A nice series of wins can climb the team in the standings and is now very felicitous moment for new success. For the game against Mainz, Klopp hardly afford to make many changes in the composition. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang will lead the attack after his two goals in the door of Freiburg last weekend. The other two strikers - Ciro Immobile and Adrian Ramos will stay on the bench and they will appear in the second half if there is a negative result. Klopp will choose between Sokratis and Piszczek on the right back. With injures in the camp of Borussia are Kevin Grosskreutz, Sebastian Kehl, Sven Bender, Erik Durm and Jakub Blaszczykowski.
After sonorous victory with 5:0 over Paderborn at the start of the spring part of the championship, the team of Mainz recorded a draw with Hanover (1: 1) and lost at home to Hertha (0:2). The boys of Kasper Hjulmand must improve their level in order not to go dangerously close to the relegation zone. In autumn Mainz defeated Borussia Dortmund with 2:0 in their stadium and now will try to get at least a partial success. Danish coach of Mainz can not rely on the injured Jairo Samperio, Christoph Moritz and Todor Nedelev . Because of his red card in the game against Hertha - goalkeeper Loris Carius misses the match and will be replaced by Stefanos Kapino under the frame. Mainz will struggle with a negative trend in this visit. The Reds have not won in their last eight away matches in Bundesliga and will try to change this fact.
Both teams are leaning against the wall and will not want to lose. Borussia scoring difficult at home and Mainz almost certainly will be closed and will rely on counterattacks. Given the importance of the game is unlikely to see many hits in the game.
