Can Schalke 04 finally bounce back and get some results again? That’s what the Royal Blues’ fans will ask themselves on Saturday when their team hosts Werder Bremen at the Veltins Arena. Let us preview this fixture for you in this football betting tips this weekend.
Crisis – that’s the word we can describe Schalke’s current situation. Since the end of the quarantine the Royal Blues lost three times in a row. Some expect the manager David Wagner to be sacked, but Schalke are still trusting him to turn things around. It’s going to be difficult, though.
During the week the Royal Blues conceded their 9th loss for the season. Schalke scored first against Fortuna Dusseldorf at the Merkur Spiel-Arena, but suffered a 1-2 defeat. The American midfielder Weston McKennie opened the score for the club from Gelsenkirchen, but until the end of the game Fortuna scored twice and won the game.
Suat Serdar is going to miss the rest of the season for Schalke 04, while Amine Harit is also sidelined.
Werder Bremen are going in the right direction right now. The club is still in the relegation zone, but in its last two matches Werder won four points out of six. This is a good way to progress. A win against Schalke on Saturday would be really important for the club which is still not given up on survival.
On Tuesday Werder Bremen hosted Borussia M’gladbach but only won a point with a 0-0 draw. The manager Florian Kohfeldt put the Japanese international Yuya Osako in the starting eleven, but the game ended without any goals scored.
In these football betting tips this weekend we believe that Werder Bremen are the team in a better mental state at the moment. Schalke 04 are the home team here, but without fans it doesn’t really mean anything.
