Schalke 04 was placed in the 5th position. They made 22 points in the table. They scored 22 goals with 14 assists. While FC Union Berlin was placed at 11th position. They made 16 points in the table. They scored 15 goals with 9 assists. Schalke have lost just one of their last 10 Bundesliga matches but they have only managed one clean sheet in the last nine.
The Union Berlin Coach Urs Fischer is in deep trouble to take a decision whether to recall Robert Andrich, who had played every minute in the Bundesliga before being suspended against Gladbach or keep trust with the same line-up. Benjamin Stambouli has broken foot and there is no chance that he will play any time soon. Michael Langer’s back injury is monitored daily and soon he may be playing again.
Suleiman Abdullahi is recovering after head injury and we may expect to see him on the bench. Jakob Busk injured his finger and in a few days, he may start training again. Joshua Mees has an unpleasant groin injury and club doctors do not wish to give any prognosis about his return.
