Asian Handicap
Pick: SCHALKE O4 AH +0.5
Odds: 1.892
Stake: 1

Match date: 13/12/2020
Schalkes horrible run goes on and on. After the 0:3 home loss against Bayer Leverkusen on the last match- day their dramatic series of winless games meanwhile has been grown to 26 games which means that they need only 5 more winless matches till they will reach the historical stats of a team named Tasmania Berlin that had a losing streak of 31 Bundesliga games more than 50 years ago. A record that definitely nobody wants and I feel that Schalke has fair chances to win one of its next few games as the next opponents will be teams from the bottom half of the table like the one from Augsburg this afternoon. Well at least there is a glimpse of hope when looking closer to the current development on the pitch as Schalkes running stats of the players have been significantly improving step by step since coach Manuel Baum has taken over for David Wagner after match-day 2. This shows that the players are following their new coach and seem to be mentally ready for this real hard fight against relegation. Todays game also means that coach Baum will come back to his old working place since he had been on the Augsburg bench from 2016 to 2019. The home team under coach Heiko Herrlich not in form winning only 1 out of the last 8 matches overall. Also their H2H against Schalke looks real bad (2-7-10) with no home win in the last 4 games. My expectations for this match are that Schalke should play out of a compact defense trying to force the home team to make the game which they actually do not like at all as Augsburg is the team with the lowest figures when it comes to ball possesion. Maybe Schalke could profit from the likes of their offensive midfielder Amine Harit who will be back at least on the bench after his ban by the club because of his open unmotivated behaviour. A player of his undoubted quality of course could make a difference in such a game. For Augsburg influential offensive midfielder Ruben Vargas is rated as doubtful. Would be a big blow in case he could not play. I will try a couragous bet on Schalke at least not to lose in this match.

WIN Score: 2:2 Profit: +0.89
