Hoffenheim to Win

Die Kraichgauer are unbeaten in their last four fixtures, while Schalke's continue to give downtrodden performances in the German top-flight football. With the season entering its final stretch, the hosts are points away from securing a top-half finish. They have shown tenacity in keeping attackers at bay and will be looking to further pile misery on the relegation-bound Miners.

Total Goals: Under 2.5

Chief to Hoffenheim's success this season has been their ability to withstand pressure, draw their rivals out, and then hit them on the counter. On Saturday they will come up against Schalke 04 who possess neither of these abilities. With little ability to create on their own, the match promises to be a long-drawn-out affair. The fact that three of their last four fixtures seeing less than three goals adds credence to this claim.

Anytime Goalscorer: Andrej Kramaric

TSG have scored four goals in their last two outings, three of those came through the boots of Andrej Kramaric. The hosts have created a style that suits the Croatian forward's strengths and it looks unlikely that the hosts will break their playing mould at this junction of the season. Expect Hoffenheim to create for Kramaric and him to deliver the goods.

Hoffenheim vs Schalke: Team News and Match Preview

TSG Hoffenheim

Sebastian Hoeness was supposed to bridge the gap Julien Nagelsmann left. Looking back at the season so far, Hoffenheim will not be pleased with the former player's end product. Die Kraichgauer finished 6th in Bundesliga last season and are fighting to finish in the top half this campaign. The departure of key players has hurt them this campaign and Hoeness has the tough task of rebuilding the squad. While Kramaric has become the talisman of the squad, Pavel Kaderabek and Ihlas Bebou have strengthened their repertoire at the Rhein-Neckar-Arena.

Hoffenheim vs Schalke

After finishing 12th in the Bundesliga, the Royal Blues were expected to improve on their placement. Nothing has gone according to plan and none of the five managers have provided them the reprieve the fans wanted. With four matches until the end of the campaign, Schalke are the only confirmed side to go down to 2. Bundesliga. This has been fashioned by their remarkable inability to score, hitting the back of the net a paltry 17 times in 30 outings, five of which have been provided by 20-year-old Matthew Hoppe.
