Schalke – Frankfurt is another exiting game from the 34th round of the Bundesliga with two teams from the top of the table. The game will start at 15:30 and it will take place on Veltins-Arena in Gelsenkirchen, Germany.
Schalke have secured their presence in the next seasons Uefa Champions League competition being on the second place with 60 points, 5 ahead Dortmund and the followers. They done a really good job this season because the fight for the European competitions is on fire. Last time out they also had a good win away from home against Augsburg with 2-1 and they are really confident at the moment. Surprisingly, their 6 games winning streak have been ended by a team that is really possible to relegate, Hamburger SV, but they managed to pull things on the right side with a win against their rivals from Dortmund. This one will be difficult for them as Frankfurt will want to join an European competition as well.
Schalke: Fahrmann – Kehrer – Naldo – Stambouli – Schopf – Goretzka – McKennie – Caligiuri – Harit – Burgstaller – Konoplyanka
Frankfurt still have some chances to the European competitions but it will be a hard way until they achieve it as well. They need to pass on opponents like Leipzig, Leverkusen, Hoffenheim and Dortmund and for that they will need to win and hope that the other teams will fail. All things considered they had a really good season but they failed to continue it until the end. Lately they were really bad and lost 4 of their last 7 games with 2 wins and 1 draw in between. With that kind of form you don’t get to play in Europe next season and I think they won’t succeed in the end.
Frankfurt: Hradecky – Salcedo – Abraham – Russ – Willems – Mascarell – Fernandes – Costa – Boateng – Wolf – Haller

Schalke – Frankfurt: Prediction
Frankfurt were the more successful team in recent encounters as they win 3 and draw 2 against Schalke in their last 5 outings. They also knocked out Schalke from the DFB-Pokal competition with an away 1-0 victory. Despite all these good results Schalke lead the direct games with only one win and their position at the moment in the Bundesliga suggest that they are a really big force. It will be a balanced game in my opinion with Frankfurt being desperate to score a goal really fast in the game. It’s a high-stake match for Frankfurt and they will do anything to win it.
