THE TEAM NEWS

UNION BERLIN

  • Union Berlin’s poor run of form continued as they failed to win for a sixth consecutive match in the Bundesliga and they are now in real trouble at the wrong end of the table after a heavy loss to Borussia Monchengladbach.
  • Union trailed by two goals at the break and despite pulling one back soon into the second half through Sebastian Andersson, any hope of getting back into the game did not last long as the hosts added a third before rounding off the scoring with a fourth in the final 10 minutes.
  • They must now attempt to halt their slide down the table with a home game against Schalke 04 but they will again be without Sheraldo Becker and Julian Ryerson while Akaki Gogia and Christopher Lenz are doubtful.

SCHALKE 04

  • Schalke 04 lost yet again last week as they suffered a fourth consecutive loss since the Bundesliga restarted and they are now without a win in their last 11 league matches in what is a turgid run of form.
  • While relegation is still not a real threat at this point, this streak without a victory is bound to be a big concern after losing 0-1 to Werder Bremer last week in what was another underwhelming display.
  • To make matters worse for Schalke, they will be without the suspended Weston McKennie while Jean-Clair Todibo has suffered an ankle injury and will be absent but they will be hoping that Benjamin Stambouli can at least make the bench as he edges closer to a return to action.

THE PREDICTION

Both Union Berlin and Schalke 04 are struggling for form and the pair meet here in what is likely to be a nervy contest. Schalke are without a win in their last 11 matches and come into this game with yet more personnel problems. Union are on a worrying slide down the table after performing well for most of the season and will be desperate to pick up the three points against a side who are even lower on confidence than they are. However, with both teams light on goals in recent games, this should be a low-scoring affair.
