Hertha Berlin and Schalke 04 will play against each other in a match of round 19 of the Bundesliga. The home team are in the seventh place in the standings with 27 points. Since the start of the season, Hertha have only one defeat on Olympiastadion – against RB Leipzig. After the good start of the season the form of the team dropped, and in the last ten games in the league, The Old Lady have just three wins.
Schalke 04 had a tough 2018, but in recent weeks the team are showing improvement and had two wins – against Wolfsburg and Stuttgart. At this moment, The Miners are on the 13th position in the standings, with six points less than their opponent on Friday. However, we think that is very likely Schalke to leave unbeaten the match on Olympiastadion. From October, The Miners have lost an away game only against a solid home team – Eintracht Frankfurt. Schalke showed that are competitive to the teams that are in similar form and even took one point in the away fixtures versus RB Leipzig and Hoffenheim.
We expect a tough match for the hosts, which have just one win in the Bundesliga at home since October. Schalke 04 are the only team in the league which never missed the victory when scoring the first goal, while Hertha have conceded the first goal in three of the last four fixtures on Olympiastadion.
