Schalke 04 Preview

Schalke have always been a force in the Bundesliga and are proving that one again this season. They have already won five games and come into this game off the back of three straight victories. Before that, they went through a blip which saw them go three games without a win. It now seems they have got over that and are once again making it hard for teams to take points away from them. They will see this as an excellent chance to extend this current winning run they are on. Goals certainly haven't been a problem of late with the side scoring seven goals in three games and conceding just once. They will be hoping for a similar kind of performance this weekend which should be enough for the same type of outcome.

Schalke 04 Team News

Schalke could be without five players this weekend with Leon Goretzka (muscle injury), Nabil Bentaleb (hip injury), Donis Avdijaj (ankle injury), Matija Nastasic (ankle injury) and Pablo Insua (rib injury) all sidelined.

Wolfsburg Preview

Wolfsburg come into this one with just one defeat in their last eight Bundesliga games, which sounds fantastic. But when you were they have drawn six of those in that time; it is a record they want to put an end to as soon as possible. Although drawing games isn't the worst result, if they want to start climbing up the table and get away from the bottom three, they must start turning those draws into victories. Every single one of their draws up to now has been a score draw too, meaning they are certainly not struggling to score, it is keeping them out the other end which is proving a real problem for the side.

Wolfsburg Team News

Wolfsburg will be without just four players this weekend with Jeffrey Bruma (knee injury), Kayle Hinds (ill), Ignacio Camacho (ankle injury) and Sebastian Jung (ankle injury) all out.
