FRK Vs SCH Fantasy Team Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: Bottom placed Schalke finally record their first win of the season.
Yet to register a win in the ongoing season of the Bundesliga, Schalke took on Hoffenheim staring at an unwanted record. Another winless result would have seen them become holders of the longest winless spree in the league, an unsavoury record the club strived to veer clear of.
It was this narrative which finally managed to spur the side this season. The club was enigmatic and enterprising against Hoffenheim, dishing out its most sublime performance of the season to maneuverer its way to its first three points of the season.
Buoyed by that 4-0 rout, Schalke take on Frankfurt today looking to emulate their fight and character from the foregone tie.

Keeping two cleansheets in his last three matches, Frankfurt’s Kevin Trapp has been integral to the club’s three wins on the spin.
Despite Schalke’s four goals the last time around, we’ll still be opting for a triad of picks from Frankfurt. Schalke continue to remain the worst attacking unit in the league, a side which has failed to score in three of its last five contests.
We’ll be opting for all of Evan Ndicka, Martin Hinteregger and Erik Durm from the home side owing to this narrative. Elsewhere, with a first cleansheet in five matches, Ozan Kabak will canter his way into our unit from Schalke.
Amine Harit has worked his way past defences astutely to record the most number of assists for Schalke this term at four. Frankfurt on the other hand see us indulge in the services of the resplendent Sebastian Rode and Djibril Sow.
Frankfurt’s top scorer this term with a gargantuan 11 goals, Andre Silva completes the set of selections from the club.
Matthew Hoppe’s hattrick the last time around was responsible for guiding the club to its first win of this season. He finds company in Mark Uth who has popped up with two goals this season.
Captain And Vice-Captain
11 goal man Silva is our team’s captain while Rode is the vice-captain.
Trapp, Ndicka, Durm, Kabak, Martin, Rode, Sow, Harit, Uth, Silva, Hoppe
