With a mere 2 wins in their last five encounter, Schalke have squandered what was a pristine opportunity for them to seal their place in the top 4 of Bundesliga 2019-20. At a time when the side needed to imbed in place a fruitful set of results, they have faltered to go down on a downward spiral, one which has seen them slip places to move down into 6th place.
And out of all their bygone languid displays, the dreariest came in their most recent outing. The side were wiped the floor with by Bayern Munich who routed them 5-0, a calamitous result for Schalke whose goal difference took a massive battering in the trouncing.
And although they take on 13th placed Hertha Berlin today, Schalke will be well aware that a win won’t be easy to come by. They have managed to take away just the solitary point from their last three matches away from home and with Hertha Berlin having defeated Wolfsburg 2-1 the last time around, they’ll be buoyed for this outing.
