Schalke vs Koln – DFB Pokal : In one of the several matches of this Tuesday, in Germany
Counting towards the round of 16 of the DFB Pokal, the local team Schalke 04 and the visiting team Koln will face off in Gelsenkirchen, at the Veltins Arena.
The home side comes into this stage after eliminating BFC Dynamo and Wehen on the previous rounds, while Koln needed to eliminate Leher and Hertha Brelin to get into this stage of the competition.
The home side comes into this match going through a revival period in sporting terms (or so it seems), making a good campaign domestically,
namely in the Bundesliga, where the team is on the top spots and has been making good results and exhibitions.
Still, the team is coming off a less positive streak of matches, only getting 1 win on their last 4 matches, having tied the other 3 matches,
with this also being the worst streak of Tedesco’s team, that has conceded goals in every match of this period, totaling 11 goals
As for the visiting side, they are going through a dark period on this sporting year, sitting in last place of the Bundesliga and being practically condemned to relegation, after a couple of positive seasons in the Bundesliga.
On the DFB Pokal, the team has the opportunity to save this terrible season, although they have a very tough task ahead of them, playing in one of the toughest grounds in Germany.
Schalke vs Koln – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Due to the fact that this is a knockout match, especially because of that,
I believe on a balanced match and without many goals, even because Koln should complicate things to the hosts, due to the recent managerial change (that already had an impact).
