Wolfsburg vs Schalke
2018/19 German Bundesliga
Date: Saturday 25th August 2018
Kick off at 14:30 UK/ 15:30 CET
Venue: Volkswagen Arena (Wolfsburg).
These two great German sides will go head to head on the opening day of the season, and it will be intriguing to see what will come of the game.
Wolfsburg wanted to improve their attack and they have done so with the 9m euro purchase of Daniel Ginczek from VFB Stuttgart, the club will be hoping that he can score vital goals for them this season.
They have also brought in quality in defence buying Jerome Roussillon for over 4m euros from Ligue 1 side Montpellier. However Wolfsburg’s biggest signing was almost 10m euros spent on striker Wout Weghorst from AZ Alkmaar
Schalke have had some big star names at the club in recent years and they have splashed the cash over 5m euros on defender Hamza Mendyl who impressed at Lille.
The 04’s big buy was paying 10m euros for Omar Mascarell the midfielder comes from Frankfurt and that will be beneficial for the team as he knows the Bundesliga very well and should be able to fit in fairly quickly.
Betting is close on this game but the bookmakers have the away side Schalke down as just the favourites to get the win.

Wolfsburg vs Schalke: Prediction
Both teams have spent big and the fans will want to be seeing results on the pitch.
Even though this fixture has a history for very few goals, we feel with some of the attacking quality brought in that we can see a few goals in this game.
For medium stakes therefore we will back over 3.5 goals. But our main bet will be to see both teams to score in a game that should be free flowing and end to end football.
