Wolfsburg Vs Schalke Betting Tips

Following two Bundesliga games, Wolfsburg remains winless, although their schedule is challenging in the early going. After playing Werder Bremen to a 2-2 tie in the opening round, Wolfsburg fell to Bayern Munich 2-0 last weekend as was predicted. For Wolfsburg to secure their first season victory, they have another challenging road encounter the following week against RB Leipzig.

Wolfsburg can take heart from the fact that they have played well recently at home, scoring at least twice in each of their past four games. Additionally, at least three goals were scored in each of Wolfsburg’s previous four home games.

Wolfsburg has a strong recent record against Schalke 04, having won 4 of their last six meetings. The result of their most recent game, which was played in March 2021, was a resounding 5-0 Wolfsburg victory at home.

Jonas Wind, a 24-year-old striker for Wolfsburg, suffered an injury during a training session last week and will be sidelined for a few weeks. Max Kruse, a seasoned player, might receive more opportunities to play starting this weekend as he already missed the game against Bayern Munich.

Last weekend, Schalke 04 drew 2-2 with Borussia Monchengladbach and fell 3-1 at Koln. Last week, they were fortunate to snag a point by scoring an equalizing penalty goal late in the extra period.
In any case, Schalke 04 does not cherish their recent Bundesliga travels. Schalke 04 dropped to the 2. Bundesliga, after losing eight straight away games a few seasons back.

Five of Schalke 04’s previous six games have finished with three or more goals scored. After two games, neither club has a victory, but I think Wolfsburg is a better team than Schalke 04. Niko Kovac, Wolfsburg’s coach, is being gradually adopted. Despite falling to champions Bayern Munich last week, Wolfsburg had several promising traits.

The athletes at Schalke 04 frequently run during matches. After being promoted to the Bundesliga, there is little doubt that they are motivated, but their defense is still shaky.

Prediction: This may be a tight match, but Wolfsburg has a better chance of winning.

Wolfsburg will try to cheer up the crowd when they welcome Schalke to their Volkswagen Arena on Saturday after failing to ruin Bayern Munich’s celebration at Allianz Arena. 

The Wolves performances appear to be considerably better than their results, which has caused the odds for a home victory to decrease. Bartol Franjic, Omar Marmoush, Jonas Wind, Killian Fisher, and Yannick Gerhardt are all out of the running due to injuries, leaving Max Kruse in contention to make his debut.

The newcomers are not considered good travelers, but Die Knappen came from behind to share the victory with Borussia M’gladbach. This time, the home victory should be taken into consideration. Since Dominik Drexler has not yet completed his suspension, he should be the lone absentee from the away team traveling to Wolfsburg.

After losing to Bayern Munich by a score of 2-0 in their previous Bundesliga 1 match, VfL Wolfsburg won’t want a recurrence of that performance here. In that encounter, VfL Wolfsburg had 32% possession and eight shots at goal, with two on target. Bayern München, on the other hand, had 24 shots on goal, with 8 of those being on target. Bayern Munich scored goals through Jamal Musiala (33′) and Thomas Müller (43′).

The VfL Wolfsburg of Niko Kova has received rewards for their shots on goal seven times during their last six games, with an average of 1.17 goals scored per game. Pre-match data indicates that VfL Wolfsburg:

  • They have played four league games without suffering a loss to Schalke.
  • They are undefeated in their last four home league games and 
  • They have lost both of their last two league games at home.

Prior to this, Schalke and Borussia Mönchengladbach tied 2-2 in a Bundesliga 1 match.

In that contest, Schalke had 32% of the possession, and 4 of their 12 shots on goal were successful. Marius Bülter (93′) and Rodrigo Zalazar (29′) scored the goals for Schalke. Borussia Mönchengladbach, their adversaries, had 14 shots at goal, with 8 finding the back of the net. Borussia Mönchengladbach scored with Jonas Hofmann and Marcus Thuram (72′ and 78′ respectively).

Looking at their recent results, Schalke has conceded goals in 5 of their previous six games, allowing opponents to score nine goals. Schalke needs to step up their defense. But there’s no guarantee that tendency will continue with this game. Before this match, Schalke had not beaten VfL Wolfsburg on the road in the previous three meetings.
