Clinging to a two-point lead over 31-time defending champions Bayern Munich. Borussia Dortmund (22-4-7, 70 points) aim to seal their first Bundesliga crown since 2012. However, their final opponents for the 2021-22 season will be no pushovers as Mainz seek to conclude their season in a positive note by claiming the scalp of one of the top teams in the league. A win – coupled by a Bayern Munich draw or loss – would guarantee Dortmund of the title.
On the flipside, if they lose or draw against Mainz while Bayern emerged victorious in their last match, the latter will capture the title by goal difference. In their last game against Augsburg, the duo of Sebastian Haller and Julian Brandt helped Dortmund secure the victory and moved ahead of Bayern Munich which lost 1-3 to Red Bull Leipzig. Dortmund’s offense has been balanced all season long with eight players scoring at least six goals.
Players to Watch: Donyell Malen (9 goals, 6 assists); Julian Brandt (8 goals, 9 assists); Jude Bellingham (8 goals, 5 assists); Youssoufa Moukoko (7 goals, 4 assists); Sebastian Haller (7 goals, 3 assists); Giovanni Reyna (7 goals).
Currently in ninth position, Mainz (12-9-12, 45 points) have been able to keep themselves in the middle table despite inconsistencies on the pitch. After producing an upset against Bayern Munich, Mainz have lost their last four games. In their last match against Stuttgart, they allowed four consecutive goals after scoring the opener. The losses dampened their aspirations of contending for a spot in the European tournaments and they now head to the 2023-24 season with a lot of things to think about, particularly their lineup. Karim Onisiwo and Marcus Ingvartsen have been the main offensive weapons for Mainz. For the season and they will be needing the duo to find ways to score in order to stand a chance against the formidable Dortmund XI.
Players to Watch: Karim Onisiwo (9 goals, 3 assists); Marcus Ingvartsen (9 goals); Lee Jae-sung (7 goals, 3 assists); Ludovic Ajorque (6 goals, 1 assist); Aaron Martin (5 goals, 3 assists).
