Schalke vs Werder Bremen Prediction & Betting tips
The championship in Germany should have been finally decided, but there is still a lot at stake for the 17 remaining teams on the last six match days. The fight for the Champions League, the Europa League and relegation includes almost all 17 teams.
In Gelsenkirchen, Schalke and Werder will face Bremen on Saturday afternoon at conference time. Although Schalke is clearly ahead of the guests in the table, the latest development points in completely opposite directions. Schalke is in free fall, while Bremen is again hopeful.
The miners from David Wagner must be happy about the many points from the autumn, otherwise the relegation battle could not be avoided. The road to Europe appears utopian in the current constitution. However, the pressure not only weighs on the shoulders of S04, but also on the Kohfeldt charges.
With five points behind the relegation place, victories are imperative. Our betting base odds comparison reveals relatively balanced odds between Schalke and Werder Bremen. An analysis for this game can be found in the coming lines, the remaining Bundesliga games are analyzed in the Bundesliga category.
The club from Gelsenkirchen has arrived on the bitter ground of reality. At the end of the first half of the season, the youngsters still dreamed of returning to the UEFA Champions League. Only the goal difference separated the Wagner charges from a top four place in the German Bundesliga.
In the meantime, the Champions League dream is no longer alive, but after the Wednesday game, sports director Jochen Schneider has even ticked off the Europa League. The reason for this is quickly explained, because in eleven second-round games S04 collected a mere seven points.
With seven points and a clearly negative goal difference of -19 (!) Schalke is the worst second-round team in the German Bundesliga. Eleven league games without a win also mean the longest losing streak in the German football upper house for 23 years.
Despite all the setbacks, coach David Wagner continues to express confidence. Following the 1-2 defeat at Fortuna Düsseldorf, Schneider Wagner even gave a job guarantee for the coming season. The club still holds on to Wagner. Results have to be delivered slowly but surely.
Schalke is currently at the bottom of all relevant second-half statistics. Few points, least goals, most goals. Above all, the goals against them (24 in number) can hardly be put into words. With countless blatant individual mistakes, the Wagner elf makes life difficult for itself.
Not even the lead against Düsseldorf ensured a little security in the game. In the current situation, betting on Schalke is not recommended. In this respect, there is no discernible value between Schalke and Werder Bremen when forecasting the home side in the Veltins Arena.
If SV Werder Bremen is also a member of the German Bundesliga in the 2020/21 season, the first English week after the restart will probably play a central role. Until the very beginning, Werder Bremen presented itself as a relegation. Simple goals, no rearing up and no passion characterized the game of the Kohfeldt charges.
Florian Kohfeldt was almost completely disassembled in the media and Werder legends were also unacceptable with the head coach. However, the players underlined several times that it is not because of the young head coach. Werder nevertheless failed to provide proof of this for a long time. Until the appearance in Breisgau at SC Freiburg.
Werder Bremen presented itself as exchanged. Uncertainty? Only felt in the final phase. Will and passion? Clearly noticeable over the entire playing time. The 1-0 win at Freiburg was only the second game without a goal this season and a sign of life at the right time.
The game against Champions League aspirant Borussia Mönchengladbach showed on Tuesday that this game was not a flash in the pan. A game developed at eye level, in which Bremen in the closing phase in the person of Davie Selke missed the 100% chance of the 1-0 pitifully.
Four points against the seventh and fourth are the best proof that Bremen came back impressively in the relegation battle. Bremen did not play like a relegation candidate, but still has seven finals in front of their chest. The relegation place is five points behind the Düsseldorf victory.
Basically, only victories for the penultimate table count. The chances against the troubled team from Gelsenkirchen are good after the two most recent performances. The current table position of both teams must be enjoyed with a little bit of caution.
