Match : Mainz 05 vs Schalke 04
Competition : Germany – Bundesliga
Time /Date : 21:30h / 9 March 2018
Venue : OPEL ARENA
The O-Fives managed to make advantage of 7 points in the 16th place after 3 games without loss. (1W,2D)
They are still in the Playoffs area and will be difficult to move after this game , when they meet in-form Schalke.
Todesco’s team is now at second place after three wins in a row and Champions League spot looks more than real.
They have only lost at Leipzig and Bayern in their last nine away matches and should be able to extend that run.
1.FSV Mainz 05
Leon Balogun (Indirect card suspension), Emil Berggreen (Tonsillitis), Robin Zentner (Knee Problems)
FC Schalke 04
Thilo Kehrer (Influenza), Alessandro Schöpf (Rest ), Leon Goretzka (Foot injury)
Schalke is in three wins in a row against Mainz and they failed to score a single goal in that spell.
Schalke looking good right now and I can’t see how Mainz willl stop them and even in h2h meetings they are one step up-front.
-Away win @2.05
Also, since the visitors have been very tough to break down recently, we will alternatively back Schalke 04 to keep a clean sheet at the odds of 2.75.
-Away win to nil @2.75
