Short quiz question for all Bundesliga experts: Which three teams are unbeaten this season? Maybe one or the other almost from reflex may call the three top teams from Leipzig, Munich and Dortmund. But who remembers correctly, knows that BVB had already suffered a bankruptcy at the Old Forester against Union Berlin.
Leader Leipzig and record champions Bayern are correct answers and then there is just a third club: the VfL Wolfsburg. Even the wolves could not be defeated so far. Two wins and three draws are in the team of the new coach Oliver Glasner book.
Mainz vs Wolfsburg Today’s Betting Predictions and Odds
This series will continue the green-whites on Saturday. The next club attempting the first defeat of the club from the Autostadt is FSV Mainz 05. At first glance, the 05ers do not seem like an opponent, who can be dangerous to the VfL. With only three points on the account, the team of coach Sandro Schwarz ranked on the penultimate place in the table and has lost four of the previous five encounters.
In this situation, it is little wonder that the odds were chosen in favor of the guests between Mainz and Wolfsburg. A bet on the away win is possible at a 2.55 rate, while on the side of the home side a 2.95 is found.
Mainz – Statistics & Current Form
Since you have no luck and then comes to bad luck – this saying applies to the FSV Mainz 05 currently perfect. The 05ers just do not want to run into this season. From the beginning, the starting position was difficult, as many players have missed injury due to the start of the season. Even now, the hospital is still packed and Aaron, Stefan Bell, Philipp Mwene, Dong Won Ji or Jean-Philippe Mateta are just some of the names that can not stand on Saturday in the squad.
Especially in this situation, the FSV would need a little game luck. But the opposite is the case. Last weekend Sandro Schwarz’s team did not reward themselves for a courageous away appearance. On Schalke, the team came back strong behind, then in the final minute but still to cash the 1: 2 and finally drive home empty-handed.
The head coach rightly stated during the week at the press conference that his players have no fundamental problem. Nevertheless, the football teacher knows the mechanisms of the professional business and knows that his chair will start to wobble if results are not delivered soon.
The home game on Saturday is already very important. How the hosts tackle this personnel is open. Latza and Hack had to pause at the beginning of the training week with minor injuries and their use is still open. Should Hack fail, then Jonathan Meier is an option for the left-back, on which Aaron could be replaced.
Like every week, the question of the number 1 in the goal arises. Between Robin Zentner and Florian Müller will again decide the training performance, who stands between the posts. Sandro Schwarz noted that this should not be a permanent state and he will soon commit to a rootkeeper.
The rest of the team is almost alone in the many failures and the eleven players on the course want to put a certain “Now even more” mentality to the day to free themselves from the misery and the table cellar.
Hope makes at least the last home game in the Opel Arena, where the only single win of the season against Hertha could be celebrated. The little bit of luck in this game is also needed on Saturday, when between Mainz and Wolfsburg a tip on the odds of the hosts should be successful.
Expected formation of Mainz:
➤ Zentner – Pierre-Gabriel, St. Juste, Niakhate, Brosinski – Fernandes, Baku, Maxim, Boetius – Szalai, Quaison

Wolfsburg – Statistics & Current Form
Oliver Glasner chases the record of Martin Schmidt. The current Augsburg coach remained unbeaten in his first eight games at VfL Wolfsburg – but played only seven draws. Glasner is currently in five league games without bankruptcy and would like to expand this series. However, draws did not satisfy the new coach on the sideline, and he was dissatisfied after his 1-1 home defeat against Hoffenheim on Monday night, the third round of the series, and went down hard with his players.
The clear words of the coach made it clear that VfL is pursuing great goals this season and that it has clearly raised its expectations. No wonder – the squad, which last season already made it into the international business, was kept together for the most part and was able to develop in this way. During the week there were occasionally a few abdominal pain when looking at the defense network.
Both Marcel Tisserand, who is currently replacing the injured John Anthony Brooks, and Jerome Roussillon, had to pause in training on Wednesday. One day later, the fans were able to breathe a sigh of relief when both players were back in action.
Roussillon will most likely be in the starting lineup and Renato Steffen may have to sit on the bench for him. Should Tisserand not be 100% in the defense chain, Bruma will be available as a replacement.
Attacking top goalscorer Wout Weghorst and the formidable wing flickers Josip Brekalo and Admir Mehmedi at the moment. So it all goes very well and if on Saturday between Mainz and Wolfsburg a prediction in the direction of the guests is successful, then Oliver Glasner will again be fully satisfied with his protected.
Expected formation of Wolfsburg:
➤ Pervan – Knoche, Guilavogui, Tisserand, William – Gerhardt, Arnold, Roussillon, Mehmedi, Brekalo – Weghorst
