Schalke vs Freiburg – Free Betting Tips & Predictions

Schalke have lost each of their last five fixtures in the Bundesliga ahead of their tussle with highflying Freiburg on Sunday. Read our top predictions for this weekend’s fixture below.

Freiburg to Win

Schalke’s 2-1 loss at Hertha Berlin last weekend was their fifth reverse on the bounce in the Bundesliga and with relegation fears starting to mount, there has been a change in the dugout and Thomas Reis will take charge of the team for the first time this weekend. Facing a new manager bounce won’t frighten a Freiburg team flying high in third spot, however, especially after Christian Streich’s charges restored some confidence with a 2-0 win over Werder Bremen last time out. Freiburg have the class to overcome any resurgence in Schalke’s ranks on Sunday so side with the visitors here.

Over 2.5 Goals

Only Bochum have conceded more goals than Schalke in the Bundesliga this season and Die Königsblauen have looked more like relegation candidates with every passing week in the German top flight. Each of their last four matches produced over 2.5 goals as the Schalke defence struggled to stem the flow and more action could be on the menu when Freiburg visit Gelsenkirchen on Sunday. Three of Freiburg’s last four tussles on the road featured three or more goals and we’re tipping this weekend’s clash to follow suit.

Thomas Reis won't be able to call upon the services of Leo Greiml, Rodrigo Zalazar, Sepp van den Ber, Ibrahima Cisse and Marcin Kaminski in his first game in charge of Schalke this weekend. With the team's goal difference at -15, even a victory against Freiburg won't be enough to drag Schalke out of the bottom three.

Freiburg Predicted Lineup

Jonathan Schmid, Manuel Gulde, Roland Sallai and Kimberly Ezekwem are all out of contention for Freiburg this weekend. The Champions League qualification chasers bounced back from an off day at Bayern to beat Werder Bremen 2-0 last time out.
