Yesterday the German powerhouse Bayern has been sensationally beaten by Hertha in the capital. The sixth match day of Bundesliga will continue with six games. In one of them the worst team Schalke welcomes Mainz at its Veltins Arena. The hosts lost everywhere. Can we hope for a high scoring?
The reigning vice-champion demonstrates the poorest performance among all teams in the European big five. This week even the French outsider Guingamp has earned its first point. The 04ers are still winless and never played in a draw. All Schalke’s five fixtures ended with a loss with the total score 2-9. Recently the hosts played against Freiburg and failed to score again. The rival took a narrow victory over the defending runners-up. This is their worst start ever. The nearest competitors Stuttgart and Hannover have two points after five matches.
Mainz look substantially better comparing to Schalke. The 05ers earned eight points and sit on the seventh place. They had a good start with two wins and a draw in the three opening games. Then Sandro Schwarz’s guys earned one point out of six possible. They have been beaten by Bayer Levekusen and drawn with Wolfsburg. The guests have failed to score in the last two fixtures.
Last year Schalke won both H2H meetings (2:0 in Gelsenkirchen and 1:0 in Mainz). Mainz have failed to score in their last two encounters at Veltins Arena.
Schalke: Fährmann (c) – Sane, Naldo, Nastasic – Caligiuri, Rudy, Bentaleb, Schöpf – Embolo, Uth, Burgstaller
Absentees: Oczipka (groin), Skrzybski (muscle), Stambouli (ankle)
Mainz: Müller – Mwene, Bell (c), Niakhate, Martin - Gbamin, Baku, Mateta – Boetius, Ujah, Quaison
Absentees: Adler, Berggreen (both knee), Brosinski (thigh), Bungert (calf), Holtmann (Achilles), Latza (fitness), Hack (foot)
Schalke are close to their first win. They have a lot of scoring chances without the final follow-up. We expect the hosts will interrupt their “failed to score” line. As well as the guests who performed well in the Summer stage of Bundesliga. We predict both teams to score (yes) with a remarkable coefficient of 1.80.
