Stadium: VELTINS-Arena (Gelsenkirchen)
Hoffenheim's target for the 2022/23 season is a place in the European competition. At the same time, Schalke's main aim is to retain its place in the elite of German football. Considering these nuances, it should be no surprise that Hoffe is the favorite to win the title, even though they are playing an away game.Claim Your Welcome Bonus!
In the last three rounds, Schalke has suffered three defeats, and in the previous matchday, they lost 0:4 to Bayer. As a result, they are already in the relegation zone with six points. The situation is by no means critical, with Bayer sitting just two points behind in 15th place. We would not be surprised if Kramer, who took over the team in July 2022, is fired after a couple of defeats. At home, Schalke is +1=1-2, 8:12 goal difference; note that Schalke has scored an average of five goals per home game.
After a promising start, Hoffenheim slowed down. They took 13 points in seven games before the international break, but since then, they have taken two points from two games. On 2 October, they drew with Hertha Berlin, and five days later, they lost at home to Werder 1:2. Despite recent setbacks, the Blues and Whites are very close to the UEFA European competitions, yielding only two points to relegated Champions League side Dortmund. And in the case of an away win against Schalke, the Bianconeri will climb up into the top three teams in Germany for at least a day. Hoffe's out statistics are in the bottom half and only 10th in the division, +1=1-2, 5:5 goal difference.
Expert Betting Tips
It's not very profitable to bet on the visitors in the Bundesliga, especially considering the betting lineup. The visitors have won 32% of their matches, a typical statistic for a European championship. In addition, Hoffenheim has a negative away record, and in Gelsenkirchen, they have a historically unsuccessful performance. On the other hand, Schalke has a three-match losing streak, but they are reluctant to hand over their home games. They only lost minimally to FC Augsburg before beating Bayern Munich, drew with Gladbach, and won Bochum, losing without a chance only to the league leader Union. Once again, all the home games were productive, with the teams averaging five goals per game in Gelsenkirchen. We hope this trend will continue, and as for the outcome, we expect a draw from this pairing.
