Eintracht Frankfurt vs Schalke
Germany – Bundesliga
Date: Wednesday, 17 June 2020
Kick-off at 17:30 UK/ 18:30 CET
Venue: Commerzbank-Arena (Frankfurt).
The Royal Blues are currently one of the worst teams in the whole competition. The only reason they are still placed in the top half of the table is due to the performances they delivered earlier in the campaign.
Meanwhile, the Eagles were going through a similar phase, but the fact that the season is about to come to an end must have sprung them into action. At present, they seem to be playing displaying their older levels.
As such, expect Frankfurt to take advantage of their game against the struggling Schalke, and post the three points on the board.

Eintracht Frankfurt vs Schalke: Prediction
The Eagles recorded a 1-4 win on the road the last match-day, against Hertha. The hosts had begun on a positive note, but the red card they received just before half time messed up their momentum.
After the break, the visitors scored four goals one after the other to secure their win.
In the meantime, the Royal Blues were held to a 1-1 draw at home the past game week, by Leverkusen. They did have the opportunity to win, as they were leading 1-0 (due to a penalty) at the 81st minute.
However, the unfortunate own goal equalized the scorelines, and the Leverkusen defense then held strong till the final whistle.
As things stand, the Eagles have the upper hand. The foremost reason would be the current form of their counterparts. The Royal Blues had lost seven of their previous ten games, and are also winless in their last fifteen fixtures.
On the road, the last they won was back in November, and they also had failed to score in five of their preceding seven such trips. On the other hand, the Eagles had won three of their past five match-ups, and even had scored two or more goals in all of these wins.
Going on, the Eagles also have an unbeaten record in h2h clashes at this venue since 2010, and even kept clean sheets during the period, in all but two games.
Considering all these stats, it’s more then evident that Eintracht Frankfurt are on course to record a win this Wednesday.
