Eintracht Frankfurt vs Schalke 04
Date: Sunday, 11 November 2018
Kick-Off at 17:00 UK / 18:00 CET
Venue: Commerzbank-Arena (Frankfurt).
Eintracht and Schalke will drop the curtain on the Matchday No 11 in Bundesliga on Sunday afternoon at Commerzbank-Arena. Both teams will come into the game high on confidence after recent successes.
The Eagles made a dreadful start to the new season, but a run of four wins and a draw in last five league games brought them back into the contest for the very top of the standings. They sit 5th after a comprehensive 0-3 victory over Stuttgart away at Mercedes-Benz-Arena last weekend. Sebastien Haller, Ante Rebic and Nicolai Muller were on target in the latest league success. The head coach Adi Hutter had a super talented group of players in the final third. Haller and Luka Jovic notches seven goals apiece so far in the season, while Croatian forward Rebic added four.
We can thus say Schalke’s defensive line will be on a massive test when these two sides take on each other on Sunday afternoon.
Eintracht Frankfurt vs Schalke Head-to-head
Die Königsblauen lead the head to head tie by two wins coming into their 91st meeting with Eintracht.
However, it’s Frankfurt who were much more successful in the history of H2H games at Commerzbank-Arena where they won 5 and lost 12 of 46 outings against Schalke.
The two teams met each other in the DFB Pokal semi-final last season when Frankfurt took a 0-1 victory at VELTINS-Arena.
It is interesting to mention that five of last six H2H affairs saw fewer than two goals scored.
Eintracht Frankfurt vs Schalke Prediction
We’d not be shocked to see the super low-scoring trend from H2H games continued here. This is mainly because of Schalke’s defensive-minded style under Domenico Tedesco this season. Die Koenigsblau kept six clean sheets in last nine matches in all competitions.
They’ve been in good touch lately winning three on the bounce across competitions. The latest of successes came on Tuesday night when Tedesco’s men dispatched Galatasaray 2-0 at home to make an enormous step towards the last 16 round of Champions League.
This is a genuine derby between two in-form sides and we see the draw as the most likable of three outcomes. Punters who’d like to try with a correct score longshot can chase the 1-1 draw at 6.00.
