Schalke 04 vs Wolfsburg – DFB Pokal: In one of the matches that takes place this Wednesday in Germany, counting towards the DFB Pokal’s quarter-finals.
The local side Schalke 04 and the visiting side Wolfsburg face off in the city of Gelsenkirchen, at the Veltins Arena,
on a match between two teams that will meet for the 2nd time this season, after the encounter on the Bundesliga, that finished with a 1-1 draw in October, where the teams cancelled each other out.
The home side is making a very positive campaign, being on the Champions League’s qualification spots in terms of the Bundesliga and reaching, so far, a more or less advanced stage on the DFB Pokal, after knocking out BFC Dynamo, Wehen and Koln,
although it is also true that they didn’t face any opponents really capable of matching their quality, having in this match the toughest opponent so far on this cup campaign.
The team is coming off a streak of some inconsistency in terms of results, after a streak of very positive results.
As for the visitors, they are continuing their more or less depressing campaign in terms of the Bundesliga, still being a team that is fighting to avoid relegation, living up to what has been their objective in the last couple of seasons,
with the cup maybe being their salvation of a season that’s not being exactly positive, with the club already switching managers this season, due to the team’s poor record over the course of the season so far.
Schalke 04 vs Wolfsburg – Betting Tip and Prediction:
With a Schalke 04 that presents itself much more consistent than their opponents and being more stable as a club, I believe that the local side will be able to use the home advantage in their favour and manage to win in this encounter,
something that I believe can and will happen, although, still, with some difficulty.
