Schalke 04 – Mainz 05

We are heading to the Veltins Arena in the city of Gelsenkirchen, where Schalke 04 are facing Mainz 05 in a match from the 6th round of the German Bundesliga. Let’s examine this game in our predictions football 1×2 for today.

It’s hard to explain how bad the start of this season has been for Schalke 04. Right now the Royal Blues are the only team in the Bundesliga without a single point won so far. They at the bottom of the table with 0 points and five losses conceded from five games played. Truly shocking performance, especially for a team who finished 2nd last season and qualified for the Champions League.

Everything started with the loss against Wolfsburg in the first round, which was followed by defeats against Hertha, Borussia M’gladbach, Bayern Munich and Freiburg.

Meanwhile in the Champions League the club avoided a loss against Porto at home, but we doubt that it makes the fans happier, taking into account the team’s performance in the Bundesliga so far.

In the previous round Schalke visited Freiburg, but suffered a 0-1 defeat at the Schwarzwald-Stadion. The only goal in the match was scored by Florian Niederlechner just 7 minutes after the halftime break.

Mainz 05 are doing much better than Schalke so far. They are 7th in the league standings with 8 points won so far and on par with the 6th Wolfsburg. In their last game to date, Mainz made a 0-0 draw against Wolfsburg at home. Before this they suffered a defeat during the visit to Bayer in Leverkusen.

That’s what we had to say about the Bundesliga match between Schalke 04 and Mainz 05 in our predictions football 1×2 for today. Schalke are in a serious crisis now and they need points as soon as they can get it.
