Can Die Konigsbaluen finally see their dreadful thread come to an end on Saturday afternoon when they host Mainz 05 at VELTIN-Arena?

The visitors began the season in a much more promising fashion, but they’ll travel to Gelsenkirchen lower on confidence after failing to score a goal in last two league outings.

The O-Fives fell 1-0 to Leverkusen away at BayArena last weekend, while their mid-week tie saw a goalless draw to Wolfsburg at OPEL ARENA on Wednesday evening.

Schalke vs Mainz: Head-to-head

Schalke were the more successful outfit over the course of history.

Die Konigsblauen won 15, drew 4 and lost 7 of 26 meetings with Mainz 05.

Schalke were much more impressive in matches at VELTINS-Arena where they won 9, drew 2 and lost 2 of 13.

Die Konigsblauen will come into this off the back of four consecutive wins over Mainz who have failed to find the back of the net in any of outings along the way.

Schalke vs Mainz: Prediction

Domenico Tedesco’s job is rumoured to be on the line after such an embarrassing start to the new season. The German manager has huge issues with his side’s attacking performances as Die Konigsblauen bagged no more than two goals in five games so far.

Given that Mainz 05 played tight at the back allowing very few goal-scoring chances to their rivals, we feel the host could likely struggle in the build-up play once again. The Under 2.5 goals FT thus looks to be a decent option at the odds of 1.85.

Since Mainz did not score a goal in last for H2H meetings with Schalke, we fancy the hosts to keep a clean sheet at 2.25. The visitors failed to find the net in last two Bundesliga games as well.

Schalke vs Mainz: Bet Tips

  • Under 2.5 goals FT @ 1.85 (17/20)
  • Schalke to keep a clean sheet @ 2.25 (5/4).
