our main tip:
1st Half Under 1.5 goals

Fortuna Dusseldorf vs. FC Schalke 27.05.2020

Schalke are on a free fall at the moment. They not only can’t seem to win any games but even worse for them, they can’t buy any goals to save their lives. The extended break did not help them either. If anything, they have come out even worse off, losing the two games they have played after the break 4-0 and 3-0 to Dortmund and Augsburg respectively. They are understandably under pressure. Dusseldorf are not that much better. Their biggest challenge at the moment is the relegation battle they are in. The context makes this game crucial for both teams. It’s hard to call it one way or the other. We do expect a cagey affair nevertheless and we are going with First Half Under 1.5 goals as our prediction for this game
