Our prediction for this Bundesliga match:
Out-of-sorts Borussia Dortmund will be aiming to put an end to their eight-game winless run in the Bundesliga when they face Mainz at Opel Arena. The Millionaires suffered a shocking 2-1 loss to relegation strugglers Werder Bremen at their Signal-Iduna-Park at the weekend and, as a result, coach Peter Bosz got fired. New boss Peter Stoger is eager to mark his debut with a win over Mainz, but beating the Nullfunfer on the road is easier said than done. Borussia Dortmund have been struggling at the back of late and, taking everything into account, we do not believe that there is a big value in betting on the visitors. Sandro Schwarz’s men did well to hold Leipzig to a 2-2 draw at Red Bull Arena at the weekend and we predict that they are going to grab something from Wednesday’s football match against the out-of-form Millionaires.
Highlighted Player (Viktor Fischer):
Viktor Fischer is a professional football player who was born in Aarhus, Denmark on 9 June, 1994. Fischer used to play for several Danish clubs during his youth career (Lyseng, Viby, AGF, Midtylland) and in 2012 he made his senior debut for Eredivisie giants Ajax. The Dutch forward played his first game for Ajax on 20 October 2012 in a 3-3 draw and he scored his first goal for the Dutch outfit on 31 October 2012 against ONS Sneek in the KNVB Cup. Viktor is the grandson of former Danish football player Poul Pedersen. Both prefer to play on the wing, but Viktor Fisher is capable of playing as attacking midfielder or centre forward as well. It has to be noted that he scored ten goals in 23 appearances for Ajax in the 2012/2013 Eredivisie campaign. On 14 November, 2012 he made his Denmark debut in a friendly against Turkey. Fischer was widely regarded as one of Ajax’s hottest prospects and he eventually joined Premier League newcomers Middlesbrough in the summer of 2016.
Highlighted Team (Borussia Dortmund):
1909 by eighteen footballers from Dortmund. Die Schwarzgelben (The Black and Yellows) play their home games at Signal Iduna Park, but the stadium’s original name is Westfalenstadion. The capacity of Borussia’s home ground is 81,539 and it has to be noted that the stadium was opened in 1974. BVB have the highest average attendance in the world of football. Borussia Dortmund have won eight Bundesliga trophies, while clinching the German Cup title three times. However, the club’s biggest success came in 1997 when they outplayed Juventus in the Champions League final. Karl-Heinz Riedle scored a brace for BVB in the 3-1 win over Juve, with Lars Ricken finding the net in the title game as well. Borussia’s biggest rivals are Schalke 04 and the two teams square off against each other in the Revierderby.
