Schalke 04 vs Wolfsburg: A match without significance for Schalke
Schalke 04 vs Wolfsburg: Match preview
No one believed that this match will be played without any importance for Schalke. That is something that we can thank to Schalke’s players. Namely, this team has one of the worst streaks in the league and because of that they will not play European competition next year.
On the other side, Wolfsburg is in the zone that leads to the Europe League. Still, they are not safe and need a good result in this match. Pressure is on their side. Both teams are having problems with injured players.
Schalke 04 team news:
We don’t know what else to say about the “royal blues” and their latest results. Schalke broke its own negative record for the number of consecutive games without a win.
For now, they are at level 14, and it is not impossible for them to finish the season at level 16. Since the game of the first spring round, back in January, when they beat Monchengladbach at their “Weltins Arena” Schalke have not scored three points.
It is simply amazing that they are still in a very solid 10th place. They lost in the last round in Frankfurt, and before that they had two tied draws. A team that wanted to play in Europe has disappointed everyone.
Probable lineup: Nubel, Kenny, Oczipka, Kabak, Miranda, Caligiuri, Schopf, McKennie, Matondo, Boujellab, Raman.
Wolfsburg team news:
For the “wolves”, this match is important for another reason. The Wolfsburg team has a good chance of playing in Europe again. For that they need to keep the current 6th place, or even go down one position.
For the two remaining places in the qualifications for the Europa League, three teams are in the game.In addition to them, Hoffenheim and Freiburg. Wolfsburg does not like the fact that they will welcome the champion Bayern in the last round, but the Bavarians will not have the imperative to win in that match either.
Still, that is why they need to win this match, to be sure that everything depends on them.
Probable lineup: Casteels, Mbabu, Pongracic, Brooks, Roussillon, Steffen, Arnold, Gerhardt, Schlager, Brekalo; Weghorst.
The guest should celebrate, but something tells us that Schalke can finally show something. That is why our prediction for this match is a lot of goals. To be concrete, we expect at least three goals to be scored.
Wolfsburg is a favorite, but we should be careful with the prediction who will win the match.
