Wolfsburg vs Mainz 05 Match Prediction

By William Hall

The Bundesliga sees two of this season's early strugglers go head to head this weekend as Wolfsburg welcome Mainz to the Volkswagen Arena. Although Wolfsburg have lost just one game in their last four matches, they have drawn the other three showing they are struggling to put teams to the sword. Mainz come into this one of the back of a win after seeing of Hertha Berlin 1-0 on home soil. Back to back wins will be on the radar for the first time this season. Read on for a full match preview complete with all our best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Although Wolfsburg have had a lot of draws recently both at home and away, I think that draw away to Bayern Munich in their last game would have filled them with a lot of confidence, which could see them flourish this weekend. They have been struggling to see off teams which would have been frustrating for everyone at the club, but coming from 2-0 behind to Bayern Munich and getting a point is a fantastic achievement and one they should be looking to build on this weekend. Mainz have always struggled on the road in the Bundesliga, and I can see that happening again this weekend.

The side have won just once in their last 15 away Bundesliga matches which shows where their biggest problem lays. On another day, you would say they may get something out of Wolfsburg, but with the home side coming off the back of possibly a season-changing result, I can only see one winner in this one.

Wolfsburg Preview

Although Wolfsburg have lost just twice this season, they have drawn three of their other games meaning they have struggled to push their way up the Bundesliga table early on. They come into this game off the back of a 2-2 draw away to Bayern Munich, which could be one of the best performances of their season. Considering they were 2-0 at halftime, Wolfsburg didn't stop believing and shocked the Allianz thanks to two second-half goals from Arnold and Didavi. If they put on the same kind of show they did in the second half again Munich, they should be able to secure all three points this weekend. At home, Wolfsburg have struggled to pick up many points on home soil having drawn three and lost two of their last five games. This looks like their best chance in a long time to get all three points, which is what they will be looking to do.

Wolfsburg Team News

Wolfsburg have four players out this weekend with Yannick Gerhardt (thigh injury), Jeffrey Bruma (knee injury), John Anthony Brooks (thigh injury) and Mario Gomez (ankle injury) all sidelined.

Mainz 05 Preview

Mainz also come into this one off the back of a positive result, beating Hertha Berlin by a goal to nil at home. They will be looking to follow that up this weekend, but things do look well up against them having won just once in their last fifteen games on the road. With both sides on the same number of points at this stage of the season, it's an excellent opportunity to get the upper hand on your league rivals. Mainz have been struggling for goals so far this season, hitting the back of the net just four times in six games. They will need to try and sort out this problem as soon as possible if they are to stay in the Bundesliga come the end of the season.

Mainz 05 Team News

Mainz have seven absenties for the visit to Wolfsburg this weekend with Alexander Hack (ankle injury), Emil Berggren (muscle injury), Gaetan Bussman (groin injury), Jannik Huth (knee injury), Niko Bungert (thigh injury), Philipp Klement (thigh injury) and Karim Onisiwo (rib injury) all out.
