Mainz vs Schalke 04 Preview

Mainz vs Schalke 04

Competition – German Bundesliga

Stadium – OPEL Arena

Date: 9th March 2018

Kick-off time – 19:30 GMT

Mainz 05 are getting better and they have started getting some good results as they look to survive relegation.

After winning 0-2 at Berlin, they have drawn their last two games against Wolfsburg and Hamburg to take themselves 7 points clear of the automatic relegation spot –however they are still in a relegation playoff spot.

Prior to their last 3 games, they lost 3 consecutive matches and they need to be careful not to fall to a defeat here again.

Schalke got their 4th win of the year against a very stubborn Hertha Berlin side last weekend to boost their chances of making it to next season’s Champions League.

Add that to equally impressive wins against Hoffenheim and Bayer Leverkusen earlier in the year and you would feel they have what it takes to take all three points here with a good performance.

Guido Burgstaller – their top scorer, could miss this game, but they have enough options to fill that void.

Schalke have just one win in their last 3 visits here, losing the other two.
