Schalke 04 – Union Berlin, Bundesliga Prediction
ANALYSIS AND PREDICTION FOR SCHALKE - UNION BERLIN
Schalke 04 are in good shape, but have difficulties even, when they win. That means most of their wins were very difficult. It was no exception against Bremen. They got 3 points, but with 2-1 and some missed chances for the opposition. The miners had huge problems last season, and fortunately for the fans, management took swift measures to prevent further collapses because no team is immune to anything and cannot rely on history.
Union Berlin deserve to be praised for what they have been doing so far. Certainly one of the teams with the most limited qualities, but they are 5 points above the danger zone and have 4 wins in the last 5 matches, and their players are actually at the level of the 2nd Bundesliga. The strength of this team is in the home matches. Every point away from home is a bonus and their only points are against Augsburg and Mainz, which are below them in the standings.
Expert view : We are almost certain that if Schalke wins today, winning again will be very difficult. Yet we do not think they will miss the 3 points. We mentioned that Union has great difficulties in its visits, mainly because of the poor quality of its players and in general against the strong teams will hardly manage to surprise. You can also try the option of the home team to win with 1 goal difference, which is over 3.50 odds, but our prediction for the match is Schalke to win at 1.64.
Schalke only have 1 home loss this season (by Bayern)
