Freiburg Preview – Can Freiburg use home comforts?

Freiburg will no doubt be relieved to be returning to the more familiar surroundings of their Schwarzwald-Stadion for this Saturday’s clash against bottom club, Schalke, as the hosts had lost three of their last four matches, all losses being incurred away from home.

Losses on the road at Mainz, M’gladbach and Arminia Bielefeld have resulted in Freiburg occupying a mid-table position of 10th place in the Bundesliga but they hold a reasonable record of 6-4-4 26/20 at home so far this season and they registered a 2-0 win over Augsburg last time they were on home soil.

Freiburg have also won the previous two meetings on the trot against Schalke.

Our betting suggestion:
Both teams to score

Schalke Preview – Can Schalke stay alive?

Despite registering a welcome and desperately needed 1-0 home win over Augsburg last weekend in the Bundesliga, it may well be a case of too little too late for Schalke as they still remain firmly rooted to the bottom of the German top flight.

Schalke’s situation now looks extremely desperate as the visitors are 13 points adrift of safety with just six league matches remaining of the campaign and they must grab a win here if they’re to give themselves a fighting chance of survival.

However, Schalke have still yet to win away from home as their away record of 0-4-9 9/42 indicates.
