This Saturday, Schalke 04 welcomed Wolfsburg for matchday 33 of the Bundesliga. At the Veltins-Arena, the visitors showed no mercy and thrashed the home team by 4-1. Two goals from Wout Weghorst and one from Kevin Mbabu and Joao Victor gave the victory to the Wolves. Rabbi Matondo scored the consolation for the Royal Blues.

The visitors started the first half already trying to control the match, already trying to break the deadlock. They had good opportunities since the early minutes, but the first goal didn’t come until the 16th minute. After a cross, Weghorst took advantage of the confusion inside the box and put the ball into the back of Alexander Nubel’s nets.

The hosts clearly felt the goal, once they couldn’t create good chances during the first 45 minutes. The visitors also didn’t get any good chances of doubling their scoring, so they went to the locker room with just one goal ahead.

In the second half, Schalke started attacking, and goalkeeper Koen Casteels made an incredible save to keep his team ahead on the scoring. His award came in the 56th minute when Wolfsburg scored their second goal. Weghorst received a pass from Renato Steffen and once again put the ball into the back of the net.

If things were already bad for the hosts, it got worse just 3 minutes later. At the 59th minute, after a free-kick, Daniel Ginczek hit the post, but Mbabu was there to put the ball into the back of the net and make it 3-0.

Wolfsburg didn’t stop even with a great advantage on the scoring, and at the 69th minute, they found the back of the net once again. After a corner, goalkeeper Nubel’s exit was bad and the ball was left to Joao Victor at the edge of the box. The Brazilian hit a powerful low shot and basically ended the match.

One minute later, Schalke were even able to find their consolation goal, in a fast play in which Matondo went forward and bet goalkeeper Casteels. However, it was not enough and the match ended 4-1 to the visitors.

With the victory, Wolfsburg reached 49 points, in 6th place. Schalke 04, on the other hand, stopped at 39 points, now in 11th place.
