      Schalke vs Werder Bremen Predictions

      Schalke got a win in their final game in the Bundesliga before the winter break, which was a relief considering they lost to Augsburg the weekend before. Getting into the winter break on the back of a win is important.

      This was Schalke’s 4th win in their last six competitive matches, with only their defeat to Augsburg marring their unbeaten record.

      This purple patch ended their disappointing run of form prior to this in which they failed to win seven matches in a row.

      This poor run of form has harmed their position in the Bundesliga, but they are still in the European qualification positions. They sit in 6th position in the league with 27 points from their first 17 matches, just a point above Wolfsburg and two points adrift of the top four.

      Werder Bremen aren’t in such a favourable position. They occupy the Bundesliga’s relegation playoff position with a return of just 15 points from 17 matches.

      Werder Bremen went into the winter break on the back of a defeat, with that 2-1 loss to Eintracht Frankfurt making it one win, two draws, and four defeats from their last seven matches in all competitions.

      Their sole win came in the DFB Pokal, and in the Bundesliga they haven’t won since the start of November.

      Schalke have the upper hand on Werder Bremen in terms of recent history between the two as well. They haven’t lost to Werder Bremen since 2010, with eight of their 11 meetings since then ending in victory for Schalke.

      I just can’t look beyond Schalke for this match. They finished the first half of the season in good form and have an excellent recent record against Werder Bremen as well as the home advantage on Sunday. This makes odds of 4/6 for a Schalke win look very attractive, so I’m going for that along with a 2-0 correct score prediction at 8/1.
