Freiburg vs Schalke

Anything other than a defeat will see Freiburg match a ten-game unbeaten streak at home set in 2012. The odds look good as they go up against Schalke, who they have beaten 13 times, more than any other Bundesliga outfit.

The hosts have also not lost in the past four league meetings here against the Royal Blues, who have managed just one measly goal in each of those four meetings.

Schalke will be without the influential Leon Goretzka, who has been sidelined with a muscular problem all week. Nabil Bentaleb should be fit to play despite missing training in midweek. Schalke are currently on a five-game unbeaten run.


Match Stats:

  • Freiburg 0-1 Schalke
  • Shots: 11-9
  • Possession: 52%-48%
  • Corner kicks: 6-1

Hoping to keep a nine-game unbeaten home run intact, the hosts made a strong opening to the second half. Played through by the lively Kapustka, Petersen ultimately failed to beat Schalke goalkeeper Ralf Fährmann. The miss would prove costly, with Caligiuri netting against his former side via a deflection off Christian Günter to help earn the Royal Blues a third away triumph of the campaign.
