Schalke vs Koln Prediction 19 December 2017

Tournament: DFB Pokal
Location: VELTINS-Arena, Gelsenkirchen
Match date: 19.12.2017 at 19:45

On December 19 2017 at 19:45 at the VELTINS-Arena in Gelsenkirchen the local Schalke are playing against their guests Koln in the upcoming regular game of the DFB Pokal Round of 16.

Despite the fact Schalke obviously slowed down lately and had three draws in the latest five games, they still have comparatively good results. Their 30 points gained in 17 matches already played let them stay on the second position in the standings of the German Bundesliga. We must also admit that Schalke won and drew in the latest nine matches and gained 18 points which is the best third result in the German Bundesliga. As for the Cup competition, Schalke have already played two matches in it. In those matches Schalke outplayed BFC Dynamo 0:2 and When Wiesbaden 1:3.

As for Koln, they are considered to be the main disappointment of the current season of the German Bundesliga, in fact. They looked really poor since the very beginning of the championship and their participation in the Europa League took most of their strength. The victory against Wolfsburg on December 16 was the first one in their 17 matches already played and it only let them gain 6 points. These results leave them on the last place in the table of the league. In the DFB Pokal Koln have already outplayed Leher with the devastating 0:5 score and Hertha 1:3.

In the games played between the teams during the last few seasons Koln won twice while Schalke only won twice. Of course, Chalke will be participation for the highest places in the Champions League zone in the table and only after that they will think about their cup competitions. Yet, it still seems to us that they are capable of making it to the next stage this time and outplay the outsiders of the league Koln.
