Cologne v Schalke Betting Tips Explained

Have Schalke left it too late to make a charge for a top-six finish, earning a place in Europe next season? Markus Weinzierl’s side are eight points off the top six heading into this latest round of fixtures in Germany’s top flight, but they are a team that has found their form in the last few weeks.

Schalke have followed up the very creditable draw at Bayern Munich with three straight wins in all competitions, and having taken four points from their last two Bundesliga outings – against teams in the top six – they are just two points off the top half of the table heading into the weekend. They will be determined to make it four-in-a-row on Sunday – but can they?

Cologne are currently seventh in the standings, but they are just one point off the top six following last weekend’s defeat at Freiburg. That defeat halted a six-match unbeaten in the league and they Peter Stoger will be hoping they can issue an immediate response when they host Schalke on Sunday. So will they? I am not expecting back-to-back defeats, but a draw looks a real possibility here. Schalke are in fantastic form right now, but Cologne have not lost at home this season.

This is likely to be a low-scoring affair too. Cologne have done a fantastic job at the back this season, with only league leaders Bayern Munich conceding less goals in the Bundesliga. And when it comes to home form, no side has conceded less goals than Stoger’s boys. That rock-solid defence should ensure we do not see many goals in this one – with less than three total goals looking rather likely.
