As the Bundesliga 2021-22 season enters its final straight, Wolfsburg is all set to host Mainz this Friday.
Both the teams have performed rather inconsistently this season and will be struggling to finish in a European spot. In fact, after losing 4 of its last 5 matches, Wolfsburg finds itself in the 13th spot on the points table, just 6 points ahead of Stuttgart, who might head towards relegation play-offs.
In its last outing, Wolfsburg was crushed by a 6-1 defeat against Dortmund. The visitors conceded 4 goals within a span of 14 minutes in the first half, and couldn’t really recover from those early blows. However, coach Florian Kohfeldt will be looking to put that loss behind them and make a fresh start on his home ground.
Mainz is better placed compared to their opponents and is currently occupying 9th place, trailing Hoffenheim by a good 6 points. With a European spot still 8 points away, most football betting sites are finding it highly unlikely that Mainz will finish in the top 6. The club is winless in its last 4 games and will be pretty disappointed with its last outing, where it was held to a goalless draw by Stuttgart.
Match prediction and football betting tips for VfL Wolfsburg vs FSV Mainz Bundesliga 2021-22. The match is going to be played at the Volkswagen Arena, Wolfsburg, on 22nd April 2022.
With both the teams pretty evenly matched in form, it is difficult to predict a clear winner for this match. Kohfeldt is likely to field a 3-4-2-1 formation for this game. However, he is likely to miss out on Luca Waldschmidt, Paulo Otavio, and William due to injuries.
The visitors are likely to take on the field without Delano Burgzorg, Jae Sung-Lee and Jeremiah St. Juste, all of whom are facing fitness issues. Bo Svensson too is likely to play with a 3-4-2-1 line-up in this game.
We expect both the teams to collect a single point from this game.
Bet on a draw.
While both teams have scored on just one occasion in the last five head-to-head games, both the teams have been leaking goals this season. Mainz has conceded in each of its last 14 away games, and Wolfsburg has been pretty bad at protecting its net as well.
The likelihood that both teams will let in at least one goal each is quite high.
4 of the last 6 head to head games have seen more than 2.5 goals being scored. 3 of the last 4 away games for Mainz, and 4 of the last 5 games for Wolfsburg have seen more than 2.5 goals being scored as well. With an attacking mindset for both teams and a defensive record that is shockingly bad, this game is likely to be a high-scoring affair.
