Borussia Dortmund vs Mainz 05 – October 16 (Bundesliga)

Borussia Dortmund will have close to 70,000 fans at the Signal Iduna Park for this game, in what will be a big boost for the players. But with the team dealing with so many injury problems at the moment, the game against Mainz could prove to be a difficult one.
