Team Form
Schalke 04

Schalke 04’s 3-0 demolition job against Hamburg SV proved that they are back on their royal form after a slow start this season and almost dropping out of the Champions League.

 

Klaas Jan Huntelaar triggered the Royal Blues’ momentum during their Hamburg encounter. The striker, who clearly missed the pitch after being sidelined for several months made a great comeback when he nailed Schalke’s first goal. Also eager to score is the reliable Jefferson Farfan and Max Meyer’s goal on the 56th sealed Hamburg’s fate. As a result, not only did the club sealed a win, it also propelled their rank to the 5th spot of the Bundesliga table.

 

Schalke’s winning form is evident. They have only lost once in their recent matches. Moreover, they have kept a clean sheet in their last three (3) home encounters. With Huntelaar’s recovery, it is possible for the squad to move even higher. The presence of another prolific player, Julian Draxler, Kevin Prince Boateng and the newly signed striker, Joseph Boyamba makes Schalke a strong force to be reckoned with.

 

Wolfsburg

Despite the 3-1 loss that they suffered from Hannover 96’s hands, this does not eliminate Wolfsburg from the list of strong contenders in Bundesliga.

 

Although they were defeated, Wolfsburg, still, displays a strong form. The above-mentioned loss was their first during their last six (6) encounters. It is hard to disregard what they can do on the pitch as they only trail Schalke by a single point.

 

Moreover, if one has to consider their past performance over the Royal Blues, it can be seen that they have dominated four (4) of their last six (6) recent encounters and there is a high possibility for them to repeat history.

 

Online betting’s top pick: A stalemate

Waving the white flag would be the hardest thing that these clubs can ever do. One can only expect a down the wire match, which is best settled by an even steven finish.
