Schalke 04 welcomes Koln at the Veltins-Arena in a game from the 7th round
Schalke 04 welcomes Koln at the Veltins-Arena in a game from the 7th round of the Bundesliga. We are going to take a look at this match in our soccer matches tomorrow.
It seems that Schalke 04 are finding themselves again after a very dissapointing previous season. In the summer the American tactician David Wagner was appointed as a manager, which brought an instant improvement in the team.
Right now the Royal Blues are 4th in the standings with 13 points won. Schalke are really close to the top, because the distance between them and the leader Bayern Munich is just one point. Returning to the Top 4 and qualifying again for the Champions League is going to be Schalke’s main goal this season.
At this moment the Royal Blues are enjoying a run of four consecutive wins in the Bundesliga, being the team in the best form in the league right now. In their last game Wagner’s boys visited RB Leipzig at the Red Bull Arena and celebrated a 3-1 win. Salif Sane, Amine Harit from a penalty kick and Rabbi Matondo scored for the visitors. It was a great game for the club from Gelsenkirchen.
Koln returned to the Bundesliga, but once again they are struggling, being in the relegation zone with only three points won so far. Clearly Koln are going once again to fight for surviva in the elite division. Achim Belerlorzer’s team won just once so far in the league – against Freiburg, but in every other one of their five matches they suffered defeats.
In the previous round Koln hosted Hertha BSC and suffered a disastrious 0-4 defeat at the RheinEnergieStadion. The hosts’ task was really made complicated during the first half, when the Spanish centre back Jorge Mere was sent off.
What can we really say in our our soccer matches tomorrow? Based on these two teams performance so far, Schalke 04 are more than obvious favourite against Koln, especially at the Veltins Arena. We believe that the Royal Blues won’t make a mistake here.
