To make things worse for them, the likes of Schalke 04 are about to travel to RheinEnergieStadion on Sunday afternoon. The Miners won’t come into the game in the highest of moods after falling to Eintracht Frankfurt in the DFB Pokal semifinal on Wednesday evening.

Die Konigsblauen can now focus entirely on completing the Bundesliga success. They are almost certain Champions League members being eight points above the fifth-placed RB Leipzig. Domenico Tedesco’s men saw off Borussia Dortmund in a huge Ruhr derby last weekend to go four points off bitter rivals at the second place in the league ladder.

Koln vs Schalke 04: Head-to-head

Schalke just eliminated Koln en route to the DFB Pokal semifinal, beating them 1-0 back in December last year at VELTINS-Arena.

The league clash, however, saw the Billy Goats pulling off a point from Gelsenkirchen, having kept the Miners to a 2-2 draw just weeks before the mentioned cup tie.

Both teams were on the scoreline in four of last five head to head games.

Koln vs Schalke 04: Prediction

Schalke may have been in good touch lately, but we must not forget that they fell 3-2 to Koln’s fellow strugglers Hamburger SV on their previous travel in Bundesliga. Given that Koln lost just one of last four league games in front of the home fans, and that they drew 2-2 with Schalke in their first meeting in this term of Bundesliga, we kind of have doubts about the away win at 2.00.

We do, however, expect an open game with Koln looking for an early breakthrough to try and stay in the elite for at least a week more. Knowing that four of last five H2H games saw the BTTS option “come in”, our main betting option would be both teams to score at the odds of 1.75.
