Hertha BSC vs FC Schalke 04 – Betting Tips for the game
Hertha Berlin were able to overcome bottom club Nuremberg with a lot of ease after a 3-1 victory upon their return to the Bundesliga campaign. This victory helped erase memories of the team managing three winless games towards the end of 2018.
A much better second-half performance resulted in Schalke picking up a 2-1 victory over Wolfsburg. The result makes it back-to-back league victories for Domenico Tedesco’s men.
The reverse meeting between the two teams witnessed Hertha Berlin picking up a 2-0 victory over Schalke, who were reduced to 10 men. Schalke had picked up a similar win when they last hosted Hertha Berlin at the Olympiastadion Berlin and it was the home team’s turn to be reduced to 10 men. Our betting tips and predictions expect a win for Hertha Berlin.
Hertha BSC vs FC Schalke 04 – Match odds
Schalke make the trip to the Olympiastadion Berlin after having won the recent trip to this ground. Domenico Tedesco’s men were far from impressive in the win over Wolfsburg while it was not the case with Hertha Berlin, who had a strong performance against Nuremberg. Pal Dardai has also seen his team lose only once at home this season. Schalke are in a very strong position coming into the game, but Hertha Berlin are even better. Our preview would pick a win for the home team.
Hertha Berlin vs Schalke draw odds: 3.25
Schalke win odds: 2.62
Hertha BSC vs FC Schalke 04 – Correct Score odds
Schalke have been offensively decent over the last few weeks but the form of players like Ibisevic and Duda make Hertha Berlin a much better team going forward. It is also reflected on the statistical front with Hertha Berlin scoring more goals than Schalke, who do have a better defensive record. After having just been dominated over by Wolfsburg, Schalke will be keen on a strong start. Our correct score prediction would go with a 2-0 win for Hertha Berlin.
Hertha BSC vs FC Schalke 04 – Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
The 2-0 score has been extremely popular when Hertha Berlin and Schalke have met each other with five out of the last six matches producing this score. It also points out to a low scoring match whenever these two teams met each other. Hertha Berlin are quite strong at home and our total goals prediction would back under 2.5 goals.
Hertha BSC vs FC Schalke 04 – First Goalscorer odds
Ondrej Duda is now the highest scoring midfielder in the Bundesliga this season after taking his tally to 9 goals following the brace against Nuremberg. He came up with a brace in the meeting against Schalke earlier in the campaign. His recent form makes our first goalscorer prediction back the 24-year-old.
