Sunday's Bundesliga predictions including Schalke vs. Bayer Leverkusen

Sports Mole provides score predictions for Sunday's Bundesliga matches, including Schalke vs. Bayern Leverkusen and Mainz vs. Augsburg.

Mainz 05 play host to Augsburg on Sunday afternoon with just one point separating the two teams in the Bundesliga standings.

While the home side sit in 15th place, three points ahead of Fortuna Dusseldorf, the visitors currently occupy 13th position ahead of attempting to mathematically guarantee their top-flight status for another 12 months.

We say: Mainz 05 1-1 Augsburg


Like many teams in and around them in the standings, onus is currently being placed on not suffering defeat, rather than taking risks with pushing for all three points. Right now, a draw would be deemed acceptable by both clubs, and a low-scoring affair could play out.

Schalke vs. B. Leverkusen (Sunday, 5.00pm)

Bayer Leverkusen make the trip to the VELTINS-Arena on Sunday afternoon looking for a victory which will boost their chances of achieving Champions League football for next season.

Meanwhile, Schalke 04, having ended their run of defeats last weekend, know that an end-of-season push is required to finish in the top half of the Bundesliga standings.

We say: Schalke 04 1-3 Bayer Leverkusen


Aware that they can ill-afford many more dropped points, we expect Leverkusen to attack Schalke from the off on Sunday. Should they succeed in finding an early goal, the visitors may enjoy a comfortable afternoon.
