Mohamed Zidan has been in good scoring form since leaving Borussia Dortmund, and the Bundesliga leader will hope it doesn’t continue when he visits with current side Mainz on Saturday.

Zidan has netted in four consecutive games for Mainz since his winter transfer. The 30-year-old Egypt striker aims to become the first player to score in his first five games for a new club since Stuttgart striker Fredi Bobic in 1994.

His will not be the only familiar face between the sides.

Dortmund coach Juergen Klopp hopes to stretch the defending champion’s unbeaten league run to 18 games against his previous club.

And an eighth win in a row in all competitions would also keep Bayern Munich at bay.

Bayern faces a tricky game at Bayer Leverkusen, also Saturday.
