Schalke 04 vs Union Berlin: Match preview
This match may be called one of the derbies, especially if one looks at the performance of the two teams in the last rounds. The guests are coming with three tied wins after which they reached the 11th position. The Berliners first beat the city rival Hertha, in Berlin’s first Bundesliga derby in history. Then they celebrated in Mainz, then knocked down the leader, Borussia in the last round.
Schalke won points in a visit to Bremen, and had the “royal blue” not played three draws in their Arena, now they would probably be the leaders. Still, the gap is not big, Schalke is only three points short of M’gladbach.
Schalke 04 team news:
For now, Schalke is keeping up with his rivals in the European race. With the arrival of the new coach, the team is playing more attractive football. The fans are looking forward to good results after a bad last season. So far, Schalke’s team has played 14 official matches and has recorded just two defeats, from the current champion at the start of the season and away from Hoffenheim just over a month ago.
After that defeat, five positive results have been recorded. Wagner can be pleased with the play of his offensive players, who have shaken the opponent’s net 11 times in the last four games.
Schalke’s motives will definitely not be lacking, especially when it is known that to win at least one day would top the championship table with Borussia M’gladbach.
Probable lineup: Nubel, Kenny, Kabak, Nastasić, Oczipka, Serdar, Mascarell, Caligiuri, McKennie, Harit, Raman.
Union Berlin team news:
Union Berlin came as a big surprise when, at the end of last season, after two games in the Bundesliga playoffs. They werr better than the incomparably wealthy Stuttgart. The first league match was not in the best memory of the fans as Fischer’s home team suffered a heavy defeat against RB Leipzig.
But, this was followed by better results that proved that Union deserves to be part of the German football elite. After all, Union has beaten Borussia Dortmund and M’gladbach this season, and suffered a good deal at Bayern Munich, although there was minimal defeat in that match.
Union has recorded three wins in the last three rounds and is currently in the middle of the table. This is definitely about everyone’s expectation in the club.
Probable lineup: Gikiewicz, Freidrich, Subotić, Schlotterbeck, Trimmel, Gentner, Andrich, Lenz, Ingvartsen, Bulter, Andersson.
We definitely expect an interesting match in here. Schalke is a favorite in this match, but Union has something to say. Because of that, we will go with the goals. Our prediction is that both teams will score at least a goal.
