The Bundesliga table remains very close and, despite currently sitting 9th, 1. FSV Mainz 05 are just a point off the European places.
One factor that could be important this season will be the team’s success from dead-ball situations. According to Bundesliga Match Facts powered by AWS, Mainz rank 3rd when it comes to Free-Kick Threat, and 5th for Corner-Kick Threat.
Will they make their set-pieces count against VfL Wolfsburg this weekend?
