FC Koln vs Schalke Prediction & Tips
Wednesday, at 18:30, a false air of Bundesliga will float on the lawn RheinEnergieStadion. Indeed, on the occasion of the second round of the German Cup, FC Koln will receive Schalke 04 in its enclosure. A second-class pensioner after his relegation last year, Cologne will have the opportunity to remember the good memories of the German elite, especially since the men of Markus Anfang are in great shape. Currently leaders of 2.Bundesliga, Simon Terodde and company have left on a good basis and will surely wish to continue on their beautiful dynamics in this DFB Pokal. All the opposite of Schalke, in short.
Only 15th in the Bundesliga, Amine Harit’s club is not in great shape, and should not rely too much on this national cup. Already engaged in the Champions League, and therefore in an operation back in the league, the protege of Domenico Tedesco have an important meeting to play Saturday against Hanover (virtual barrage), and should not use all their strength in the battle. From there to imagine a positive result for Cologne, there is only one step.
FC Koln have lost just 2 of 12 official matches this season.
For its part, Schalke 04 has not won since 3 consecutive games (Werder, Galatasaray and Leipzig).
Moreover, the players of the Gelsenkirchen club have not found the flaw on this black series.
Schalke has won just two of his eight official trips this season (Schweinfurt in the Cup, and Fortuna Düsseldorf, last in the Bundesliga).
Cologne have lost only once in their last 5 matches against Schalke 04.
Schalke will surely have his head elsewhere this Wednesday night on the lawn of Cologne. A real boon for the host team, who could well take the opportunity to continue his crazy series in progress. Let it be said, Cologne is back in shape, and it is not the bland players of Gelsenkirchen that will inflict a correction at home. The odds are gigantic: so we bet on the success of Cologne.
