Today's Predictions for Schalke vs Eintracht Frankfurt

Can Schalke find a way to beat Eintracht Frankfurt when the teams meet in Gelsenkirchen for Saturday’s Bundesliga clash? Read our top Schalke vs Eintracht Frankfurt predictions for this weekend’s fixture below.

Over 2.5 Goals

Schalke have been pushing hard to pull clear of the Bundesliga’s relegation zone in recent weeks and their pursuit of points has made for entertaining viewing from a neutral – and from a bettors’ – perspective. Over 2.5 goals has landed in each of their last five matches and the same games averaged 5.0 goals per 90 minutes overall. Schalke will feel they can attack an Eintracht Frankfurt outfit that hasn’t quite cut the mustard in the back end of the campaign, and more excitement could be in the works at the VELTINS-Arena as a consequence.

Both Teams to Score

Both teams managed to impact the scoresheet in three of the last four meetings between Schalke and Eintracht Frankfurt, and the same market is available to back at favourable odds on Saturday. Siding with BTTS would have returned a winner in four of Schalke’s last five home tests, while five of Frankfurt’s last seven tussles in the Bundesliga have also featured action at both ends. With those factors aligned, were advising punters to stick with BTTS for the second of today’s Schalke vs Eintracht Frankfurt predictions.
