Unbeaten in six matches and on the back of a convincing home win last time out, VfL will be heading off to face 1. FSV Mainz 05 on Saturday 5 November (kick-off: 15.30 CET) with the wind in their sails. Mainz are on equally good form on home turf however, having thrashed 1. FC Köln 5-0 two weeks ago.
The two sides have met 42 times in the past, with the Wolves well clear on 17 wins compared with 10 for FSV.
