The biggest news of the week in the Bundesliga was Marco Reus signing a long term contract with Borussia Dortmund. Reus can now put all the speculation of a move abroad behind him and focus on getting Dortmund out of the relegation mess they are currently in. Borussia take on Mainz in Signal Iduna Park , a win moves Dortmund out of the relegation zone and back up the table. Mainz themselves are in danger of falling back into a relegation battle after a run of just one win in twelve games. Mainz are reliant on Okazaki up front but they have had players chip in across the midfield with goals and are one of the top scrorers in the bottom half of the Bundesliga.
Borussia Dortmund have Marco Reus back from injury and Aubeymeyang back from the African Cup of Nations , the return of Reus is the big news for Borussia as the German starlet is the key man for the club. Jurgen Klopp will be hoping that with Reus return Borussia Dortmund can not only move up the table but can go father in the Champions League. Aubeymeyang and Immobile need to form some sort of partnership up front and with Blazakowski also back to full fitness and chipping in with goals from midfield Borussia could see return to the form that brought them to a Champions League final a couple of years back. It all starts by getting things going in the league though and that started last week against Freiburg.
Take Borussia Dortund -1 here as Dortund prove their quality is still there and their struggles for form were just temporary.
