Schalke awaiting Hertha Berlin in ninth round of German Bundesliga. They are at third position at the table after eight rounds with sixteen points. Schalke showed solid performances in this season and they are for sure satisfied with their results. They ended previous season at sixth position at the table and now are playing in Europa league where they achieved two victories in first two rounds. Schalke are coming to this match after defeat in previous round against Koln and before that they had series of six consecutive victories. They will for sure give their best to get back on the track after that unpleasant defeat in last round. Schalke has positive record against Hertha and in last five matches they achieved four victories with one draw. Defenders Atsuto Uchida, Matija Nastasic and Marco Hoger and goalkeeper Fabian Giefer will miss this match due to injuries.
Hertha on the other side are at fourth position at the table with only two points less than Schalke. They showed great performances in this season and for sure will try to achieve positive outcome in this match. Hertha are in good form and they are coming to this match after victory at their field against Hamburger 3:0. They showed much better performances at home, they achieved only one victory on the road in this season. They had a lot of problems with injuries and team can be more than satisfied with results so far, they are at high fourth position at the table, and for sure will give their best to achieve their second victory on the road in this season. Previous season Hertha ended at fifteenth position at the table and they are the biggest surprise on start of this campaign. Attacking midfielders Anis Ben Hatira and Roy Beerens, forwards Sami Allagui and Julian Schieber, defenders Peter Pekarik, Niklas Stark and John Brooks and goalkeeper Thomas Kraft will miss this match due to injuries while defender Sebastian Landkamp is having a problem with slight injury and his appearance is in doubt.
Schalke will for sure go for a win here in front of their fans, they must recoup that defeat from previous round against Koln, while Hertha showed decent performances in this season and they will try to give their best here and avoid defeat, but I expect home victory for this match.
