Mainz Stun💥 Dortmund to Secure💪Retention 📹

Mainz guaranteed their place in next season's Bundesliga with a shock 2-1 win over Borussia Dortmund at Signal Iduna Park on Saturday.

Goals from Ridle Baku and Yoshinori Muto secured the visitors' first away win against Dortmund in the top flight, despite Maximilian Philipp halving the deficit.

The result moves Mainz six points clear of Wolfsburg, who occupy the relegation play-off place, while Dortmund must avoid defeat to Hoffenheim on the final day to make certain of a Champions League spot.

Mainz stunned RB Leipzig with a 3-0 win last time out and Baku's fine finish silenced the home fans only four minutes in, after they had honoured the retiring Roman Weidenfeller with a rousing tifo.

Muto made the most of slack defending to double the lead but Philipp's precise finish dragged a poor Dortmund back into the contest.

Peter Stoger's side dominated much of the final hour but created little by way of clear-cut chances for an equaliser, meaning they face a decisive visit to Rhein-Neckar-Arena next week, while Mainz can celebrate their survival.

Baku scored a late third in the win over Leipzig last week but he only needed four minutes to strike again on Saturday, rifling high into the net from 12 yards out after a brilliant backheel from Jean-Philippe Gbamin
