Borussia Dortmund just about kept themselves in the race for the Bundesliga title with a 2:1 win over Mainz over the weekend. The win, while not as impressive as Bayern’s triumph over Dusseldorf, still ensured that BVB are just a point behind the Bavarians.
The ratings from Kicker show that England forward Jadon Sancho, who scored both of BVB’s goals, and Swiss goalkeeper Roman Burki, who made an amazing late triple save to deny the visitors, were the best Dortmund players on show. The worst were Diallo and Brun-Larsen, both of whom got 5’s for their showing.
A slightly improved performance from the 5:0 thrashing the week before, but perhaps not at the level that you’d want from a title-winning side at this stage of the season.
Thomas Delaney and Reus the best of the rest- they were also the players who covered the most distance for BVB in this game. Delaney had 13.4 km, while Reus did 12.75
