Hertha Berlin to Win
After a 23-day gap, Hertha will be playing their fourth competitive fixture in ten days. They have negotiated this term positively, securing two draws and a win. Despite being on the road, they are favourites to take home the points on offer as they turn their attention to Schalke 04, the punching bags of Bundesliga sides this term. The Royal Blues have registered three successive defeats and look unlikely to pose a problem for their rivals on the night.
Total Goals: Under 2.5
Schalke 04 have only scored once in their last six home fixtures. Pal Dardai's men have secured points on offer but have only four goals against their names across the same period. With both sides struggling to find the back of the net, the trend looks unlikely to change in this midweek fixture.
Both Teams to Score: Yes
In the last six competitive fixtures at the Veltins-Arena, only one side has gotten on the scoreboard. Go further back and this statistic has come true eleven times in twelve counts. With Hertha being equally profligate on the road, the BTTS has only come to fruition six times in their twelve away trips. Moreover, the last three Bundesliga H2Hs have seen just one side troubling the scorers on the night.
Schalke vs Hertha Berlin: Team News and Match Preview
With Bayern Munich crowned champions, there is just one other certainty in the Bundesliga. Schalke 04 will certainly be relegated to the German second division. Dimitrios Grammozis is the fifth manager to take charge of the Royal Blues without much change in their fortunes. They have scored a combined 20 goals this season, the same amount the top four marksmen in the Bundesliga have achieved. Injuries have not helped their cause with eight players under the medics care.
Pal Dardai's men have crawled out of the relegation slots with stalemates galore. They are unbeaten in six competitive outings, four of them being draws. Against Schalke, they can improve the statistic to make it three wins and put further distance between themselves and the relegation places. Chief to their cause has been the combined output of Matheus Cunha, Jhon Cordoba and Krzysztof Piatek. However, the Old Lady are lacking numbers in the final stretch of the 2020/21 Bundesliga campaign with seven players out due to injuries.
