Schalke 04 vs Hoffenheim – Free Betting Tips & Predictions

Schalke have lost three Bundesliga fixtures on the bounce ahead of their tussle with Hoffenheim in Gelsenkirchen on Friday evening. Read our top predictions for this week’s fixture below.

Hoffenheim to Win

Schalke supporters are starting to get that sinking feeling again having watched their team lose three times on the spin in the Bundesliga and with a mounting injury list compounding their problems, Die Königsblauen look vulnerable again for the visit of Hoffenheim on Friday. Hoffenheim have lost just once in four matches and they can return to the top six with the right result this week. Schalke are in a real rut and having conceded seven times in their last two assignments, they look beatable again here. With that in mind, we recommend backing the visitors to claim all three points at the VELTINS-Arena.

Both Teams to Score

Circumstances favour Hoffenheim going into Friday’s game, though their haul of just one clean sheet in five matches suggests that they could concede in Gelsenkirchen, even if they do manage to carve out a positive result there. Schalke have a 100% strike rate at home this term, though they have yet to record a shutout. Indeed, both teams rattled the net in each of their first four matches at the VELTINS-Arena and a stake in the same market appeals at the prices on offer this week.
