• Dortmund haven't lost any of their last seven matches against Mainz (W6, D1); winning each of the last five. The last Mainz win was four years ago: Adam Szalai scored the only goal as FSV claimed a 1-0 home victory on April 10th 2010.
  • Mainz have never won a Bundesliga game in Dortmund (D4, L3).
  • FSV have never scored more than one goal in a match against BVB (a total of 11 in 15 games).
  • Borussia are unbeaten in five games (4 wins) and won nine of their last 12 league matches.
  • BVB have kept a clean sheet in five of their last eight Bundesliga games.
  • This is the only meeting between two sides that both won last weekend.
