Relegation candidates Schalke 04 will attempt to record their third win in the Bundesliga this season when they take on Cologne, who are just six points clear of the relegation zone, on Sunday afternoon.

The hosts are coming off three defeats in the league, in which they conceded a total of ten goals. As a result of this negative streak, Thomas Reis' men are now seven points off safety, which means they need to start picking up points before it's too late. Considering that the only two wins they've had so far this season have come in this stadium, it wouldn't be a surprise if they managed to take something from this game.

Meanwhile, Cologne went into the World Cup break on a streak of five winless league games, but have been playing like a different team since the start of the new year. After the 7-1 win over Werder and the 1-1 draw against record champions Bayern Munich, the mood in Steffen Baumgart's camp has improved considerably.

Schalke 04 vs FC Koln Betting Tips: Away win

Considering the current form of the visitors and the fact that they also have a good record in the direct meetings of these two teams, they go into this match as favorites.

And given the problems of the hosts in defense, only one clean sheet in the last fourteen league games, we think that they will not be able to avoid what would be their thirteen league defeat of the season.

With this game coming just a few days after the humiliating 6-1 defeat against RB Leipzig, Thomas Reis will make major changes to his Schalke 04 squad.

Simon Terodde, Mehmet-Can Aydın and Tobias Mohr are among those who could benefit from this change for the royal blues, who will be without Sebastian Polter, Sepp van den Berg, Justin Heekeren, Niklas Tauer, Alex Kral and Rodrigo Zalazar due to injuries.
