Schalke vs Hannover – Bundesliga: Schalke who has been making a great campaign on the Bundesliga, hosts Hannover this Sunday
The Bundesliga normally goes the way we all know. It is a league won by Bayern München and disputed by the other teams. In the last few years, only on a couple occasions was a team able of contesting the giants of Bayern München with strength.
But in the league of the others, Schalke has been making a great campaign. The team has been fighting toe to toe for 2nd place in the league with Leipzig, Dortmund and Leverkusen.
Right now, Schalke is in 3rd place with 30 points conquered, having lost their 2nd place due to the loss against Leipzig on the return of the Bundesliga last week.
Playing at home, the team has 5 wins, 3 draws and 1 loss, having scored 16 goals and conceded 10 so far.

Hannover is on the bottom half of the league table, but they are still alive on the fight for the European spots. The team is in 10th place with 26 points, but they are only 3 points away from the team that occupies the first Champions League’s spot.
Away from home, the team has 2 wins, 2 draws and 5 losses, having scored 9 goals and conceded 17. I believe that Hannover can struggle here, especially on the goal scoring department.
We’re talking about one of the worst defences of the competition as visitors, against one of the best attacks of the tournament.
Schalke vs Hannover – Betting Tip and Prediction:
At home, Schalke have lost only once, and it was against the leaders Bayern München.
At the moment, Schalke is on a more positive moment of form than their opponent and upon these circumstances, I believe that the home side will be able to score at least 2 goals.
