Two sides struggling for form come together in the Bundesliga on Friday as Wolfsburg welcome Mainz to the Venue VOLKSWAGEN ARENA.

Just 5 points separate Mainz, currently 9th in the division and Wolfsburg in 14th with the visitors now just 6 points above the drop zone following a 6:1 hammering at Dortmund this past weekend.

Both sides have been poor in recent weeks with Mainz winning just 1 and losing 4 of their last 7 league matches while Wolfsburg have managed just 2 wins and 5 losses in their last 8 league outings.

At this venue, Wolfsburg have struggled for the most part and while they have won 3 of their last 5, they have managed to lose 7 of their 15 home matches played this season with only 6 of those matches seeing BTTS.

Mainz, for their part, have been desperately poor on the road, losing 8 and drawing 2 of their last 10 while they have managed just 2 away wins all season. They had managed to win 4 of their last 5 away matches at the end of last season. 

Goals are a regular feature of Mainz away matches this season with 11 of their last 12 seeing BTTS but with only 1 of the last 7 meetings between these sides seeing that outcome, we´ll look elsewhere for our best BTTS selections this weekend.

Ultimately, a tough fixture to call, Mainz won 3:0 when these sides met earlier this season while they also scored a 3:2 win in last season´s corresponding fixture. While the visitors have been dreadful on the road, Wolfsburg´s poor home form suggests Mainz offers a little bit of value at 2.87 odds to claim the spoils against a Wolves side potentially low on confidence following that thrashing at Dortmund.
