Wolfsburg to Win
Mainz have been exceptional in recent months, evading relegation and can finish as high as 12th in the Bundesliga. To achieve that, they will have to deliver a blow to Wolfsburg's third-place ambitions. Die Wolfe have not lost to Mainz since November 2015 and Oliver Glasner would be looking for their streak against the Carnival Club to continue.
Total Goals: Over 2.5
After struggling against fellow top-four candidates, Wolfsburg have come out of their shell and showed their scoring prowess against RB Leipzig in a 2-2 draw. The tail end of the campaign has seen Die Wolfe adopt an attacking approach in their bid to qualify for the Champions League. This has seen four of their last five fixtures seeing three or more goals. With both sides making having a point to prove and league positions to improve, their final outing should provide plenty of action.
Both Teams to Score: Yes
Mainz have punched above their waist against the top four, defeating Bayern Munich and holding Eintracht Frankfurt to a 1-1 draw. Borussia Dortmund managed to end Mainz's 9-match unbeaten run, but could not stop them from scoring. Wolfsburg have the second-best defensive record in the 2020/21 campaign behind RB Leipzig, and even the mighty Die Roten Bullen let Bo Svenson's men slip one behind them. With the hosts shipping in eight goals in their last five outings, Mainz should fancy their chances of getting on the scoreboard.
Wolfsburg vs Mainz: Team News and Match Preview
Die Wolfe will be pleased with the Champions League qualification. Heading into the final fixture of the campaign, they can add more flavour to the celebrations with a third-place finish. They are on equal points with Borussia Dortmund, straggling behind them due to a poor goal difference. Wolfsburg needs a win to put themselves ahead and hope the other results go in their favour. While their defence has remained solid throughout the season, they need the squad to complement Wout Weghorst's goals.
The writing was on the wall for Mainz in January. The fat lady was about to sing and then came Bo Svenson. The music returned to the Carnival Club as all and sundry were left to waste. Mainz are in thirteenth place with their sights set on making a further jump up. Their task could not have been made tougher as they take on Wolfsburg in the final fixture. However, confidence will be high in the group after their meteoric run that saw them slay Bayern Munich in the process. With goals coming from all sides of the pitch, Die Wolfe will have a tough time containing their assaults.
