THE TEAM NEWS

SCHALKE 04

  • Schalke 04 will be aiming to steal a march on the top four on Friday night as they host Union Berlin at the VELTINS-Arena, where their only defeat this season has been against Bayern.
  • Striker Mark Uth has been nursing an adductor problem this week and will be assessed, and the game is likely to come too soon for Alessandro Schopf and Nassim Boujellab.
  • Guido Burgstaller or Rabbi Matondo could replace Uth in attack if he doe not recover in time, but otherwise it is likely to be the side that started in the 2-1 win at Werder Bremen last Saturday.

Predicted line-up (4-2-3-1): Nubel; Kenny, Nastasic, Kabak, Oczipka; Mascarell, Serdar; Caligiuri, Harit, Raman; Burgstaller

Unavailable: Bentaleb (Injured), Stambouli (Injured), Sane (Injured)

Doubtful: Uth (Injured), Boujellab (Injured), Schopf (Injured)

UNION BERLIN

  • Union Berlin pulled off another impressive home win against leaders Borussia Monchengladbach last weekend and have now won five of their last six games overall.
  • Coach Urs Fischer must decide whether to recall Robert Andrich, who had played every minute in the Bundesliga before being suspended against Gladbach, or keep faith with the same line-up.
  • Wingers Suleiman Abdullahi and Joshua Mees have been ruled out again, with the pair due to return to full training next week, but Fischer has no new personnel issues.

Predicted line-up (3-4-1-2): Gikiewicz; Schlotterbeck, Subotic, Friedrich; Trimmel, Gentner, Andrich, Lenz; Ingvartsen; Ujah, Andersson

Unavailable: Promel (Injured), Gogia (Injured), Abdullahi (Injured), Mees (Injured)

Doubtful:

THE PREDICTION

Schalke have lost just one of their last 10 Bundesliga matches but they have only managed one clean sheet in the last nine. Union Berlin will travel to Gelsenkirchen with no fear after toppling Borussia Monchengladbach last time out, so both teams can be confident of scoring here.
