Today's football prediction for Hoffenheim vs Schalke (0:1/2): 3-1.
Recently, Hoffenheim has started to see some sunlight after a long period of darkness. Specifically, they have won their last 2 matches, while in the previous 14 matches, they could only gain 2 points. Thanks to their valuable 6 points recently, coach Matarazzo's team has temporarily escaped the relegation zone. However, the danger of relegation for the first time in their Bundesliga participation history (they were promoted for the first time in the 2008/09 season and have stayed until now) still looms for Hoffenheim as they are only 3 points away from the danger zone.
In this round, they will enter another final after defeating Hertha Berlin in the previous round. Their upcoming opponent is Schalke, who is 4 points behind them and has lost all 3 previous matches between the two sides (all with a difference of more than 1 goal), including 2 matches this season (in the German Cup).
Many football fans eagerly await the champions league predictions from top sports analysts and experts to gain insight into the likely outcomes of the highly anticipated matches.
However, in terms of recent form, Schalke has been better than Hoffenheim. Their 0-3 loss to Leverkusen last week was their first defeat after an 8-match unbeaten streak in the league (2 wins). What they have shown proves that coach Thomas Reis and his players are making efforts to avoid the relegation.
But that factor makes the 1/2 handicap that Hoffenheim holds in this match quite attractive. Such a handicap is also quite high for a match that is like a "reverse final". Remember the last away match, Schalke was only given a 1/4 handicap against Augsburg, a team now above Hoffenheim. It seems that the home team will win this match.
