Schalke Preview – Can Schalke halt losing slump?

It’s a new German top flight season but seemingly nothing has changed for Sunday’s hosts, Schalke, as they’ve continued their losing ways in the Bundesliga having lost their first three league matches on the trot of this new campaign.

Defeat to Bayern Munich in a 8-0 hammering away from home on the opening day of the season was followed by a 3-1 loss at home to Werder Bremen and a 4-0 loss on the road at RB Leipzig just before the international break, so confidence is likely to be fragile for this upcoming clash against Union Berlin.

The bigger picture looks even worse for Schalke as the hosts have failed to win any of their last 19 matches in the Bundesliga which consists of 13 defeats and 6 draws; while their last meeting with Union Berlin ended in a 1-1 draw away from home back in June of last term.

Our betting suggestion:
Both teams to score

Union Berlin Preview – Can Union Berlin win back-to-back?

Sunday’s visitors, Union Berlin, may feel that the international break came at the wrong time as they’d recorded a heavy 4-0 defeat over Mainz 05 just beforehand which was on the back of a creditable 1-1 draw on the road at M’gladbach.

Indeed, Union Berlin have made a recovery since their heavy opening day 3-1 defeat at home against Augsburg and they’ll feel that they stand a very good chance of picking up at least a point at Schalke on Sunday evening.

However, Union Berlin have managed to pick up just one win out of their last six matches on their travels which includes four defeats, so the prospects of an away win here seem unlikely.
