Schalke vs Paderborn: Top Free Betting Tips
It appears that the season might be over for Paderborn in terms of their chances for promotion. The team was one of the best at the start of the season but have recently been in terrible form.
Both Teams To Score – Yes
Schalke and Paderborn have been having a bunch of goals in their games overall throughout the entire season. In recent weeks, Schalke had over 2.5s in 4/5 games while Paderborn in 5/7. At the same time, the both teams to score option is even better for these two sides as Schalke had both score in 9/10 recent games and Paderborn in 5/7. Both sides score a lot of goals but concede in most of their games, so in this crucial fixture, we expect to see scores from both. The previous match between them ended in a 0:1 win for Schalke but we all know that Paderborn are much better on the road than at home. Even with their bad form, we expect them to score at least one goal here.
Match Result – Schalke
Schalke have always been the more dominant side in this particular head-to-head. In fact, the teams have played 7 games against each other overall and Paderborn have not won a single one yet. We do not expect this to happen now either, although they were quite impressive on the road in earlier stages. Schalke are in fairly good form and apart from the recent surprising loss to Dusseldorf, have not lost many games. We expect them to be motivated now that they are three points behind the other top teams.
Total Corners – Under 11
Despite their offensive efforts, Schalke are not a team that takes plenty of corners and they are even better in not allowing such in their games. Over the past 6 games, five ended with less than 11 corners and we expect the same from this fixture too. Eleven corners are a high number that is rarer than frequent and with Paderborn's bad form, we do not expect many from them at all.
