MATETA HITS THE POST!

What an incredible individual effort from Mateta. He is sent away down the right and beats Adams to the ball, touching it past the defender and into the Hoffenheim penalty area. Baumann comes out to close the angle and Mateta looks across goal, but can only watch as his shot comes back out off the post.

OMEN FOR HOFFENHEIM

Each of Bebou's last six goals for Hoffenheim have come in victories for him and his side. Will that record be extended today?

GAME OPENING UP

Mateta is getting involved once again as Mainz push themselves forward looking for a second go-ahead-goal. Hoffenheim, too, are looking to counter. This game could go either way in the final 20 minutes.

CHANCES AT BOTH ENDS!

Mainz almost go ahead after a corner drops in front of goal with a scramble being won by Baumann. Hoffenheim go straight up the other end and it's Kramaric who almost latches onto a long ball into the penalty area but it's just cleared ahead of him. We're in for an entertaining finish here.
64'
vs

HOW WILL MAINZ RESPOND?

Immediate pressure up the pitch is the answer, as Mainz have pushed their midfield and attack further up the pitch. A totally different look for them now having conceded their lead.
62'
vs

HOFFENHEIM HAVE THEIR GOAL!

Kramaric spots Sessegnon in just a touch of space out on the left wing and he does the right thing to fire the ball into the box with a low first-time cross. It's Bebou who meets it and smashes the ball past Zentner with his first of the season.

45'
vs

BIG CHANCE FOR BEBOU!

Baumgartner does well to battle beyond St. Juste towards the Hoffenheim box before playing Bebou in on goal down the right. He strikes at goal swiftly, but Zentner saves with his face to keep his side in front. Any way possible, he will keep a clean sheet!
41'
vs

BAUMGARTNER HAS A GO

The ball sits up for the Austrian 25 yards from goal and he decides to take a strike at goal. This one is wide of the mark though and Zentner is happy to let it go past him.
40'
vs

GAMEPLAN WORKING FOR MAINZ

The hosts have had just 38 percent of the ball, but have produced five shots on goal with their possession and, of course, that all-important goal to have the lead. Hoffenheim have had their chances but have only been able to test Zentner once in this first half.

That gameplan working to perfection for Litche's side. A pass forward from St. Juste to Mateta who holds up the ball in the Hoffenheim box. He backheels to send Boetius in behind and he immediately slams the ball across the face of goal for Quaison to tap home. A lovely team goal to open the scoring for Sunday!

POSING QUESTIONS

Mainz's gameplan is clear. Sit in deep and absorb pressure before moving the ball forward quickly on the counter-attack. It will be a test for Hoffenheim to breakdown, as Freiburg failed to do last week.
23'
vs

KRAMARIC GETTING INVOLVED

It had been a quiet start to the game for Hoffenheim's top scorer but he has moved out to the right wing to get involved in the game for the first time. He's looking to link up with Baumgartner and release Bebou as a creative lynchpin.
20'
vs

SO CLOSE TO THE OPENER!

Geiger sends a free-kick to the back post and Posch leaps above St. Juste to meet it with his head. But it's an outstanding reflex save from Zentner at his near post who pokes it away with his toe.
15'
vs

BIG CHANCE MATETA!

The ball bounces between Sessegnon and St. Juste from a corner and falls favourably to Mateta five yards out. He swings his left foot at it, but sends his shot high over the crossbar. He'll be disappointed with that.
14'
vs

BOETIUS FORCES A SAVE

Mainz still having the better of the attacking play here as a cut-back from Fernandes on the right into the box is met by Boetius. He takes a touch to beat one defender but can't get past Baumann with his shot.
12'
vs

SITTING DEEPER

The hosts look happy to be sat back here for the most part, leaving Mateta isolated in attack with five defenders looking to keep Hoffenheim at bay.
10'
vs

POSCH DOWN

The defender is down early on here after rolling his ankle. He will look to continue, but Bogarde is getting warmed up in case.
9'
vs

MATETA SO CLOSE!

Great first effort on goal as a cross from the left is half-cleared by Adams, sending the ball into the box further for Mateta to then head at goal. It's looping towards the net but Baumann produces a stunning finger-tip save to push the ball over his own crossbar.
6'
vs

EARLY PRESSURE

The hosts getting forward early on here with Quaison involved down the right flank. They will be looking to make the most of set-piece opportunities, and get Mateta involved as quickly as possible.
2'
vs

A DIFFERENT SET-UP

Hoffenheim look to be lining up in a 4-3-3 here in the early stages. Posch at right-back, Grillitsch in the No.10 spot while it's Baumgartner, Bebou and Kramaric up front.

KICK-OFF APPROACHING

Warm-ups are done and we're ready for the action. Mainz looking to build on their first win of the season last time out, while Hoffenheim - sitting 12th - are looking for their first win in six games since that big win over Bayern Munich.

WATCH: MAINZ'S FIRST WIN OF THE SEASON

Mateta's hat-trick earned Mainz three points for the first time this season last time out against Freiburg. Can they now make it two from two as they look to break away from the relegation places?

The Mainz attacking midfielder has scored three goals in his last four games against Hoffenheim.

ZENTNER ON FORM

Robin Zentner has saved more shots (34) than any other goalkeeper this campaign.
vs

MATETA VS. KRAMARIC!

Today's game sees two of the league's top scorers go head-to-head. Mateta's hat-trick against Freiburg on Matchday 8 puts him on seven goals for the season, behind only Lewandowski (11) and Haaland (10). The French forward is the first player in Mainz's history to have so many goals to his name at this stage of a season. Kramaric also has seven goals this term: he has scored in all four of the matches he has played in. The Croatian is the best penalty taker in the league at present, having scored all three spot-kicks taken in 2020/21.

INTENSE GAME NONETHELESS

Despite neither side being able to produce any genuine clear-cut chances on goal, this has been an incredibly intense game. Most of the reason behind our lack of goals here so far is the pressing of both sides when they are out of possession.
52'
vs

GOOD OMENS HERE

In their last 14 meetings, Hertha and Leverkusen have not ended a match in a draw. Labbadia has also yet to draw a Bundesliga game as Hertha coach, while this fixture has never finished goalless. A good omen to see some scoring in this second half.
50'

NOT FAR AWAY

Lovely play from Darida who sends Pekarik in behind the Leverkusen defence and he reaches the byline but may have taken a touch too many as he misjudges his cross which goes away from danger in the end.

WIRTZ EVERYWHERE

The Bundesliga's youngest-ever goalscorer, who is still only 17, has been getting everywhere across the pitch so far. He's demanding the ball from his teammates and producing some fantastic interplay to get the likes of Bailey, Diaby and Schick involved around him. He's a real talent.
39'
vs

BENDER GETTING INVOLVED

The captain - who is operating at right-back - has his third shot on goal of the game already. All of them have been either blocked or deflected, much to his dismay, but he's been heavily involved in the attacking third.
35'
vs

NOW FOR BAILEY

The Jamaican is the next to take a shot from range as he is found in space. He curls this one low towards the right of the goal but Schwolow is equal to it one more. Leverkusen being forced to take shots from range so far.
33'
vs

WHAT A HIT FROM DEMIRBAY!

The midfielder turns quickly on the ball in midfield and hits a superb dipping shot at goal from all of 30 yards. Schwolow watches it all the way and makes sure to send it over his own crossbar. The best effort we've seen at either end so far.

LEVERKUSEN TAKING CONTROL

The hosts looking to keep the ball for longer periods of time here, staying patient in possession to try and break down the Hertha press.
14'
vs

EARLY PRESSING

Hertha are giving Leverkusen no room to breathe on the ball so far, and forcing their hosts into giving up the ball easily. So far so good for the capital club.
12'
vs

LUKEBAKIO AGAIN

Hertha with some tidy interplay up the pitch as Cunha plays Lukebakio in on goal. He has to slide to reach this ball, though, and can't get enough power behind his shot which Hradecky saves with ease.
9'
vs

LUKEBAKIO NOT FAR AWAY!

Boyata's long ball into the Leverkusen box meets Lukebakio's run and he is inches from being able to bring it down before having a shot against Hradecky. This one is gathered by the grateful Finn between the Leverkusen sticks.
8'
vs

HERTHA ON THE BALL

The away side slightly edging the possession in these early stages but it's Leverkusen who have looked a little more threatening when on the ball. Neither side able to produce a real chance on goal so far.
3'

WIRTZ INVOLVED EARLY ON

The 17-year-old is getting on the ball quickly here in his advanced midfield role - ahead of Baumgartlinger and Demirbay. He will be a key man for Leverkusen today.

WHAT'S AT STAKE

Leverkusen could leap into second place with a win this afternoon. Hertha, on the other hand, are sat in 13th and four points behind Werder Bremen in 12th.
vs

IN-FORM VS. OUT OF FORM

Leverkusen come into this one on a five-game winning run in the Bundesliga, their longest such spell since early 2016. As such, they are the most in-form team in the league. Meanwhile, Hertha have won just once in their last seven outings in the Bundesliga.
0:13
vs

WATCH: GETTING WARM

Both sides are out warming up in Leverkusen. It's a cold winter day in the North-West of Germany today, so don't be too surprised if you see a few pairs of gloves and long-sleeved shirts out and about.
vs

THE MISSING PIECE

Cunha has found the target in five different games for Hertha in 2020/21, but his side have only won two of those. In fact, Hertha have gone 1-0 up in each of their last four matches, but only went on to earn maximum points in one of them (against Augsburg). Meanwhile, striker Krzysztof Piatek has hit the woodwork twice this season, more than any other player in the league.
vs

LEVERKUSEN LOVE A SUNDAY

Our fun fact of the day is that Die Werkself have won more games on a Sunday than any other team in Bundesliga history (80 from 164). They have drawn 39 of those and lost 45. They are also unbeaten in their last 10 outings on Sundays (seven wins).
vs

STILL LOOKING SCHICK?

Leverkusen may be without Alario - third in the overall scorers' list with seven goals this season - but in his place they have Patrik Schick, who returned to full fitness in style during the week as he scored in Leverkusen's UEFA Europa League win over Hapoel Be'er Sheva. It's the former Leipzig loanee's first start since Matchday 3, and his return will be welcomed by an injury-hit Leverkusen squad.

vs

A THING OF BEAUTY

Raman's opener was a delightful hit on the volley.
28'
vs

UTH HITS THE POST!

A superb free-kick from Uth which kisses the outside of Sommer's post on its way past the goal. That was in a near-identical position to the one he scored against Mainz a few weeks ago.
26'
vs

LAZARO BOOKED

A rash challenge from the right-back on Raman and he is shown the first caution of the game.

STRUGGLING TO BEAT THE PRESS

Gladbach's issue so far has been in beating Schalke's high-press in this first-half. The away side are high up the pitch and contesting every one-on-one battle across Borussia-Park.
22'

UTH THE MAN FOR SCHALKE

Mark Uth has now been involved in four of Schalke's six goals this season, with two goals and as many assists.
20'

WHAT A FINISH FROM RAMAN!

A superb team goal from Schalke and it's a first in the Bundesliga for Raman since December 2019. Uth latches onto Thuram's sloppy pass and flicks the ball over the Gladbach defence for Raman to meet into the box and he sends the ball into the top corner with an outstanding volley. A finish of class from the Belgian!

SCHALKE KEEPING THEIR HEADS UP

The Royal Blues made a bright start here but one fine tackle from Zakaria and Gladbach have been able to take the lead. Manuel Baum will be hoping his troops stick to the gameplan.
18'
vs

TWO IN TWO FOR FLO!

Neuhaus put Gladbach ahead last weekend against Augsburg and has done the same again here for the Foals. That's two in as many games for the Germany international.
15'
vs

NEUHAUS PUTS GLADBACH AHEAD!

A swift counter and Gladbach take the lead. Zakaria wins the ball from Uth and the ball goes forward to Plea, whose pass into the penalty area is superb for Embolo. His attempt is cleared to the edge and Neuhaus meets it first-time and five Schalke defenders can't keep it out as they scramble on the goalline, but the ball finds its way over the line.

SKRZYBSKI HEADS WIDE

The bright start from Schalke continues as Uth's cross is headed wide by Skrzybski. The away side lining up in a 4-4-2 here, with Uth and Hoppe leading the attack. So far, so good.
9'
vs

HOPPE NOT FAR AWAY

The American's run in behind the Gladbach defence is spotted by Thiaw, who clips the ball into the Gladbach area for him to chase. He fires a first-time shot across goal ahead of Ginter, but sends it wide across goal beyond Sommer.
9'
vs

ZAKARIA FIRES WIDE

The midfielder races forward to get on the end of Thuram's cross deflected out to the edge of the box. But he gets his strike all wrong, sending it well wide of the target.
7'
vs

ZAKARIA BACK

The Swiss international is starting in the Bundesliga for the first time since March here. A key man for Gladbach in central midfield.
5'
vs

SCHALKE SET-UP

The Royal Blues lining up with a four-man defence, with Thiaw at left-back and Ludewig at right-back. Uth is leading the attacking with Hoppe alongside him, and both Raman and Skrzybski wide.
4'

UTH ON TARGET

Schalke have the game's first attempt on goal as Raman breaks away before finding Uth in attack. He cuts back onto his left-foot, but his shot is easily saved by Sommer.

10 MINUTES TO KICK-OFF!

It's been an exhilarating Matchday so far with drama and upsets galore in our first six matches of the weekend. One more to come here this evening in Gladbach before our Sunday double-header tomorrow.

FORTRESS FOALS

Gladbach are unbeaten at home in 2020/21, winning one and drawing three. If Schalke want to get their first win since January, it will come against the odds here against Gladbach.

WATCH: GOOD MEMORIES FOR SCHALKE

The Royal Blues' last win in the Bundesliga came against Gladbach last season, way back in January of this year. Since then they have been on an unwanted 24-game winless streak in the league, the second-longest in Bundesliga history with only Tasmania Berlin (32) enduring a longer run without victory.
vs

MARADONA TRIBUTES

Gladbach are currently playing the famous "life is life" song associated with Maradona and his famous warm-up video from his days at Napoli in Italy. The two teams will also meet for a minute's silence this evening, as has every team in the Bundesliga this weekend.

GLADBACH TEAM NEWS

Now free of injury and illness, Marcus Thuram and Alassane Plea are deployed in tandem with Breel Embolo for company and captain Lars Stindl rested after helping the Foals to a 4-0 win over Shakhtar Donestk in midweek. Denis Zakaria made his comeback last time out after a long-term knee injury and starts here. After two frustrating results in the Bundesliga - a 4-3 loss to fellow European hopefuls Bayer Leverkusen and a 1-1 draw with 10-man Augsburg - Gladbach will be determined to get back to winning ways.
vs

SCHALKE TEAM NEWS

Manuel Baum has to deal with a spate of absentees this weekend, including striker Goncalo Paciencia; American youngster Matthew Hoppe deputises for the Portugal international alongside Mark Uth. Suat Serdar returned from a hamstring injury last weekend and should help shore up the midfield. Bastian Oczipka pulled his thigh in training on Tuesday, though. Frederik Rönnow continues in goal, with second-choice Ralf Fährmann sidelined at any rate by a groin strain.

SCHALKE'S NEW HOPPE!
