Schalke vs Frankfurt – DFB Pokal: On the only match that will be played this
Tuesday in Germany, counting towards the semi-finals of the DFB Pokal.
The local side Schalke 04 and the visiting side Eintracht Frankfurt face off in the city of Gelsenkirchen, at the Veltins Arena, on the 2nd meeting between these two sides, with their previous encounter finishing with a 2-2 draw.
The home side comes into this match making one of their best campaigns of the decade, if not even the best, being in 2nd place of the Bundesliga, right behind the already champions Bayern München.
While also reaching an advanced stage of the competition in terms of the DFB Pokal, having the opportunity to reach the final in case they are able to beat Eintracht here. The team has already knocked out BFC Dynamo, Wehen, Koln and Wolfsburg.
As for the visiting side, they are also making one of the best campaigns of recent years, although dropping more recently in terms of performance and, with that, also dropping in terms of the Bundesliga, since they are already outside of the European qualification zone.
In any way, they come into this match after a good campaign in the DFB Pokal, eliminating Erndtebruck, Schweinfurt, Heidenheim and Mainz along the way.
Schalke vs Frankfurt – Betting Tip and Prediction:
With a Schalke that has been one of the most consistent teams on the defensive point of view in terms of the German competition (conceding goals in only 1 of their last 5 matches) and against an Eintracht that isn’t exactly in good form, having 3 losses and 1 draw on their last 5 matches.
I believe that, allied to the fact that this is a knockout match, we’ll have in this match an encounter without many goals and a very close affair.
