Karlsruher and Schalke renew their rivalry this season after a decade since the previous head-to-head game. The first game between them was a thrilling display of attacking football and we expect the same out of this second fixture.
Karlsruher vs Schalke: Top Free Betting Tips
Schalke returned to their better form and are now just two points below the leaders. Karlsruher are coming off from two consecutive wins and will be motivated to win again.
Total Goals – Over 2.5
Karlsruher and Schalke are two of the teams with the most games with over 2.5 goals and now they face each other for the second time this season. The previous game between them ended in a 1:2 win for Karlsruher. The hosts had 17 games with over 2.5 games out of 23 while Schalke had such results in 14 out of 23 games. It should be mentioned that back in the day, the teams never had games with over 2.5 goals but we expect something different in the match on Saturday. Both sides are in good form and score a lot of goals, so it will be surprising not to see both sides score.
Double Chance – Karlsruher or Draw
We expect Karlsruher to get at least a point from this fixture. Schalke are the obvious favorite to win it as they have generally been the stronger team this season. However, Karlsruher showed an impressive display in their last two fixtures, which they won. We also mentioned that Karlsruher won the previous head-to-head game with 1:2 and it is quite possible to see a similar result here. Their recent away matches have been quite disappointing – the team won just a single game out of its last seven outings. Their wins mostly came in home games, so we think that Karlsruher are the true favorites here.
Alternative Corners – Over 9 Corners
We expect a high-scoring game with a lot of action from both teams and a considerable number of corners. Karlsruher took an average of 4.96 corners per game this season while Schalke have been even more impressive – 5.35 corners per game. Moreover, Karlsruher took an average of 5.33 corners in their home games while Schalke took 5.55 corners in their 11 outings to date. The previous match between them had 10 corners but we expect to see even 11 or 12 this time.
