These are our Hamburg vs Schalke 04 predictions and tips:

Schalke 04 Draw No Bet

It may interest you to know that Hamburg played in the Bundesliga relegation/promotion playoffs last season, but lost both legs to Stuttgart. On the other hand, Schalke 04 were relegated from the top tier of German football, after they finished second-last on the Bundesliga table.

That said, we have not been too impressed with Hamburg’s form ahead of their new season; as they suffered four losses in their last six matches, winning just once in that stretch. By comparison, Schalke 04 have faced relatively better than today’s opponents; as they lost just once in their last five matches. On that note, we are leaning towards the visitors with the draw no bet option.

Goals at Both Ends

It’s worth mentioning that Hamburg and Schalke 04 have met a fair few times, and both teams usually get on the scoresheet when they do. In fact, six of the last eight skirmishes between these teams featured goals at both ends. In the same vein, both teams scored in all of Hamburg’s last five matches; and for this reason, our second Hamburg vs Schalke 04 prediction is that both teams will find the back of the net.

A High-scoring Affair

Lastly, let’s take a look at the over/under goals market. We’ve already established that both teams tend to score when these teams go up against each other. It may also interest you to know that three of the last four encounters between these sides featured at least four goals. Furthermore, Hamburg and Schalke 04 have both been involved in a lot of high-scoring matches lately. All of Hamburg’s last six matches went north of the 2.5 goal marker, 11 of Schalke 04’s last 12 games too. For this reason, we should expect the goals to flow in this game.
