Match Preview

After starting their season with their third 0-0 draw in four Bundesliga games, before losing to the champions, Schalke have now recorded back-to-back multi-goal margin wins. Still, only two of their last seven league games have seen both sides score, with Schalke only scoring two first-half goals in that time.
At home it’s now four games on the trot to see just one side, or no side score, with Schalke firing a blank in three of those. It’s also just one victory in ten Bundesliga home games (D3, L6), with ‘Die Knappen’ failing to score in seven of those. Further highlighting a poor home record, no Bundesliga side has suffered more HT/FT defeats on home soil (9/19) since the start of last season.
Mainz finally snapped a three-game losing streak this Bundesliga season with victory last time out. Each of their last three games have seen them take the lead, while they’ve only been behind once at half-time this term. Highlighting a second-half weakness, ten of the league-high 13 league goals they’ve conceded have come in the second period.
Their two away defeats this term mean it’s now just one victory in ten league trips for Mainz (L9), with six of those coming despite a +1 handicap ‘headstart’. None of those ten games saw Mainz lead at the break.
Players to watch: Defender Salif Sane’s (SCH) last eight competitive scoring games for club sides have seen an average of 4.63 goals per game.
The last ten competitive games that Robin Quaison has scored in for Mainz have seen both sides score.
Stat attack: The last six H2H matches have seen just one side score.
Schalke have won five straight H2Hs at home, scoring first in each game and leading at half-time in four.
Dating back to the start of 2018/19, exactly 31.58% of Schalke and Mainz’s league games have been 0-0 at half-time.
