Schalke vs Wolfsburg predictions and betting tips for this Wednesday’s DFB Pokal fixture on 7th February with an outright pick and goals prediction included.
These two sides have decent pedigree in this cup competition but in recent years, they have struggled to reach the latter stages of the DFB Pokal. Schalke won the tournament back in the 2010/2011 season and are always strong at home and start as the favourites for this clash. The two teams drew 1-1 when they met earlier in the campaign with Divok Origi netting a late equaliser. Schalke slipped up against an improving Bremen side at the weekend and a number of their players continue to underachieve in the Bundesliga.
