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.
