Schalke 04 Hoffenheim betting prediction


Betting suggestion:

The most likely scenario is that there will be a few goals. The home team is usually very offensive and they usually create many goal opportunities throughout the match. But although the club from Gelsenkirchen seems to be the favourite, Hoffenheim may have a word to say and has enough quality to score at least one goal.
