Wolfsburg- Week 9

Match Date: 25 October 2014 (local time)

Venue: Volkswagon Arena

 

Wolfsburg and Mainz 05 are both on a high after securing big wins during the previous gaming week. Both clubs catapulted in the domestic league’s top five (5).

 

The contenders

Wolfsburg

After its narrow defeat to the capital club, Hertha Berlin, Wolfsburg made a grand comeback and secured its 3rd straight win during the encounter against Freiburg.  A rampaging Daniel Caligiuri and Kevin De Bruyne orchestrated the impressive victory. It was all over for Freiburg during the 66th minute—that moment when Caligiuri scored the club’s second goal.

 

Due to the said win, Wolfsburg catapulted to the 5th spot of the table, sporting four (4) wins, two (2) losses and two (2) stalemates.

 

Mainz 05

Mainz also overflows with confidence after snatching a win against Augsburg. The club had to endure three (3) consecutive stalemates until they enjoyed its most recent victory.

 

Mainz currently ranks as the 3rd best club in German’s top-flight league. It boasts an undefeated streak that could help them overcome the intimidation posted by the host.

 

They may not be the favorite of sports betting sites, but there is no doubt that they will put up a good fight against the Wolves.

 

Possible head turners

De Bruyne and Caligiuri are fatal on the pitch. Mainz should keep an eye on them or they might produce more damage than what is expected.

 

A down the wire match will definitely occur between the two.

 

Prediction

Wolfsburg 2-1 Mainz 05
