Schalke Prediction

Schalke sit fourth from bottom in the Bundesliga thanks to a recent three-match sequence without defeat which was enough to ensure their safety in the German top flight after a valuable and impressive 4-2 win away at Dortmund, which was followed with back-to-back points with draws against Augsburg and Bayer Leverkusen.

The hosts hold a 5 point cushion ahead of their visitors tonight, Stuttgart, who have at least avoided the automatic drop down to 2.Bundesliga, but now have to take their chances in the upcoming relegation play-offs.

Schalke’s cause though wasn’t helped by the fact that they’ve managed just 1 win out of their last 10 matches at their VELTINS-Arena which was a 2-1 win over Wolfsburg, and an overall record of 4-2-10 16/28 is something that they’ll need to improve upon next season if they’re to avoid a repeat of this season’s flirt with relegation.

Midfielder Caligiuri (7 goals) and forwards Embolo (5 goals) and Burgstaller (4 goals) look the most likely for the hosts here.

Stuttgart Prediction

Stuttgart head into the final day of the Bundesliga season knowing they’ll have to endure the lottery of the impending relegation play-offs as they trail Saturday afternoon’s hosts by an unassailable 5 points and now can’t be caught.

Stuttgart made a valiant attempt at trying to avoid a third from bottom finish as they registered 2 wins from their last 3 matches with wins over Borussia Moenchengladbach 1-0 and Wolfsburg 3-0, but it’s worth noting that both of these wins were recorded at their Mercedes-Benz-Arena, where they’ve won 6 of their total of 7 wins to date this season.

Needless to say, it’s been Stuttgart’s woeful form and results away from home that have done the damage for the visitors as a poor away record of 1-2-13 10/43 includes losing 9 of their last 10 matches on their travels.

As well as possessing the joint worst defensive record away from home in the Bundesliga (tied with relegated Hannover 96), Stuttgart have also failed to score in 9 of their 16 away matches to date.


Key-Facts – Schalke v Stuttgart

  • Schalke are unbeaten in their last 3 matches overall in the Bundesliga
  • Stuttgart have lost 9 of their last 10 away matches in the Bundesliga
  • Stuttgart have also failed to score in 9 of their 16 away matches to date


Betting Tips Verdict

Having confirmed their top flight safety, Schalke should be relaxed and confident of closing their season on a high note with a win here.
