Betting Tips Preview Mainz vs Wolfsburg
The meeting between FSV Mainz and VfL Wolfsburg will be a proverbial ‘six-pointer’ as both teams are in and around the relegation zone, only separated by one point – Wolfsburg are 14th with 24 points, whilst Mainz are just two places below in 16th with 23 points.
After a horrible year with a long series of BL away losses, Mainz finally won away from home last Friday with a 2-0 victory at Hertha Berlin. They will look continue that form here and leapfrog Wolfsburg out of the relegation zone.
Wolfsburg are the league’s ‘draw specialists’ and their BL-high of 12 has so far hindered their pre-season plans for European football qualification, and instead landed them in a relegation fight. Another draw here, or can they go one further and get all three points?
Wolfsburg coach Martin Schmidt quit after their 2-1 home loss to Bayern Munich last weekend. Sports director Olaf Rebbe was shocked and is now under pressure, as he stated: “We have no plan B for the coaching position.”
