Mainz / Schalke 04. Who is the favorite of the match?
In this game, bookmakers are considered the favorite of Schalke 04, assessing the probability of his victory just below 50%. After 25 days of play, the Gelsenkirchen club ranks second in the German championship table with 43 points. He does not pretend to the championship – the lag behind the leading Bavaria is 20 points. However, Schalke has a good chance of getting into the Champions League. However, hasty conclusions should not be made, given that Mainz only four points ahead of the sixth coming Leipzig, and this is the vice-champion of Germany. In the last round, Schalke beat Gertha in his own field with the score 1:0 – the only goal was scored by Marco Piatsa – the Croatian striker, who was expected to have a great future several years ago. In 2016, he for 22 million euros moved from Zagreb Dynamo to Juventus, but spent only one and a half seasons in 14 matches in the Italian championship and scored no goals. In Schalke, he plays on loan since January this year and scored two goals in five meetings in the Bundesliga. The victory over Herta became for Schalke third in a row – before that he won only two of the ten fights of the championship. However, the team’s visiting results still leave much to be desired. So, for seven previous encounters on someone else’s field Schalke scored only two wins with three draws and a couple of defeats. Mainz before this tour takes 16th place, gaining 25 points. He is seven points from the zone of direct relegation, and he is second only to additional figures on the saving 15th position of Wolfsburg. Last Saturday, Mainz played a 0-0 draw against Hamburg. It was his second consecutive draw. And he does not lose three matches in a row. On the other hand, for the last 17 matches in the Bundesliga, Mainz scored only three wins – as much as in the eight first fights in his field. At home, he lost three of the five previous meetings of the championship, beating only once and conceding ten goals.
Mainz / Schalke 04. How did they play with each other?
Schalke won three previous games against Mainz with a total score of 6: 0. Including in the first round of the current German championship, he beat him 2-0. The last draw in this confrontation was fixed in February 2014, after which five times defeated Schalke and twice Mainz. I must say that in six of the last nine matches between these teams at least one team did not score.
Forecast for Mainz / Schalke 04
Experts believe that Schalke will not be able to justify the status of the favorite and he will play with Mainz only in a draw. In this case, the bet on the victory of the home team with a handicap (+0.5) will be profitable. In the bookmaker office
