Schalke vs Freiburg betting tips 16/02/2019

Actually, the coaches were always the weakest link in the chain. If a club slipped into a crisis somewhere, the coach was the one you put on the street. Meanwhile, the wind has turned a bit, because the sports director, sports director or whatever the responsible persons for the composition of the squad are called, is now more and more in focus. In Nuremberg and Stuttgart, the colleagues of Christian Heidel had to go this week and also for the Schalke sports chief, it could be uncomfortable. That he is relieved at the end of the season, is basically out of the question. In case of further failures, however, a premature release is still possible during the season.

That could also apply to Domenico Tedesco. A defeat on Saturday against Freiburg and a probable defeat by Manchester City in the Champions League could mean that the coach would have to take his hat off. Schalke is lucky that the crisis has affected some competitors even more intense and the descent is not quite as big. But if we are concerned that the miners wanted to return to the premier class, then the season target has already been missed significantly. Nevertheless, in the match between Schalke and Freiburg, the odds show that the bookmakers expect a home win. For the players on Schalke a victory would be eminently important. Schalke and Freiburg are neighbors in the classification. The Royal Blues are only 14th with 22 points. Freiburg have one more point and are one place ahead of Schalke. Nevertheless, the tendency in the duel between Schalke and Freiburg is a tip towards home win. The Breisgauer are to be treated with caution and therefore we would not rule out, especially since Schalke is struck, that we experience a surprise on Saturday. The kick-off for the 22nd matchday in the Bundesliga between Schalke 04 and SC Freiburg in the Veltins-Arena takes place on 16.02.2019 at 15:30.

Schalke vs Freiburg Betting TipsSchalke – Statistics & Current Form

Already the beginning of the season was a disaster in Gelsenkirchen. Nothing has changed to this day. The miners are not in the middle of the relegation battle, but the comfort zone in front of the ungrateful squares is not too big. If we look at the statistics, it becomes clear that after 21 matchdays, since the introduction of the three-point rule, Schalke has never had as few counters on it as it does today. Also in the Bundesliga there were only one point in three games, although the program with Hertha and Bayern away as well as Gladbach at home already had it in them. Nevertheless, Schalke 04 is far from where you thought yourself before the season. Perhaps the high staff turnover is a reason why it does not work out so well. Permanent players are being exchanged. Domenico Tedesco makes dubious decisions here and there. So the coach is now clearly in the criticism. Nevertheless, one must say that the tendency before the kick-off between Schalke and Freiburg to a prediction on a trio of miners.

Last weekend the Schalke had to compete in Bayern Munich. That there would not be much to harvest there was relatively clear in the current constitution. In the end, the team of Domenico Tedesco showed what they were allowed to do.

“The SC Freiburg has a team with a great deal of mentality and good characters, which tear up and press with much intensity.” – Domenico Tedesco

Ahmed Kutucu was able to compensate for the early deficit after an own goal by Jeffrey Bruma. In the end it was called 1: 3 and overall the Schalke were well served. Now home win against Freiburg, so as not to be flushed again really deep into the vulnerable zone. Domenico Tedesco knows that his team will be hard-pressed and that the Breisgau will try to pressure their players early to make mistakes. A problem is also the personnel side of the Schalke, who continue to have three failures in the offensive with Alessandro Schöpf, Breel Embolo and Steven Skrzybski. Keeper Alexander Nübel will be missing as well as Daniel Caligiuri. Both have to serve a suspension on Saturday.

Expected formation of Schalke:
Ferryman – Sane, Nastasic, Bruma – Mascarell, Bentaleb – McKennie, Oczipka, Serdar, Kutucu – Uth –

Trainer: Tedesco

Schalke vs Freiburg Betting TipsFreiburg – Statistics & Current Form

A good shape looks different. The SC Freiburg is apparently still in hibernation or at least the back team of the Breisgauer. In the second half of the sports club has only four points from four games brought. After all, the Freiburg have scored but eight goals. That alone makes two on average. If we take the numerous goals, then we should use in the duel between Schalke and Freiburg, the odds on over-gates, if possible. Especially Florian Niederlechner will be in the spotlight, because it was he who scored the last four Freiburg goals against Schalke 04. In addition, Schalke is a kind of favorite opponent for the Breisgauer. After all, Freiburg scored in eleven of the last 18 appearances on Schalke. The sports club has a better record in any other away trip to book. One big problem right now is that the defense is very vulnerable. Twelve goals conceded in four games are just too much to win.

That’s how it was last weekend, when VfL Wolfsburg was a guest in the Black Forest. If you score three goals at home, that should be enough to win, you might think. However, the wolves took the lead three times.

“We have to defend well. We got too many goals. Schalke of course has a few injury problems. That’s not something a team puts away so easily. ” – Christian Streich

The moral of the team of Christian Streich is intact and so you could equalize by the results of Vincenzo Grifo, Nils Petersen and Luca Waldschmidt three times. With too many mistakes on the defensive, the sports club is losing a better table position. No wonder that Christian Streich wants to focus on a compact defensive Schalke. Secretly, he also pays off chances to hurt the opponent with small pinpricks and take at least one point home. But the military hospital is also lavishly stocked by the Breisgauers. Manuel Gulde, Robin Koch, Nicolas Höfler, Florian Kath, Brandon Borrello, Tim Kleindienst and Robert Sallai will not be available for Christian Streich on Saturday.

Expected formation of Freiburg:
Schwolow – Kübler, Lienhart, Heintz, Günter – Haberer, Frantz, Höler, Grifo – Niederlechner, Petersen –

Trainer: Streich
