Borussia Dortmund played against Mainz this Saturday in front of the Yellow Wall for the Bundesliga. Trying to forget about the humiliating 5-0 defeat against Bayern Munich, the hosts did well. English youth Jadon Sancho scored two first-half goals as Dortmund beat Mainz 2-1. Quaison scored for the visitors. With the triumph at home, Dortmund regained the lead in the German League. They have now 66 points, two ahead of their rivals from Munich. Just a reminder that the Bavarians will play against Fortuna Dusseldorf away on Sunday. Mainz have 33 points and are currently the 12th on the table.

Dortmund put in a very good first half against Mainz. They completely dominated the match and could have scored more. Sancho’s personal show started at 17 minutes. Mario Gotze got the ball down the right and crossed it to the English jewel to fire Dortmund ahead of the scoring. 1-0 Borussia Dortmund. Only seven minutes later, and one became two. This time, it was time for Delaney to deliver a pass to Sancho. The ball even deflected off Mainz defense before swinging the nets. 2-0 Dortmund.

After that, Dortmund kinda slowed down the pace in the game. After the break, it looked like another game. Seemed like it was Mainz who was in fact fighting for the Bundesliga. They came back up so much better than Dortmund and ended up discounting through Quaison. Things should have gone worse if it wasn’t for a certain goalkeeper. Roman Burki. He simply closed the goal, making a three-time save, somehow managing to keep the ball off the goal line, with 87 on the clock.

After facing so much criticism, Dortmund knew how to suffer, and throw in all the pressure to Bayern Munich tomorrow. The Bundesliga title race is as tight as the Premier League one. And that’s great! I hope they can end Bayern’s hegemony in Germany though. Come on, Dortmund!
