Wolfsburg vs Schalke Live Stats & Betting Odds

Wolfsburg News and Form – Can the Wolves make home advantage count?

Oliver Glasner’s Wolfsburg are just outside of the top seven in the Bundesliga. So far, the Wolves have won six, drawn five and lost four. They have only scored 17 times, but no team in Germany’s top tier have conceded fewer (15) to this point.

After losing two Bundesliga games in a row to Werder Bremen and Oleksandria (UEFA Europa League), Wolfsburg have won their last two in league and cup. Having secured a 1-0 European victory over French Ligue 1 side Saint-Etienne, the Wolves beat high flying Borussia Monchengladbach 2-1 at the Volkswagen Arena last Sunday.

Wolfsburg have had a mixed bag of results at home in the league this season, winning three, drawing three and losing two. After losing four in a row, however, Glasner’s troops have now won their last two. Can they make home advantage count in midweek?

Schalke News and Form – Will the in-form Royals Blues pick up another away win?

Schalke had a season to forget last term, finishing in a lowly 14th spot. However, they look to be back to their best under David Wagner this time around, sitting in fourth place with 28 points to their name. The Royals Blues are just five points adrift of first-placed Red Bull Leipzig ahead of this round of fixtures.

Schalke have the second-best away record in the league up until now. Wagner’s men have been very solid on their travels, winning four, drawing one and losing just two. Before losing at Bayer Leverkusen in their last away match, Schalke had won three in a row away from home in all competitions.

Schalke beat Eintracht Frankfurt 1-0 at the Veltins-Arena thanks to a Benito Raman goal last time out. Can the Miners follow that up with a victory on the road this Wednesday night?

Wolfsburg vs Schalke Predictions

Schalke win: Wolfsburg have blown hot and cold lately, winning four and losing six of their previous ten across all competitions. The Wolves’ first league defeat of the season came in early November when they were beaten 3-0 at Borussia Dortmund – they have gone on to lose three of the following five in the Bundesliga.

Schalke have already put last season’s struggles behind them, as Wagner’s boys are sitting pretty in fourth spot at the moment. The Miners head to Lower Saxony having won four of their last six in the Bundesliga. I can see the visitors taking the points at the Volkswagen Arena, with the away win priced at 11/5.

Wolfsburg have failed to score in just two home games this term, while Schalke have netted in all bar two matches on the road. Take a punt on the away side to win and both teams to score at 5/1.
