Mateta goal enough for Mainz to win 1-0 in Duesseldorf
DUESSELDORF, Germany (AP) — French striker Jean-Philippe Mateta scored to give Mainz a 1-0 win at Fortuna Duesseldorf in the Bundesliga on Friday, lifting the side eighth ahead of the rest of the 13th round.
Mateta, who joined Mainz from Le Havre in the offseason, timed his run for Robin Quaison's through ball perfectly, and the 21-year-old eluded Duesseldorf defender Robin Bormuth before shooting. Michael Rensing got his hand to the ball but couldn't stop it bobbling inside the far post.
