Arminia Bielefeld to Win
At any other time in their history, Schalke would have been favourites to take the three points on offer. But not in this fixture. The Royal Blues have been exceptionally abysmal and out of their depth. They are on the road and up against a Bielefeld team that have the possibility of avoiding relegation. Moreover, the Blues are on a three-match unbeaten run and should take the points on offer to move clear of play-off spot.
Total Goals: Under 2.5
The Over 2.5 has been observed in all but two of Schalke's fourteen away trips. However, they will be travelling to the home of Arminia Bielefeld, the second most notorious venus for goal averse fixtures. The last four matches at the Bielefelder Alm have seen less than 2.5 goals and that trend will likely continue as these two sides come face to face.
Both Teams to Score: No
Schalke has seen goals galore in their fixtures, not because of their attacking flair. The Royal Blues cannot stop conceding. Couple this with their abject performances in attack and one can understand the reasons behind their impending relegation. On the other hand, battling a similar fate, Arminia Bielefeld neither concede nor score goals. There has been a clean sheet in nine of their recent ten home fixtures, suggesting a similar fate on Tuesday.
Bielefeld vs Schalke: Team News and Match Preview
The Blues topsy turvy season continues into the final stretch. Arminia Bielefeld are unbeaten in their last three outings, which has seen them jump out of the relegation playoff position. Frank Kramer's job is far from over as he ensures German top-flight safety for last season's 2. Bundesliga champions. However, their task remains tough without reliable goalscoring options. Ritsu Doan remains their best hope from the middle of the park, which has seen him accumulate four goals and two assists.
FC Schalke 04
The Royal Blues with a rich pedigree in German football cannot wait for this campaign to end. They are slated for relegation and are counting the fixtures that will bring an end to their misery. Schalke's every win has proven to be a false dawn. They went on a 13-match winless run after their last victory and are on course to repeat the same process after the win over Augsburg. With no one to pin their hopes on, and even Klaas-Jan Huntelaar struggling to make the team, little is expected from them.
