Slow re-starters Schalke will play host to relegation-threatened Werder Bremen on Saturday afternoon in Bundesliga action.

The hosts have lost all three matches since the Bundesliga returned due to the coronavirus pandemic. Their slow start means they are now without a win from their previous 10 Bundesliga matches. Meanwhile, Werder Bremen have shown some signs of hope as they look to claw their way out of the relegation zone. They managed a draw and a win from their last two matches.

Schalke are priced at 7/5 to win the match by SkyBet and turn their horrid form around since the restart. The club’s hopes of Europa League football next season are slipping away after their poor start since the return. They are currently five points adrift from Wolfsburg and will hope they can finally find their groove this Saturday against a struggling team. Schalke often see plenty of possession, it’s their creativity in the final third that has been lacking.

In attack, youngster Rabbi Matondo has looked busy with his work-rate and lightning pace. He is priced at 7/2 to score anytime.

Werder Bremen are priced at 19/10 to win the match by SkyBet and claim a huge three points in their bid for survival. The struggling side will take some confidence from their recent performances, keeping back-to-back clean sheets for the first time since October 2018. They also have a very impressive away record this season with 16 points from 14 matches, and away sides seem to be playing much better in the behind closed doors format.

In attack, Bremen’s top goalscorer Milo Rashica is priced at 11/5 to score anytime.

Last time these two met, Schalke battled out a 2-1 victory away from home in a tight and tense match. 50 booking points were brandished and SkyBet are offering 5/4 for 50+ booking points to be shown again.

The match will be televised on BT Sport 1 HD and kicks off at 14:30 BST.

Prediction: Schalke 1-1 Werder Bremen

– Schalke will be determined to not suffer a fourth loss in a row and Bremen continue to struggle to flourish in attack.
