Schalke 04 - Werder Bremen (Bundesliga)

Everybody in Gelsenkirchen want to forget the match with Real Madrid in the Champions League played during the week and lost with 0:2. Schalke has been aware that has a minimal chance against white ballet and now has to concentrate on the battle for the Top 4 in the Bundesliga. Now at "Veltins-Arena" arrives convenient rival, who has been defeated with 3:0 in the autumn. Schalke fans hope of an easy victory, but the form of Werder Bremen in the New Year is deadly. We expect endlessly exciting match of the 22nd round of the Bundesliga. The odds for the game offered by the leading bookmaker bet365 are as follows: 2.05 for a home win, with a draw at 3.50 and 3.60 for the victory of the guests.

The defeat from Real Madrid was expected and now Roberto Di Matteo has to adjust his team to battle on the home front. In the game against white ballet, Italian specialist has available the star of Schalke - Klaas-Jan Huntelaar. For the matches in the Bundesliga, the Dutchman is suspended and will not play against Werder. This means that Eric Choupo-Moting will be the only striker for Schalke against Werder. He will be assisted by the rear edge of Kevin-Prince Boateng and Tranquillo Barnetta. In the camp of hosts still have quite injured players. Because of injuries, the match against Werder miss Jefferson Farfan, Julian Draxler, Chinedu Obasi and both goalkeepers Ralf Fahrmann and Fabian Giefer. In their absence Timon Wellenreuther will start in the frame. He showed good class against Real Madrid and Di Matteo should be calm for the presentation of the goalkeeper. Despite his weak performances against Real, central defender Joel Matip will keep his place among the holders of Schalke.

Fifth consecutive victory in the Bundesliga for Werder Bremen came against Augsburg (3:2) and now the team takes the 8th position in the standings, only 3 points of the places entitling participation in tournaments. All of the camp of Bremen are delighted with the work of Viktor Skrypnyk and can be safely said that Werder is the pleasant surprise of the spring season. Now for this important visit on "Veltins-Arena", Skrypnyk is not being able to rely on the injured Philipp Bargfrede, Melvyn Lorenzen, Marnon Busch, Alex Galvez and Ozkan Yildirim. Assani Lukimya-Mulongoti will earn a place in central defence and in midfield will be the young Felix Kroos.

The composition of the hosts has important absences, which can affect on the performance of Schalke. Werder Bremen is in great shape and we think that guests will leave with a point or three from the forbidding "Veltins-Arena".

Prediction Schalke - Werder Bremen: X2
Security: 6/10
Odds: 1.80 at bet365

Borussia Dortmund - Mainz 05 (Bundesliga)

Everybody are asking whether the hosts will escape relegation. Jurgen Klopp`s boys made a big step with victory over Freiburg in the last round. Now they take Mainz 05 of whom lost with 2:0 in the first part of the championship. Guests are not presented convincingly and remains not far from the danger zone. This fight can answer to many of the experts question - whether Borussia Dortmund can be pulled to the second division. The odds for the game offered by the leading bookmaker bet365 are as follows: 1.33 for a home win, with a draw at 5.25 and 9.50 for the victory of the guests.

Success on the field of Freiburg will inspire confidence to the boys of Jurgen Klopp. All experts believe that Borussia can not fall. A nice series of wins can climb the team in the standings and is now very felicitous moment for new success. For the game against Mainz, Klopp hardly afford to make many changes in the composition. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang will lead the attack after his two goals in the door of Freiburg last weekend. The other two strikers - Ciro Immobile and Adrian Ramos will stay on the bench and they will appear in the second half if there is a negative result. Klopp will choose between Sokratis and Piszczek on the right back. With injures in the camp of Borussia are Kevin Grosskreutz, Sebastian Kehl, Sven Bender, Erik Durm and Jakub Blaszczykowski.

After sonorous victory with 5:0 over Paderborn at the start of the spring part of the championship, the team of Mainz recorded a draw with Hanover (1: 1) and lost at home to Hertha (0:2). The boys of Kasper Hjulmand must improve their level in order not to go dangerously close to the relegation zone. In autumn Mainz defeated Borussia Dortmund with 2:0 in their stadium and now will try to get at least a partial success. Danish coach of Mainz can not rely on the injured Jairo Samperio, Christoph Moritz and Todor Nedelev . Because of his red card in the game against Hertha - goalkeeper Loris Carius misses the match and will be replaced by Stefanos Kapino under the frame. Mainz will struggle with a negative trend in this visit. The Reds have not won in their last eight away matches in Bundesliga and will try to change this fact.

Both teams are leaning against the wall and will not want to lose. Borussia scoring difficult at home and Mainz almost certainly will be closed and will rely on counterattacks. Given the importance of the game is unlikely to see many hits in the game.

Prediction Borussia Dortmund - Mainz 05: Under 3.5 goals
Security: 7/10
Odds: 1.525 at bet365
