Schalke 04 vs Hoffenheim Prediction, Preview, Lineups & Betting Tips
Schalke 04 need to get back on track after two consecutive Bundesliga defeats and only two wins (only one of them in the Bundesliga) in 2018 so far. They played really well and put on a brave performance in a 1-2 defeat to Bayern in Munich last weekend, though, and want to build on that display in front of their own fans now.
“The Royal Blues” host to Hoffenheim who travel to Gelsenkirchen after a 4-2 win over Mainz 05 last week, but guests from Sinsheim will face a tougher challenge without some players injured, including Serge Gnabry who is questionable.
We place our stake on the home side: Schalke 04 to defeat Hoffenheim.
