Schalke vs Mainz Predictions


Schalke rarely win but after a cleanout at the club, there is a decent chance of a new manager bounce. I am backing Schalke to beat Mainz on Friday.

  • Schalke have lost 7 of their last 9 matches (Bundesliga).
  • Schalke won their last 6 home matches against Mainz (Bundesliga).
  • Mainz have won 3 of their last 6 matches (Bundesliga).

Head to Head


Schalke have a 20-9 advantage against Mainz with 8 draws in 37 matches. 

Schalke have won the last six encounters at the Veltins-Arena including 2-1 last season.

Schalke Form


Schalke remain rooted to the bottom of the Bundesliga after one win in their opening 23 matches. That came in a 4-0 home win against Hoffenheim on 9 January.

The Miners have lost seven of their last nine matches. The only points they picked up were in draws at Werder Bremen and Union Berlin.

Schalke’s last two results have been poor. A 4-0 home defeat to Borussia Dortmund was followed by a 5-1 defeat in Stuttgart.

The club made several leadership changes after the result in Stuttgart. Head coach Christian Gross, first team coordinator Sascha Riether and head of sport Jochen Schneider were all sacked.

Former Darmstadt manager Dimitrios Grammozis has been given the job with his side seven points behind Mainz and eight points behind Arminia Bielefeld in the play-off position.

Schalke Injuries & Team News


Goalkeepers Frederik Rönnow and Ralf Fährmann are injured alongside centre backs Matija Nastasic and Salif Sané.

Right back Kilian Ludewig is injured alongside midfielder Nassim Boujellab. 

Four forwards are out injured - Steven Skrzybski, Gonçalo Paciencia, Mark Uth and Klaas-Jan Huntelaar.

Mainz Form


Mainz are in the relegation zone but have seen some positive results in recent weeks. Bo Svensson became the third manager of the season in January and is doing well.

Mainz won home matches against Leipzig (3-2) and Union Berlin (1-0) before a 2-2 draw at Bayer Leverkusen. The 05ers then won 2-1 at Borussia Monchengladbach with Kevin Stöger scoring a late winner.

Mainz’s last match was a disappointing 1-0 home defeat to Augsburg.

Mainz Injuries & Team News


Mainz midfielder Edimilson Fernandes is out with an ankle injury and striker Robin Quaison has a knee injury.

Verdict

Schalke have won only one Bundesliga game this season but have a strong home record against Mainz. The prospect of a new manager bounce means a small play on the hosts is my best bet.
