Reason for Schalke vs Mainz Predictions
Schalke is coming off of a 5-1 loss to Stuttgart. No team has conceded as many goals as Schalke in the Bundesliga, as they have conceded 61 times in 23 games. Not only have the hosts conceded the most goals in the Bundesliga, but they have scored the fewest goals of any club. The Royals have tallied just 16 goals. Ex-coach Christian Gross watched his Schalke team collect only two points from their last 18 possible. On Sunday, the club sacked Gross and hired the unknown Dimitrios Grammozis to take his place. The team scored a mere two goals over the course of their last six matches. Meanwhile, they conceded 17 goals during that period. Schalke conceded nine goals alone in their previous two Bundesliga matches. Suat Serdar has excellent control of the ball, and he can play in several positions. Matthew Hoppe enjoys the field, and when he receives the ball and heads towards the goal, the opponent has problems. He does great in the penalty area.
The 05ers are one point off of Armina Bielefeld, who occupy the relegation playoff place. A win could send them into 16th place and above Armina Bielefeld in the table. Mainz has been good, for the most part, over the course of the last six games in the Bundesliga. Although they lost narrowly to Ausburg at the weekend, 1-0, Mainz were on a five-game unbeaten run in the division. The teams drew 2-2 when the sides met earlier this season. Mainz took a 2-1 lead into halftime thanks to two penalties from Daniel Brosinski and Jean-Philippe Mateta. Schalke’s goals came from Mark Uth and an own goal from Jerry St. Juste, which came in the 82nd minute. Mainz coach Bo Svensson has watched his team improve over the last few months. Despite losing last weekend to Augsburg, Mainz is in a good position to get a result on Friday night and move level with Arminia Bielefeld in the table at the very least. A point would be enough to move into 16th place due to a better goal difference than Arminia Bielefeld. Karim Onisiwo is a great player, he has good dribbles, and his greatest virtue is speed. The bench players are expected to show as much as possible and impose themselves on the coach for the starting lineup.
It will be a big battle between these two teams, and it will not be surprising if the match ends in a draw. We can also expect a goal in both nets, as their defenses are leaking pretty much.
