Wolfsburg takes Schalke 04 at the "Volkswagen Arena" in a meeting of the third round of the German Bundesliga. Chief Judge of the match will be Felix Brych. The odds for the game via sport predictions offered by the leading bookmaker bet365 are as follows: 2.00 for a home win, with a draw at 3.80 and 3.50 for the victory of the guests. The two teams come into this derby in absolutely equal positions in the standings, with 4 points collected after two rounds.
Wolfsburg failed to win its visit to Koln a week ago, and finished 1:1. Wolves will have to defend the second place from last year`s campaign and soon will start the challenge called the Champions League. The big question for the manager Dieter Hecking is whether he will be able to keep the best star of his composition - Kevin De Bruyne, who continues to be linked with a multi-million transfer to Manchester City. If the transfer happens, the Wolves will give a higher chance on their new signing Max Kruse. Dieter Heking has no reason to make changes in his composition. Wolfsburg will rely on the same squad as in the visit to Koln. Bas Dost will lead the attack of the wolves. Andre Schurrle is with trauma and remains out of the group.
Schalke made a surprising draw - 1: 1 at home against Darmstadt. The Royal Blues wiped out the best impressions from their great start - the victory with 3:0 away to Werder Bremen. The new coach Andre Breitenreiter will have a difficult task to change the game via sport predictions of Schalke at the visits. The team lost five of their last nine visits, and now arrives at one of the most hostile stadiums in Germany. The finalist of the Champions League - Juventus has serious appetite for Julian Draxler and he might go to Italy. However, the national youth of Germany travelled with the team of Wolfsburg and is expected to start the match. Junior Caicara will keep his place at the right-back and in attack, Breitenreiter again will rely on the duo Franco Di Santo and Klaas-Jan Huntelaar.
Besides the abovementioned bad shape of Schalke as visitors, we must add the fact that Wolfsburg plays great at home and during the whole past season has no any defeat at the "Volkswagen Arena". That is why we believe that "the wolves" will win this derby. Here is Wolfsburg`s form from their latest matches: 16.8. Eintracht Frankfurt (2:1), 22.8. Koln (1:1).
