With just one win in their last five league games, Schalke will be looking to get all three points when they host Hertha Berlin at the VELTINS-Arena in the 20th round of the German Bundesliga.
Schalke On The Up
The hosts have been in a inconsistent form since the start of the season. The team have won only one game in their last five league competitions and will definitely look to change that. Schalke 04 have collected a total of 5 points from a possible 15 in their last five league games in the Bundesliga. Their last league match was against Bayern Munich away from home where they drew 1-1.
Schalke 04 are currently sitting in the 12th place in the league table. They have 22 points from 6 wins, 4 draws and 9 losses. The team scored 22 goals and conceded 21 since the start of the season.
Johannes Geis, Benjamin Stambouli and Dennis Aogo compete for a spot in central midfield. With Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting doubtful to recover from a muscle injury in time, Daniel Caligiuri could get a chance from the off.
Hertha Looking For Consistency
The visitors are also struggling to get a consistent form in the Bundesliga. The team have won two games and lost three in their last five league games. Hertha BSC have collected a total of 6 points from a possible 15 in their last five league games in the Bundesliga. Their last league match was against Ingolstadt at home where they won 1-0.
Hertha BSC are currently sitting in the 6th place in the league table. They have 33 points from 10 wins, 3 draws and 6 losses. They have scored 27 goals and conceded 21 since the start of the season.
Marvin Plattenhardt should return from an infection to start at left-back. Niklas Stark returns from suspension and provides an option at centre-back or in defensive midfield. Salomon Kalou and Valentin Stocker compete for the spot on the left flank.
Head To Head
Hertha BSC have won 2 of the last 5 meetings between the two teams. The last clash between the two teams was in September 2016 when the final score was 2-0 to Hertha BSC in Berlin.
