BVB put in a strong performance at home to Bayern last weekend but were unable to close the gap further in an enthralling 0-0 draw in Der Klassiker. Incidentally, fifth-placed Mainz were the side who reinvigorated Dortmund's title challenge by beating the Bundesliga leaders 2-1 on Matchday 24, and they come into this game in high spirits having also defeated FC Schalke 04 and Bayer 04 Leverkusen in recent weeks.
It will be an emotionally charged occasion for Dortmund coach Thomas Tuchel, who spent five years in charge of Mainz and was instrumental in establishing them as a top-flight side. His successor, Martin Schmidt, has overseen an excellent campaign so far this term and is looking to steer the 05ers into European competition next season.
