Germany – DFB Pokal
Date: Tuesday, 22 December 2020
Kick-off at 17:30 UK/ 18:30 CET
Venue: Donau Stadion.
Ulm had a surprise win at home against the likes of Aue with a 2-0 scoreline in their previous DFB fixture to advance to the 1/16 finals in the tournament. The host will aim to repeat the triumph at home.
Schalke was on the road in their last match in the campaign this term. The 1-4 win on the road against the likes of Schweinfurt last time out might have improved the morale of the players.

Ulm vs Schalke Prediction
The match is sizing to be a high-scoring affair, with the visitor coming in hot with a 3+ margin win in their last outing in the tournament this season. Ulm had a clean sheet win in the last clash in the DFB fixture, but they cannot take the next opponents lightly in the middle.
The host enjoys the ground advantage in the game, but faring against a Bundesliga opponent will not be a walk in the park for the team competing in Regionalliga Sudwest. Their only hope is to take advantage of the five-game winless streak of the visitors in Bundesliga.
However, Schalke has a decent squad strength to trouble the home team’s defense despite their dip in form in the top tier campaign. The away win in full-time will be the ideal choice, but the odds are too low for any decent returns in the encounter.
The tip for over 2.5 goals will probably be the best bet for the punters from the goals area. Along with that, the tip for Schalke to win with a -1 handicap will also serve the purpose to yield decent returns in the clash.
