Schalke vs Paderborn: Match preview
Schalke took a big turn against Hertha and went among the top eight in the Cup. However, just winning this competition brings them placement in Europe, so it is much more important for them to continue their success in the Bundesliga and go to the Champions League again.
Paderborn makes a sensation, but then immediately loses again and after each new round they are all beyond survival.
Schalke team news:
Schalke’s young team is over-oscillating with their performances to qualify for the German Championship title, but they definitely have the quality to return to European competitions. The second part of the season opened the Wagner squad with a great presentation and a valuable win over Borussia Monchengladbach.
This was followed by a real dive at the away game at Bayern Munich. In the last round, Schalke scored a point against Hertha in Berlin after the match without a hit. Straight afterwards they defeated the same opponent after extra time on Tuesday in front of his fans in Gelsenkirchen.
Wagner’s team thus passed to the next phase of the DFB Cup after a dramatic match in which they scored two goals to Hertha. They completely reversed the result in their own favor in the final phase of the second overtime with a goal by Raman.
Probable lineup: Nubel, McKennie, Kabak, Nastasić, Oczipka, Schopf, Mascarell, Serdar, Harit, Gregoritsch, Raman.
Paderborn team news:
Paderborn is a major league relegation favorite, but Baumgart’s squad should definitely not be dismissed too early despite being in the last position of the championship standings. After all, Paderborn is currently only three points behind the rescue zone.
On several occasions throughout the season, Baumgart’s team has troubled the strongest teams in the league. After a valuable away triumph at Freiburg, the Paderborn team registered their second heavy home defeat this calendar year.
After four goals received against Bayer, Wolfsburg shook Paderborn’s net four times in the last round also.
Probable lineup: Zingerle, Jans, Strohdiek, Schonlau, Collins, Vasiliadis, Gjasula, Sabiri, Proger, Srbeny, Antwi-Adjei.
We won’t say nothing new if we say that Schalke will win this match. But, Paderborn is an interesting team, so don’t be surprised if they score a goal or two in this match.
