Market: Wolfsburg win
Odds: 5/2 @ Bet 365
Enjoying by their brightest form of the season, Wolfsburg will travel to a struggling Schalke on Sunday afternoon.
Starting with Domenico Tedesco’s Schalke side, while Sunday’s hosts may have secured a second-place finish in the Bundesliga last season, it has been a woeful campaign for the Blues this time around. Despite capturing a much-needed 3-1 win over relegation contenders Stuttgart last weekend, the Miners have failed to win any of their other previous four league matchups. Tedesco will also be growing concerned by Schalke’s recent performances at the VELTINS-Arena. Suffering back to back home defeats against Borrusia Dortmund and Bayer Leverkusen, the hosts also lost the reverse fixture 2-1 back in August.
As for the visitors, in stark contrast to Schalke, things couldn’t be going any better for Bruno Labbadia’s men. Coming off the back of a 3-2 win away at Augsburg in their last Bundesliga appearance, the Wolves are unbeaten in their last six league outings, a run that stems back to the start of November. With the chance to jump into the Champions League positions for the first time, Wolfsburg have also won their last three matches away from the Volkswagen Arena. Given the Greens stellar showings entering 2019, we’re backing the visitors to come away with the three points on Sunday.
