Schalke vs Kaiserslautern: Top Free Betting Tips

Schalke play their first home game of 2. Bundesliga against Kaiserslautern on Saturday, 5 August. The Miners enter Veltins Arena after a defeat against Hamburger and the Red Devils have tasted defeat against St Pauli before this game.

Total Goals Prediction: Over 2.5 Goals

Kaiserslautern has managed an average of just one goal per game in the previous five league outings. However, Schalke has been quite favourable in this regard and rattled the net ten times in the same number of competitive fixtures. The Miners will also be optimistic to create chances over the poor defence of FCK which conceded 12 goals in the aforestated period. Additionally, four of the last five meetings between these two sides at Veltins Arena have finished with Over 2.5 Goals. Therefore, a total of Over 2.5 Goals will be our first pick for this game.

Both Teams to Score Prediction: Yes

Four of the previous five H2Hs of these teams at Veltins Arena have ended with both teams on the scoring side. Schalke has been on the scoresheet in each of the previous five games in the first and second divisions. However, the Miners couldn’t keep a single clean sheet in that course. Kaiserslautern has also found the back of the net in all of the last five games in 2. Bundesliga, keeping zero clean sheets. Given these statistics, a BTTS outcome will be our second pick for this game.

Correct Score Prediction: 2-1 to Schalke

Out of three of Schalke’s victories in the last five H2Hs against Kaiserslautern at Veltins Arena, two of them came out with a 2-1 scoreline. The Royal Blues have also scored multiple goals in four of the last five league outings, scoring twice in three games. On the other hand, Kaiserslautern has netted the ball just once in two of the previous four league outings. The Red Devils conceded twice or more goals in each game during the aforestated period. Based on these circumstances, we believe to see a 2-1 lead for Schalke at the end of the ninety minutes in this game.
