Wolfsburg Prediction – Can Wolfsburg back up?

After losing 4 of their previous 5 matches in the German top flight, Wolfsburg pulled a bit of a rabbit out of the hat last time out in the Bundesliga when they recorded a 2-1 home win against 2nd placed Borussia Moenchengladbach.

Earlier defeats to Borussia Dortmund 3-0, Bayer Leverkusen 2-0, Werder Bremen 3-2 and a 1-0 loss to Freiburg had seemed to resign Wolfsburg to a bottom half position in the Bundesliga for quite a while with no prospects of any revival in the immediate future.

However, the win over ‘Gladbach now means that if Wolfsburg capture another three points in Wednesday night’s clash against Schalke, this could lift Wolfsburg up into 6th place and one of the possible European spots.

before we get too carried away though, Wolfsburg have posted a mixed bag of results on home turf at their VOLKSWAGEN ARENA with a record of 3-3-2 9/9 to date, so perhaps the goal markets are the best option here; 5 of Wolfsburg’s 8 home matches so far have seen both teams score.

Schalke Prediction – Can Schalke move into 2nd spot?

4th placed Schalke captured a third win in four matches in the Bundesliga on Sunday when they registered a 1-0 home win against Eintracht Frankfurt which followed earlier recent wins over Werder Bremen 2-1 away and a 2-1 home win against Union Berlin.

With just 1 defeat out of their last 7 matches overall in the German top flight, Schalke will be in reasonably confident mood that they can get something out of this trip to Wolfsburg, despite losing last time out on their travels at Bayer Leverkusen in a 2-1 loss.

The visitors had previously recorded back-to-back wins on the road at Augsburg and Werder Bremen within a reasonable overall away record of 4-1-2 14/9 but their last 5 away matches have produced 3 wins and 2 defeats.

With 5 of Schalke’s 7 away matches to date resulting in both teams scoring, goals looks the best option ahead of this clash and the previous history between these two teams also suggests both are capable of scoring and conceding here.
