Schalke 04 vs Freiburg
Germany – Bundesliga
Date: Saturday, 31 March 2018
Kick-Off at 14:30 UK
Venue: VELTINS-Arena (Gelsenkirchen).
Schalke 04 have continued their dream run beating Wolfsburg 0-1 on the road before the international break. It was the fifth win on the bounce for Domenico Tedesco and his men who have thus clinched the second place in the Bundesliga standings. The team has not been part of the most elite football competition in a while, but the top four finish would grant them the place in the Champions League next year, and they look to be right on track in making it count at the end of the season.
Next up for Die Konigsblauen are Freiburg who have had another rollercoaster campaign full of ups and downs throughout the season. The team led by Christian Streich is currently on a poor run, having claimed only two points in last four Bundesliga ties. Such a negative form has seen them fall down to the 14th place in the league ladder, but the team is still on a fair distance from the drop zone (10 points away).
The most recent of the failures happened two weeks ago when Stuttgart grabbed the spoils from Schwarzwald Stadion beating Freiburg 1-2. The team has been particularly vulnerable on the road where they are winless in last seven league ties. Knowing that Schalke 04 have kept their net untouched in four straight league games, it’s really hard to predict anything but another pleasant afternoon for Die Konigsblauen fans here.
Schalke 04 vs Freiburg: Head-to-head
Schalke 04 lead the H2H tie by two wins coming into their 36th meeting with Freiburg.
Die Konigsblauen have managed to keep things tight at the back when they’ve first met Freiburg in this term of Bundesliga, 0-1 at Schwarzwald-Stadion.
It is interesting to note that none of the seven previous H2H games has seen offered or more goals.
Schalke 04 vs Freiburg: Prediction
The hosts have a wonderful chance to keep the hot run of form going by snatching another victory in front of the home crowd.
Since they’ve kept four clean sheets on the bounce, we will alternatively back them to maintain such trend and keep their net untouched here.
