Frankfurt to Win
After their dismal 1-1 draw with Mainz 05, the Eagles are desperate for the three points on offer. They slumped out of the top-four places and need to arrest their decline to ensure UEFA Champions League qualification. Frankfurt's task has been made easier with a trip to the Veltins Arena, home to the worst side in German top-flight football this season. Schalke 04 have been relegated to the second division and come into the fixture on the back of four successive defeats.
Total Goals: Over 2.5
Schalke have scored three goals in their last two outings, but have shipped in five at the back. In Frankfurt, the Royal Blues have an opposition, which likes to score goals but are let down by their defensive partners. Out of the top-six, the Eagles have the worst defensive record. With both sides averaging 3.2 and 3.5 goals per game respectively, the Over 2.5 should come to fruition.
Both Teams to Score: Yes
In their last seven outings at the Veltins Arena, Schalke have failed to trouble the scorers on five occasions. With Andre Silva scoring goals for fun in the 2020/21 Bundesliga campaign, Frankfurt have not had scoring issues. Barring their uncharacteristic 4-0 loss to Borussia Monchengladbach, Adi Hutter's men had scored in 12 successive away trips. There should be goals on either side of the pitch as Frankfurt look to secure the result, allowing the struggling Schalke opportunity to hit them on the counter.
Schalke vs Frankfurt: Team News and Match Preview
FC Schalke 04
The Royal Blues have no stake in the remaining Bundesliga fixtures after being relegated to the second division. They have scored one-seventh of their goals in their most recent two league outings, but they proved to be in vain as they were comfortably beaten by their rivals. Schalke can still have an impact on the points table with a result against Eintracht, which can deny them a top-four placement. However, they do not have the tools for such an action, especially with eight players out due to injuries.
The Eagles recent poor form is having its impact on their UEFA Champions League ambitions. Their 1-1 draw with Bo Svenson's Mainz saw them move out of the top-four with Borussia Dortmund replacing them. While BVB take on the Carnival Club in their next outing, Frankfurt can reclaim their place with a positive result against the woeful Schalke. Adi Hütter will have to ensure his defence stands true to the test and give breathing space for Andre Silva and co.
