Ingolstadt take on the visitors Schalke 04 at "Audi Sportpark" in the last 34 round of the Bundesliga in the season 2016/2017. The match will be played in Cologne on Saturday, May 20th.
Despite all their efforts, Ingolstadt relegate from the German elite division as the team couldn't take the winning pace at the end of the season: "Die Schanzer" come up to the forthcoming battle with five-clash run without victories after three consecutive triumphs. Ingolstadt recorded draws in three recent rounds: vs. RB Leipzig 0:0, vs. Bayer Leverkusen 1:1 and vs. SC Freiburg 1:1. After 33 matchdays "Die Schanzer" occupy the 17th place in the Bundesliga standings with 31 points gained and 35-56 goal difference and will not move away from it for sure. The main reason of Ingolstadt's relegation is their disastrous performance at their own turf: 16 points earned, 20 goals for and 29 goals against in 16 encounters which is the worst result in the elite division.

At the start of the season Schalke 04 were expected at least to fight for the Eurocups or even for the medals. However, "Die Konigsblauen" completely collapsed in this season. With one gameweek left by the end of the season, the side occupies the 10th place in the Bundesliga table with 42 points earned. Schalke 04 demonstrate awful performance on the road resulting in 13 points taken with 15-24 goal difference in 13 clashes.
Ingolstadt and Schalke 04 met three times in their history with total balance: a draw and one victory in favour of each team. The forthcoming fight has no tournament value for the opponents, nevertheless, the hosts must show their best football in face of their fans and pick up points in their last Bundesliga battle at the moment.
Prediction for the match: Ingolstadt to win with 0.0 Asian handicap.
