Wolfsburg and Mainz 05 will go head to head at the Volkswagen Arena

Wolfsburg and Mainz 05 will go head to head at the Volkswagen Arena in a match from the 23th round of the Bundesliga on Sunday. In today’s football forecast we will offer you a short preview of this game.


Wolfsburg are 9th in the Bundesliga with 31 points, but they have a serious room for improvement in this regard. The Wolves are just 5 points behind the 6th Schalke 04 and the Europa League zone, so a better consistency is all they need right now. They are showing signs of improvement lately, winning 7 points out of 9 in the last three rounds.


Last week Wolfsburg had a difficult trip to Hoffenheim, but they celebrated a 3-2 win at the PreZero Arena. It was an one man show from the Dutch striker Wout Weghorst, who showed some profilic form and scored a hattrick. At this moment Weghorst already have 10 goals scored in the Bundesliga this season.


Agianst Mainz 05 Wolfsburg will be without the injured William and Ignacio Camacho, while Max Arnold and Marin Pongracic are suspended.


Mainz 05 need points right now and it’s pretty obvious when you look at the standings. Right now Mainz are 15th in the league with 22 points, but they need to win some more games in order to be sure in their survival. Mainz’ problem is that in the last five rounds they have won just once – against Hertha BSC.


In the previous round Mainz 05 made their first draw for the season in the Bundesliga. Achim Beierlorzer’s boys hosted Schalke 04 at the Opel Arena and the game ended without any goals scored – 0-0.


That’s our football forecast and preview for the Bundesliga fixture between Wolfsburg and Mainz 05 on Sunday. The Wolves are the better team and they play at home, so they are favourites to take the win here.
