Braunschweig vs Schalke: top free betting tips
Schalke will be determined to continue their winning sequence when they take on Eintracht Braunschweig in the third round of 2. Bundesliga. The fixture will take place at Eintracht Stadion on Sunday, 20 August. The two teams enter this game after the DFB Pokal meeting against each other that featured the Miners on the winning side.
Match result prediction: Schalke to win
Eintracht Braunschweig has lost the previous three consecutive fixtures in 2. Bundesliga and DFB Pokal. On the other hand, Schalke has two victories and a draw in the same number of games. Adding more, Schalke has also outclassed the Lions by winning all of the previous five competitive games against the upcoming rivals. Therefore, we predict an easy victory for the Royal Blues to retain their winning form in 2. Bundesliga.
Total goals prediction: over 2.5 goals
All of the previous four H2Hs of these two sides have ended with Over 2.5 Goals. Eintracht Braunschweig has rattled the net just twice in three games since the start of 2. Bundesliga 2023/23. However, their defence would benefit Schalke as the Lions have conceded six goals in the aforestated period. On the other hand, the Royal Blues have found the back of the net nine times in the same duration. Given the current state of affairs, we can expect the teams to share a total of at least three goals in this encounter.
Correct score prediction: 3-1 to Schalke
Eintracht Braunschweig has scored in each of the previous two fixtures in 2. Bundesliga and DFB Pokal. The Lions have also been limited to only one goal in three of the previous five competitive H2Hs against the Miners. On the other end, Schalke showed their strength offensively and scored three goals per game in the last three consecutive fixtures. The Miners have also notched three goals in each of the previous three meetings with Braunschweig. Hence, we predict a 1-3 margin for Schalke at the end of the ninety minutes in this game.
