Arminia Bielefeld vs Schalke Prediction
Uwe Neuhaus’s men are on a three-match unbeaten streak at the moment, and are just two points behind table-toppers Hamburger, back in the 2. Bundesliga. The hosts, however, have been struggling to get things going for them at home this season. They have just one win to boast of from their last five games here.
Schalke, on the other hand, are sporting a dismal three-match winless run in the top flight. Their last clash at home saw them pick a point off of Dortmund, while their previous outing saw them at the losing end of a 2-0 scorecard against Hoffenheim.
Be that as it may, it goes without saying that the visitors feature in a far tougher domestic league, as opposed to Arminia Bielefeld who are currently dwelling in the second division. Furthermore, Schalke have been the ones securing the bragging rights in each of their last five visits to this venue, and have done so with a clean sheet intact in all of those games as well.
With the away side also tasting success in two out of their last three trips on the road, Arminia Bielefeld are more than likely to be given a run for their money on Tuesday.
In addition, Schalke’s frontline have been clinical in their outings so far, and have racked up eight goals from their previous three alone. The visitors have also been scoring no less than two goals in each of their last two head to head clashes here.
Taking into account that they slotted five unanswered goals in the previous round of the DFB Pokal Cup as well, count on Schalke to net at least twice before the end of the ninety minutes in this one.
