With three other teams’ level on points with Schalke as of now, the hosts simply cannot afford to drop any more points. Luckily for them, they are up against Eintracht Frankfurt this week, who have been branded as the worst away team in the cluster.
As such, Schalke should be able to secure all three points.

Schalke 04 vs Eintracht Frankfurt Prediction
Schalke admitted their first defeat in six games last week after a brace from Lucas Alario helped Bayer Leverkusen post a narrow 2-1 scoreline in their favor. The hosts were just not their usual self in that latter matchup and recorded no more than three shots on target as opposed to their foes who managed thrice that number.
Nevertheless, the home side are still dwelling the top four, and are just six points adrift of table-toppers Borussia Monchengladbach.
Eintracht Frankfurt, on the other hand, are on a miserable form at the moment. The visitors are without a win in their last four Bundesliga clashes, the most recent of which was a 1-1 draw alongside Hertha at home.
In all honesty, the guests have been faring even worse on the road. They have just one win from their last six outings and will be making the trip to Veltins Arena on the back of a three-match losing streak away from home.
In sharp contrast, Schalke have not been at the losing end in any of their previous six games here. Hence, Eintracht Frankfurt are the underdogs to come away with the win in this one.
Be that as it may, the hosts have salvaged no more than a point in three of their last four matchups at home. Taking into account that they failed to secure the bragging rights in their previous clash with this foe here as well, a Draw no Bet would have to be the safest punt this weekend.
Furthermore, Eintracht Frankfurt have shown a fighting spirit in their outings, despite tasting success just once so far. The visitors have found the back of the net seven times from their last six trips on the road.
It is also worth mentioning the guests have had their names on the scoresheet in three of their past four visits here.
Taking into account that Schalke have not kept a clean sheet in their last two fixtures at home either, count both teams to have their scoring boots on come Sunday.
