Déjà-vu at Schalke. In cup games in particular, it is often strange that the teams that have just met in the league meet in the DFB Cup just a few days later. Schalke and Hertha shared the points in the Bundesliga last Friday and are already facing each other again in the round of 16 of the cup competition on Tuesday.

The fans of Schalke may hope that it will be a better game than four days ago. Most Gelsenkircheners and Berliners will not care. There are no beauty awards in football, and certainly not in the cup. The only thing that counts there is to advance one lap and move one step closer to the title.
As a Bundesliga club, you always have the chance to win the DFB Cup, although the top teams around Bayern Munich, RB Leipzig or Dortmund are favored. Schalke and Hertha also have their options, which Eintracht Frankfurt has recently been able to demonstrate. In addition, the trophy is still the fastest and easiest way to compete internationally.
Bookmakers see Schalke 04 as the favorite in the new edition of the last Bundesliga matchday. That should be mainly due to home law. In the league it has been indicated that both teams will meet on Tuesday at eye level. Nevertheless, the betting providers between Schalke and Hertha give a prediction of a home win.
Very defensive capitals are expected at Schalke. Spectators in the stadium and in front of the TV sets should not expect a football festival. Schalke coach David Wagner announced in the lawn dispute with the Berliners that the ground will be watered and that a brisk combination game will allow.
This fact should not have a major impact on the game. Therefore, a bet on a few goals between Schalke and Hertha could be interesting. In the end, the only thing that matters is moving into the quarterfinals, if necessary via a penalty shootout. The kick-off for the round of 16 in the DFB Cup between Schalke 04 and Hertha BSC in the Veltins-Arena will take place on February 4th, 2020.
Schalke – Statistics & current form
After Schalke had to shake for a long time last season to stay in the league, a comeback on the international stage is hinting in the coming season. At the moment it looks like the miners could move into the Europa League. In the Bundesliga table, FC Schalke is sixth after 20 match days.
At the moment, there is a lot of evidence that the royal blue are losing touch with the places for the premier class. The start to 2020 was mixed. A win, a draw and a defeat were the results of the first three matches in the Bundesliga.
It is interesting that both teams could not meet in any of these three matches. That speaks on Tuesday for taking a closer look at the odds of “both teams to score/ NO“ between Schalke and Hertha. Of course, this only applies to the first 90 minutes, because in a cup game in which a decision has to be made, goals will have to be scored at some point.
Last Friday the Schalke fans had to wait in vain for their team to score. In Berlin the squires were the slightly better team, but the Schalke offensive kept biting their teeth on the compact Herthans. David Wagner will have to come up with a different match plan for Tuesday.
A big topic after the 0-0 in the Bundesliga was the lawn. David Wagner criticized that this was not watered.
“The place will be watered and the atmosphere will be different.” – David Wagner
Whether the tired appearance of the miners is now justified remains to be seen. However, the Schalke coach announced that both space and atmosphere in the stadium will be better on Tuesday.
Personally, it looks like Salif Sane, Markus Schubert and Benjamin Stambouli will be missing due to injury. In addition, with Suat Serdar, another service provider has joined the hospital. Jonjoe Kenny will probably be available again after a cold.
Probable lineup of Schalke:
↪ Predicted line-up (4-1-2-1-2): Nubel; Kenny, Kabak, Nastasic, Oczipka; Omar Mascarell, Caligiuri, McKennie, Harit; Raman, Gregoritsch
↪ Unavailable: Sane (Injured), Stambouli (Injured), Schubert (Injured)
↪ Doubtful: Serdar (Injured), Boujellab (Injured), Kutucu (Injured), Kenny (Illness)
↪ Coach: Wagner

Hertha – Statistics & current form
The newly rich Hertha now obviously knows what has struck the hour. Hooray football should no longer be expected from the capitals this season, because the only goal this season is to stay in the league. The joy of playing had to give way. In the three games after the winter break, Jürgen Klinsmann’s elf acts rather destructively.
Securing their own goal and extremely committed duel management are intended to guarantee the Big City club to remain in the Bundesliga. The major goals, including the return to the international stage, are to be aimed for in the coming season. This year Hertha has won once, lost once and played a draw.
While the effort on the transfer market has increased exorbitantly, the Berliners play on the lawn rather minimalist. That means that on Tuesday not many chances for the team of Jürgen Klinsmann can be expected. After Düsseldorf and Union Berlin, Hertha has scored the fewest goals in the German upper house.
So it wasn’t a big surprise that Hertha couldn’t get past 0-0 last Friday. The Berliners walled up this one meter over long distances. Not much is currently coming together in the attack. Therefore, between Schalke and Hertha, the prediction is clear that the capitals will not score many goals.
Jürgen Klinsmann is not a man who is afraid of a conflict and that is why the former national coach does not accept the statements made by Schalke coach David Wagner.
“Schalke can then play Tiki-Taka at home in the cup on Tuesday.” – Jürgen Klinsmann
He said smugly that he expected Schalke’s Tiki-Taka like Barcelona on Tuesday in the best of times on the watered lawn. A continuation of the dispute does not seem to be impossible.
In terms of personnel, the situation in Berlin is relatively good. Otherwise, only new signing Matheus Cunha is missing, who plays the Olympic qualification with the Brazilian U23. Newcomer Krzysztof Piatek is hoping for his first game from the start after his wild card game on Friday.
Probable lineup of Hertha:
↪ Predicted line-up (4-1-4-1): Jarstein; Klunter, Stark, Torunarigha, Mittelstadt; Ascacibar; Lukebakio, Maier, Grujic, Dilrosun; Piatek
↪ Unavailable: Matheus Cunha (International duty)
↪ Doubtful: Darida (Illness)
↪ Coach: Klinsmann

Schalke vs Hertha Direct comparison & statistics highlights
Altogether there are 91 competitive games in the history books between Schalke 04 and Hertha BSC. In direct comparison, the miners are 43:32 ahead of Siegen. 16 games ended in a draw. There is not much to report between these two clubs about a long series. This season Schalke won 3-0 at home in the Bundesliga against Hertha and played 0-0 in Berlin last Friday.
In the DFB Cup, both teams face each other for the seventh time on Tuesday. However, these duels took place at a time when, as in the FA Cup, a second leg had to be decided after a draw in the first leg. The three teams were drawn three times, there was three replay – Schalke prevailed twice, Hertha only once.
Schalke vs Hertha Free Betting Tips Pro vied by CoreBet Tipsters
On Tuesday, it will probably be less about playing qualities than about the absolute will to make the leap into the quarter-finals of the DFB Cup. Schalke and Hertha are both mixed in 2020. An encounter at eye level should therefore be expected.
After all, the two teams only met last Friday for a Bundesliga game in Berlin. The rivals separated with a goalless draw. We don’t expect many goals in the cup either. Therefore, a bet on bottom goals (-2.5) seems perfectly appropriate between Schalke and Hertha.
