Team News

  • Simon Jentzsch is still injured and Alexander Manninger will replace him in goal.
  • Daniel Baier will most likely start as a lone defensive midfielder again, with Jan Moravek and Dong-Won Ji playing in front of him.
  • Sascha Mölders is likely to keep his spot up front after a good performance last weekend.
  • With Kyriakos Papadopoulos still injured, Joel Matip will start at centre-back again.
  • Lewis Holtby could switch back to defensive midfield, with Ciprian Marica taking his spot behind the striker.
  • Klaas-Jan Huntelaar returns from suspension to start up front.

Prediction

  • Augsburg have regained confidence after just their second win of the season last weekend. They need to find stability now to close the huge gap to 15th place.
  • Schalke won their first game under new manager Keller, but they need to improve defensively again. The return of Klaas-Jan Huntelaar could give the team a boost.
  • Expect Augsburg to wait for their chances on the break and Schalke to control the game.
