Schalke vs Mainz – Free Betting Tips & Predictions

Schalke have lost seven matches on the spin in the Bundesliga ahead of their clash with Mainz on Wednesday evening. Read our top predictions for this week’s fixture below.

Mainz Draw no Bet

Schalke supporters are starting to get that sinking feeling again after their team were beaten for the seventh time on the bounce in the Bundesliga at the weekend. Schalke’s 2-1 loss at Werder Bremen kept them rooted to the foot of the table and with a five-point gap already opened between themselves and safety, the picture is starting to look bleak. Mainz look well placed to return to winning ways at Schalke’s expense, though back-to-back defeats in their last two assignments calls for a measure of caution. As such, we recommend siding with the visitors in the draw no bet stakes here.

Both Teams to Score

We’ve tipped Mainz to have the upper hand on their struggling hosts on Wednesday, though a clean sheet at the VELTINS-Arena seems unlikely for the visitors even if points seem possible. Mainz have shut out their hosts in just two of their seven away fixtures this term and having conceded nine times in their last two Bundesliga fixtures, there could be a weakness or two for Schalke to exploit. Schalke have shipped goals in 12 out of 13 league matches since the summer however, and they seem certain to concede again here. With that in mind, back both teams to register in Gelsenkirchen.
