Team News

Schalke 04

  • Joel Matip and Felipe Santana compete for a spot at centre-back.
  • Sead Kolasinac could start at left-back again, with Dennis Aogo switching to the position in central midfield.
  • Jermaine Jones and Leon Goretzka are the first options should manager Jens Keller decide to rest one of his starters.

Werder Bremen

  • Sebastian Prödl is still injured and will be replaced by Assani Lukimya at centre-back again.
  • Franco Di Santo returns from injury to start up front.
  • Otherwise, manager Robin Dutt could field an unchanged team.

Match Facts

  • There have been over 2.5 goals scored in 13 of Schalke’s last 14 home games in the Bundesliga.
  • Schalke have won their last 4 matches against Werder Bremen in all competitions.
  • Schalke have scored at least 2 goals in their last 4 matches against Werder Bremen in all competitions.
  • Schalke have seen over 2.5 goals in their last 3 home matches against Werder Bremen in all competitions.

Prediction

  • Schalke bounced back from the derby loss against Dortmund a fortnight ago with a strong win at Hertha last weekend. Manager Jens Keller is still under huge pressure though and needs a result against Bremen.
  • Bremen are back on track after a last minute win against neighbours Hannover last weekend. With the return of Franco Di Santo, they finally have a natural striker available again.
  • Expect this to be an open and competitive game from the outset.

Schalke 04 2 - 1 Werder Bremen
