Given the opposition came in the likes of Hertha BSC and Freiburg, we can say it was a disappointing set of showings from Bruno Labbadia’s troops. Can they rebound from such failures and get the campaign up and running once again on Wednesday when they travel to OPEL ARENA to take on Mainz 05 in the mid-week round?

The hosts also began the new season in fine style winning two and drawing one of opening three games. However, they could not keep such form going on Sunday when they fell 1-0 to Bayer Leverkusen away at BayArena.

Mainz vs Wolfsburg: Head-to-head

The draw was the most common of outcomes in the history of head to head encounters between the two teams.

It happened 13 times in 32 games. Wolfsburg won 12 and lost 7 along the way.

Interestingly, all of last five head to head games ended without a winner.

As many as four of these matches saw the same 1-1 scoreline. The remaining fifth ended goalless.

None of last seven head to head outings saw three or more goals scored.

Mainz vs Wolfsburg: Prediction

It’s hard to expect another low-scoring contest between these two sides given Wolfsburg’s defensive holes at the start of the new season. The Wolves boast pone of league’s worst defensive records with seven goals conceded in four games. In spite of it, they still sit sky-high fifth thanks to a wide range of attacking options.

Mainz play much tighter at the back. They are two out of two in front of the home crowd (wins over Augsburg and Stuttgart). We just have to fancy the 1.44 odds offered for the hosts not to lose this one. Braver tipsters can go for the home win at 2.60 as well as the 0-Fives to net two or more goals at the 2.50 odds.

Mainz vs Wolfsburg: Bet Tips

  • Mainz or Draw @ 1.44 (4/9)
  • Mainz Over 1.5 Team Goals @ 2.50 (6/4).
