Schalke vs Freiburg preview, betting tips and prediction: How will Schalke get on at home?
March 30, 2018
Schalke are in terrific form going into this weekend’s clash with Freiburg. The Royal Blues have won their last five matches in the Bundesliga, their best run in six years. They’re the only team to boast such a winning streak in the division and it’s been done in a humble fashion.
Hard-fought victories have become the hallmark of this Schalke side in recent weeks. Their last three matches have been decided by one goal. That was the margin of their last victory over Freiburg, a Daniel Caligiuri goal deciding the outcome in the first half of the campaign.
If they manage to also win this match 1-0 then they will match the Bundesliga record for consecutive 1-0 victories, a record which has stood since Kaiserslautern managed four in a row back in 1998. Freiburg, battling the drop this season, are one of the lowest-scoring teams in the top flight. They’ve managed just 26 goals in 27 games this season.
