Wolfsburg vs Schalke 04 – Free Betting Tips & Predictions

Can Wolfsburg make home advantage count when they host newly-promoted Schalke 04 on Saturday? Read our top predictions for this weekend’s fixture below.

Wolfsburg to Win

Wolfsburg avoided the battering that many had anticipated at Bayern Munich last time out and though they did eventually lose the game, they would have extracted some confidence from a competitive performance. Back at the VOLKSWAGEN ARENA – where Die Wolfe have lost just twice in nine Bundesliga assignments – Wolfsburg could harness that self-belife to push for their first victory of the new campaign could be in the offing against Schalke 04 on Saturday. The host have won each of their last two home encounters with Schalke and a third triumph is on the cards here.

Both Teams to Score

Wolfsburg and Schalke 04 have looked off the pace defensively in the opening exchanges of the new season in Germany and with deficiencies at the back in both teams, we’re tipping both sides to concede on Saturday. The teams have shipped an alarmingly high nine goals between them after just two fixtures each (Wolfsburg 4, Schalke 5) and a first clean sheet of the campaign looks beyond both backlines this weekend.
