Schalke vs Manchester City Prediction & Betting tips
This is a very complicated game that the German team of Schalke 04 will have to face on Wednesday when, at the Veltins Arena in Gelsenkirchen, they are visited by a candidate to fight the title of the competition, such as the Englishman Manchester City, in play corresponding to the first leg of the UEFA Champions League round of 16.
After reaching the German runner-up last season, the performance of Schalke 04 in this season 2018/19 presented a brutal fall and so those led by Domenico Tedesco left it demonstrated last weekend when in this same scenario did not pass the tie to zero goals against Freiburg and thus ranked 14th with 23 points, thanks to their six wins, five draws and eleven defeats, and must be careful with the relegation zone, since the difference with Stuttgart is of just eight points.
And so for much Schalke 04 has his mind set his other two tournaments, remember that the cast of Gelsenkirchen qualified for the quarterfinals of the DFB Pokal where he will face Werder Bremen and the series of knockout stages of the UEFA Champions League that starts this Wednesday.
It must be said that although the German team managed to advance to this round, more is due to the weakness that was his group which was made up of teams like Galatasaray, Lokomotiv Moscow, and this earned him to add 11 points thanks to his three victories , two draws and one defeat, so there are some doubts about what he can do on Wednesday against powerful Manchester City.
Those led by Pep Guardiola have been willing to win everything in this season 2018/19 and since the first game made it clear. And we say it because the city cast started the season playing the title of the Supercopa de Inglaterra where they beat Chelsea.
As for their participation in the English League Cup, the city cast at the end of this month of February disputes the final with Chelsea, while in the UEFA FA Cup they remain in competition when they beat Newport County, and if we have to refer to their participation in the English Premier League, come to beat Chelsea by 6-0 adding the third consecutive victory in the Premier to thus equal in the first place to Liverpool, and now is willing to maintain that level in their game for the Champions League of Europe.
It must be said that Manchester City started the European competition with some doubts after losing at home 1-2 to Olympique Lyon, but after that everything was quite positive to the point that they finished in the first place of the group with 13 points thanks to their four victories, a draw and a defeat.
As for direct confrontations, these teams have met once and was the UEFA Europa League season 2008/09 and at that time the win favored the English team by 0-2.
