Schalke vs Wolfsburg Prediction, Betting Tips and Match Preview for German Bundesliga clash on Saturday, 20 June 2020. Kick off 14:30 UK/ 15:30 CET at the Veltins Arena.
The Wolves, Hoffenheim, and Freiburg are separated by just a single point, and they are racing for the last two European spots. And keep note that the first of these two positions afford a direct entry into the Europa League, while the other one would take the team just till the qualification phase.
Despite their overall performances being awry, the Wolves have been on a roll on the road recently – winning six of their prior eight road trips. On the other hand, the Miners have been one of the worst teams in the whole competition, with their active 16-game winless run.
By the looks of things, we could count on Wolfsburg to make the most of this match-up against a struggling opponent, and register a much-needed win on the board.

Schalke vs Wolfsburg: Prediction
The Miners lost 2-1 on the road the last match-day, against Frankfurt. Realizing the bad form the guests were in, Eintracht tried to dominate proceedings from the get-go. They scored their first goal in the 28th minute, and later added one more – all the while conceding just one in return.
In the meantime, the Wolves lost 3-0 on the road the past match-day, against the Foals. Jonas Hofmann chipped in with a brace, and that too within the 30th minute to totally take out the guests from the game.
However, at present, the Wolves are huge favorites for this fixture. The prime reason would be the terrible run the Miners have been on. Not only are they are on a 16-game winless run, but they have lost eight of their past eleven fixtures too.
At home, they have scored a total of two goals from their prior six appearances, and they have a total of five wins here this whole season. On the other hand, the Wolves have been determined to make Europe at any cost.
They were unbeaten in seven of their past eight away fixtures, and they also managed to win six of these. Considering these stats, it’s more than evident that Wolfsburg are on course to deliver a convincing win this Saturday.
