Hoffenheim News and Form

It has been a mixed season by Hoffenheim who were expected to be in better standing than they are. It is a W2 D2 L3 record that they have earned this season, leaving them in the bottom half of the table. They pulled off a shock away win at Bayern Munich just before the international break, snapping a four-match winless streak of form in which they managed to score only one goal.

Hoffenheim have tallied three goals in three home games, but all three of those came in their 3-2 victory over Werder Bremen. Their other two home games ended in 3-0 losses against Moenchengladbach and Freiburg, both of which are in the top six along with Schalke. Hoffenheim have been losing at the halftime break in all three of their home fixtures so far. 83% of their league goals netted this season have come in the second half of their games.

Schalke News and Form

Schalke are going well. Their only loss of this Bundesliga campaign happened against Bayern Munich. They have won four of their other six fixtures. They were on a four-match winning streak before they were held to a home draw by Cologne in their last fixture before the international break. Schalke have scored at least two goals in four of their last five Bundesliga outings. Home and away combined, Schalke averaged exactly two goals per game this season.

71% of all of their fixtures have gone over 2.5 goals which is a good trend for your betting in this one. They have, after all, failed to take a clean sheet in any of their last four games. Schalke have conceded more than two-thirds of their goals this season after the halftime break, opening the scoring in four of their seven played. There are currently only three teams with a better away record than Schalke, while there are only two sides who have conceded fewer goals.
