Freiburg vs Schalke
Germany – Bundesliga
Date: Saturday, 27 June 2020
Kick-off at 14:30 UK/ 15:30 CET
With an active 17-game winless run at the moment, the Miners might be the worst team in the whole of Europe’s top five leagues, let alone the Bundesliga. It’s a wonder that they avoided getting the boot. For that, they have to thank their form in the first phase of the season.
In the meantime, it was heartbreaking to see Christian Streich’s men miss out on a European ticket after fighting very hard for it. Still, they displayed phenomenal vigor in going after this objective, and fans have great hopes for this team come the 2020-21 season.
By all means, Streich’s men have the upper hand here. The Miners just cannot wait for the season to come to an end, and conduct some serious introspection about how their campaign went awry. If they keep on with this form next time around as well, they could bid goodbye to the German top flight.

Freiburg vs Schalke: Prediction
Streich’s men lost 3-1 on the road the last match-day, against the Bavarians. Despite winning the title the preceding game week, the eight-time champions showed no sense of slowing down, and on the contrary was on a hurry to secure the win.
Meanwhile, the Miners lost 1-4 at home against the Wolves. It should have been a win to nil for the guests, but after scoring four straight goals, they took the foot off the gas pedal a bit, and that’s when the Miners slotted in their consolation goal.
As things stand, Streich’s men have the upper hand. The Miners are on a 17-game winless run, and had even lost nine of their former twelve fixtures. On the road, it’s been seven months since their last win, and in the process, they had also lost four of their preceding five trips.
Going on, they had also scored a total of three goals from their prior eighty away fixtures, and had conceded two or more goals in four of their preceding five such games.
Meanwhile, Streich’s men are on a two-match winning run at home, and they are also unbeaten against this opponent in the past three years. Taking into account these observations, it’s estimated that Freiburg are on a winning route this weekend.
