Schalke are currently bottom of the Bundesliga, having only picked up three wins this season. Thomas Reis' side have been in disastrous form of late, having lost four of their last five games across all competitions. They will look to pick up momentum with a win against Nurnberg ahead of the domestic season's restart.
Nurnberg are currently 11th in the 2. Bundesliga, two points above the relegation zone. Markus Weinzierl's side have been in decent form of late, having only lost one of their last five games across all competitions. They will hope to continue their form with a win against Schalke this week.
Both sides will want to win the game and that should make for an interesting matchup.
