Foot Predictions shows the Bundesliga clash on Saturday between Union Berlin and Schalke 04, including predictions, preview and possible lineups.
Union Berlin to assume Schalke 04 in the Bundesliga on Saturday, with visitors looking to keep their hopes of avoiding relegation alive.
Union Berlin, meanwhile, have failed to win their last four matches, so they will try to return to winning ways to move up the standings.
Having seemed a challenge to the Europa League qualifying positions at one point this season, there may be an element of disappointment in the ranks of Union Berlin over the last drop in form.
In fact, though, Urs FischerThe team team worked miracles to perform as well as without the injured talisman and top scorer Max Kruse after the attacking midfielder tore a bundle of muscles in the Berlin derby defeat in early December.
There is no doubt that Union Berlin had a nightmare afternoon in Mainz 05’s fight on Saturday, however, with Moussa Niakhate22-minute penalty aggravated by Nico SchlotterbeckThe second yellow card and the subsequent expulsion before the scheduled time, with the visitors suffering a disappointing 1-0 defeat.
With Kruse due to return from injury in the coming weeks, however, Fischer hopes that a home game against Schalke, who have scored just three points from nine away games this season, represents the perfect opportunity for his team to get back on track with a win. .
In fact, despite strengthening its defense with the addition of Sead Kolasinac and Shkodran Mustafi from Arsenal, Schalke no longer seems likely to make one of the biggest relegation escapes in European history.
Christian GrossThe team was the second best in the 3-0 defeat at home to RB Leipzig on Saturday, with Marcel Sabitzereffort trained by two headed goals in set pieces by Nordi Mukiele and Willi Orban.
However, Schalke has at least improved somewhat offensively since Gross took over, with Mark Uth wasting his only kick in the first half before leaving the field with a tendon injury.
This news will come as a big blow to Gross, but if Matthew Hoppe and Armine Harit can turn it on in Berlin on Saturday, there is every chance that they can record a disturbance and get a small beam of light at the end of the tunnel.
