THE TEAM NEWS

FREIBURG

  • Freiburg knew it was likely they would need results elsewhere to go their way to keep them in the hunt for a spot in the Europa League but it was not to be as their loss to Bayern Munich confirmed they would be unable to finish high enough up the table.
  • Freiburg found themselves two goals down inside the opening 25 minutes but rallied to pull one back through Lucas Holer, although any hopes they had of getting back into the contest were extinguished when Bayern added a third soon after.
  • Freiburg need just a point to finish eighth in the standings and will be confident of doing so against struggling Schalke 04 and will hope to have Lukas Kubler available to them as he bids to return from a knee injury.

SCHALKE 04

  • Schalke 04 have ended the season in desperate form and they have now failed to win any of their last 15 Bundesliga matches after suffering a heavy loss at home to Wolfsburg last week with David Wagner’s position coming under increasing pressure.
  • Schalke were extremely disappointing once again as they shipped four goals before Rabbi Matondo grabbed a consolation effort but that did little to hide yet another poor performance.
  • Injuries have been a real problem for Schalke at the back end of the season and they will enter this final match of the campaign with a long list of unavailable players that now also features the suspended Jonjoe Kenny.

THE PREDICTION

Schalke 04 are fortunate they started the season in such good form having failed to win any of their last 15. They will be desperate to end that run before the season is out but face a tricky trip to Freiburg. The hosts will want to finish their good season on a high and despite missing out on a place in the top seven, they should be able to secure eighth with the three points in this game.
