Bundesliga came to an end. Now, in the last (34th) round, one of the most interesting games will be between Wolfsburg and Mainz, which are trying to avoid the relegation playout with a positive result here. The game will take place at Volkswagen Arena in Wolfsburg, and considering Mainz have struggled away from home through the season, they will not have an easy job. 

Wolfsburg will not secure Europe for the third year in a row. They finished 12th and 8th in the last two and are currently 12th with only 37 points. Regardless of the result, they are without a chance of moving significantly up or down and have almost nothing to gain from this match. Throughout the season, they were slowly dropping on the league's table, and it even looked like they could get relegated, but with three wins in the last four matches, they managed to survive. 

Mainz are playing its 15th consecutive season in the German top-flight division, where they were mostly in the mid or lower part of the league's table but not that close to the danger zone. However, this year, Mainz spent the majority of the season in the relegation zone. Still, with an excellent last part of the season, they are now in a superb position to secure another season in the Bundesliga. They are two points away from 16th-placed Union Berlin, and due to a much better score difference, they only need one point from the last match. 

Wolfsburg vs Mainz pick: Both teams to score

Wolfsburg are in good form, winning three of the last four matches. Yes, they are without a real motive in this game, but we think they are more than capable of scoring at home, where they scored at least one goal in 16 of 17 games (94%). 

Mainz are undefeated in the last eight matches. However, most of their good games came at home. Away from it, they are the worst team in the league, with only nine points in 16 rounds, and are the only winless road team in the Bundesliga. So far, they have allowed 32 goals (two per game), and we do not expect a clean sheet. On the other hand, even though they struggled away from home, they have scored pretty regularly in recent away matches. In the last six road matches, both teams scored on five occasions. 

In the first h2h game this season, we saw a 1:1 draw. Considering all the above, we believe both teams to score is the safest option for this Bundesliga game.

Wolfsburg team news

Forward Dzenan Pejcinovic suffered a left foot injury in the previous game against Bayern Munich. According to the club website, the 19-year-old will miss the upcoming game. However, he is only a backup option anyway and not too important a piece of the puzzle at this moment. 

Besides Pejcinovic, the players who missed the previous games will remain sidelined: Yannick Gerhardt, Mattias Svanberg, Aster Vranckx, and Lukas Nmecha.

Mainz team news

Phillipp Mwene, a starting right full-back/wing-back, served his two-game suspension in the previous matches and should be back in the starting lineup. 

Maxim Leitsch, Karim Onisiwo, and Stefan Bell, who missed the previous games due to injuries, should remain sidelined. At the same time, Sepp van den Berg is questionable, as he sustained a minor injury in the last game vs Dortmund.
