Our prediction for this Bundesliga match:
VELTINS-Arena will host Saturday’s football game between Schalke 04 and Wolfsburg. Schalke 04 have been struggling in the Bundesliga ever since they restarted the season, and, as a result, they missed out on a place in European competitions. Die Knappen are already with one eye on the 2020/21 campaign, and seeing that they have little to play for in the season finale, home win should not be considered.
Talented midfielder Can Bozdogan is sidelined through suspension. The Wolves, on the other hand, aim to keep their Europa League hope alive, and we predict that they will take advantage of the fact that the game will be played behind closed doors. Wolfsburg failed to impress in a 3-0 loss at Borussia M’gladbach, but they are definitely capable of beating the out-of-sorts Schalke in Gelsenkirchen. A man to keep an eye on in the away team will be experienced Dutch attacker Wout Weghorts.
Highlighted Player (Weston McKennie):
After starting his youth career at FC Dallas, Weston McKennie moved to Germany in the summer of 2016, signing a contract with Bundesliga side Schalke 04. The American footballer made his Bundesliga debut on May 20, 2017, coming as a substitute in the 77th minute of the match.
The talented midfielder scored his first goal in the German elite division on August 6, 2018 in a 2-0 win at Fortuna Dusseldorf.

Weston McKennie has two caps for the USA U20 team as well. His main position is central midfield, but he used as both defensive and attacking midfielder as well. The USA international was born in Fort Lewis, Washington on August 28, 1998. His preferred foot is right.
