Our football match prediction:
VOLKSWAGEN ARENA will host Saturday’s football game between Wolfsburg and Mainz. The Wolves did remarkably well to come from behind and share the spoils with title holders Bayern Munich at Allianz Arena in their last league match and, no doubt, that gave them a confidence boost ahead of upcoming challenges. Wolfsburg aim to escape danger zone in the Bundesliga standings and we predict that they will fight tooth and nail against Mainz on Matchday 7. In Mario Gomez’s absence, Divock Origi is likely to lead the line for the hosts and, taking everything into account, home win should be considered. Mainz recorded a hard-fought 1-0 win over Hertha in front of home fans at the weekend, but die Nullfunfer often struggle on the travels and they are unlikely to spoil Wolfsburg’s party at VOLKSWAGEN ARENA. It has to be noted, though, that Wolfsburg are after their first win over Mainz since 2014.
