Our prediction for this Bundesliga match:
Schalke 04 and Koln go head to head at Veltins Arena in the Bundesliga round 17. Die Knappen did well to crush Hoffenheim 4-0 in their last home game in the Bundesliga, but they failed to spoil Eintracht’s party at Deutsche Bank Park at the weekend. Schalke 04 are eager to keep their survival hopes alive, and they will not have a better chance than this to record their second win of the season.
Even though the likes of Bentaleb, Boujellab, Ludewig, Paciencia, Schopf, and Skrzybski are out of contention with injuries, home win should be considered as die Knappen want this more than the Billy Goats. Koln failed to find the net in the previous three league fixtures, and given their display in a 5-0 loss to Freiburg, we believe that punters can find value in betting on the rock-bottom side. Both Andersson and Kainz are out of contention through injuries.
