Wolfsburg vs Schalke
Germany – DFB Pokal
Date: Wednesday, 3 February 2021
Kick-off at 17:30 UK/ 18:30 CET
Venue: Volkswagen Arena.
The Wolves are currently the third best team in the German top flight, behind defending champions Bayern, and new contenders Leipzig.
They need a surplus of just three points to climb to the second spot in the table, and only one other squad has conceded fewer goals than them.
They have been very dominating this season that their only three losses in all competitions had come against Bayern, Dortmund, and in the Europa League.
Meanwhile, the Miners are placed dead last in the league table, and easily have been the worst team in the whole competition. They have won just once this whole season, and are easily the major contenders to get relegated at the end of the campaign.
Note that they have also conceded the most number of goals of all the teams in the German Bundesliga as well.
Furthermore, Oliver Glasner’s men also have a great h2h record against this rival over the past several years.
By the looks of things, expect Wolfsburg to deliver a winning performance this Wednesday.
Wolfsburg vs Schalke: Head-to-head (h2h)
- The Wolves are on a two-match winning run.
- They have scored a total of six goals from the former two clashes.
- At this venue, the hosts have recorded nine of the preceding thirteen overall wins.
- The home team had two or more goals in eight of the previous thirteen encounters.
Wolfsburg vs Schalke Prediction
Christian Gross’s men were winless in 12 of their past 14 overall match-ups, and they had conceded two or more goals in ten of the last fourteen games. They have also won just twice on the road after 2019, and both these wins had come in the DFB Pokal.
On the other hand, their counterparts are on a three-fixture winning run, and they have been completely unbeaten at home this whole season in all competitions.
On top of that, the Wolves also have a great h2h record against this opponent over the past two decades.
As such, expect Wolfsburg to emerge victorious this Wednesday at the Volkswagen Arena.
