Second place meets 11th as Wolfsburg travel to Schalke in an attempt to shorten the distance between them and the Bundesliga leaders. Wolfsburg has six wins in a row in all competitions, while Schalke comes from two consecutive defeats, one in Champions League at the hands of Sporting, and the second one against Freiburg who is placed on the 13th place. This is a great chance to get an account with the best betting agent and start your betting life with the right foot.
Struggling in the second half of the table is something unusual for Schalke, but their form has been all over the place this season, as each win has been alternated with a loss. Dennis Aogo is suspended for the hosts while Farfan, Kolasinic, Giefer, Draxler, and Goretzka will miss the match due to injuries. That will give Höwedes and most likely Kirchhoff the chance to play as Schalke’s center- back pairing.
Wolfsburg are not only the second placed Bundesliga team, but they also have the second-best attack Bundesliga has to offer, as they have scored 23 goals. In their last five away games, they won twice, lost twice and had a draw against Hoffenheim. Ochs and Lopes will miss to injury but that does not hinder in any way Wolfsburg’s record of winning their last six Bundesliga matches. The visitors represent an impediment in Schalke’s way of reaching a Champions League spot, but both teams are rather unpredictable even if Wolfsburg display the better form at the moment.
The head to head record favors the hosts as in the last five meetings; Schalke won four of them, Wolfsburg latest win dates back to 2013. Any outcome is possible here, which is why you should sign up for the best betting platform for multiple bookmakers if you want to bet on this match.
