Hamburg vs Schalke Tips, Preview and Predictions
April 05, 2018
The form team in the Bundesliga, Schalke are beginning to put some distance between themselves and the other Champions League hunters of Germany’s top flight.
The Royal Blues have the opportunity to set a new club record for consecutive wins this weekend when they travel to Hamburg on the back of a six-game streak of victories. Their most recent triumph was a 2-0 win over Freiburg last weekend. It moved them four points ahead of third-placed Borussia Dortmund and a step closer to a return to Europe’s top table.
While Hamburg – languishing at the bottom of the league – are fighting for their survival, Schalke are on a golden run of form. They’ve kept five consecutive clean sheets and a sixth here would equal a club record. We back them to achieve that aim with minimum fuss.
