Freiburg remains locked in a battle for a Champions League spot this season, and they could move into the top four with a victory this weekend. Schalke picked up their fifth win of the season last weekend, and will chasing a second consecutive success on Sunday.
It promises to be an entertaining race for the Champions League spots in the Bundesliga this season. Freiburg remains locked in the race, and they could move up to fourth with a victory this weekend. The German side has won just once in their previous four matches, but they have lost just once over the same period.
They showed their character last weekend, as they came back from 1-0 down against Werder Bremen to land a 2-1 victory. Roland Sallai netted the equalising goal after 66 minutes, before Lucas Holer netted the winner just five minutes later. Being back at home this weekend, they will be expected to kick on and show their class against a side struggling against relegation.
Schalke were winners in their previous fixture, and they will be looking for a second straight win this weekend to move out of the automatic relegation spots. That was an excellent response after losing each of their previous two matches before that success. But, defeat this weekend could see them end the round of fixtures at the bottom of the standings.
It was a healthy response from Schalke, as they landed a 5-2 home success against Hertha Berlin. Tim Skarke and Marius Butler scored in the opening 13 minutes. Further goals were added in the second half by Butler, Simon Terodde, and Marcin Kaminski.
Freiburg vs Schalke Head to Head
Freiburg has an excellent recent record in this fixture, as they have won each of their previous four matches against Schalke. Furthermore, they are yet to concede a goal against their rivals over that period. The reverse fixture between the sides this season saw Freiburg land a 2-0 success on the road.
Freiburg vs Schalke Prediction
Schalke’s recent win makes this a very interesting showdown on Sunday. However, it is hard to overlook Freiburg’s recent run of form, and they should have the quality to get over the line to three points. Therefore, we could see the home side landing a 3-1 win against Schalke.
