Schalke vs Mainz

Schalke can sneak into the top four zone with a home victory over Mainz. The visitors themselves can go level on points with Schalke with a win.

The driving force for the Royal Blues is Germany international Leon Goretzka, who has scored in his past two Bundesliga games, a career first.

Schalke are enjoying a fine start, having amassed 13 points, almost double of what they had at the same stage last season.

Much of the success can be attributed to their set-pieces, where seven goals have been scored from there, matching the total outlay over the entire campaign of 2016/17.

Mainz have won just one of their 11 previous trips to Schalke, a 3-1 in May 2011.
