Preview:
Schalke 04 and Hoffenheim meet at Veltins‑Arena, in a match for the 17th round of the Bundesliga. At this stadium, the head‑to‑head history favours the home team, since they have a record of 4 wins and 2 losses in the last 6 matches. Sure enough, the last time these teams met at this stadium, on 07‑03‑2015, in a match for the Bundesliga, Schalke 04 won by (3‑1). The goals of the match were scored by C. Fuchs (12' ) and M. Meyer (41' and 53' ), for Schalke 04, and by K. Volland (73' ), for Hoffenheim. In this match the home advantage may play an important role, as both teams present significant differences between home and away performances.

Analysis of Schalke 04

The home team is currently in the 8th position of the league, with 24 points won, after 7 wins, 3 draws and 6 losses. In the penultimate match, they won in a home match against Hannover 96, by (3‑1). In the last match, they lost in an away match against Augsburg, by (2‑1). This is a team that, oddly enough, has had better results in away matches than at home, since in the last 30 matches they register 8 wins, 3 draws and 4 losses in away matches; against 7 wins, 5 draws and 3 losses at their stadium. In the last 8 home league matches Schalke 04 has a record of 4 wins, 2 draws and 2 losses, so they have won 14 points out of 24 possible. In their home league matches the most frequent result at half‑time was the 0‑1 (3 out of 8 matches). They haven't been very strong defensively, since they have suffered goals in 9 of the last 10 matches, but their offense has scored frequently, since they have scored goals in 9 of the last 10 matches for this competition. In their home matches there is a tendency for goals, since 8 of the last 8 matches for this competition have ended with Over 1,5 goals. They have conceded the first goal in 8 of their 16 matches for this competition, and have never been able to turn the score around. In the last 13 home matches for all competitions there is 1 period that stands out: they have scored 7 of their 19 goals between minutes (76'‑90').

Schalke comes to this match after a 2-1 away loss against Augsburg. One of the greatest qualities of this team is their ability to counterattack, since they have fast players with great technical skill, particularly in the wings. They are also very aggressive throughout the match and put their opponents under a lot of pressure.

Confirmed Lineup: R. Fährmann, B. Höwedes, S. Riether, J. Matip, S. Kolašinac, M. Meyer, J. Geis, L. Goretzka, K. Huntelaar, F. Di Santo, E. Choupo-Moting.
Coach: A. Breitenreiter.

Analysis of Hoffenheim

The away team is currently in the 17th position of the league, with 13 points won, after 2 wins, 7 draws and 7 losses. In the penultimate match, they tied in an away match against Ingolstadt, by (1‑1). In the last match, they won in a home match against Hannover 96, by (1‑0). This is a team that usually gets better results in away matches than at home, since in the last 30 matches they register 6 wins, 4 draws and 5 losses in away matches, with 60 goals scored and 18 conceded; against 4 wins, 6 draws and 5 losses at their stadium, with 18 goals scored and 20 conceded. In the last 8 away league matches Hoffenheim has a record of 1 win, 3 draws and 4 losses, so they have won 6 points out of 24 possible.

In this competition, they haven’t won any of the last 8 matches. In their away league matches there are a few frequent results at half‑time: 0‑0 (3 out of 8 matches) and 1‑1 (3 out of 8 matches). Defensive consistency hasn’t been their best feature, as they have conceded goals in 7 of the last 10 matches for this competition. In 16 matches for this competition, they have conceded the first goal 6 times and have never been able to turn the score around. In the last 10 away matches for all competitions there are 2 periods that stand out: they have scored 3 of their 8 goals between minutes (0'‑15'); they have conceded 5 of their 14 goals between minutes (61'‑75').

The away team comes to this match after a 1-0 home win over Hannover. As their opponents in this match, they are also strong in counterattacks, particularly through the left wing, making good use of the offensive quality of left winger Jin-Su Kim. They usually play with close defensive and midfield lines, not allowing spaces between lines, trying to get the ball and surprise the opponent in fast transitions.

Confirmed Lineup: O. Baumann, F. Schär, P. Kadeřábek, N. Süle, Jin-Su Kim, N. Amiri, T. Elyounoussi, J. Schmid, S. Rudy, T. Strobl, E. Vargas.
Coach: J. Nagelsmann.

Betting suggestion:

The most likely scenario is that there will be a few goals. The home team is usually very offensive and they usually create many goal opportunities throughout the match. But although the club from Gelsenkirchen seems to be the favourite, Hoffenheim may have a word to say and has enough quality to score at least one goal.
