Hoffenheim draw no bet @ 13/8 with Betfair

In what has been the tightest race for European places in any of the top five leagues, Schalke are falling behind. Second in the table when the winter break broke up the season, Schalke are now sixth and four points behind current first runners-up RB Leipzig. Not a huge gap by any means but the biggest that the gap has been for some time.

If Schalke don’t arrest their poor run of form then they could fall behind their rivals as they disappear into the distance, neck and neck, the lot of them.

Schalke come into this weekend’s meeting with Hoffenheim having won just one of their last six Bundesliga fixtures. The most recent defeat came at the hands of Bayern Munich, the league leaders who have inflicted a serious amount of hurt to the Schalke cause. Agreeing a deal to sign their star player Leon Goretzka undoubtedly complicated matters for The Miners. He played the full game in that defeat at the Allianz Arena but hasn’t been at his best since that transfer news was announced. The fans have made it known that they no longer care for him.

Hoffenheim were five games without a win before dismantling Mainz 4-2 last weekend. Adam Szalai and Andrej Kramaric both bagged braces in the victory. Hoffenheim won the reverse fixture against Schalke earlier in the season and are decent odds to pick up a result here.
