Schalke 04 vs Stuttgart – Bundesliga.
Veltins Arena, Gelsenkirchen – 21 February, 16:30.
Match Preview and Betting Tips.
J.Kramny have proven himself as great solution for Stuttgart, as we can see great performances and results of this team since he was appointed. They are finally away from the bottom part of Bundesliga table, place where they have been for literally last two years. They are on very good streak as they are traveling to Gelsenkirchen to face Schalke 04. I am expecting very interesting match due to fierce rivalry and previous matches between these two squads. The last one was one heavy battle with 12 yellow cards and 1 – 0 win for Schalke, thanks to L.Sane’s goal. Hosts are slight favorites as expected with 11/10 odds, while the chances for The Beatles are illustrated the best in 21/10 odds.
Even though they were underdogs with really high chances to lose their Europa League first leg match against Shakhtar, Schalke have held their ground. That match ended as goalless draw but the main question is how tired are they after very long trip to Ukraine. They are currently on 5th position on Bundesliga table, not far away from position number three. So far their Bundesliga record in 2016 is two victories and two losses, which definitely could have been better. They were able to beat Darmstadt and Wolfsburg without conceding a goal. Klas Jan Huntelaar seems pretty fit and in shape to score another goal this weekend.
If we take only last five Bundesliga matches into consideration, Stuttgart would be table leaders. They have won all their last five meetings against very respectable opponents like Wolfsburg, Hertha, Hamburg. One of their core engines this season is young Serbian winger Filip Kostic, who is both scoring and assisting very often. There are even rumors of Tottenham Hotspur’s interest in this player, but nothing has been confirmed yet.
