Schalke are given a price of 2.10 and it seems rather generous for a team that has lost all of their league matches in a disappointing manner. Freiburg will be confident after just registering the first win of the campaign. Now, the club will be looking to pick up a first home win since the last day of the 2017-18 campaign when they beat Augsburg. Schalke may have completed a double over Freiburg last season but they have suffered losses at the Schwarzwald-Stadion in the past. Our preview would pick a win for Freiburg.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
Freiburg will be highly motivated going forward and this is likely to result in a nervous time for Schalke, who have never conceded more than 2.5 goals against Freiburg in the last six meetings. Even this time around, Freiburg may not be able to overcome this record with pressure from the home supporters is likely to tell on the team. Our total goals prediction would back over 2.5 goals.
