Our prediction for this Bundesliga match:
Hamburg SV can be considered as one of the surprises in this seasons Bundesliga. With 3 victories, 1 draw and 10 points the team from Hamburg is performing above expectations. Last season Hamburg SV was able to sustain in the Bundesliga and this season it seems like they are motivated to stay again. Schalke 04 on the other hand is in form and is building up a nice streak which is resulting in a top 3 position on the table. With the help of the home supporters HSV should be able to get away with a point.
