Last year, Schalke 04 managed to perform well in the first part of the season to the point where they managed to take a place among the top 8 teams in Germany at the break. On the other hand, the club was completely missed after the deconfinement by losing 7 times in 9 games. During the summer they just beat lower division clubs Aris (1-0) and Bochum (3-0) but suffered from Bayern’s overkill in Matchday 1 (8-0) and therefore took a terrible start.

For its part, Werder Bremen came close to terrible disillusionment last year. In difficulty for months, the residents of the Weserstadion finished in 16th place in the standings, synonymous with dams. Far from mastering their subject against Heidenheim, they obtained their maintenance thanks to the away goal rule (0-0 on the first leg, 2-2 on the return). On the other hand, Florian Kohfeldt’s men seemed to better prepare for this new exercise by being undefeated during the summer and by qualifying for the 2nd round of the German Cup against Carl Zeiss Jena (0-2). This was not enough to avoid the defeat against Hertha Berlin last Friday (1-4).

The workforce for Schalke 04 vs Werder Bremen

Schalke 04 sold his titular goalkeeper Nübel to Bayern and also let go of the very good midfielders Caligiuri (Augsburg) and McKennie (Juventus) while Barcelona’s Todibo and Juan Miranda and side Kenny (Everton) returned to their respective clubs. Conversely, the experienced Bundesliga center-forward Ibisevic (Hertha) and Goncalo Paciencia (Frankfurt) were recruited. Like last week, Schalke records the defections of the defender Nastasic and the uncertainties about the participation of the important Mascarell and Salif Sané.

41-year-old veteran Claudio Pizzaro retired while former Turkish international Sahin packed his bags as did experienced Vogt (Hoffenheim) and Lang (Gladbach) who returned to their club. Last year’s offensive executives Rashica (8 goals), Osako (8 goals), and Klaasen (7 goals) are still there. To this, we add the recruitment of midfielder Erras from Nuremberg and young Mancunien Chong, seen against PSG 2 seasons ago, on loan for a year. Like last weekend, the convicts Rashica and Toprak and the less used Möhwald will not be able to hold their place.
