Mainz Dedicates Dortmund Defeat To Recuperating Eagles Star

German bundesliga outfit FSV Mainz have dedicated Wednesday’s impressive 2-0 away win against Borussia Dortmund to their recuperating  Nigerian striker Taiwo Awoniyi.

The visitors took a big step towards remaining in the Bundesliga for another season courtesy of two goals from Jonathan Burkhardt and Jean-Philippe Mateta.

Mainz are now 15th on 34 points, five above the relegation playoff spot with two games remaining.

 

Awoniyi missed the game after suffering concussion in last Sunday’s 1-0 home loss against Augsburg.

Die Nullfünfer’s dedicated the important win to the 22-year-old who is also expected to miss Saturday’s clash against Werder Bremen.

“This win is for Taiwo #Awoniyi! 🙌

#UpTheMainz #BVBM05 ❤🤍,” the club wrote  on its official Twitter handle.
