Competition: Bundesliga
Market: Schalke to beat Wolfsburg
Odds: 23/20 @ Bet 365

While runaway league leaders Bayern Munich may march towards the Bundesliga title, there is still plenty to play for at both ends of the table. With Schalke in pole position to secure Champions League football at the Arena AufSchalke next season, on Saturday evening Schalke will travel to Wolfsburg who are involved in their own battle at the other end of the table.

For the hosts on Saturday, the former Bundesliga powerhouses have once again continued their dramatic fall from grace. After only avoiding relegation by a single place last season, Wolfsburg once again find themselves in a similar position. Currently sat 15th in the table, Bruno Labbadia’s side have only managed to pick up just four wins out of their 26 Bundesliga appearances this season. Only managing to score 28 goals so far this year, Wolfsburg have no one individual player who has more than six Bundesliga goals this season. While Wolfsburg may sit seven points adrift of the drop zone, they will feel they’re not out of the woods yet, the Green and Whites are now on a seven-match winless run, they have also lost four of their last five.

As for the visitors, Schalke’s return to the top of German football has been one of the more notable stories in the Bundesliga this year. While they may be 20 points adrift of runaway league leaders Bayern Munich, Schalke’s young boss Domenico Tedesco will be more than happy with taking second spot. While they may only sit a single point above Dortmund, Schalke are marching towards a return to the Champions League next year. Currently, on a four-match winning run, the Whites have also picked up wins over fellow top-four hopefuls Bayer Leverkusen and Hoffenheim.
