Schalke Betting News

If we said that Schalke had a disastrous start of the season, it would be an understatement. The results and performances in the opening five rounds left them on the rock bottom of the table, with no points. And the match against Moenchengladbach, which is in a solid form currently, can push them even deeper. In their defense, Schalke played only two home matches, against reigning champions Bayern Munich and against Cologne, which performs amazingly well currently, but if we know that Schalke never lost three opening matches in Bundesliga, five opening defeats are a real catastrophe. Coach Markus Weinzierl came to club this summer and pledged to fight for the spot in Champions League, which seems as mission impossible now. The pressure is mounting and if he loses the forthcoming match he will probably be sacked. Schalke had a good start in Europa League though, by defeating Nice on a road and Salzburg at home.

Injuries and suspensions: Sidney Sam, Fabian Reese, Bernard Tekpetey, Fabian Giefer, Atsuto Uchida, Joshua Bitter, Timon Wellenreuther, Chistian Sivodedov, Donis Avdijaj and Coke are injured for the forthcoming match.
