Wolfsburg – Wolves need to show more hunger?

For a team not quite assured of their spot on next season’s Bundesliga roster, the performance – and, in particular, the result – last time out was rather damning. A crushing 6-1 loss on the road in Dortmund their heaviest of a season which has contained 17. That figure is ten more than in the entirety of the previous campaign, which saw them secure a return to the Champions League via fourth place.

With four rounds of this season still to navigate, the Wolves hold a six point buffer on 16th-placed Stuttgart and the relegation play-off, which might explain last week’s complacent showing at Signal Iduna Park. Their reality, however, is they still need a few more points to be certain of avoiding the drop. Yet their form, with four defeats in their last five (W1), implies a team content with crawling towards that objective.

Key Stat: The Wolves have alternated between winning and lose across their five previous outings at the Volkswagen Arena. So, having cruised to a 4-0 win last time here against second-from-bottom Arminia Bielefeld, could an eighth home Bundesliga defeat of the season (W6 D2) be on the cards?

Mainz – Wretched away record dampens 05’ers appeal?

The prospect of the 05’ers playing in Europe next term has all but been quashed, last week’s goalless draw at home to struggling Struggart leaving Bo Svensson’s charges some six points adrift of the top-seven with only twelve points up for grabs. If all four remaining fixtures were at their MEWA Arena, where they are among the strongest hosts in Germany this season, they would have a fighting chance. Alas, they are not.

Throughout 2021-22, Mainz have seriously toiled on their travels. Of their 39 points after 30 games, only eight (or 21%) came from away fixtures. They are currently winless on the road since edging Arminia Bielefeld 2-1 on 30 October, and from their ten subsequent away outings accrued a measly two of a possible 30 points. All this despite regularly finding the net, doing so in 11 of 12 previous Bundesliga away games.

Key Stat: Both teams have scored in 11 of Mainz’s previous 12 Bundesliga away games, with eight of the 05’ers 11 Bundesliga defeats away from home this season coming despite scoring at least once.

Wolfsburg Vs Mainz Betting Advice

The conclusion of the domestic season cannot come soon enough for these teams, both of whom are lethargically making their way towards the Matchday 34 finish line. For Wolfsburg, though, there is still an outside chance they could be relegated. Especially should their current negative trend continue, having sustained four losses in their past five Bundesliga matches. Another loss here, however, seems unlikely.


Wolfsburg Vs Mainz – Key Facts:

  • After enduring a ten-match winless sequence up against Wolfsburg, Mainz have since won the last two meetings between the teams. The 05’ers following up their first away win since 2012 (2-3 in May 2021) by winning 3-0 at home in December of this season.
  • Perhaps ominously, that 3-2 win at Volkswagen Arena remains the only encounter among the last seven between the sides to have seen both teams score.
  • More encouragingly, however, is that Mainz have seen 11 of their last 12 Bundesliga away feature both teams among the goals. The 05’ers losing seven of these games.


This is because Mainz are atrocious travellers. The 05’ers winning only two of their 15 Bundesliga away contests thus far, possessing an away record so poor that only bottom side Greuther Furth, who are 11 points from safety, can rival them. So I couldn’t put anyone off backing the hosts here. Instead, however, goals look the smart play. Both Teams to Score has landed in 11 of Mainz’s past 12 Bundesliga away games.
