Schalke vs Augsburg
Germany – Bundesliga
Date: Sunday, 24 May 2020
Kick-off at 12:30 UK/ 13:30 CET
Venue: Veltins Arena (Gelsenkirchen).
The Royal Blues have a great h2h record against this opponent over the years, and they have particularly made sure to dominate proceedings in h2h clashes at this venue. On top of that, Heiko Herrlich’s men have been a complete disaster on the road in the past several match-days. Likely, expect Schalke to make use of this chance and post three points on the board.

Schalke vs Augsburg Prediction
The Royal Blues were defeated 4-0 on the road the last match-day, by Borussia Dortmund. It was pretty unfortunate for the former to open their post-Covid season against one of the best teams in the league. And the in-form team made light work of their opponents by scoring four goals, one after the other. Sadly, the visitors could not even return one.
Meanwhile, Herrlich’s men were defeated 1-2 at home the last game week by Wolfsburg. The loss was pretty hard to take for the team as the winning goal by the guests had come in the 90+1st minute. And on top of that, one of the goals by the home team was disallowed by VAR.
As things stand this Sunday, the Royal Blues are the favorites to emerge victorious. They have a 100% unbeaten record at this venue in h2h clashes, and except for two draws, they have a 100% winning record as well. They have also scored three or more goals in all such encounters bar thrice, while having kept clean sheets in three of the prior five meetings here.
Going on, the Royal Blues have lost just twice this whole season at this ground – against Bayern, and against Leipzig – both of which could be considered to be the best in Germany. On the other hand, Herrlich’s men have lost all of their away fixtures since December 2019, and have not scored a single goal on the road in 2020.
Considering these findings, it’s assumed that the hosts Schalke are about to deliver the better performance.
