Eintracht Frankfurt and Schalke 04 go head-to-head at the Commerzbank-Arena in a potentially low-scoring Bundesliga (BL) affair. Indeed, eight of their last 11 competitive H2Hs have featured under 2.5 goals.
Seven of Frankfurt’s eight competitive fixtures since German football’s restart have produced over 2.5 goals, with six featuring both teams score, too. Frankfurt’s home action usually bursts into life after the halftime break, as 68% (21) of their total 31 BL home goals scored so far came in the second half of play. However, ‘Die Adler’ are still seeking their first top-flight home triumph in the post-pandemic period (D1, L2), having conceded two or more goals in each of their four previous league home matches. But, Adi Hutter’s men now face a perfect opportunity to find their footing at the Commerzbank-Arena, as they tackle a side they’ve not lost to in eight of their previous top-flight H2Hs held at this venue (W4, D4).
Meanwhile, Schalke’s misery since the turn of 2020 has continued after the coronavirus crisis, as they come into this encounter on a run of 13 BL games without a victory (D6, L7). During that 13-game sequence, ‘Die Königsblauen’ drew a blank in eight matches, scoring precisely once per game in the other five. Not only Schalke’s last BL away triumph dates back to November 2019 (D4, L5), but they’ve also failed to find the net in five of seven league road trips since the calendar flipped. If David Wagner’s side find the net here, they are likely to do it after halftime – 65% (11) of Schalke 17 away goals scored came in the second half of play.
