- Arminia Bielefeld have won eight points from a possible 18 in recent weeks.
- Schalke have won one of their last 14 matches and relegation looks certain.
- All four of the last four league fixtures between these sides have failed to beat the 2.5 goal line.
Schalke’s fate sealed?
Schalke travel to Bielefeld knowing that anything other than a win here will seal their relegation to 2. Bundesliga. Bielefeld are still in big trouble themselves and need a win to keep their head above water.
Bielefeld are currently one place, and just one points, above the relegation play off place currently occupied by Hertha Berlin. They have now gone three games unbeaten but have drawn two of those matches, remaining unable to pull clear of the bottom three. They have played a game more than the teams around them so picking up points becomes more vital than usual.
Schalke remain bottom of the league, the position they’ve sat in for the vast majority of the season. They are currently 14 points from safety with just five games left to play and if they do anything other than win in this game they will be relegated to 2. Bundesliga. Motivation will be high but confidence is low with just two wins all season and just four points picked up away from home this season.
Its hard to see Schalke taking anything from this game with their form never picking up this season and we can’t see anything other than a win for Bielefeld in this encounter, which would seal the fate of the visitors. We’re forecasting a 1-0 win for the home side in a low quality affair.
