Today's Predictions for Schalke vs Werder Bremen

Schalke have lost three of their last four Bundesliga assignments ahead of their tussle with Werder Bremen on Saturday. Read our top Werder Bremen vs Freiburg predictions for this weekend’s fixture below.

Both Teams to Score

Schalke’s defence has been alarmingly leaky in recent weeks and the relegation candidates have shipped 11 goals in their last four Bundesliga fixtures alone. Werder Bremen will fancy their chances of breaching that brittle backline on Saturday, though both teams have notched in 100% of their last seven league games, and that record suggests a clean sheet for the visitors is unlikely. An open contest looks probable in this one and our first Schalke vs Werder Bremen recommends a stake on both teams to score with that in mind.

Marvin Ducksch to Score Anytime

Marvin Ducksch has really picked up the mantle in the absence of Werder’s leading marksman Niclas Fullkrug. The 29-year-old scored a superb hattrick last weekend in Bremen’s emphatic 4-2 win at Hertha Berlin, taking his tally for the campaign up to 11 in the process. Duksch should be brimming with confidence following his trio of strikes and he looks like a good option in the anytime goalscorer market again on Saturday.

Read all of the latest injury updates, Schalke vs Werder Bremen lineups and team news for Saturday’s Bundesliga battle below. If you’re looking for more of the best football betting tips today, make sure to follow the link.

Schalke

Schalke have a long list of absentees which includes Cedric Brunner, Soichiro Kozuki, Eder Balanta, Maya Yoshida, Justin Heekeren, Ralf Fahrmann and Tim Starke while Sebastian Polter remains a long-term absentee. Tom Krauß is back from suspension however, which is a boost.

Predicted Lineup for Schalke: Schwolow – Matriciani, Jenz, Kaminski, Uronen  – Kral, Latza, Karaman, Drexler, Bulter, Terrode

Werder Bremen

Werder striker and leading scorer Niclas Füllkrug has a calf injury that should keep him out for another few weeks, while Felix Agu and Leonardo Bittencourt are also sidelined. Milos Vejkovic has a knock at the back though he should recover in time to feature.

Predicted Lineup for Werder Bremen: Pavlenka – Stark, Vejkovic, Friedl – Weiser, Groß, Schmid, Stage, Jung – Ducksch, Philipp

Player to Watch – Anthony Jung

Anthony Jung has been a potent chance-creator from his left wing-back berth for Werder Bremen this season and the 31-year-old grabbed his fifth assist of the campaign when he set up a goal against Hertha Berlin last weekend. Jung has chipped in with seven goal contributions (2G, 5A) overall this term and his pinpoint delivery could be a feature of Saturday’s game.
