Schalke 04 previously faced Bremer SV on Sunday and the final score was a colossal 0:5 victory away from home. Presently the club is enjoying a streak of four victories in succession. Being the host did not help significantly during Schalke 04’s recent 10 meetings as the visitors ended up winning seven of the these. During its last ten clashes, they did not register even a single draw. All out of the last five encounters featured over 2.5 goals, with all but one witnessing goals at both ends of the field. Schalke 04’s defensive efforts proved enough to limit the opposition to no goals in one of these games and they scored on their own at least once in all of those. The average number of goals scored by the teams involved across their last five outings is 4.2.
