Schalke vs Wolfsburg predictions and betting tips on February 10, 2023
On February 10, Veltins Arena (Gelsenkirchen) will host the match of the 20th round of the German Bundesliga, in which Schalke will compete with Wolfsburg. The battle will start at 20:30 CET.
The team was considered to be quite a significant force in German football for a long time. It is noteworthy that a sharp decline began after the team repeated the best result for more than half a century – it took the 2nd place in the 2017/2018 season. After a couple of years, “the Miners” “dived” into the Bundesliga 2. To tell the truth, it got out of there right away. Nevertheless, the team does not look combat-ready at the level of the top division of Germany: there are only a couple of victories, a meager number of points and more than a natural place at the very bottom of the standings. Having begun to play after the protracted pause, the club started with a 0-3 defeat in the match with Eintracht and a terrible 1-6 misfire in the struggle against RB Leipzig, and only the home game with Koln brought a goalless draw. Then, the same score was repeated in the battle with Borussia Monchengladbach. It goes without saying that there is a kind of progress, but it is extremely insufficient.
The club, being under the rule of Glasner, “climbed” to the 4th place in the previous season, which could give a ticket to the Champions League. But after the departure of the higher mentioned mentor, everything was completely failed. Niko Kovač was declared to win back the positions. The Croatian specialist started hard in a new place, but his wards gained momentum step by step. A series of victories managed to be extended after a long break. Nevertheless, bright victories had been changed into defeats by the end of January – first, the team lost with a 1-2 score to Werder Bremen in the Bundesliga, then, it repeated the same result in the battle against Union in the DFB Pokal. After that, there scored two goals to Bayern Munich, which were answered with 4 ones, moreover, the grandee had already scored three times by the middle of the first half.
The statistics of head-to-head matches
Wolfsburg has got 4 wins in a row in the matches against Schalke. Still, the newcomer was able to survive and achieve an away goalless draw in “the Wolves' den” in August.
Bookmakers do not believe that Schalke will be able to continue to get points. We bet that Wolfsburg will finally replenish its “piggy bank” – thus, we believe that the guests will win in the following battle (odd: 1.92).
