Schalke 04 vs. Hertha Berlin: Match Preview

Team from Gelsenkirchen occupies 12-th site in the Bundesliga table, which seems to be a failure for contemporary Schalke 04 whose financial and human resource capacity is greatly important. The team clearly misses a good attacking line where there's no strongly marked striker, while Breel Embolo and Franco Di Santo will be left out of the playing squad for fitness reasons. Klaas-Jan Huntelaar has dropped the residues of his form, and as Guido Burgstaller is never treated as a well-qualified forward. So, that's why such players like Nabil Bentaleb, Yevhen Konoplyanka, and Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting have to pull it all up for their team in attack. In case "The Royal Blues" won't alter their results to more positive in the near future, the club will meet up one of the gutless seasons over last 20 years.

Berlin football club Hertha squeezes the maximum from their capabilities, as well as they are referred to the pretenders for Champions league advancement. The distance to third-coming Eintracht Frankfurt consists of 2 units that could award "The Old Lady" with a chance of popping into the Champions league next season. However, there have recently been poor results got by Pál Dárdai's men as they suffered 3 defeats out of the last five games. Unfortunately, Hertha financial resources are limit, and they have to operate with not numerous fund reserve.

Possible starting lineups of the teams:

Schalke 04: Ralf Fährmann - Matija Nastasic, Naldo, Benedikt Höwedes - Sead Kolasinac, Nabil Bentaleb, Johannes Geis, Leon Goretzka, Alessandro Schöpf - Daniel Caligiuri - Guido Burgstaller (3-5-1-1 formation)

Hertha Berlin: Rune Jarstein - Peter Pekarík, Sebastian Langkamp, John Brooks, Marvin Plattenhardt - Fabian Lustenberger, Per Skjelbred - Genki Haraguchi, Vladimir Darida, Salomon Kalou - Vedad Ibisevic (4-2-3-1 formation)

Schalke 04: Breel Embolo, Coke, Franco Di Santo, Abdul Rahman Baba. Doubts: Atsuto Uchida, Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting.

Hertha Berlin: Nils-Jonathan Koerber, Mitchell Weiser, Sinan Kurt, Ondrej Duda, Allan.

Schalke and Hertha, in fact, can bring some spectacular show of German football.
