Schalke vs Werder Bremen Prediction & Match Preview

Schalke vs Werder Bremen Prediction, Betting Tips and Match Preview for German Bundesliga clash on 30 May 2020, Saturday. Kick off at 14:30 UK/ 15:30 CET at the Veltins Arena (Gelsenkirchen).

The River Islanders are placed in the relegation zone at the moment, and need a surplus of six points to avoid getting the boot.

However, they do have a game in hand, and are taking on the extremely out-of-form Royal Blues. On top of that, the River Islanders do have a great h2h record against them in recent times. Likely, expect a hard-fought Werder Bremen win.

Schalke vs Werder Bremen Head-to-head (h2h)

  • The River Islanders won four of the past five clashes.
  • The Royal Blues conceded two or more goals in four of the previous five encounters.
  • Eight of the last eleven overall wins had gone to the teams on the road.
  • The guests are on a three-match winning run at this stadium.
  • Since 2011, not once have the visitors failed to score at this venue.

Schalke vs Werder Bremen Prediction

The Royal Blues were defeated 2-1 on the road the last match-day, by Dusseldorf. Contrary to usual, the former had a winning chance, as they were leading 0-1 at the start of the first half, but the squad later conceded two goals to let go of that advantage. With this loss, the scope of the Royal Blues making it into Europe was drastically reduced.

Meanwhile, the River Islanders were held to a goalless draw at home the prior game week, by Monchengladbach. The team did try their best for a win, but the visitors smartly defended the runs made by the home offense, and left with a solitary point.

As things stand, the River Islanders have the upper hand. The reason being, they are chasing a safe spot in the table, and are desperate, while their counterparts are already in a safe position in standings, and do not have a chance to make it to the European zone. Likely, motivation-wise, the River Islanders have more reason to give it all on the pitch.

Going on, the Royal Blues are on a 12-match winless run, and they had lost six of their former seven games. The team had also conceded a total of 19 goals from their prior seven fixtures, while having failed to score in six of the preceding eight match-ups.

Moreover, they had lost four of the previous six h2h clashes, and are on a losing streak at this venue in three such fixtures. Considering these observations, it’s deduced that Werder Bremen should avoid a loss at the very least this Saturday.
