Our prediction for this Bundesliga 2 match:
Following a 1-0 loss to Holstein Kiel, Schalke 04 will look to give fans something to cheer about when they take on Wehen in the 2. Bundesliga round 22. Die Knappen are still sitting in the danger zone, but they are surely capable of beating Wehen in front of home fans. Tobias Mohr is pushing for a start, while fellow midfielder Derry John Murkin serves a one-game ban due to the accumulation of yellow cards. All Brandon Soppy, Assan Ouedraogo, and Leo Greiml are out of contention with injuries.
Wehen, on the other hand, are undefeated in the previous three league matches. Markus Kauczinski’s men are undefeated in the previous three league matches, but we predict that Schalke are going to put an end to this positive trend. Ivan Prtajin serves a one-game ban, while all John Iredale, Nick Batzner, Martin Angha, and Keanan Bennetts are out of contention with injuries.
