Game is over and the final score is Dortmund 0–2 Mainz. Here is the match report.
- J. Burkardt (33′)
- J. Mateta (49′ PEN)
3′ Hazard shot wide out
Dortmund have started brightly. Hazard receives the ball from Piszczek and drags a shot wide of the left-hand post. Hakimi is fouled by Onisiwo on the flank shortly after.
15′ CLOSE! Witsel shot blocked
Dortmund work the ball out to Hakimi out on the right who lofts a cross in. Guerreiro nods it down at the far post for Witsel whose shot from inside the box is blocked! That’s the first half-chance of the game for Dortmund.
19′ Yellow Card! Piszczek booked
Piszczek gets booked for the foul on Onisiwo. He knew what he was doing.
33′ GOAL! Dortmund 0-1 Mainz (Burkardt)
This came from nothing! Mateta drops off and rolls the ball wide to Baku who crosses in first time. Burkardt ghosts into the area and powers a satisfying header into the bottom left corner. He pumps his fists in celebration!
49′ Penalty Goal! Dortmund 0-2 Mainz (Latza)
Burki makes two smart saves in a row, first from Mateta then from Onisiwo who has a pop from distance. The keeper can only push the ball as far as Latza though, who Hummels bundles over.
73′ Muller denies Hakimi’s free-kick
Hakimi is single-handedly trying to drag Dortmund back into this. Latza brings down Guerreiro in Mainz’s half and Hakimi’s free-kick is tipped over the crossbar by Muller! It was inches away from hitting the top right corner.
79′ Ardent conflict between Guerreiro and Latza
Things are starting to get a bit ill-tempered. Guerreiro is fouled by Latza and pokes Latza in the face. Naughty. He gets a yellow card.
