Our match prediction:
Schalke will be looking to build on a thrilling 3-0 win over Wolfsburg when they take on Mainz at Coface Arena in the opening match of Matchday 21 of the 2015/2016 Bundesliga campaign. Die Knappen suffered a 3-1 loss to Werder Bremen in their first game in 2016, but you should have in mind that they missed a number of clear-cut chances to score in the defeat to the Werderaner. The team proved their worth in a 2-0 victory at Darmstadt and they totally outplayed star-studded Wolfsburg at the weekend. Andre Breitenreiter’s men are high on confidence ahead of the trip to Mainz, but considering that the hosts head into the game following back-to-back wins over Borussia M’gladbach and Hannover, a share of spoils appears on the horizon. When the two teams met earlier this season in Gelsenkirchen Schalke recorded a 2-1 win over Mainz, but it is well known that Die Nullfunfer are tough to beat at home.
