Schalke vs Augsburg Prediction and Betting Preview 24 May 2020

The Match Is Over. Score: 0-3
Despite being pretty underwhelming so far, Schalke 04 remain within top-six reckoning with only two points separating the Royal Blues from sixth-placed Wolfsburg. They have been very inconsistent, alternating between wins, draws and losses.
Match status: 2019/20 Bundesliga - Matchweek 27
Venue: Veltins Arena (Gelsenkirchen)
With the end of the season in sight, head coach David Wagner will be spurring his boys on to finish the campaign on a high – ideally within the highly-coveted top-six mix. For that, Schalke will be required to improve performance levels to remain hot on the tails of the likes of Freiburg and Wolfsburg.

Sitting 14th on the standings, the visiting contingent are a whopping nine points clear of the relegation places and will be looking to climb further up the ladder. Though not enjoying the best of campaigns, Fuggerstadter should be content in the manner in which their season have panned out.

A trip to the famed Veltins-Arena to take on German giants Schalke 04 does not exactly present the easiest of tasks for Augsburg. However, Heiko Herrlich’s charges will be looking to stage an upset to secure a positive result on Sunday against this stubborn foe.

Schalke 04 vs Augsburg Team News

Handed a difficult away game last time out at Borussia Dortmund, Schalke 04 were dealt a major blow with Der BVB firing four unanswered goals past Markus Schubert in goal. The Royal Blues never really got going as they looked clueless throughout the game. They were so poor that they could have easily been defeated by a larger winning margin.

Erling Haaland and Thorgan Hazard were so dominant that they left the Schalke defense chasing shadows.

Following the heavy loss, head coach David Wagner be looking to return to the drawing board to figure out everything that went wrong in that fixture, hoping to make amends. A win against this Augsburg side this weekend will do his side a world of good, in terms of confidence levels within the dressing room.

Augsburg, on the other hand, were not excused from defeat against a rampant Wolfsburg side on the last match-day. Playing in front of the home support, Herrlich’s men were condemned to a narrow 1-2 loss versus Die Wolfe.

With the game headed for a one-all draw, the visitors snatched the win very late in the game with a well-taken goal, shattering the hearts of the home supporters. Augsburg will take it as another bad day at the office with a return to winning ways in sight this weekend.

For this fixture, Schalke 04 have to be considered overwhelming favorites for the win. When it comes to head-to-head encounters, they hold a 100% winning record against this opposition – a very impressive stat. Also, the Veltins-Arena factor is likely to play a major role in determining what side comes out on top.

Being very impressive on home turf, the Royal Blues have lost just twice on this ground – both losses coming against title-chasing Bayern Munich and RB Leipzig. The club supporters can have no complaints about those losses given the stature of the opponents in question.

Meanwhile, Augburg have lost every one of their away fixtures since December 2019, which is a very rotten record by all standards. To make matters worse for the visitors, they have not registered a single goal on the road in 2020.

Injured or Suspended Players

Schalke 04: Ozan Kabak, Amine Hart and Jean-Clair Todibo.

Augsburg: Simon Asta.

Schalke vs Augsburg Predictions

Schalke 04 will still be hurting from their heavy 0-4 loss to Dortmund last time out and will be itching to set the record straight with a win this Sunday. Given the visitor’s terrible record on their excursions, they are very unlikely to salvage anything meaningful from this fixture. Expect Schalke 04 to see off Herrlich’s side very comfortably come Sunday afternoon.
