our main tip:
Dortmund 3+ Goals

Bor. Dortmund vs FSV Mainz 16.01.2021

Borussia Dortmund have begun 2021 in style and they seem to have completely moved on from the sacking of Lucien Favre with two victories on the bounce. Despite their struggles in finding the back of the net in the first 45 minutes, they found a way to win convincingly by the end of 90 minutes.

They are fourth on the log and they will view the game against Mainz as an opportunity to apply some pressure on the teams above them on the log. The former Bundesliga champions will be counting on red-hot Erling Haaland who has scored a record 25 league goals in 25 games to put the visitors to the sword.

Mainz have an uphill battle on their hands against Dortmund. They are clearly short on confidence and their form on the road is nothing to write home about. They are not expected to put much of a resistance against Edin Terzić’s men. Dortmund will most likely emerge victorious, but we will back them to do it convincingly, with at least three goals plundered by the host.
