Schalke vs Hamburg: Our top Predictions

All of our tips contain no bias and have been researched using the latest stats and figures available at the time of publication.

The odds provided are up to date at the time of publication. Odds are subject to change though and you should always check with your bookmaker before placing any bets. Our recommended bookmaker for this match is Netbet.

BTTS

We're expecting goals in this game at both ends of the pitch as has been the case in four of the last six meetings between the two clubs. Last season, Schalke had a dreadful defensive record and while they are playing at a low standard this campaign, many of those poor performing players remain at the club. Hamburg looked very sharp going forward last season and were unlucky not to earn promotion, so their attack should get plenty of chances against this Schalke defence.

Under 2.5 Goals

Both of these teams have been playing a selection of friendly matches ahead of the new season, as per usual, and under 2.5 goals have been produced in two of Schalke's last three fixtures and in three of Hamburg's last four outings, so you can see why we're limiting this game to two goals or fewer.

1-1 Draw

In terms of a final scoreline, we're backing Friday's clash to end in a 1-1 draw. Schalke are the slight favourites to win this game with the majority of the major bookmakers but they were very poor in the Bundesliga last season and most of that squad remains in place. Hamburg, on the other hand, performed very well last season and are used to this level of football now, so you can see why we've backed this game to end all square.

How will Schalke start life back in the second tier?

Schalke couldn't have asked for a much tougher first game of the season than former Bundesliga side Hamburg but they do at least have the home advantage. Schalke have a decent recent record against Hamburg and will be looking for a positive start to the new season, one they will be hoping, ends in promotion. Schalke have brought in a number of new faces this season including Bulter from Union Berlin, Ranftl from LASK, Palsson from Darmstadt and even Terodde on a free transfer from Friday's guests Hamburg. However, McKennie, Serder, Raman, Tekpetey, Kutucu and Uth have left the club following their relegation from the Bundesliga.

Hamburg finished in 4th place last season, narrowly missing out on the promotion places by 4pts after a late drop in form. This season the former Bundesliga side have brought it the likes of Glatzel, Meffert, Muheim. Schonlau, Reis and Kaufmann to help take them to the next level but lost van Drongelen to Union Berlin, Terodde to Schalke and Ulreich to Bayern Munich, while Hunt left the club on a free transfer. A positive result on Friday could give Hamburg just the momentum they need to put a good run together and finally make their return to the top flight.
