Schalke vs Bayern Munich Match Preview and Team News
Schalke 04 lost their last game against their direct rivals from the bottom Koln with 1-2, conceding the losing goal deep into stoppage time. That was their 5th defeat in their last six games, and now they are massive 10 points behind the safe places on the table. Schalke 04 suffered 12 losses this season in their 17 games and are conceding almost three goals per match on average. That pretty much sums up their overall strength this season. Math, numbers, and stats never lie. Schalke 04 have conceded shocking 44 goals in 17 games and collected just 7 points so far. No team has ever survived in the Bundesliga with those numbers at exactly half-point of the season. There are 17 rounds left, and only a miraculous run of victories could save Schalke 04. Suat Serdar has excellent control of the ball, and he can play in several positions. Matthew Hoppe enjoys the field, and when he receives the ball and heads towards the goal, the opponent has problems. He does great in the penalty area.
It is an interesting season for Bayern Munich. They are still the best team in Germany but are drawing some criticism for their way of play this season. The Bavarians have won 5 of their last six games, including each of their previous two against SC Freiburg (2-1) and Augsburg (0-1). They were especially criticized for their last two wins, where they played very sloppy and feared not to drop points. Both SC Freiburg and Augsburg were very close to snatching points of them and played better than Bayern Munich in the second half of those games. Interestingly, the last 0-1 victory over Augsburg was only 3rd time in 17 games for Bayern Munich to keep a clean sheet this season. Before that game, they were on a series of 11 consecutive matches in which they conceded at least once. Kingsley Coman enjoys the pitch, and when he receives the ball and heads towards the goal, the opponent has problems because he goes through the defense like a fast train.
