Half-Time Report: Borussia Dortmund edging Mainz 05

Borussia Dortmund are leading Mainz 05 2-1 at half time in the Bundesliga.

Borussia Dortmund are just about on top of a scintillating Bundesliga encounter against Mainz 05 and lead 2-1 at the break.

The home side flew out of the blocks and almost went ahead after just three minutes as Marco Reus rifled a free kick from 30 yards that flew past Loris Karius but came back off the post.

Just three minutes later, however, Dortmund were in front. Milos Jojic continued his excellent form since signing for the club, with his shot from the edge of the box clipping teammate Oliver Kirch on the way in.

Mainz refused to let Dortmund's strong start get to them and they were level on 14 minutes. Shinji Okazaki struck an effort that was going well wide before it took a huge deflection off Mats Hummels and past Mitchell Langerak.

A frantic opening 20 minutes was complete not long after the equaliser, with Robert Lewandowski latching on to Henrikh Mkhitaryan's pass to finish calmly for 2-1.

It could have been even better at the break for Dortmund, but Reus was guilty of spurning a great chance from the edge of the box after meeting Lukasz Piszczek's cut-back.
