Ingolstadt vs Schalke 04 Match Prediction

By Marius Hrebenciuc

Two sides with nothing left to play for will square off in the Bundesliga on Saturday afternoon, as Ingolstadt welcome Schalke 04 at the Venue Audi-Sportpark. Ingolstadt fought back from one-goal down to secure a 1-1 away draw at Freiburg last time out thanks to a first-half equaliser from Dario Lezcano. Schalke 04 also drew 1-1 at home against Hamburger SV last weekend, although they had the lead until the 92nd minute thanks to an early goal from Guido Burgstaller. Below we have our betting tips, predictions, team news and match stats all in our SBAT preview.

Betting Predictions and Tips

Both teams have nothing left to play for, but I’m expecting Ingolstadt to win here as this is their last home game of the season. Furthermore, Ingolstadt managed to beat Schalke 3-0 in their most recent home meeting with the Royal Blues. I’m also backing goals as both sides have conceded a lot recently.

Ingolstadt Preview

Ingolstadt have managed some decent results recently, but unfortunately, it’s too late for them as they are relegated already. They are still winless in five league outings, but the last three of these have ended in draws. Ingolstadt were only able to collect 31 points this season thanks to a record of eight wins, seven draws and 18 defeats in their 33 league outings. Keeping the ball out of their own net has been Ingolstadt’s main reason for their struggle as they hold one of the worst defensive records in the division, conceding 56 goals in 33 rounds. Their recent home record has been decent as they have only lost once in their last five league outings, scoring at least two goals in four of these. In addition, Ingolstadt picked up a comfortable 3-0 win over Schalke 04 in their sole home meeting with the Royal Blues. Ingolstadt have only scored 35 goals throughout the season, but Almog Cohen has enjoyed a decent campaign despite the record, as he is leading the club’s goalscoring charts with seven goals under his belt.

Ingolstadt Team News

Moritz Hartmann is the only injury absentee for Ingolstadt ahead of this game.

Schalke 04 Preview

Meanwhile, https://www.sbat.com/football/team/3834-schalke-04Schalke 04 have struggled for consistency the entire season, and their recent form has been similar. Schalke have only won once in their last five league outings, and come into this tie on the back of a two-game winless streak. The Royal Blues find themselves only in 10th in the standings with 42 points under their belts after 33 rounds, already six points off the European places. Schalke had the easiest close to the season, but they weren’t able to beat Hamburg last weekend, so their European hopes ended. Schalke looked pretty well-organized at both ends of the field throughout the season, particularly at the back as the only conceded 39 goals in 33 rounds. Their away form has been the main reason for their struggle throughout this Bundesliga campaign, as they only collected 13 points from their 16 league trips. Their recent away form has seen them losing five of their last six competitive away games. The most worrying fact is that Schalke conceded at least two goals in eight of their last ten away games across all competitions. Guido Burgstaller is a player to watch here as he is the club’s top scorer with nine goals in his 17 league appearances.

Schalke 04 Team News

Breel Donald Embolo, Naldo, Max Meyer and Eric Choupo-Moting are all doubts, but Alessandro Schopf and Baba Rahman are both missing through injury. In addition, Sead Kolasinac is out through suspension.
