Eight place Mainz 05 will be hosting relegation candidates Schalke 04 on Friday at the MEWA-Arena in Mainz. Last week, Mainz’s ambitions of qualifying for Europe were dashed while Schalke raised their chances of survival.
Mainz is coming to this game off with a loss against Wolfsburg on Sunday, losing 3-0 in the Bundesliga. The game against Wolfsburg ended their 10 game unbeaten streak. With four games remaining, their outstanding run of 22 points out of a possible 30 puts them three points behind sixth place Bayer Leverkusen. The club will depend on its potent offensive, which has scored twenty two goals in the last eleven games and has only gone scoreless on one occasion, to produce positive results. Due to the possibility that the result of the DFB-Pokal final may prevent seventh place in the league from becoming available for a European spot, Mainz must win this game in order to put pressure on the teams above them. Mainz will not be able to select Jonathan Burkardt and Silvan Widmer for his game due to injury.

After being promoted once more this season, Schalke 04 has just four games left to try to prevent being demoted to the second level of German football, currently standing in 17th place and fighting to stay out of the relegation battle. The team has only won one of their 14 away games this season, which is a major contributing factor to their current predicament. It’s important to remember that Schalke 04 won their first meeting with Mainz this season by a score of 1-0 on Matchday 14. Justin Heekeren, Sichiro Kozuki, Ralf Farhmann, Tim Skarke, Moritz Jenz, and Eder Balanta are still in recovery and will not be available for this match.
