Schalke host Stuttgart in the Bundesliga on Friday. The Miners have had a shocking start to the season, will playing in Gelsenkirchen help them avoid defeat against Stuttgart?

Schalke Form

Schalke have had a terrible start to the Bundesliga season. They began with three straight defeats, 8-0 at Bayern Munich, 3-1 against Werder Bremen and 4-0 at Leipzig.

Manager David Wagner didn’t survive and was replaced by Manuel Baum. The Miners picked up their first point in a 1-1 draw against Union Berlin despite managing only 0.25 expected goals.

Schalke fell to a 3-0 defeat at Borussia Dortmund in the Revierderby on Saturday. Baum’s side had 25% possession and 0.24 expected goals, the fourth match in their last five with under 0.25 expected goals.

Schalke Team News

Goalkeeper Ralf Fährmann is doubtful, Frederik Rönnow should continue in goal after joining on loan from Eintracht Frankfurt. 

Centre-back Ozan Kabak is suspended, central midfielder Suat Serdar is injured and forward Mark Uth is doubtful.

Stuttgart Form

Stuttgart started the season with a 1-0 win against Hansa Rostock 1-0 in the German Cup. They suffered a 3-2 home defeat to Freiburg in their opening Bundesliga match.

Pellegrino Matarazzo’s side are undefeated in four matches since. The Swabians overturned a 2-0 deficit to win 4-2 at Mainz, Mateo Klimowicz and Sasa Kalajdzic scoring after Mainz were reduced to 10 men.

Stuttgart drew 1-1 at home to Bayer Leverkusen, won 2-0 at Hertha Berlin and drew 1-1 against Koln in their last match. Orel Mangala scored in the first minute, but they lost control and will ultimately be content with a point after having 0.72-2.38 expected goals.

Stuttgart Team News

Stuttgart are missing injured centre-back Konstantinos Mavropanos and left-back Borna Sosa. 

Winger Erik Thommy and attacking midfielder Philipp Förster are fighting to be fit and could make the bench.

Schalke vs Stuttgart Match Up

Schalke are hard to watch at the moment. They can’t score and can’t defend, it’s a miracle they are not bottom of the Bundesliga table.

Surely the run can’t last forever, and playing at home against Stuttgart give them an opportunity to get a result. The Swabians have overachieved this season, showing their vulnerability after taking an early lead against Koln last week.
