Team News

Schalke : Schalke are really in great form under Domenico Tedesco, easily got a 2-0 win over Mainz in the Bundesliga and then cruised past away to Wehen Wiesbaden 3-1 in the DFB POKAL on Tuesday. Now the question is can they continue their hot form against Wolfsburg? Stats, Current form and Head to Head results show they can. Schalke are handsomely placed in 5th position of the table with 16 points from 9 MatchDays with a GD of +3, and things are also likely to get better. Team news is Weston McKennie is back from injury and may also get the nod as Nabil Bentaleb (Hip) and Leon Goretzka (Muscle) both are doubt’s for the clash. Pablo Insua, Matija Nastasic remain out with injuries.

Possible line up Schalke (3-4-3) – Fährmann; Stambouli, Naldo, Kehrer; Caligiuri, Meyer, McKennie, Oczipka; Burgstaller, Konoplyanka, Harit.

Wolfsburg : Wolfsburg may not be the best in winning matches but they can give you a tough time on the field surely. Just like they did against Bundesliga big boys Bayern and Hoffenheim (drew against both of them). Though they need to start winning as well, placed in 14th position with 9 points in the bag with a GD of -3, this can’t be a good sign for the Wolves. Though things were worse under Andreas Jonker than Martin Schmidt, he’s slowly and steadily trying to give a shape to the Wolfsburg side. Team news is Jeffrey Bruma, Vierinha, Ignacio Camacho and Sebastian Jung are doubt’s for the fixture with injuries. Mario Gomez is fit alongwith John Anthony Brooks and are likely to get some time on the field.

Possible line up Wolfsburg (4-2-3-1) – Casteels; Verhaegh, Tisserand, Uduokhai, Itter; Guilavogui, Arnold; Blaszczykowski, Didavi, Malli; Gomez
