Today's Predictions for Freiburg vs Schalke

Can Freiburg make home advantage count when they host relegation candidates Schalke in Bundesliga on Sunday? Read our top Freiburg vs Schalke predictions for this weekend’s fixture below.

Freiburg to Win

Top-four chasing Freiburg have lost only once in their last 13 Bundesliga assignments at the Europa-Park Stadion and they are strong enough on their own patch to extract three points from a test there against Schalke on Sunday. The visitors have failed to win all but one of their away fixtures in 2022/23, and the record isn’t likely to improve here. With the hosts a formidable force on home soil, our opening Freiburg vs Schalke prediction backs the Breisgau-Brasilianer to prevail.

Both Teams to Score

The second of our football predictions today advises bettors to consider a stake on both teams to score this weekend. Remarkably, BTTS has landed in seven of Freiburg’s last eight home games in the Bundesliga, while four of Schalke’s last seven tests in the division have also featured action at both ends. We expect chances to be created by both sides again on Sunday in what could be an open affair, so stick with BTTS again here.

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

Freiburg odds: 79/100 (1.79) – 55.9%

Draw odds: 14/5 (3.80) – 26.3%

Schalke odds: 18/5 (4.60) – 21.7%

Unsurprisingly, given Schalke’s dismal away form, the visitors are not this weekend’s expected winners the probability of an away win currently stands at a small 21.7%. If you fancy over 2.5 goals to be notched, you can back that outcome with an implied probability of 52.4%, at 10/11 (1.91). Elsewhere, 2-1 win in Freiburg’s favour is the correct score option that catches the eye at 7/1 (8.0).

Freiburg vs Schalke Team News & Injuries

Read all of the latest injury updates, Freiburg vs Schalke lineups and team news for Sunday’s Bundesliga contest below.

Freiburg

Midfielder Daniel-Kofi Kyereh is a long-term absentee for Freiburg, while defender Manuel Gulde is expected to be out of action until next month with a thigh problem.

Schalke

Schalke have a long list of absentees which includes Cedrib Brunner, Soichiro Kozuki, Justin Heekeren, Ralf Fahrmann and Tim Starke while Sebastian Polter remains a long-term absentee. Tom Krauß is also out through suspension, while Maya Yoshida and Eder Balanta are doubtful.

Player to Watch – Lucas Höler

Lucas Höler continued his late season resurgence for Freiburg last weekend when he notched a goal and an assist in his team’s 2-1 win at Werder Bremen. The 28-year-old has scored all four of his Bundesliga goals this term since the turn of the year and he could be one to watch again on Sunday.
