With their sights firmly set on securing European football for next season, Hoffenheim will travel to relegation contenders Schalke on Saturday afternoon.
Starting with the hosts, continuing on what is becoming a very worrying end to the season, Schalke still find themselves at the heart of a relegation battle. In their 29 Bundesliga matches this year, the Blues have won just seven, drawn six and lost the remaining 16, scoring 30 and conceding 47 in return. Holding a five-point buffer from slipping back into the drop zone, no side outside of the bottom three holds a worse attacking record than Schalke. As for their recent run of results, now winning just one of their last 11 Bundesliga outings, Saturday’s hosts have also lost their last three matches on home soil.
As for the visitors, really enjoying a stellar run of form at the back end of the Bundesliga campaign, Hoffenheim will be looking to secure a European finish. In their 29 matches this year, they have recorded 12 wins, 11 draws and six defeats, scoring 60 and conceding 39 in return. Currently sat sixth in the table with a points tally of 47, Hoffenheim also hold the third best-attacking record in Germany’s top-tier. As for their recent run of results, the visitors are unbeaten in their last five outings, winning their last three consecutive appearances. It is also worth noting that Hoffenheim are unbeaten in their last 12 Bundesliga matches on the road.
