Our prediction for this Bundesliga match:
Schalke 04 and Hoffenheim face each other at Veltins Arena in what is expected to be one of the most exciting games of Saturday’s program. Die Knappen have yet to record a win in the 2020/21 Bundesliga campaign, but the game against Hoffenheim could be the turning point for the rock-bottom side. The likes of Ludewig, Boujellab, Paciencia, and Sane are all likely to miss the game with injuries for the hosts.
Hoffenheim, on the other hand, experienced all sorts of problems in a 3-1 loss to Freiburg. Since both Rudy and Akpoguma suffered injuries at the weekend, we are tempted to put our money on Schalke 04, who are desperate to give fans something to cheer about. Even though Austria defender Stefan Posch returns from suspension for the visitors, home win should be considered this time out.
