Dortmund got a vital three points with a 2-1 away victory against Mainz after trailing throughout the contest. Mainz took the lead in the 33rd minute when Nicolai Muller scored. But, Dortmund would fight back and would get their reward when Ivan Perisic brought them level with his first career goal in Bundesliga. Dortmund then would take the lead in the dying minute of the game when Lukasz Piszczek scored from a free kick clearance and gave Dortmund three points, which keeps them in the title picture.
This is what Dortmund needed badly. They had failed to win in their previous four fixtures. And with a vital Champions League fixture with Marseille on the horizon, a win was what Jurgen Klopp's side needed ahead of the fixture.
