The cup knows its own laws. This now almost exhausted formula is always used when an explanation is needed to work up the retirement of a favorite against a supposed outsider. On Tuesday and Wednesday it is time again! The quarter-finals in the DFB Cup 2019 goes over the stage and three of the eight remaining teams come from the second division. Probably the most interesting and most notable match in the round of the last eight thus rises in the Veltins Arena. Schalke meets Werder Bremen. The odds of the bookmakers are likely to cause one or the other puzzled face, because in fact it is the Royal Blues, which are better chances to be added to the semi-finals.
Today’s Betting Tips Schalke vs Werder Bremen
Sporty this assessment of the bookmakers is only partially comprehensible, since the guests of the Weser in the calendar year 2019 are still unbeaten and recently presented in the Bundesliga in brilliant form. The same can not even be said of the Gelsenkirchenern in the beginning. Even the narrow 1-0 win in Hanover last Sunday should rather be classified in the category “happy”. Only in early March, the teams met in the league. At that time, the Green-Whites won 4-2 against their home crowd and found gaps against the holey defenses of the Ruhr potties again and again to get dangerously close to the goal. Although Huub Stevens has brought back some stability, there is still a lack of self-confidence to overturn the proverbial Bock in the cup. For this reason, a prediction towards the Kohfeldt-Elf is definitely to be preferred between Schalke and Werder Bremen.
Schalke – Statistics & Current Form
The growler from Kerkrade struck again. If there was a statistic showing the final result teams with Huub Stevens as coach most often achieved, the 1-0 victory would certainly be high on the list. Last Sunday it was time again. After a good two weeks in office and two defeats at home against RB Leipzig (0: 1) and in a friendly match during the international break against Sevilla (0: 2), the experienced Dutchman led his heart club to an elementary important triple in the relegation crime in Hannover. The Bavarians did not convince footballers, but in the end they only counted the points in the fight for survival. The two match winners on the side of the Champions League quarter-finalists were the scorer to the 1-0 winner, Suat Serdar, as well as goalkeeper Alexander Nübel, which destroyed numerous good chances of bullets of Lower Saxony and his club so the much needed sense of achievement held on. Whether the bottom line performance, however, is sufficient to on Tuesday evening in a duel Schalke vs Werder Bremen to dare a tip on the home side, may be strongly doubted.
In a way, one hopes in Gelsenkirchen that the frustration in the Bundesliga of cup euphoria gives way. The goal of the blue-white, the last 2011 the German club trophy were allowed to stretch in the air, it must be to reach the finals and where possible to get the title. It would be the only remaining opportunity to be represented internationally next year.
“In our situation you have no ease, there must be fighting. That was only one victory, nothing more, nothing less. ” – Huub Stevens after the 1: 0 against Hannover
However, even the quarter-finals in front of their own fans could turn out to be an insurmountable hurdle, especially with the Bremen an opponent in the Veltins Arena comes, the only bursting with self-confidence. Statistically, there is also little positive to note: S04 did not even get half as many points in the ten previous rounds than the Green-Whites. In fact, there were eight defeats in twelve competitive games in 2019 (two wins, two draws). The last home success dates from January 20 (2: 1 against Wolfsburg). It was followed by four winless Bundesliga games in front of their own fans, in which the harmless offensive of the Royal Blues even without a own goal remained. To draw the confidence fully from the personality of Huub Stevens and the return after all returned passion, is in our eyes too little to Schalke against Werder Bremen, the lower odds on the still unsettled tables-14. to justify the Bundesliga.
The serious failures of potential leaders such as Weston McKennie and Daniel Caligiuri make the task by no means easier. Ralf Fährmann, Nabil Bentaleb and Alessandro Schöpf are also injured.
Expected formation of Schalke:
↪ Nübel – Stambouli, S. Sané, Nastasic – Mascarell – J. Bruma, Oczipka – S. Serdar, Rudy – Embolo, Uth

Werder Bremen – Statistics & Current Form
At the moment it’s just fun to watch Werder Bremen playing football. Refreshing, fast, technically savvy and extremely strong-willed. These attributes characterize the SV of the Weser in the calendar year 2019. So far, the Green-Whites have played ten competitive matches in the second half of the season and have not lost their place as losers. While the team of the newly crowned coach of the year, Florian Kohfeldt, had to settle for a total of five points in their first seven matches, the Hanseatic League recently celebrated three Bundesliga victories in a row. Both in 4: 2 at home against Schalke and in 3: 1 in Leverkusen and 3: 1 at the weekend against Mainz 05, the North Germans had to survive difficult phases, but usually the right answer ready. Led by a very formidable Max Kruse, Bremen improved to sixth place in the classification thanks to a better goal-scoring record and is able to dream his head high of returning to international business. However, anyone who believes that the modern Werderans will be giving away the DFB Pokal in order to fully concentrate on the league will be able to refrain on Tuesday evening.
The well-rehearsed Kohfeldt troupe, which usually has to cope with only minor changes in the starting line-up from week to week, is bursting with self-confidence and should be in a similar condition as, for example, last in Leverkusen a tough touchstone for Huub Stevens and his Schalke. Incidentally, the former German champions have been causing quite a stir since the beginning of the season, as the SVW – in addition to Paris St. Germain in France – is the only club from the top European leagues to have scored at least one goal in all previous league matches. The yield in the DFB Cup is also considerable, because if you include the extra time from the round of 16 at Borussia Dortmund, the Bremen are by far the gunners in the cup competition. Overall, Kruse, Rashica, Pizarro and Co. are at 14 goals. The 6: 1 kick-off in Worms was followed by a 5: 1 in Flensburg as well as the surprising progress on penalties in Signal Iduna Park. Is the second Ruhrpottclub due on Tuesday evening? Given the persistent form high and the fact that the team of Coach Kohfeldt won both direct duels in the Bundesliga with two goals difference, it is little wonder that between Schalke and Werder Bremen our prediction is aimed at a semi-final entry of the guests.
The young football teacher, who is predicted a great future, has personal problems in terms of personal problems. As things stand, all players are ready for action. Only behind Niklas Moisander and Phillip Bargfrede are smaller question marks. We assume that the 36-year-old will use his individual 3-3-1-2 system, in which Max Kruse, Milot Rashica, Maxi Eggestein and Davy Klaassen flourish.
Expected formation of Werder Bremen:
↪ Pavlenka – Veljkovic, Langkamp, Moisander – Gebre Selassie, Sahin, Augustinsson – M. Eggestein, Klaassen – M. Kruse – Rashica
