Team News

Schalke : Schalke were back on winning ways last MatchDay as they defeated a rather charged up Hertha Berlin away on MatchDay 8 of the Bundesliga. It now remains to be seen if Schalke boss Domenico Tedesco doesn’t change anything and make do with the same line up as previous MatchDay, i.e. keeping the 4 changes that he made against Hertha for the win. A win will also mean a top 4 place for Schalke for the time being. Tedesco has no fresh injury concerns to deal with but he will be again without American youngster Weston McKennie, Nastasic and Insua for the clash.

Possible line up Schalke (3-4-3) – Fährmann; Stambouli, Naldo, Kehrer; Caligiuri, Meyer, Goretzka, Oczipka; Burgstaller, Di Santo, Harit.

Mainz : After a cracking victory against the ‘we never got relegated side’ Hamburg, Mainz face a high flying Schalke on MatchDay 9 of the Bundesliga. Placed in 10th place, with a poor away record of just 1 point in 3 MatchDays, it remains to be seen if they can turn the table this time around against the Royal Blues. Though stats are supporting the Royal Blues massively, either it’s Head to Head or recent stats as previous season also Mainz were defeated in both leg’s by Schalke. In team news Mainz boss Sandro Schwarz will be having a full squad to pick from and it will be logical if he picks the same team that defeated Hamburg on MatchDay 8.

Possible line up Mainz (4-2-3-1) – Adler; Donati, Bell, Diallo, Brosinski; Latza, Gbamin; De Blasis, Maxim, Öztunali; Quaison.
