THE PREDICTION

Schalke 04 come into this contest hugely boosted by the availability of star striker Simon Terodde. The 2. Bundesliga’s outright record goalscorer makes such a difference to Dimitrios Grammozis’ side and it would be no surprise to see him doing what he does best here as Holstein Kiel visit VELTINS-Arena. The away team are currently entrenched in midtable, whilst Schalke lie just five points from the top two going into this latest round of fixtures, so victory is essential for them. The hosts are expected to carve out plenty of goalscoring opportunities against an inferior squad in terms of individual ability and provided they are clinical in front of goal, which they are likely to be with the presence of Terodde, then three points should go the way of Schalke.
