Borussia Dortmund can end their 11-year wait for Bundesliga glory this weekend when they take to, what will undoubtably be a decibel-defying Westfalenstadion. ‘The Yellow Wall’ will provide a cacophonous backdrop to a nerve-jangling affair, with Dortmund’s fate very much in their own hands.

Following Bayern Munich’s slip-up against RB Leipzig in their penultimate match of the campaign, the pendulum has dramatically swung in Dortmund’s favour, and they are now just 90 minutes away from wrestling the Meisterschale off their Der Klassiker rivals — a scenario that seemed unlikely when they squandered a 97th-minute equaliser to 10-man Stuttgart last month.

You would have to go back to the Jurgen Klopp-Robert Lewandowski era for the last time BVB tasted title glory, and now they have a chance to smash Bayern’s monopoly on the division. However, Dortmund, as we know, have a seemingly innate propensity to waste chances of glory — Edin Terzic will be making sure his side don’t follow that recent trend.

Mainz may prove an awkward opponent, but Bo Svensson’s men have lost their last four games on the trot. With confidence low and no chance of relegation or Europe, Dortmund will feel they have they have the psychological edge and motivation to get the job done this weekend.

Borussia Dortmund vs Mainz match stats

Randal Kolo Muani (11), Jamal Musiala (10) and Alassane Plea (nine) have graced the Bundesliga with exhibitions of playmaker wizardry this term, but none can hold a candle to Raphael Guerreiro in 2022/23, with the versatile Portuguese registering the most assists of any player in the division (12).

As for goalscorers. Well, incredibly, Sebastien Haller, Julian Brandt and Donyell Malen are Dortmund’s joint-top scorers in the league this season with only nine goals each. No Bundesliga-winning side has ever had a top goalscorer with fewer than 11 goals to their name (Adolfo Valencia and Mehmet Scholl both bagged 11 for Bayern in 1993/94, while Stefan Kuntz netted 11 for Kaiserslautern in 1990/91).
