Wolfsburg- Week 12

Schalke 04 vs. Wolfsburg

 

Match Date: 22 November 2014 (local time)

Venue: Veltins-Arena

 

Schalke 04

The Royal Blues is in dire need of regrouping as its inconsistent performance continues. Just recently, the team was forced to endure a 2-0 defeat against the match’s online betting minnow, Freiburg.

 

Schalke has not  been meeting expectations lately and this has raised criticisms towards Roberto Di Matteo’s ability to help the squad return to its winning ways.

 

Wolfsburg

Soaring high in the Bundesliga table is the league’s dark horse, Wolfsburg.

 

Unbeaten in its last six (6) matches, the team sits comfortably in the 2nd spot, with the possibility of claiming the title.

 

Considering how strong the squad is, there’s very little possibility for them to throw the white towel easily.

 

Prediction

Schalke 04 2-3 Wolfsburg

Hamburger SV vs. Werder Bremen

 

Match Date: 23 November 2014 (local time)

Venue: Imtech Arena

 

Hamburger SV

Hamburger’s had to pay the expensive price of losing to Wolfsburg during their last encounter. The said defeat pushed them into the rock bottom part of the table, with only nine (9) points under its belt.

 

After a stunning win against Bayer, many are expecting the club to continue its good start. Yet, it seems that all of their efforts simply went into waste as the league’s dark horse trampled unto them.

 

Werder Bremen

Improvements can be seen from Werder Bremen as the club slowly veers away from the relegation zone. Via outlasting VfB Stuttgart, the club has literally risen from the grave and is determined never to look back into the nightmare that it went through.

 

Prediction

Hamburger SV 0-1 Werder Bremen

 

***

VfB Stuttgart vs. Augsburg

 

Match Date: 23 November 2014 (local time)

Venue: Mercedes-Benz Arena

 

VfB Stuttgart

More problems arrive within Stuttgart’s camp as Werder Bremen snatched the three (3) points away from them.

 

The loss prevented the team from leaving the relegation zone and even fell into the rock bottom part of the table. Despite having the home court advantage, there’s a slim possibility for the group to steal the spotlight from the upbeat Augsburg.

 

Augsburg

A high spirited Augsburg visits Stuttgart in its attempt to further improve its rank in the Bundesliga table. After a narrow defeat to Schalke, the club returned to its winning ways when it thrashed the newly promoted Paderborn with three (3) solid goals. Augsburg now stands at the 7th spot of the table and is keen on penetrating the elague’s top five (5).

 

Prediction

VfB Stuttgart 0-3 Augsburg
