Only five years ago, Arminia Bielefeld caused a sensation last time in the DFB Pokal. At that time as a third division, the former Bundesliga club in turn beat Hertha BSC, Werder Bremen and Borussia Mönchengladbach to advance to the semi-finals.
Today’s Betting Tips Bielefeld vs Schalke
Meanwhile, the Arminia is again a league higher active and may there as a current runner-up even dream of returning to the Beletage of German football. Before that happens, however, a good run should be started again in the Cup, when in the second round with FC Schalke 04 a five-time cup winner will visit the Bielefelder Alm in the SchücoArena.
It is Bielefeld against Schalke in the odds of bookmakers because of the league difference, of course, the clear outsider. No chance the Blues go but certainly not in this duel, especially since the Schalke in October without compulsory game victory.
In addition, the Gelsenkirchener last even in both games after the international break without own goal remained what Bielefeld against Schalke for the prediction is quite relevant. After all, the Arminia have their strength just on the defensive, which is why Royal Blue should have a tough time breaking through the losing streak in the other penalty areas.
We see the most promising in a game that is possibly decided by a golden goal and potentially even in extra time, a goal bet at regular time. Therefore, we recommend to place a tip against Bielefeld at under 2.5 goals in the regular season at Bielefeld.
Bielefeld – Statistics & Current Form
In December 2018, Uwe Neuhaus took over the coaching office of former Bundesliga club Arminia Bielefeld in a highly precarious position. Barely half a year later, he finished with the Ostwestfalen an overall positive season in seventh place in the table. And just under half a year later, the black and white blue are surprisingly on eleven out of 34 league games completed on a direct promotion space.
There was only one defeat for the club, which did the trick in the summer, on the one hand all the key players that you wanted to keep to be able to actually bind, while also for really small money players could be brought that are so far perfect the team of Uwe Neuhaus inserted – above all Jens Härtel, who played ten games and is with five assists the top-donor of the Ostwestfalen.
“The starting position was positive for us. The longer the game lasts at the score of 0: 0, we must not be nervous, but rather had to be nervous Dynamo. Of course we also played a bit with it. The team has done so confidently and cleverly and therefore we are very satisfied. ” – Uwe Neuhaus at the sports show
Moreover, it will be clear to all those responsible that Schalke 04 will only have a strong defensive position. Positive: The armies bring all three components with them, in order to be successful on this path. First: Already against Dresden played the Neuhaus-Elf, as the coach admitted later in the sports show, with the fact that the opponent would be nervous with increasing playing time at the score of 0: 0 earlier – something that on the Schalke 100% should also apply.
Secondly: Arminia Bielefeld has lost only one competitive match in the 2019/20 season, even defeating teams like Hannover 96 or scoring at home against Hamburger SV. And thirdly: The Ostwestfalen conceded only twelve goals in eleven league games, but have in the game forward with Fabian Klos and Andreas Voglsammer two ice-cold enforcers who need little chance to shoot their team in front.
That Bielefeld against Schalke in the odds of bookmakers also as an outsider in this game is, from a psychological point of view, not to be despised. So virtually no pressure on the team, especially since Uwe Neuhaus recently stressed that the focus is of course exclusively on the championship. Overall, some ingredients that speak for a cup surprise.
Expected formation of Bielefeld:
➦ Ortega – Hartherz – Nilsson – Pieper – Brunner – Hartel – Prietl – Yabo – Voglsammer – Chauss – Klos

Schalke – Statistics & Current Form
Also for the FC Schalke 04, the interim conclusion is quite positive. Although the Royal Blues scored the potential lead at home against 1. FC Köln (1-1 draw) at home on Matchday 7, which will undoubtedly plague many players, the total of 15 points scored in the first nine games is definitely over let see. Also, because the Gelsenkirchen already played against teams such as Bayern, Gladbach, Leipzig and Dortmund.
Finally, the miners were still after a strong start to the season something off the track. Only two points from the last three games ensured that the gap to the top of the table has grown to four points. Judging by the fact that just a good quarter of the 2019/20 season is completed, the Gelsenkirchenern are still all open gates.
“We take a lot of good things out of the game, but not the best, the three points. But this time it was simply bad luck. ” – David Wagner at Süddeutsche Zeitung
Not undeserved on Saturday would have been the victory in Revierderby against archrival Borussia Dortmund. Two posts and a missed whistle on a Hazard handball – although the DFB announced the day after that a VAR intervention would not have been correct – ultimately prevented the derby win. Again, no victory in the hitherto winless October, which also speaks at Bielefeld against Schalke against tip 2.
Of course, the Gelsenkirchen are the favorite in this game in the formidable second division. Nevertheless, a lot can happen in the match – especially if the offensive department of David Wagner’s team continues to stall.
14 goals from nine games in the Bundesliga are not overly scary per se. What relativizes this value, however, is the participation of the Schalke striker. Only Ahmed Kutucu scored a goal in seven games. The other classic strikers Guido Burgstaller (nine appearances – 801 minutes on the pitch), Mark Uth (four appearances – played 175 minutes) and Fabian Reese (a total of 16 minutes) are all still completely without scoring.
No wonder that David Wagner repeatedly emphasized how much he was reluctant to sell Breel Embolo, which he said he was most looking forward to. All the more important that the Sturmabteilung, who gets the chance in the DFB Cup, now recovers in the duel with a second division a little of the lost confidence.
Meanwhile, two other points are positive. First, Weston McKennie is fit for his muscular problems that cost him the turf derby. And secondly, the Schalke defense is very good and leaves very little, even with only nine goals from nine league games.
Expected formation of Schalke:
➦ Nübel – Oczipka – Sané – Stambouli – Kenny – Mascarell – McKennie – Serdar – Harit – Matondo – Burgstaller
Last matches of Schalke:
⚽️ 26.10.2019 – Schalke Vs. Dortmund 0: 0 (Bundesliga)
⚽️ 20.10.2019 – TSG Hoffenheim Vs. Schalke 2: 0 (Bundesliga)
⚽️ 05.10.2019 – Schalke Vs. Cologne 1: 1 (Bundesliga)
