Within five minutes after coming on as a substitute, Hungary international striker ADAM SZALAI narrowed the gap for with his fourth goal of the season in all competitions for FSV 05 Mainz but the current Bundesliga table-toppers would come no closer.

After a run of seven consecutive wins in the Bundesliga and eight overall to start the 2010-11 season, FSV 05 Mainz fall in the second round of the Deutsche Fussball Bund Pokal and have dropped two of their last three contests in all competitions heading into a weekend class with second place Borussia Dortmund at home in the Stadion am Bruchweg.
