The competition is the lifeline to prevent the 2018/2019 season from being stamped as a total failure for Schalke. After reaching the runner-up of the Bundesliga in the previous edition, the team makes a disastrous trajectory in the tournament.He spent much of the fight fighting relegation. On Sunday, March 31, he got some relief. As a visitor, he scored 1-0 at Hannover, a direct rival in that battle, in a match that was part of the schedule of the twenty-seventh round, ending a fast of successes that reached nine games (one draw and eight losses) and included the vexatious elimination in the Champions League with a 7-0 win over Manchester City.The win at Hannover led Schalke to 26 points (seven wins, five draws and 15 losses), beating Augsburg to 14th place and leading six points against Stuttgart, sixteenth and first place team in the sticking region.As principal, however, his performance is a team of Z3. It is the second worst in the ranking of this question of the Bundesliga. Of the 39 points he played at Veltins Arena, he won only 13 (four wins, one draw and eight losses), scoring 13 goals and conceding 21.In this scenario of almost scorched earth, the German Cup is the exception. Schalke made their debut against Schweinfurt with a 2-0 win at home. It had serious difficulties against the Colony, demoted to Second Division last season, in the stage two, again acting like visitor. After a 1-1 draw in regular time and no goals in extra time, he got the better of the penalty shootout. In the first home game, he thrashed Fortuna Dusseldorf 4-1.
Werder Bremen also picked up a win in their German Championship weekend fixture. At home, he scored 3-1 in Mainz. It was the third success followed. He reached the mark of 42 points (11 wins, nine draws and seven losses) entering the zone of classification for international competitions when taking the sixth position.The dispute for the place in the Europa League, however, is still intense. Bayer Leverkusen and Wolfsburg, who have the same score, are out of the pack only because they have a disadvantage in the goal difference.Bremen, however, has shown great strength after Germany’s traditional year-end stoppage. Still not lost in 2019. There were 11 matches (five wins and six draws).In the Cup of Germany, had as great result the elimination in the quarterfinals of Borussia Dortmund in full Signal Iduna Park. The game had a 1-1 draw at regular time, 2-2 in extra time and was set in penalty kicks. Before, they had eliminated SC Weiche-08 (5 to 1) and Worms (6 to 1) with goals.

Football Prediction of the Day Schalke vs Werder Bremen
Although Schalke have been able to break the sequence of bad results, Werder Bremen’s solid campaign makes the prognosis for visitors the best choice for the last match of the quarter-finals of the 2018/2019 Germany Cup.
Bet Tips: Werder Bremen
If we take the names of the two bands, we think there should be a fairly balanced meeting.
But the way they have played the latter lately makes me think that Bremen will be able to finish the 90 minutes at least.
Bremen is unbeaten in the last 10 official matches, and in the previous tour managed to pass even Borussia Dortmund.
Schalke is totally out of shape and I think it’s due to the fact that he is missing many titles.
In the last three home games Schalke has been defeated and in 2 of them he has not even managed to score.
Given these things, I think there are chances that Bremen will end the 90 minutes at least.
