Schalke – Eintracht Frankfurt Preview

  • Following yet another defeat last time out, Schalke are the first team to concede 82+ league goals in a Bundesliga season since 1990/91. They subsequently possess the worst goal difference across Europe’s top-five leagues (-61), and have also conceded the most headed goals (20) in a Bundesliga season since at least 2004/05
  • An optimistic fan may point to Schalke picking up 69.23% of their overall points at home, and managing two clean sheets from the last four home league games (W1, D1, L2). However, that is still as many as the ‘Royal Blues’ claimed in their 20 prior league games here, underlining the sheer degree to which this campaign has been disastrous.
  • Eintracht Frankfurt travel after dropping out of the top four for the first time since January. Disappointingly, they’ve picked up just 15 of the last 30 available points (W4, D3, L3), Yet, although Frankfurt have conceded the opener in four of their last five league games, they’ve recovered more points from applicable games than all but Bayern (W4, D8, L3).
  • The visitors five-game away form is also concerning (W1, D1, L3). Key to that return is their inability to keep a clean sheet, and indeed only Cologne have kept fewer overall clean sheets than Frankfurt’s four this season. That includes Frankfurt conceding in each of their last nine away league games
  • Players to watch: One positive from Schalke’s awful season is the fact that Matthew Hoppe (five goals) has been nominated for Bundesliga’s ‘Rookie of the Season’. Meanwhile, Frankfurt’s André Silva continues to enjoy his finest scoring season to date (25 league goals) – he has bagged six goals in his last seven games, and opened the scoring in the reverse H2H.
  • Hot stat: Frankfurt have beaten Schalke 35 times in Bundesliga action. A win here will see them equal their record win-tally against any specific opponent in the competition (36 vs Bremen).
