It’s been a season of contrasting fortunes for these two clubs. Wolfsburg are looking good for a top four finish whilst opponents Schalke are staring down the barrel of relegation.

Wolfsburg Preview – Will Wolfsburg bounce back from defeat last time out to remain in command of third place?

It’s been a hugely promising season for Wolfsburg to this point and the challenge for them is ensuring that they maintain the same level of performance between now and the campaign, and ultimately finish in the top four. They have been in the Champions League spots for the majority of the season and hold a five point advantage over fifth place Bayer Leverkusen in fifth.

Clearly head coach Oliver Glasner will be hoping to finish in their current position of third – which would be their highest placing since 2015 – but the aim is definitely Champions League football, so they have something of a cushion over the teams currently below fourth.


Our betting prediction:
Wolfsburg to score in both halves

Bet at William Hill

(odds taken 2000 GMT, Friday 12 March)
Glasner will be looking for his team to bounce back from consecutive defeats (losing to Leipzig in the German Cup before a league defeat away to Hoffenheim), particularly as it’s the first time this season where that has occurred. Wolfsburg were unbeaten in nine league games before that defeat last weekend and if they can recapture that level of consistency then it should be an extremely positive conclusion.
Wolfsburg are yet to taste defeat on home soil in the league this season. Seven wins and four draws is a sign of how strong they are in their own stadium and they will be confident furthering that this weekend.

Schalke Preview – Are Schalke capable of giving themselves some hope of survival with their second win of the season?

The signs were there in the second half of last season that Schalke were heading for a rude awakening. After beating Borussia Monchengladbach in the first game after the winter break, Schalke failed to win any of their remaining 16 matches – eventually finishing in 12th spot but only eight points above the relegation zone. Considering they were in the top four in January it was a real fall from grace.

With little change in the close season, this campaign has been much of the same. Just one win in 24 league games thus far tells it’s own story and the club sit bottom – 11 points from safety.

Dimitrios Grammozis is the latest man to take charge of the club, the Greek becomes the fifth different head coach already this season. His first game was a goalless draw against Mainz (the team who sit directly above them) so it doesn’t bode well that his appointment will inspire the team to what would be a miraculous comeback.

With their only victory in the league coming at home to Hoffenheim it means Schalke are still looking for their first away victory of the season. They have taken just four points from a possible 33 on their travels.


Wolfsburg vs Schalke Betting Advice

Wolfsburg will see this as the perfect game to bounce back from their first defeat in the league since the 3rd of January. Schalke are horrendous on the road. No wins, the fewest goals scored away from home and the most conceded. It is grim whichever way you look at it, and their performance last weekend doesn’t suggest a change of fortunes any time soon.

The home team are unbeaten in their last four against Schalke, winning their last three – two of which were this season.


Key Facts – Wolfsburg vs Schalke Betting Tip

  • Wolfsburg were unbeaten in nine league games before defeat away to Hoffenheim last week
  • Schalke remain on the hunt for their first away win of the season
  • Wolfsburg are unbeaten in their last four meetings in this fixture, winning three of them


This should be straightforward for a team who are very strong at home. Wolfsburg have kept four clean sheets in their last five home games, and i’m taking them to do that again as well as collecting three points.
