Schalke Prediction – Can Schalke bounce back?

A 2-1 defeat away from home at 7th placed Bayer Leverkusen ended Schalke’s recent promising run of 5 matches without defeat in the Bundesliga, but the hosts return to the more familiar surroundings of their VELTINS-Arena for this Sunday afternoon’s clash against struggling Eintracht Frankfurt, and will be confident that they can bounce back with all three points here.

Recent wins against Augsburg, Werder Bremen and Union Berlin were backed up with valuable points in draws with Borussia Dortmund and Fortuna Dusseldorf, while results on home turf have been pretty solid and reliable in recent matches for Schalke.

The hosts possess a stubborn home record which stands at 3-3-1 11/9 and also includes a 6-match unbeaten sequence heading into this Sunday’s clash, having recorded wins over Hertha Berlin, Mainz and Union Berlin.

Schalke now look a different prospect under former Huddersfield Town manager, David Wagner, and the hosts look in good shape to extend their unbeaten run at home and to their points tally too.

Eintracht Frankfurt Prediction – Can Frankfurt halt slide?

3 defeats and a draw for the visitors, Eintracht Frankfurt, mean that Adi Hutter’s side have taken just 1 point out of the last possible 12 on offer thanks to defeats against Freiburg, Wolfsburg and Mainz which has left Eintracht Frankfurt in 12th place on the Bundesliga table and 6 points above the relegation play-off spot.

The visitors make their way to Schalke for this Sunday’s important German top flight clash on the back of another disappointing defeat in the Europa League during the week when they were handed a 3-2 loss at home by Portuguese side, Vitoria Guimaraes, but Frankfurt had already qualified for the next phase of the competition.

However, Eintracht Frankfurt will do well to claim even a top six finish in this season’s Bundesliga as they find themselves 7 points adrift of 6th placed Freiburg, while results away from home have been simply woeful so far this season.

An away record of 1-0-5 7/12 includes losing 5 of their last 6 matches on their travels, while the bigger picture shows it’s now 7 defeats out of their last 8 matches on the road in the German top flight, and they’ll be up against a solid Schalke outfit in Sunday’s clash.

In addition, 4 wins out of their last 16 away matches doesn’t inspire much confidence in Eintracht Frankfurt here, and they’ll do well to walk away with a point in this one I fancy.


Key-Facts – Schalke vs Eintracht Frankfurt

  • Schalke are unbeaten in their last 6 matches at home in the Bundesliga
  • Eintracht Frankfurt have lost 5 of their last 6 matches on their travels
  • Eintracht Frankfurt have managed just 4 away wins out of last 16 on road


Betting Tips Verdict

Schalke look the better equipped to take the points here but use the handicap on the hosts.
