Our football match prediction:
Following back-to-back wins over the likes of Augsburg and Werder Bremen, Mainz suffered a 3-2 loss to Bayer Leverkusen on Matchday 5. Die Nullfunfer, though, did well to beat Gabala in Thursday’s Europa League clash and they will be looking to build on the triumph when they square off against Wolfsburg at Volkswagen Arena on Sunday afternoon. The Wolves were hammered by Borussia Dortmund (1-5) in their last home game in Bundesliga, with the team suffering a shocking loss to Werder Bremen at Weserstadion at the weekend. Both teams are desperate to return to winning ways in the national championship and there is every chance we will see a lively contest in Wolfsburg. The two sides played out a 1-1 draw on their last meeting at Volkswagen Arena and we predict that the Wolves and die Nullfunfer are going to find the net in Sunday’s football match as well.
Highligted Player (Vieirinha):
Better known as Vieirinha, Adelino Andre Vieira de Freitas originates from Guimaraes, and it was at Vitoria Guimaraes that he spent seven years before joining FC Porto academy in 2002. Despite getting promoted to the senior side in 2005, the winger was never given a chance to impress at Estadio do Dragao and following several loan spells, he opted to sign for Greek giants PAOK. Vieirinha clearly profited from exposure to first team football, scoring 18 goals in 78 league matches for the club. His impressive displays did not go unnoticed and Wolfsburg soon came calling. Despite arriving at the club as a right winger, the Portuguese footballer was eventually converted to right-back near the end of the 2014/2015 season and has since impressed in his new position. After representing his country at various youth levels, Vieirinha received his first call-up to the senior squad in November 2011, but he had to wait until March 2013 to be handed his debut. The experienced footballer, nonetheless, secured his place in the 2014 World Cup squad, making one appearance at the tournament finals.
