BT Sport; Bein Sports
Action from Wolfsburg on sunday as the second placed side host a Schalke team that have failed to win in their last four outings. Wolfsburg got hammered on thursday night against a good Napoli team and they will want to make ammense to their fans on Sunday if possible. The Wolfsburg offence really struggled thursday night for the first real time this season and De Bruyne, Dost and company will want to ensure that doesnt happene again on Sunday.
Schalke while failing to win in four have only lost one of those games. Roberto Di mateo's side are thirteen points from a Champions League spot and probably too far back. With the experienced and excellent Huntelaar up front with Choupu Moting there is enough attackign talent to cause some realy problems for a Wolsburg back line that have given up chances all season. Schalke have been set up to be defensive and this is the tactics that seen Roberto Di Mateo win the Champions League with Chelsea. It will take time but Di Mateo if he gets time can turn Schalke into a contender.
While this is a really tough one to handicap I do think that Wolfsburg are deserved favourites, but with Wolfsburg's defence in disarray and giving up some many chances I am going to take both teams to score. With the quality of Huntelaar and Choupu Moting up front I think Schalke will definitely find the net and may even pull off a shock here.
