Schalke 04 vs Eintracht Frankfurt [Recap, April 11th]

Schalke 04 look forward to a direct Champions League qualification after winning with 2-0 against Eintracht Frankfurt. The bet we placed with 888sport on the hosts to score in both halves didn’t pay off, as Schalke saw fit to score both goals after the 55th minute of regular time.

The first half saw no goals, but it was intense and with good vibes for next year’s Bundesliga, as Schalke’s youngsters were front and center in this match. Draxler and Huntelaar both had chances to score, but Kevin Trapp always ended up clearing the balls. Boateng didn’t do better either, as his header went off the post.
In the second half, Schalke looked even more dangerous, yet for some reason the goal just wouldn’t sit with Draxler. It took the 18 year old Maximilan Meyer to open the score on the 59th minute after Huntelaar failed to do so from the first try. Draxler could have made it 2-0 several minutes later, but his effort was deemed offside by the referee. Huntelaar missed a penalty on the 65th minute when he chose to shoot into the right side of Frankfurt’s post, guessed by Trapp.

Schalke could have lost the match, as after the goal the visitors were the dangerous side, and Schalke the team with the chances. Farfan put the winner debates to rest when he scored Schalke’s second goal in the 91 minute after coming into the match just four minutes earlier.

Result: -8 units, bet lost
