Our match prediction:
After a precarious this season Schalke 04 is showing a more consistent form in the last week of the Bundesliga. This consistent form lead Die Königsblauen to a 4th place on the current Bundesliga table with 5 points difference with #1 Bayern Munich. Eintracht Frankfurt on the other hand is placed 8th on the table and is performing very similar like last year. Schalke 04 striker Klaas Jan Huntelaar scored only 2 goals so far which is disappointing for a striker of his class.
