Schalke vs Hoffenheim – Bundesliga: Big match on this round of the Bundesliga with Schalke hosting Hoffenheim at the Veltins-Arena
Hoffenheim isn’t making a campaign as solid as the one they made last season, where they were able to secure a spot in the Champions League. Still, the team is maintaining itself very close to the top of the league table.
Right now, the team occupies the 8th place with 31 points conquered. On their last match, they have beaten Mainz and have put an end to a negative streak of 5 winless matches.
The victory has left the team 3 points away from the Europa League spots and 5 points away from the Champions League spots.
Away from home, Hoffenheim has 2 victories, 4 draws and 5 losses, with a record of 16 goals scored and 22 goals conceded.

Schalke is also not on a good moment of form on this competition. With only 1 win on their last 5 matches, they have left the Champions League spots and now sit only in 6th place with 34 points conquered.
Despite both teams being at the top of the Bundesliga table, with only 3 points separating them. And both of them are fighting for spots in the Champions or Europa League, despite not being in great moments of form, only having 1 win on their last 5 matches each.
Schalke is on the edge of the European qualification zone and Hoffenheim has returned to the fight with the win over Mainz. I will ignore the negative streak and take into account what I’ve seen from these two teams in the league.
Schalke vs Hoffenheim – Betting Tip and Prediction:
And in that sense, I think I’ve seen more potential on Schalke than on Hoffenheim.
I’ll protect myself from the draw here because of that momentary instability but I believe that the best team, even more playing at home, will win here.
