- Schalke are winless from their 14 Bundesliga assignments this season
- Schalke have shipped 39 goals in 14 league affairs this term
- Hoffenheim have lost only one of their last three games in normal time
Basement boys Schalke set for more misery
Schalke’s defeat to Hertha Berlin on Saturday suggested their 2021 is not going to be much better than their 2020 endeavours and the Bundesliga basement boys could be set for more misery when they host Hoffenheim.
Schalke have lost ten and drawn four of their 14 league assignments this campaign and are six points adrift of the relegation playoff position and seven off safety.
David Wagner, Manuel Baum and Huub Stevens have all occupied the managerial hotseat and Christian Gross is the latest to be tasked with keeping them afloat but it could be a tall order.
Hoffenheim have not enjoyed the greatest of seasons but have beaten Augsburg, Gent and Borussia Monchengladbach since the start of December and should have enough in the final third with Ihlas Bebou and Andrej Kramaric to sink the Royal Blues. We predict a 2-1 win for Hoffenheim.
