Champions League - Qualification: PAOK Vs Schalke - Betting Tip

uefaThe first leg of this Champions League qualifier ended 1-1. Schalke had plenty of chances on 1-0 to cement their Champions League ticket but failed to convert. When you defend as sloppily as Schalke 04 has done so far this season a 1-0 lead is nothing. The Gelsenkirchen outfit learnt that the hard way as Miroslav Stoch scored the equalizer.

Schalke 04 has played one match since the first Champions League qualifier. A game they lost 2-1 away to Hannover. It was quite a game as Schalke had a man sent off within the first quarter of an hour, and one more towards the end. Hannover also saw a man sent off with 25 minutes still to go.

Schalke has no new injury worries to report, that means Huntelaar and Papadopoulos still are out.

PAOK lost 2-0 away to Panaitolikos domestically on Saturday. I’m sure they had Schalke on their mind. Midfielder Kostin Lazar sits out. Other than that the squad should be fit.

I expect Schalke to take the game to PAOK. After all the Greek have an away goal. They can afford to sit back and counter against a really shaky Schalke defense. Schalke will need Draxler, Farfan and Szalai to be at their very best.

Schalke is the better side of the two, but with all the issues they’ve had I don’t see them as material for any betting tips to be honest. They are underpriced too in the market as far as I can see. I can easily see PAOK score on the counter here, and if they do Schalke might very well implode as they have on several occasions already this season.
