Werder Bremen vs Schalke Prediction & Betting tips
All football Germany will be looking forward to Domenico Tedesco on Friday evening. The 33-year-old German-Italian is facing FC Schalke 04 before his next personal final and must deliver after the embarrassing appearance against Dusseldorf from the previous week, if he wants to take also next weekend on the coaching bench of the Knappen place. Whether it is appropriate after the recent performances of the Gelsenkirchener, however, between Werder Bremen and Schalke to give a tip on the relegation threatened guest, may be doubted. The unrest in the club does not necessarily have a positive effect on the critics, which is why under normal circumstances it is unlikely that last year’s vice-champion suddenly presents himself from a completely different side.
From the perspective of the Werderaner the home game against S04 could thus come exactly at the right time, because although the team of coach Florian Kohfeldt in the second half of the season is still unbeaten, Satisfaction set only rarely. The last three Bundesliga games all ended in a draw, which is why the Hanseaten have missed for the time being to make the connection to the international places. Because the performances were still solid, beat in the match Werder Bremen against Schalke, the odds still in favor of the home side. Does Tedesco really have to say goodbye this time or is the grace period of the “Stehaufmännchen” in the Ruhr area extended?
It has become quiet at SV Werder Bremen. The best indication for this is the fact that during the week the announcement that Max Kruse’s motorsport team will change the race series was almost the most spectacular. The especially rare commodity “Ruhe” in the daily business football may be signs of satisfaction for many clubs, but at the club from the Weser one would not resist at the moment against a bit more excitement. Three times in a row, the Kohfeldt-Elf had to settle for a 1-1 draw last. In Wolfsburg, at home against VfB Stuttgart and Hertha BSC, it was only enough for one point, although the performances shown were anything but bad for long stretches. As in the first round, but the shortcoming remains the same: the Werderaner simply rewarded for the effort involved and are – subjectively – therefore behind in the ranking as they deserve it. In the coming weeks and months, it will be difficult for the North Germans in the coming weeks, six points behind the sixth-placed, but still to contemplate the European business, especially since the power density in the middle of the table is quite narrow.
To keep alive at least the dream of returning to Europe, a home win on Friday night is the beginning of the 25th matchday no alternative. Between Werder Bremen and Schalke, a prediction seems to be obvious to the hosts, especially as the Green-Whites – along with Eintracht Frankfurt – are the only Bundesliga team that did not concede defeat in 2019. The balance of two successes and five draws is still expandable.
The yield from home scenery is also at best average with four wins, five draws and three failures. Of particular importance is that the Kohfeldt-Elf against the miners is in the lead, because in eight of eleven cases, in which the SVW was in the meantime front, he left after the final whistle the place as a winner (three draws). In addition, it would be very important for the self-confidence and the mood in the ranks, should start from the beginning, everything in the direction of the home team. Due to the recent form crunch of the miners, promises between Werder Bremen and Schalke the tip that Max Kruse and Co. achieve the first goal and wins the table ten, an exciting value. Langkamp, Osako, Harnik and Johansson are injured due to injury. For center-back Langkamp, Veljkovic will play right from the start. Nuri Sahin could be a creative option for the starting XI against a defensive opponent.
The FC Schalke 04 undoubtedly has turbulent days behind it. After the embarrassing appearance at 0: 4 against home crowd against Dusseldorf pointed much, as if Domenico Tedesco prematurely be released from his duties, but it took until Tuesday, before with ex-Leipzig Jochen Schneider, the new sports director as successor to Christian Heidel was officially presented. Since the “new strong man” in Gelsenkirchen probably did not want to throw out the coach as a first official act, he more or less extended the reprieve for the German-Italian for another game. Schneider already revealed that he is not a friend of lip-service and you have to see an increase in the next few games, so that there may still be a future for Tedesco on Schalke. However, the appropriate response on Friday night in the away game on the Weser seems unlikely, after the coach after the mentioned gossip against the climber from the Rhineland already declared “dead” and accused her indirectly lack of character. If we were to assume for many other clubs or teams that such an oath of disclosure leads to a “now-first-right attitude”, it is not unrealistic that the pointer will turn even further to the detriment of the miners. The fact that during the week a list of twelve players (mostly from the regular team), who should leave the club in the summer, made the round, should not necessarily provide for a new “we-feeling”. The omens are catastrophic, so in the match Werder Bremen against Schalke the forecast must inevitably turn out to be the hosts.
Admittedly statistics and numbers play only a minor role in such a phase, yet the persistent negative series of six straight matches (two draws, four defeats) is symbolic of the downward spiral. Only seven times were the Royal Blues in the current season in the lead. Away, the Gelsenkirchen could only decide two games for themselves and mark in a total of twelve games just as many goals. A backlog was in the recent past usually a premature death blow for the mentally troubled and unsettled Tedesco protégés.
In this respect, between Werder Bremen and Schalke, the odds are that the Werderaner scored the first goal and three points a lucrative investment. In terms of personnel, Tedesco in his “begging talk” about the post at the board indicated that in the future he would only bet on mentality players. This could mean that the offensive relief is completely lost and the relegation candidate is solely trying to come through tough tackles to success. The situation remains hopeless in our eyes anyway. Suat Serdar is still missing; Schöpf must fit due to injury. Former top performers such as Bentaleb, Konoplyanka, Harit or Embolo play for the time being hardly a role. Even Uth or Sane, who had previously always been on the pitch from the start, could be replaced by qualitatively weaker but strong-willed professionals.
