Schalke 04 – Hamburger SV [Recap]

There is no inopportune moment for a good result, but Schalke‘s 4-1 win over Hamburg on Sunday afternoon was just miraculously well-timed. With their victory, I also won the 6 units I bet at Betfair.

In spite of the categorical result, it would be unfair to neglect the fact that Hamburger SV were tremendous opponents, since they went into the game as genuine Champions League contenders; but unfortunately for them, the dramatic result from Sunday made their boss reconsider: “It’s hard to talk about Europe after such a game” said Thorsten Fink.

Hamburg SV had actually taken the lead early on, when Marcell Jansen placed his header into the corner. In the match against Schalke, Fink chose to establish a special strategy, which unfortunately for them didn’t prove to be the best option. For example, Dennis Aogo was tasked with dropping deep in front of the centre-backs, but what Fink missed to take into account was that he might not be able to keep the ball long enough to make such a risky set-up work. As a proof, the ball bounced back quickly, so Julian Draxler, Raffael and Bastos had 30 meters of free space to run into.

Regarding Schalke, their latest result with Hambuger makes a welcome change, after a couple of weeks of mysteriously questionable and frustrating performances.

Result: +3.96 units, bet won
