Eintracht Frankfurt vs. Schalke Betting Preview – Bundesliga, June 17

Eintracht Frankfurt vs. Schalke Betting Preview for June 17th, 2020

After a shaky few games immediately after the restart, Eintracht Frankfurt has steadied the ship and now still has an outside chance of qualifying for Europe this season.

Schalke is the opponent on Wednesday evening, and the Gelsenkirchen club is going through a very disappointing period at the moment.

Schalke to Win+310

Schalke is showing just about the worst form in the Bundesliga at the moment as the club limps on until the end of the season. So it is unsurprising that BetOnline makes the visitors a long shot to gain anything at all from its trip to Frankfurt this week to take on Eintracht.

Match Preview

The 4-1 scoreline at the Olympiastadion probably flattered Frankfurt, but Adi Hutter’s side definitely deserved the win even with the red card for Hertha’s Dedryck Boyata giving the Eagles a big advantage. The Belgian defender was sent off just before half time with the home side 1-0 up. But Frankfurt made the extra man pay in the second period.

That win allayed any remote fears of relegation this season, and now Eintracht Frankfurt will be able to play out the remaining three games of the campaign safe in the knowledge that it will be back in the top flight next season. It was getting a bit close at one point, so there will be a sense of relief at the Commerzbank Arena.

Schalke is also staying up, but it is no thanks to the form the club has shown since the turn of the year. There has been just one win in that time and 13 games without a victory now. It is lucky that David Wagner navigated his side to such a successful start to the season because this is relegation form at the moment.

It is not even that Schalke has been unlucky during that time. The team looks disjointed and has been played off the park at times. If Eintracht Frankfurt carries on where it left off against Hertha at the weekend, then this could be another big goal haul for the hosts.

Eintracht Frankfurt vs. Schalke Prediction and Pick

  • Eintracht Frankfurt to Win
    -140

In the same way that it is very difficult to back anyone playing Bayern Munich right now, it is also hard to go with Schalke in any game, whoever it is playing. The end of the season just can’t come quickly enough, and it is saying something that two back-to-back draws have been regarded as an improvement. Frankfurt should be able to win this one quite easily.
