Schalke 04 Köln betting prediction


Betting suggestion:

The most likely scenario for this game will be the existence of several goals. Unsurprisingly, we hope that the best chances for goals belong to Köln, as it has a superior squad than the opponent. On the other hand, Schalke 04 should disturb the visitors during the 90' of the game, since it needs to add the three points. Note that the two clubs have several defensive flaws. Taking into account these factors, risking in favor of goals in this game is a good option.
