Koln vs Schalke
Koln host Schalke 4 rounds before the end of German Bundesliga.
Another Koln loss here will practically mean relegation and Schalke will be ready to put the last nail in their coffin. Home side are the weakest hosts in the league, although they got some good results in last home games. On the other hand Schalke are the third best visitors after Munich and Leverkusen, so last team with almost no chances to survive against very motivated Schalke which also want to keep their 2nd place chased aggressively by Borussia Dortmund. Schalke have 1 point advantage with a chance to make the gap four points once again.
Schalke play good against Koln and they perfectly know how to beat them, although they finished 2:2 in Gelsenkirchen during the first part of the season. Maybe that will also be kind of motivation, because it's not good to finish second only behind the German hegemons Bayern Munich and to get wrong twice against the last in the table. The biggest reason to bet on the visitors here is because of their elimination by Frankfurt in the cup. That was a huge blow on their ambitions to lift a trophy this season and I think it will anger them a lot. Also their schedule is not the easiest one because they can make mistakes in all of their matches till the end of the season, so practically they don't have the right to miss points in their easiest game.
Koln will be without Guirassy, Lehmann and Ozkan, while Schalke will miss Nastasic, who is suspended and Rahman Baba.
Easy or hard Schalke have to win here- max stake!
