On Saturday afternoon, Wolfsburg and Mainz clash at the Volkswagen Arena in a Bundesliga game that could be vital in the visitor's hopes of avoiding dropping into the league's bottom three on gameweek 34.

Wolfsburg looking to bounce back to winning ways

The Wolves' three-game winning run in the Bundesliga ended last time out with a 2-0 defeat at former reigning champions Bayern Munich.

The recent winning streak has propelled Ralph Hasenhuttl’s team to a more comfortable 12th place in the table, with a seven-point lead over 16th place Union Berlin in the Bundesliga’s relegation play-off spot.

Wolfsburg have recorded back-to-back home wins over strugglers Bochum and Darmstadt. However, the victories came after an eight-game winless streak on home soil in the Bundesliga, including three consecutive defeats.

Their recent home games in the German top flight have been high-scoring, with over 2.5 goals scored in four of their previous five matches on home soil.

Mainz needs a draw to stay out of the bottom three

The visitors realistically need just a point to keep out of the Bundesliga’s bottom three. The O5ers head into this clash on the back of an eight-game unbeaten run in the Bundesliga, having recorded four wins and four draws.

A 3-0 home win against Dortmund last time out ended a run of three straight draws and low-scoring games, as their previous three Bundesliga games had all produced under 2.5 goals.

Mainz has struggled on their travels in the Bundesliga lately. They have failed to win in their last 20 games away from home. However, their previous three away games have all produced draws.

Their recent away games in the German top-flight have been relatively low-scoring, with under 2.5 goals scored in eight of their last 11 outings.

What am I backing?

This could be a close encounter, as both teams have been in decent form lately. The bet I am backing is the draw, as these two teams are difficult to separate.
