Schalke Preview – Can Schalke make swift return to top flight?

It was a desperately disappointing season last term in the Bundesliga for Friday night’s hosts, Schalke, as they finished bottom of the German top flight with just 16 points to their name and the hosts will be eager to set the record straight this season, starting with Friday night’s clash against Hamburg.

Having won just two of their last seven matches and losing five of these, the writing was on the wall for Schalke but the hosts have produced some encouraging results in pre-season as they’re unbeaten in five matches, winning three and keeping four clean sheets.

Schalke have won four of their last five matches at home and they also possess a solid record against Hamburg as well, being unbeaten in their last seven meetings at home against Friday night’s visitors.

Our betting suggestion:
Both teams to score

Hamburg Preview – Can Hamburg go a step better?

Hamburg just missed out on a possible play-off spot at the end of last season’s Bundesliga 2 campaign, finishing four points behind the 3rd placed finishers, Holstein Kiel, who eventually lost 5-2 on aggregate against the existing Bundesliga outfit, Cologne, in the promotion play-off.

Hamburg ended last season on a high though as they registered a comprehensive 4-0 home win over Eintracht Braunschweig and they too have been in good form in pre-season, winning three of their four matches played, including notable wins against Silkeborg and Basel (both at home).

However, an area for improvement for Hamburg must be their form away from home as the visitors have managed to win just one of their last 10 matches overall on the road and this may be key on Friday night.
