THE TEAM NEWS
- Eintracht Frankfurt were thankful that a game-changing red card helped them overturn a half-time deficit in their away game at Hertha on Sunday as the away side demonstrated a ruthless streak against the 10-man hosts.
- Frankfurt trailed at the break but the red card on the stroke of half-time turned the game in their favour as goals from Bas Dost and Evan N’Dicka as well as a brace from Andre Silva sealed a 1-4 win for the visitors.
- They will now hope to build on that as they return to home soil and will be confident of doing so against struggling Schalke 04, especially when they boast an almost full squad to choose from with Gelson Fernandes the only meaningful absentee.
- Schalke 04’s wait for a win was prolonged for yet another game but they will be content with their efforts in earning a point from their clash with Bayer Leverkusen at the weekend in what was their second consecutive draw.
- After Daniel Caligiuri's penalty had put Schalke ahead just after the break, it appeared as though they would pick up their first win in 13 Bundesliga matches but Juan Miranda put through his own net in the final 10 minutes as the hosts failed to hang on.
- They now come into this game with an unclear mindset following that late setback as they would have taken a point before kick-off but their chances in this game are harmed by the suspension of captain Caligiuri.
Schalke 04 came close to ending their long winless run in the
Bundesliga but conceded a goal in the final 10 minutes against Bayer
Leverkusen at the weekend and had to settle for a point. They now head
to Eintracht Frankfurt who took full advantage of playing a half against
10 men as they put four past Hertha to earn all three points. The hosts
will leapfrog the away side in the table with victory and with a place
in the top half of the table the incentive, Frankfurt can extend
Schalke’s wait for a win by adding a defeat to their record and make it
14 games without a victory.
