Mainz vs Wolfsburg Predictions and Betting Tips
Mainz vs Wolfsburg Key Stats
- Only 38% of Wolfsburg’s matches in the Bundesliga this season have contained at least three goal
- Less than three goals have been scored in 54% of Mainz’s Bundesliga fixtures this season.
- Wolfsburg have the second-best defensive record away from home in the Bundesliga this season.
Stopped in the tracks
Mainz’s unbeaten run came to an end last time out, as they were beaten by Stuttgart on the road. One result can change things quite drastically, all of sudden, Saturday’s hosts have gone from being unbeaten in four to now being without a win in three, though they remain a side that isn’t easy to beat, especially at home.
Without being prolific winners, Die Nullfünfer have quietly picked up regular points at home, losing just one out of seven at Mewa Arena. Such a record means that they should be confident ahead of this clash with a Wolfsburg side that has won just one out of four away from home in the league of late.
Visitors on the slide
As was the case for the hosts last weekend, a single result has put a different slant on things for Florian Kohfeldt’s men. They’ve gone from being unbeaten in three to being winless in two, while they arrive at this point off the back of tasting defeat on home soil last time out, conceding a worrying total of three goals in the process.
In terms of points collected, Wolfsburg are one of the Bundesliga’s better travellers right now, but that doesn’t mean that they’ve been tearing it up on their travels in recent weeks. In fact, things have started to go awry for the visitors on the road, as they’ve won just one of their last four, losing two of the other three.
Mainz vs Wolfsburg Predictions
From a betting point of view, a lack of goals makes sense. Mainz have a solid defensive record at home, conceding more than once in just one out of seven, while they’ve kept three clean sheets too. Wolfsburg are also one of the better defensive sides on the road, with only Freiburg keeping more travelling clean sheets in the Bundesliga this season. Unsurprisingly, neither the hosts nor the visitors have made a habit of being involved in high-scoring games week in, week out, so ‘Under 2.5 Goals’ appeals at eye-catching odds.
