Union Berlin - Schalke 04 betting tips and odds

Kickoff starts at 18:30 on 13/02/2021 played @ Stadion An der Alten Försterei

The online bookies marked Union Berlin as the favourites, which makes a lot of sense. Still, we wouldn’t put Schalke 04 winning beyond them – not to mention that draws are a strong possibility in relatively balanced games.

The away team’s chances of winning this Saturday are dubious at best. They are the clear underdogs in a matchup with Union Berlin, and the fact that they’re the visiting team isn’t making things any easier.

Most bookmaker websites online successfully predicted the result of the previous round for Union Berlin – or something close to it. Pre-game analyses agreed that %TEAM_NAME, who were hosting, had a slight edge – and the match ended with a 1-goal lead and a 1:0 victory for them.

Schalke lost their previous home game against RB Leipzig with a considerably high 0:3 margin. Considering the overwhelming betting odds they were up against, though, the fact that they spent most of the match on the back foot is not too surprising.

Result bets aside, this match may be interesting for markets such as Both Teams to Score. Union Berlin put at least one goal on the scoreboard in at least 7 games in a row, and they’re statistically likely to continue the trend.

The visitors’ main concern will be cutting down the concession rate. They conceded more than 5 times in their latest 3 matches, and bucking the trend will be a great step in the right direction.

Though Union Berlin are in the upper half of the Bundesliga table, they’re 3 points behind European places. Current state of affairs is not exactly what we’d consider a success. However, their fans are hoping that the showdown against Schalke will be a step in the right direction.

Schalke 04 will need to make a hard turn to avoid disaster this season, and they’ll need to do it soon. Though there’s a good chunk of the season still ahead of them, the upcoming matchups are not exactly favourable.

At this point, the clash between these two teams is notorious for producing inconclusive results. They already have several tied matches on record in this season alone, which is ultimately worse for the home team who are considered favourites.

The odds being what they are, remember that they were priced with various injuries in mind. The hosts reported that Anthony Ujah, Max Kruse, Joel Pohjanpalo will have to sit this one out, while Schalke 04 will have to make do without Salif Sané, Timo Becker, Can Bozdogan, Steven Skrzybski, Gonçalo Paciência, Frederik Rønnow, Kilian Ludewig, Klaas-Jan Huntelaar.

Though a Home Win bet is the best offer in terms of value, the outcome is far from guaranteed. Though there’s a moderate risk involved, the 1.83 odds offered at Betsson are worth it.
