Reason For FSV Mainz 05 vs Schalke Predictions

  • Mainz have scored under 1.5 goals in six of their last eight Bundesliga fixtures.
  • Schalke have scored under 1.5 goals in six of their last eight Bundesliga fixtures. 
  • Schalke have seen under 2.5 goals scored in five of their last seven Bundesliga fixtures.
  • Schalke have drawn four of their last six Bundesliga fixtures.

Mainz have failed to score many goals in most of their recent games

Mainz will host Schalke this Sunday in German Bundesliga action. The hosts will attempt to earn their second straight Bundesliga win this weekend. However, they will face a tough test trying to overcome sixth-placed Schalke. Mainz won’t be given confidence going into this game by their unreliable goalscoring record in recent weeks. 

Mainz have failed to score over 1.5 goals in six of their last eight Bundesliga fixtures. In addition to that, Sunday’s hosts have also scored under 1.5 goals in each of their last four Bundesliga home games. 

This doesn’t bode well for Mainz going into a game versus a Schalke side who haven’t exactly been leaking goals at the back of late. Schalke have conceded under 1.5 goals in four of their last seven Bundesliga fixtures. This includes both of their last two Bundesliga games. 

Schalke have also conceded under 1.5 goals in two of their last three Bundesliga away games. We feel that Mainz will be likely to struggle against Schalke’s solid defence this weekend. 

Schalke have also been relatively low scoring recently

One positive for Mainz going into Sunday’s game is that their opponents Schalke have also been low scoring in plenty of their Bundesliga games recent weeks. Similarly to Mainz, Schalke have also scored under 1.5 goals in six of their last eight Bundesliga fixtures. 

Furthermore, Schalke have also scored under 1.5 goals in each of their last four Bundesliga away games. Schalke’s poor offensive output in addition to their solid defence has lead to them seeing plenty of low scoring games in recent weeks. Five of Schalke’s last seven Bundesliga games have seen under 2.5 goals scored. 

Neither of these two teams look particularly likely to win this game

Neither of these two teams have been enjoying a very positive run of form in recent weeks. Firstly, hosts Mainz have lost six of their last eight Bundesliga fixtures. They have also won just three of their 10 Bundesliga home games this season. 

Meanwhile, the visiting side Schalke have also been enduring a run of poor form in recent weeks. Schalke have won just one of their last six Bundesliga fixtures. Furthermore, Sunday’s visitors have failed to win each of their last four Bundesliga away games. 

We feel that this game is unlikely to deliver many goals. We are backing under 2.5 goals to be scored in this game.

Mainz have won just three of their 10 Bundesliga home games this season. Meanwhile, Schalke have won just four of their 10 Bundesliga away games this season. Schalke have drawn four of their last six Bundesliga fixtures. We feel that this game may result in yet another draw for Schalke. 

Schalke have scored at least one goal in 10 of their last 12 Bundesliga games. Meanwhile, Mainz have scored at least one goal in nine of their last 11 Bundesliga games. We feel that a 1-1 draw is a likely result of this game.
