Today's Predictions for Mainz vs Schalke

Mainz have won four and drawn two of their last six home assignments ahead of their meeting with Schalke on Friday. Read our top Schalke vs Freiburg predictions for this week’s fixture below.

Mainz to Win

Mainz’s 11-game unbeaten run came to a shuddering halt last weekend when they were beaten 3-0 at Wolfsburg, though they have a chance to start a new sprint with a win at home to struggling Schalke in the Bundesliga’s Friday night offering. Mainz have won four and drawn two of their last six fixtures at the MEWA Arena, while Schalke have won only once on the road this season. With home advantage a powerful factor, our first Mainz vs Schalke prediction advises placing a wager on a victory for Die Nullfünfer.

Over 1.5 Mainz Goals

Mainz have an excellent goal-scoring record this term and their prowess in the final third at the MEWA Arena was evident in their last runout there when they put three goals past a shellshocked Bayern Munich. Mainz have scored at least twice in five of their last seven home tests overall and they have the firepower to net at least a brace against a generous Schalke defence on Friday.
