Schalke 04 vs VfL Wolfsburg Preview

Schalke 04 vs VfL Wolfsburg

Competition – DFB Pokal

Stadium – Veltins-Arena

Date: 7th February 2018

Kick-off time – 19:45 GMT

Schalke welcome Wolfsburg to their home in this German Cup quarter final as they look to end this season with a trophy.

They defeated Koln in a tightly contested match in the last round to reach the quarters and they will be looking to do the same against their in-form visitors here.

They lost their last match 1-2 at home to Werder Bremen – a disappointing result that followed a good 0-2 away win at Stuttgart.

This is their chance to redeem themselves in front of their home fans again.

They face Bayern Munich in the league next and a win here would give them a much needed confidence boost ahead of that game.

Wolfsburg saw out Nurnberg in the third round to reach the quarter finals and they come into this game with some inconsistent form on their side.

They have 2 wins and 2 losses from their last 6 competitive games.

They managed to keep three clean sheets in those games while scoring 6 goals in total.

They are unbeaten in their last 2 games prior to this match and they will be looking to build some momentum with another win here.

Wolfsburg have not won any of their last four head-to-head meetings, losing 3 and drawing on a single occasion.
