Schalke 04 – Wolfsburg
Schalke 04 welcomes Wolfsburg in a game from the 18th round of the Bundesliga. Let’s take a look at this fixture at the Veltins Arena in the city of Gelsenkirchen.
Right now Schalke are 13th in the Bundesliga standings with 18 points won. The last season was very good for the Royal Blues and they finished 2nd in the standings, but now Domenico Tedesco’s team is having a lot of problems in the league. Since the start of the new season, Schalke’s record shows 5 wins, 3 and 9 losses. As you can see, the Royal Blues are too inconsistent to repeat their last campaign in the league.
In their last five games Schalke managed to win only once. It happened in the previous round, when they enjoyed a 3-1 win over Stuttgart away from home. Steven Skrzybski, Salif Sane and Ahmed Kutucu scored for Tedesco’s team. Nicolas Gonzalez scored for Stuttgart, but his goal was far from enough for the home team.
Wolfsburg on the other hand are having an excellent season so far. Right now the Wolves are 5th in the standings with 28 points, being in the fight for an European qualification. They even have a chance to chase a Top 4 finish and a return to the Champions League.
Right now Wolfsburg’s record shows 8 wins, 4 draws and 5 losses. In their last five games the Wolves are almos perfect – 4 wins and 1 draw. They only lost points during the draw against Hoffenheim at home.
In their last game Wolfsburg achieved a 3-2 win over Augsburg away from home. Josua Guilavogui, William and Yannick Gerhardt scored for Bruno Labbadia’s side, while Khedira and Cordova’s goals for Augsburg were not enough.
This is what we had to say about the Bundesliga clash between Schalke 04 and Wolfsburg at the Veltins Arena.
