Today's Predictions for Schalke vs Stuttgart

Schalke have won only two of their 21 Bundesliga fixtures this season ahead of their clash with Stuttgart on Saturday. Read our top Schalke vs Stuttgart predictions for this weekend’s fixture below.

Share of the spoils at the VELTINS-Arena?

Rock-bottom Schalke have still won just two out of 21 Bundesliga assignments this season, though they have shown more spirit in recent weeks as evidenced by their run of four draws in the spin, the most recent of which was secured at title-chasing Union Berlin. With four decent results behind them, we expect Schalke to lean on the same gameplan on Saturday for the visit of Stuttgart, so don’t be surprised if the outcome is the same. With that in mind, our first Schalke vs Stuttgart prediction tips the relegation candidates to share the spoils.

Under 2.5 Goals

Schalke have battened down the hatches in recent weeks and while their fixtures haven’t been easy on the eye, they have started to put points on the board to aid their battle for survival. Indeed, 100% of Schalke’s last four games finished 0-0 and we expect them to take the same risk-averse approach into their meeting with Stuttgart on Saturday. With that in mind, the smart money goes on under 2.5 goals again here.

Schalke vs Stuttgart Team News & Injuries

Read all of the latest injury updates, Schalke vs Stuttgart lineups and team news for Saturday’s Bundesliga meeting below.

Schalke

Schalke have numerous personnel issues to contend with at present with Jere Uronen, Cedric Brunner, Tobias Mohr, Soichiro Kozuki, Tim Skarke, Sebastian Polter, Justin Heekeren and Seep van den Berg all out. Schalke dug out an unexpected point at Union Berlin in their last outing.

Predicted Lineup for Schalke: Fahrmann – Aydin, Yoshida, Jenz, Ouwejan – Kral, Krauß – Drexler, Zalazar, Bulter – Frey

Stuttgart

Defender Pascal Stenzel and attacker Serhou Guirassy are both out injured for Stuttgart this week. Stuttgart moved up to 14th place in the Bundesliga last weekend when they roared to a fine 3-0 win over Cologne. Tiago Tomas also missed that game and he could be absent again on Saturday.

Predicted Lineup for Stuttgart: Bredlow – Anton, Mavropanos, Ito, Sosa – Endo, Karazor, Haraguchi – Gil Dias, Fuhrich, Katompa Mvumpa

Player to Watch – Ralf Fährmann

Ralf Fährmann – who is usually a back-up keeper for Schalke – has enjoyed a remarkable run in the team of late and the 34-year-old has kept a clean sheet in each of his last four appearances for the club. In fact, that quartet of starts were Fährmann’s only Bundesliga runouts of the entire campaign so far, making his string of shutouts all the more impressive.

Starting Lineups

Official lineups are usually released approximately one hour before kick-off.
