Schalke vs Union Berlin Match Preview
Schalke rediscovered their fine form in the final third lately and finally started capitalizing on it, as they made their way past Arminia Bielefeld (2-3) and bagged seven points in three Bundesliga games since. They host Union Berlin for their Matchday 13 clash and surely hope to keep it up on Friday evening.
Die Konigsblauen have been conceding numbers of goals along the way too (eight in those four games), but still managed to beat Augsburg (2-3) and Werder Bremen (1-2) on the road while holding Fortuna Dusseldorf to a thriller 3-3 clash at this ground along the way. This gives them a streak of three home draws to end but David Wagner’s men should be in a great mood to do so.
Union Berlin lack no high team spirits lately and they travel to Gelsenkirchen on the back of a five-match winning streak earned across competitions since late October. They beat Freiburg (1-3) in DFB Pokal and built on it with league wins over Hertha (1-0), Mainz (2-3), and Borussia Monchengladbach (2-0).
They kept scoring numbers of goals along the way and the friendly win over Holstein Kiel (3-0) in the process will be just as much of a confidence booster. Urs Fischer set up a rock-solid attacking line led by Sebastian Andersson but we don’t feel it will be enough to snatch the points this time around.
We will back Schalke to turn another exciting contest their way and we’ll go for a Home win and Over 2.5 Goals FT, which combines to an enticing 6/4 with Paddy Power and has already caught the eye of many value seekers in Germany.
