Giulio Donati and Daniel Brosinski compete for the spot at right-back, with the latter also providing a possible option on the wing. Jean-Philippe Gbamin, Suat Serdar and Fabian Frei all have the chance of starting in central midfield for Mainz.

Robin Knoche could replace Philipp Wollscheid at centre-back, with the latter having struggled in a 2-1 defeat at Bremen last weekend for the hosts. At left-back, the young Jannes Horn could have earned himself another start ahead of Ricardo Rodríguez and Marcel Schäfer. Christian Träsch and Vierinha compete for the spot at right-back.

Wolfsburg desperately need to improve their game in possession and work-ethic. They have lost back-to-back games and despite a lot of individual talent, manager Dieter Hecking has struggled to implement a clear system.

Mainz had a solid start to the season and while they still lack balance defensively, they are strong going forward. It remains to be seen if the team deals with fatigue after a long Europa League trip to Azerbaijan.

Expect Wolfsburg to be favourites at home, but Mainz to get opportunities to pull the upset.
