovering gems like Haaland, the team has endured a season which has seen the side be lauded for its brand of football.
And they’ll be looking to build on their three match winning spin today when they come across a languishing Mainz 05 side. Although Mainz are currently the one spot abreast of relegation zone with three points keeping them adrift of the bottom three, the final three encounters could change the story for them with the side currently on a downward spiral in the points tally.
With the solitary win in their last five encounters, it’s become apparent that this Mainz team is one doomed for relegation. A horrid defence, the side will be blown apart by Borussia Dortmund today, a team they’ll completely fall apart and open up infront of.

In a period of peril, the trust of true players mange to stand tall amongst their counterparts and make themselves seen. And Mainz’s Florian Muller has done exactly that with the goal-keeper being the only reason that his side finds itself out of the bottom 3.
With three cleansheets in their last five fixtures now including the two shut downs on the spin, Borussia Dortmund have shown why they are such a well versed backline. The side’s consummate success this season has been a gift of the team’s backline, one which has accompanied the side’s attack seamlessly.
And at the fore of the team’s forefront of regaling their supporters in unbridled joy has been wingback Achraf Hakimi. The player has strung together a gargantuan 10 assists, ones which have seen him show his mettle as an attacking player as well.
