Today's Predictions for Schalke vs Hertha Berlin

Relegation candidates Schalke and Hertha Berlin meet in a potentially crucial basement battle in the Bundesliga on Friday evening. Read our top Schalke vs Hertha Berlin predictions for this week’s fixture below.

Schalke to Win

With time running out to solidify survival bids, the Bundesliga’s bottom two sides. Schalke and Hertha Berlin, meet in a relegation tussle which looks like a ‘must-win’ game for both outfits. Both teams have comparably poor records this term, though Hertha have the league’s worst away record, with ten defeats, two draws and a single win from 13 outings on the road. That dismal run could be enough to give Schalke the edge on Friday, and we’re tipping the hosts to land a potentially decisive three points.

Both Teams to Score

The second of our football predictions today advises a step into the goals arena in Gelsenkirchen. While Hertha have found wins and even draws hard to come by on their travels, they have developed a canny knack for netting consolations and six of their last seven away assignments have featured goals at both ends as a result. In addition, BTTS has landed in three of the last four meetings between these sides, and another wager in that direction suits the factors here.

Let's take a closer look at the latest markets, Schalke – Hertha Berlin odds and probability figures ahead of Friday’s showdown below.

Schalke odds: 34/25 (2.36) – 43.4%

Draw odds: 49/20 (3.45) – 29%

Hertha Berlin odds: 21/10 (3.10) – 32.3%

Unsurprisingly, given Hertha Berlin’s dreadful away form, the visitors are not the expected winners this week and the probability of an away win currently stands at a low 32.3%. If you fancy over 2.5 goals to be hit the net, you can back that outcome with an implied probability of 48.8%, at 21/20 (2.05). Elsewhere, 1-0 win in Schalke’s favour is the correct score option with the tightest price at 6/1 (7.0).
