Our prediction for this Bundesliga match:
Saturday’s football game at VELTINS-Arena pits together Schalke 04 and Hoffenheim, the two teams who are eyeing a place in European competitions. Schalke 04 do not seem to be on top of their game ahead of the visit of Hoffenheim as they suffered back-to-back losses to the likes of Leipzig (0-5) and Koln (0-3) in the previous two league fixtures.
Die Knappen are eager to give fans something to cheer about, and they will not have a better chance than this to get back on course in the Bundesliga as Hoffenheim are low on spirits ahead of the trip to Gelsenkirchen. Hoffenheim experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 6-0 loss to Bayern Munchen, with the team extending their winless run in the league to five games. Hoffenheim defeated Schalke 04 2-0 in the first half of the season, meaning that the hosts are hungry for revenge.
