Mainz 05 host Borussia Dortmund in the Bundesliga on Saturday.

Two of the teams in the top seven of the Bundesliga clash on Saturday as Mainz 05 take on last year's runners-up Borussia Dortmund.

Dortmund recovered from three consecutive defeats with a 3-1 victory over Napoli in the Champions League but they must start winning again in the league.

Mainz are on a good run of form, which includes three wins from four, but they will still need to be at their best to beat a rejuvenated Dortmund side.

For the hosts, Christian Wetklo could return to the lineup following his suspension in place of Loris Karius.

Manuel Friedrich should return at centre-back having not been registered for the Champions League, which could see Sebastian Kehl drop back out of the team with Sven Bender moving back into midfield.
