The Eagles, on the other side, returned to the winning ways win some fashion seven days ago when they stormed past relegation stragglers Hamburger SV 3-0 at Commerzbank-Arena. Nonetheless, they still need a result here in order to book the seventh-place finish and a place in the Europa League next year. Niko Kovac and his men will get another chance to do so in case of dropping down to eighth next weekend when they are to play Bayern Munich in the DFB Pokal final.

Schalke vs Eintracht Frankfurt: Head-to-head

  • Overall, Schalke 04 lead the head to head tie by a single win, but Frankfurt were the more successful outfit in the most recent history of clashes with the Miners.
  • The Eagles won three and drew one of last four ties with Schalke 04.
  • Eintracht kept their net untouched in four of last five H2H encounters against Schalke 04.
  • Both teams were on target in just one of last seven head to head affairs.

Schalke vs Eintracht Frankfurt: Prediction

Schalke have no0thing to play for here having already booked the second-place finish, but Domenico Tedesco is still expected to field his strongest lineup for a decent farewell to the home crowd in the last game of the season. Even though the hosts will be without an imperative here, we can’t but see the value in backing them to grab the spoils knowing that the Eagles were disastrous in the most recent set of away fixtures in the league.

Frankfurt lost six on the bounce in Bundesliga away from Commerzbank-Arena conceding four goals in each of last two losses to Bayer Leverkusen and Bayern Munich. This could open up the space for Schalke to end the negative trend in H2H matches with the Eagles and we’ll shoot for the hosts to net two or more goals at 2.10 as the standout bet.

Schalke vs Eintracht Frankfurt: Bet Tips

  • Schalke 04 Over 1.5 Team Goals @ 2.10
  • Schalke 04 to win @ 2.50.
