Ingolstadt v Schalke - 10/1 at Sky Bet - Saturday 14:30
Ingolstadt went under a mini-revival to stage an effort to stay up in the Bundesliga after winning three games at the start of April but a run of five games without a win ended their campaign, a year after they finished 11th in the league. Schalke have had a disappointing season in the league, they'll more than likely finish in the top half but it's a big drop-off from finishing in the top 5 last season and were just three points off the top four and securing a Champions League spot.
In a season of disappointment for both sides, we're hoping there are plenty of goals at the Audi Sportpark. Over 3.5 Goals has featured in three of Ingolstadt's last five home games, with Both Teams To Score in Both Halves featuring in their games against Cologne and Werder Bremen. Schalke have kept just one clean sheet in their last seven away games in the Bundesliga, while BTTS in Both Halves featured in their 4-2 defeat against Borussia Monchengladbach. Ingolstadt have kept just one clean sheet at home this season, we're backing BTTS in Both Halves on Saturday.
The biggest game in the Bundesliga this weekend sees Hamburg take on Wolfsburg in what is essentially a relegation play-off. Hamburg lie 16th in the table, in the relegation play-off spot and need to beat Wolfsburg if they are to avoid playing 2. Bundesliga side Braunschweig in the relegation play-off. A point guarantees safety for Wolfsburg, much like Schalke, they've had a poor season; battling to avoid relegation after they finished in the top half and were contesting in the Champions League quarter-finals in 2015/16.
Four of Hamburg's last five home games has seen over 2.5 goals come in, while they've failed to score in just one of their last 12 home games in the Bundesliga. Hamburg have kept just two clean sheets in their last seven home games, we should be treated to an epic between two sides battling to avoid relegation. Five of Wolfsburg's last six away games has seen plenty of goals, over 2.5 goals featuring in all five while they've netted six goals in their last four away trips. In a game which will decide who will stay up, we're hoping for plenty of goals.
