Schalke 04 Prediction – Can Schalke jump into joint top spot?

All three points for Schalke in Friday night’s clash against 11th placed Union Berlin would indeed lift the hosts up into joint top spot and level on points with Bundesliga leaders, Borussia Moenchengladbach, and recent results suggest Schalke may very well do just that.

Schalke are unbeaten in their last 4 matches overall which includes away wins against Augsburg 3-2 and a 2-1 victory at Werder Bremen while also picking up points in draws with Borussia Dortmund 0-0 and 3-3 against Fortuna Dusseldorf.

5th placed Schalke have lost just twice in their 12 matches to date in the German top flight and they possess a solid looking home record of 2-3-1 which includes wins against Hertha Berlin and Mainz 05 in 3-0 and 2-1 victories.

Their one defeat on home turf so far was a 3-0 loss to Bayern Munich on their opening home match of the season, but the hosts have quickly bounced back and have been hard to beat since.

Midfielders Harit (6 goals) and Serdar (4 goals) have done most of the damage so far for the hosts.

Union Berlin Prediction – Can Union Berlin continue progress?

The Bundesliga newcomers have made a pretty good start to life in the domestic top flight in this their inaugural season in the Bundesliga as they currently occupy 11th place and have registered 4 wins out of their last 5 matches overall.

After a slow and poor start to their campaign which saw Union Berlin lose 5 of their first 7 matches overall and included just 1 win which was a 3-1 home win over Borussia Dortmund, the visitors now seem to be working up a head of steam prior to Friday night’s tricky looking trip to Schalke.

Recent wins against Freiburg, local rivals Hertha Berlin as well as Mainz 05 and most impressive of all, the current Bundesliga leaders, Borussia Moenchengladbach, have helped lift Union Berlin up to a more respectable looking mid-table position.

However, it should be noted that 3 of these recent 4 wins were recorded on home turf at their Stadion An der Alten Försterei where they’ve won 4 of their total of 5 wins to date this term, while their away record reads an ordinary looking 1-1-3 5/8 which includes defeats at Bayer Leverkusen, Wolfsburg and Bayern Munich.
