Mainz vs Schalke Preview

Mainz are struggling towards the bottom of the Bundesliga and currently sit third bottom. They’ve had three very important games recently which saw them face relegation rivals Hamburger SV and Wolfsburg where they managed draws in both games. Not losing those matches was a priority for both teams who can’t afford to give away points to teams around them in the league. Those two points, along with another three that were picked up in a win against Hertha, have kept Mainz in the running to remain in the top flight next season and will give Sandro Schwarz’s side confidence going into Friday’s game. However, Schalke will prove a much bigger test as they are battling it out at the other end of the table to secure a Champions League place for next season.

Schalke are in second place in the Bundesliga, 20 points of Bayern Munich who have all but won the league. However, there is still a lot to play for this season for Domenico Tedesco’s side as it is very tight at the top of the table for Champions League and Europa League spots. Only 3 points separate Schalke in 2nd place and Leverkusen in 5th and Tedesco knows his side can’t afford to drop points if they wish to play with Europe’s elite next season.

Schalke come into this game after a 1-0 win at home to Hertha which was the third of three consecutive wins. Their last away game saw them record a very good 2-1 victory against Leverkusen which allowed them to jump all the way up to 2nd and send their rivals down to 5th.

Schalke’s top scorer Guido Burgstaller is due to miss this game as he did against Hertha and is likely to be replaced by Juventus loanee Marko Pjaca who scored the only goal in Schalke’s 1-0 victory last weekend.

Mainz vs Schalke Prediction

Schalke are favourites for this match and there seems to be good value in an away win. We can’t expect Mainz to give Schalke’s defence many problems on Friday given that they have the fourth best defensive record in the Bundesliga so far this season. Schalke also haven’t been short of goals on the road and managed to score more than once away to the likes of Leverkusen and Frankfurt as well as putting four past Dortmund.

Both teams have things to play for but we expect Schalke to come out on top in this game to keep in the running for a Champions League spot for next season. Mainz may have to wait until their trip to Frankfurt next week to climb out of the bottom three.

Schalke have dominated this meeting in recent years and have won 14 of the 25 games played against Mainz who have won just 7 of the meetings.

Schalke have won the last three matches without conceding a single goal, including this meeting last season where a single goal from Schalke’s left-back Sead Kolašinac was enough to see the visitors take home three points.
