Freiburg vs Schalke
Germany – Bundesliga
Date: Tuesday, 25 September 2018
Kick-Off at 19:30 UK
Venue: Schwartzwald-Stadion (Freiburg).
In the 5th round of the German Bundesliga, Freiburg are going to host Schalke on Tuesday evening.
The hosts managed to survive last season by winning in the final round and staying three points ahead of the relegation zone. After picking up just three points from the first three rounds in the current campaign, Christian Streich’s side managed to book their first victory away to Wolfsburg, which was pretty surprising one.
Freiburg are doing a good job in front of the oppositions’ goal, however their bad defending costed them many points. They managed to snatch just one point when playing in front of their fans after super-exciting 3-3 draw against Stuttgart.
The current runners-up are the biggest underachievers so far in the competition. They are hammered to the bottom of the table as they’ve lost all four matches so far.
Breel Embolo and the lads produced just two goals so far while their defence conceded eight times. Schalke need to improve urgently if they want to get away from the danger zone first, and then start climbing to the top half of the table.
The visitors managed to snatch their first point in the Champions League after a 1-1 draw against Porto at home.
Freiburg vs Schalke: Head-to-head
- Schalke have celebrated two straight victories against their rivals and also managed to keep the clean sheet.
- Their clashes have been pretty tight ones lately and the crowd was able to enjoy more than two goals in very rare occasions.
Freiburg vs Schalke: Prediction
This one is very tricky to predict and it is going to be a pretty close match. Schalke are entering a bit lighter schedule and they should use this opportunity tom improve on the table. The visitors should be able to steal the victory in this one.
We are going to follow the tradition of their clashes which says that we shouldn’t be able to see more than two goals. The visitors should tighten up their defence and hold this match under 2.5 margin.
