FC Mainz eye fourth Bundesliga spot against Schalke

FC Mainz eye fourth Bundesliga spot against Schalke

If FSV Mainz 05 are to seriously challenge for an European finish, then the CoFace Arena will have to be their platform. They are only three points behind fourth-placed Schalke 04 and will fancy their chances against the latter, when the Royal Blues head to Mainz.

Both sides have won their last two fixtures, with the 05ers defeating Borussia Monchengladbach and Hannover 96, 1-0 respectively, last time out. Meanwhile, Schalke went fourth after bruising victories over mid-table Darmstadt and VfL Wolfsburg, with a 3-0 over the latter.

That said, this is a top-tier clash. Picture this, if Mainz win, they’ll be fourth, if other results prove them right, like Darmstadt and Hamburger SV winning their respective matches over Bayer Leverkusen and Borussia Monchengladbach, respectively.

The Royal and Blues<however, will unleash their top scorer in Jaas Klaas Huntelaar , but will be wary of Mainz goal scorer, Turkish midfielder, Yunus Malli, who has scored 8 league goals this season.
