Ingolstadt vs Schalke: Prediction
Schalke seems to be the favourite, but considering Ingolstadt good home form, the game could go either away.
I think the game will have fewer goals as the two teams involved are not high scoring teams, not mored than than 3 goals is expected (under 3.5).
I expected Both teams to score being that Ingolstadt have scored at least a goal in their last 6 Bundesliga games they have also concede at least a goal in 5 of their last 6 Bundesliga game.
