Schalke 04 – Hertha Berlin Match Prediction | 25-08-2019 09:30

Max Meyer is an attacking midfielder, who is capable of playing as a striker as well and he was born on 18 September, 1995 in Oberhausen. Meyer has 17 caps for Germany U21 and he represented the national team at the 2016 Rio Olympics. He made his Bundesliga debut in the 2013/2014 season against Wolfsburg, coming from the bench to replace Jefferson Farfan 20 minutes before the final whistle.

Then again, Schalke will also be buoyed by the recent defensive efforts of their opponents. Like Fridays hosts, Schalke have started to give plenty away on their travels. The visitors are now without a clean sheet in each of their last four on the road, while theyve given up expected goals figures of 1.47, 1.09, 1.92 and 1.04 during that time. Such numbers bode well for the hosts, who really are no slouches in the final third at home.

Schalke 04 Stats

An inability to prevent their opponents from creating scoring opportunities is why Hertha have won just one of their last five on home soil. Such numbers are positive. At times theyve looked good, like when beating Bayern and Gladbach, though theyve also looked very poor, like when they were embarrassed by Leipzig. In terms of how theyve fared at home, its been a mixed bag for Drdais men. Fridays hosts have rarely struggled to get involved in the final third when playing in front of a home crowd; theyve failed to score just once at Olympiastadion, are averaging 1.75 goals for and are averaging 1.72 expected goals for. What isnt positive is an average of 1.56 expected goals against.

However, Schalkes strong home form, scoring consistency a run of at least one goal in all of their last 28 Bundesliga matches (one of their best ever streaks) and immaculate head-to-head record against Hertha Schalke have won each of the last 10 home outings against them, with 80% of these seeing under 2.5 total goals scored makes its tough to see anything other than the home win. Our prediction: 2-0 Schalke. Schalke ruthlessly grind out results under coach Tedesco and at the 17/18 campaigns conclusion they had won nine of their last twelve league outings (W9 D2 L1). A strong back line has always been the priority Schalke scored no more than two goals in any of those matches. Hertha were very inconsistent away from home towards the end of last season, losing to an out-of-form Hannover one week but beating an in-form Eintracht Frankfurt the next, so you cant always know what to expect from them.

Schalke Team News

The recent defensive efforts of both make it easy to fancy goals, while the numbers posted by Hertha at home makes the current price on offer look a tad generous. With Schalke starting to look dodgy at the back on their travels and as theres been an average of 3.28 expected goals at Olympiastadion this season, supporting a high-scoring game is the way to go on Friday night. At the prices, Over 2.5 Goals & Both Teams to Score is tough to shy away from.

However, we feel it will be no easy task and we feel Schalke will be very motivated to build on the high of recent, as we also back a Yes on Both teams to score at 17/20 with William Hill. We have seen goals on both ends in all of both sides respective last five outings, which does add to such a belief.

Hertha Berlin vs Schalke Stats

Pal Dardai has also brought in some reinforcements over the summer in the form of defender Lukas Klunter relegated with Cologne at the end of last season and loanees Javairo Dilrosunand Marko Grujic from Manchester City and Liverpool respectively, but Hertha were lacking attacking magic in their 1-0 win at home to promoted Fortuna Dusseldorf last weekend. A relatively uneventful 17/18 campaign for Hertha Berlin saw them finish ten points clear of the relegation play-off spot and as many adrift of the top six, and a relatively uneventful 18/19 opener makes us think we could be seeing more of the same from them this season. Hertha are two for two in wins for the season though, having progressed to the second round of the DFB Pokal via a 2-1 win over Eintracht Braunschweig, so should not be taken too lightly.

New signing Sebastian Rudy,a Bundesliga veteran of over 200 appearances and league winner withBayern Munichlast season, is expected to make his debut. Coach Domenico Tedesco hasonly made the necessary changes over the summer to a side that rose to finish eight points clear as runners up in the Bundesliga last term. Schalke opened their 18/19 campaign with a win in the first round of the DFB Pokal, knocking out fourth tier side Schweinfurt in a comfortable 2-0 win, but followed that up with a bumpy performance against Wolfsburg last weekend.Matija Nastasics second-half sending off could arguably have been responsible for the eventual 2-1 defeat it certainly didnt help Schalkes cause and his absence could see McKennie drop into the back three a role he has performed in the past at club level with goalscorer Nabil Bentalebbeing brought in to the centre.
