Schalke Team News

The home team players seemed to have learned their lesson after the end of last season. Then, literally in the final minutes, they managed to save their place in the Bundesliga. Looking at their current performance and form, they are well on their way to finding themselves in a similar situation this season.

They have only six points won in nine games played and are only two points more than last-placed Bochum. What sets them apart so far is their defensive play. They conceded as many as twenty-one goals; according to that parameter, only Bochum is worse than them. They are on a streak of three consecutive defeats, and in those three games, they conceded eight goals.

The state of the club was seen in the last round against Leverkusen when the Schalke players seemed powerless on the field, and I can thank the Bayer players for not punishing them more severely.

Hoffenheim Team News

We are already used to Hoffenheim being at the top of the table, which is the same this season. After nine games, they have four wins, two draws, and three losses, so they are in seventh place in the table with fourteen points.

What these numbers don’t say is that they are only six points behind first-placed Union Berlin, so the Bundesliga has never been more even. However, not everything is so great with the visiting team.

They won only two points in the last three meetings, which spoiled their plans in many ways.

They received a severe slap in the last round when they lost at home to Werder by 2:1, although they had complete control on the field. Hoffenheim has the quality to join the Champions League fight; to get there, they need to stop losing points in “small games.”

Schalke vs. Hoffenheim Prediction

Time is slowly running out for the home team, and they are in a situation where every point is worth their weight in gold. On the other hand, Hoffenheim is “chasing” a place in the Champions League, but it is also in a series of negative results, so they don’t have the luxury of losing new points either.

In our opinion, this means only one thing – a more dynamic match and, therefore, a slightly higher number of goals. Both teams have had many defensive problems lately, which further increases the “value” of betting on the number of goals in such games.
