In seven games in a row, Schalke have not lost to Hamburg at home, but whether to expect the Pitmen’s victory on July 23 – you will find the answer in the forecast. What to expect from the meeting?
Schalke were the Bundesliga’s biggest loser last season. The Pitmen started in the Bundesliga with a crushing 0-8 defeat from Bayern, and as a result, they spent the whole season on this note, having issued a relegation from the elite long before the finish of the championship. In the summer, all the key players left the team and, with the new line-up, the Pitmen were preparing for the start of the Second Bundesliga through friendly matches, in the last of which they beat Vitesse 3-2.
Hamburg also flopped last season. Once again, the “townspeople” expected to return to the Bundesliga, but again they were left with nothing. Failure at the end of the season, where Daniel Thione’s team could not win for five matches, turned into a fall to the fourth line, from where it was not possible to get out.
Hamburg prepared intensively for the start of the season already with a new coach in the person of Tim Walter , having played many friendly matches – among the latter two victories with the same 1-0 score over Basel and Silkeborg.
Schalke seriously renewed themselves in the summer – all the leaders and players who managed to find clubs in the elite left the team. Obviously, the Pitmen will lack teamwork – Hamburg is quite capable of taking advantage of this, which has a strong backbone and, on the whole, now surpasses the club from Gelsenkirchen in terms of selection of players.
We believe that guests have a better chance of winning. Forecast – Asian handicap (0) for Hamburg . In 1xbet mobile app download such an outcome is offered with a coefficient of 2.09
Schalke have a completely new line of defense and are not woven from the top players who will still lack teamwork. In such a situation, it will be almost impossible for the hosts to stay dry against Hamburg, but the townspeople are not famous for their reliable defense, so an exchange of goals is very likely.
Our second bet will be both goals . This bet can be placed for 1.64
