The Bundesliga continues this weekend and will see Mainz host Wolfsburg at the Opel Arena on Saturday afternoon.

Mainz's five-game unbeaten run across all competitions came to an end last time out as they were beaten 2-1 by Stuttgart. The loss at the weekend means they are winless in their last three Bundesliga games.

Mainz sit ninth in the league with 18 points from 13 games. A win at the weekend could see them enter European places in the league table.

Like their hosts, Wolfsburg lost their last league game. A 3-1 home loss to Borussia Dortmund marked the second consecutive loss for Die Wolfe and a third straight game without a win across all competitions.

Wolfsburg sit seventh in the Bundesliga standings with 20 points and a negative goal difference of two. They will be looking to return to winning ways at the weekend as they look to get their campaign back on track.
