Schalke vs Hamburg Bet Builder Betting Tip:
Schalke to win
Following their relegation from the top-flight, a new look Schalke squad will be aiming to kick-off life in Bundesliga 2 with a victory.
They’re facing a Hamburg side that lost four of their final seven away matches last season, conceding an average of almost two goals per match and Schalke should have enough class to edge this one.
Both teams to score
Despite a poor run at the end of last season, Hamburg were prolific scorers – getting on the scoresheet in 12 of their last 13 league matches.
They’ve also scored in all four of their pre-season matches so it would be no shock to see them bag at least one on Friday evening.
Over 2.5 goals
With us expecting both sides to score we’re also having a play on over 2.5 goals in the match.
Bundesliga 2 averaged 2.97 goals per match last season and there’s no reason not to expect that trend to continue starting on Friday.
Simon Terodde to score
Schalke have added the Bundesliga 2 specialist Terodde to their squad, signing him from none other than Hamburg.
Terodde has been one of the most prolific scorers in the league in recent seasons, scoring 142 goals in 253 matches, including 24 last season.
He’ll be looking to get off to a flyer for his new side and seems a great bet at odds against to get on the scoresheet.
