The Schalke vs Eintracht Frankfurt match will be played on Friday, January 27, at the Veltins Arena, Gelsenkirchen. Schalke is currently 10th on the table with 21 points, while Eintracht Frankfurt is currently 6th on the table with 29 points.


  • Schalke won only 1 out of their last 5 Bundesliga matches. They celebrated that victory last weekend, against Ingolstadt.
  • Eintracht Frankfurt is also in a bad form - they also recorded only 1 victory in the last 5 Bundesliga matches. In addition, they failed to score in 3 out of those 5 matches.


In their previous 10 meetings Schalke recorded 3 victories, Eintracht Frankfurt also recorded 3 victories, while 4 matches ended as a draw. In their last 4 games we saw under 2.5 goals and at least one team didn't score a single goal in each of those 4 games.

A bad series of results cost Schalke their place in the top half of the table. Their ambition for this season was a top 4 finish, but now it seems they will fail to reach even a top 6 spot and qualify for Europa League again. However, their bad form in Bundesliga didn't affect their performances in Europa League, where they reached a knockout stage and they will face PAOK in February. They have several injured and suspended players: Breel Embolo, Klaas Jan Huntelaar, Franco Di Santo and Baba Rahman are injured, while Nabil Bentaleb is suspended for the forthcoming match.

Eintracht Frankfurt had an amazing start of the season. They were inside the top 4 , but they dropped to the 6th place in recent weeks. Since they haven't got enough squad depth and quality, it is expected that their downfall will continue. However, if they record a victory against Schalke, they would distance themselves from one of the biggest favorites for top 6 finish. Marko Fabian and Szabolcs Huszti are injured for the forthcoming match.

Neither of the teams is in a great form currently. They also inefficient, so a goalless draw wouldn't be too surprising in the forthcoming match. However, Schalke is the favorite to win this.
