Schalke vs Eintracht Frankfurt Prediction & Betting tips
Huub Stevens takes on his Schalke 04 on Saturday against Eintracht Frankfurt, which has been unstoppable in recent weeks. Will Schalke manage to beat Frankfurt?
Huub Stevens booked his first victory with Schalke 04 last Sunday, in his second game since his return, on a visit to Hannover 96. Die Knappen actually played a weak game. It was thanks to some good saves by goalkeeper Alexander Nübel that one could return to Gelsenkirchen with three points in the bag. Through the three points, Schalke created some distance to the sixteenth place in the ranking.
On Wednesday, Schalke came into action in the battle for the DFB Pokal. The team had no luck in Hanover in the home game against Werder Bremen. Schalke again did not play well and the chances that came were not devoted to the Schalke players. Bremen struck twice effectively, ending the cup adventure of S04 (0-2). Stevens can make some changes, compared to the Wednesday game.
Eintracht Frankfurt is still in a fabulous form. Last weekend, the Bundesliga won for the fifth time in a row. Frankfurt was the winner in the home match against VfB Stuttgart. Including a Doppelpack by Filip Kostic, the South Germans won 3-0. It was the fifth official game in a row in which goalkeeper Kevin Trapp managed to keep the out.
Special weeks are coming for Frankfurt, as Die SGE will face Benfica in Lisbon this Thursday in the first match of the quarterfinals of the Europa League. Many more fans want to come to Portugal than there is room in the branch. Public support for Frankfurt is particularly high this season. The fans are also present in large numbers in the home games.
Sebastien Haller and Mijat Gacinovic have a question mark behind their name for Saturday. It remains to be seen whether they will get fit on time, and how much risk trainer Adi Hutter wants to take, with the game against Benfica ahead.
