Schalke- Week 15

Schalke 04 vs. FC Cologne

 

Match Date: 13 December 2014 (local time)

Venue: Veltins Arena

 

Already in their 3rd consecutive victory, the Royal Blues are keen on achieving their 4th victory at home.

 

Schalke’s journey to the top wasn’t an easy one. They’ve experienced ups and downs that almost threw them to the relegation zone. But massive improvements came to life. The team is now on a winning streak and comfortably occupies the 5th spot. They’re now on the verge of clinching another qualifying spot for the European competitions.

 

For the newly-promoted FC Cologne, meeting Schalke in the Veltins Arena is a risk. The host has been successful in their last 7 matches at home, whereas Cologne is already dwindling in a 3-match defeat.

 

Cologne can only hope for a draw. Well, at least they will not go home empty-handed. But the reality is that a stalemate may not materialize. The football betting favorite will clearly dominate the match.

 

Prediction

Schalke 04 3- 0 FC Cologne

Werder Bremen vs. Hannover 96

 

Match Date: 13 December 2014 (local time)

Venue: Dreamstadion

 

Werder Bremen is already experiencing the effects of its lackluster performance during the start of the season. The club hangs on for its life in the 17th spot of the league table and is a strong relegation candidate. This is despite its seemingly good, but inconsistent display.

 

Hannover knows the team quality and form that Werder shows and they’ll most likely take advantage of the situation. They are also experiencing a poor run too. Its last 3 matches ended in defeat. This has already hampered their rise in the league table and right now, they’re indeed, desperate for a victory.

 

Prediction

Werder Bremen 0-1 Hannover 96
