Freiburg against Schalke 04. Would you have thought before the season that this game on the 5th round is a game between places 14 and 18? And even if, no one would have remotely thought that the miners are the ones holding the red lantern with zero points. But that is exactly how it is. Schalke 04 lost every single game and is rightly on the last place in the table.
Christian Streich's men is doing what they want every year. They want to secure the class and ideally not even have to fight for it. So far, they have four points from four games and are thus ranked 14th in the league. If you take a look at the teams behind them, however, it smells badly about a relegation battle. Sooner or later, Schalke, Stuttgart, Leverkusen and Hannover will probably make it to the top again.
A trained eye quickly sees that each opponent of the Schalke 04 is in the top 6 of the Bundesliga table. We would, therefore, tend not to regard the Tedesco Elf as bad as it currently is. Still, it is unacceptable that the runner-up could collect zero points from all these games.
Footballtips24.net is aware that the guests are far from being as bad as the current table position says. For example, the games against Hertha Berlin, Gladbach and Porto could have been won with a bit more luck. We don’t want to overstate Freiburg's 3:1 win against Wolfsburg on the other side. You should never look at the last game in sports betting. Rather, it is about a total performance of a team. In this case, this means that we assess Schalke a little better than commonly assumed and the sports club a little worse than it can 2:1 suggest.
