Die Konigsblauen have kicked it off with a 0-2 DFB Pokal win at Schweinfurt but then went on to suffer narrow – yet very disappointing – losses to Wolfsburg, Hertha Berlin, and Borussia M’gladbach. They’ve conceded a total of six goals along the way and Domenico Tedesco already sees himself in a hot seat, with his men letting in late goals on more than one occasion.

Porto, on the other hand, come seeking to capitalize on such troubles and snatch points at VELTINS-Arena too. However, they haven’t been at their best either and we’ve seen just one win in three outings since late August. Vitoria Guimaraes have snatched all three points at Estadio Do Dragao, Dragons returned to the winning ways with a 3-0 win over Moreirense but saw Chaves snatch a point in Taca da Liga most recently.

Schalke vs Porto: Head-to-head

The sides have last met in 2008, where Schalke made their way to Champions League Quarter-finals over the rivals.

We have seen two narrow clashes and two 1-0 home wins before the penalty shootout.

We now expect a similarly narrow contest, as Porto look to take revenge and snatch a win this time around.

Schalke vs Porto: Prediction

We have seen both sides struggle to keep it together at the back and we thus expect open spaces and an exciting game now too. However, we don’t see a winner and we’ll now stick our necks out for the sides to share the spoils with a Draw at 3.40.

We do expect goals and both sides have been regularly scoring and conceding lately, which has us believing a YES on Both teams to score comes as the best way to go about the fixture now – priced at 1.75. Both will be very motivated to finally end the unpredictable and underwhelming spells of results, but Porto could end up more satisfied on Tuesday evening.
