Wolfsburg have not managed to beat Mainz over six meetings since 2014 either, so coach Schmidt wouldn’t be travelling to his former stomping ground beaming with confidence.
And Schmidt has good reason to expect this to be a tough encounter too. Mainz 05 have not lost at home to a team in the bottom half of the table all season, while Wolfsburg have won just 2 of their 11 on the road so far (18%). But why do we expect this to be low scoring? Even though Mainz hold the 2nd worst defensive record in the Bundesliga, Wolfsburg hold a reasonable defensive record as a travelling side in the league – the Wolves have clocked three clean sheets in their last five away days, including one against Borussia Dortmund – but are one of the lowest scoring teams when on the road, averaging under 1 goal per match.
Looking over the statistics sets up a strong argument for this too, with under 2.5 goals scored in 55% of Mainz’s home matches and 64% of Wolfsburg’s away matches. Most notable here though is the long term record between the two sides in the head-to-head, which has seen two goals or fewer scored in a HUGE 10 of the last 12 meetings between them (83%) – don’t expect this to be a thriller.
