Schalke 04 vs Mainz 05 Odds: 19/20

The first game on this list comes from the Bundesliga, as bottom of the table Schalke host 17th placed Mainz at the VELTINS Arena.

The Royal Blues come into this match having sacked former Tottenham manager Christian Gross after two months in charge, replacing him with former Darmstadt coach Dimitrios Grammozis.

At present Schalke have the worst defence in Europe’s top five leagues, having conceded 61 goals in 23 games, only scoring 16 goals, leaving them with a goal difference of minus 45. Whilst Mainz have the second-worst defence in the division, having conceded 44.

Over 2.5 goals have been scored in three of Schalke’s last four games, in heavy defeats to the likes of RB Leipzig, Borussia Dortmund and Stuttgart.

Meanwhile, Mainz have been involved in two games of late with over 2.5 goals in them, as in mid-February, they managed an impressive 2-2 draw against Bayer Leverkusen at the Bay Arena, before beating Borussia Monchengladbach 2-1 a week later.

This game is priced at 19/20 to have over 2.5 goals in it, which is fair odds considering the defensive records of both sides.
