SCH Vs WBN Dream11 Team Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: Spiralling down the points tally, Schalke find themselves in dire need of a win
For Wagner, the current predicament he’s going through with Schalke is very reminiscent of his peril with Huddersfield in the Premier League. The slump down from the Premier League with the side saw him being with rebuked of his duties with Schalke eventually snagging him up.
And it was all hunky dory for Wagner in Bundesliga in the first part of the season before the turn of 2020 saw everything around him and the club crashing down. Left without a win in their last five fixtures in the league, the side has ended up plunging all the way down into ninth spot.
What has been a bigger cause of concern for them though is the manner in which those defeats have come. The side has flagrantly fallen apart, losing all semblance around it to ship in a horrendous 12 goals in their last five encounters with only 2 coming up in reply.
Currently on a three match losing spree after being dismissed 2-1 by Fortuna the last time around, Schalke are in a real pickle at the moment. And with a rejuvenated Werder Bremen side up against them today, Schalke’s predicament looks set to further with the side taking on a team filled with purpose and meaning.
While safety is quite a long way off for 17th placed Werder Bremen, things no longer look remorse filled for them. The side drew 0-0 with Borussia Monchengladbach the last time around to record its third unbeaten result in its last four encounters.
That showing paired with Schalke’s waning form will hold in good stead for the visitors with us envisioning them coming out of this one with the three points.

- Harit and Serdar both continue to miss out from service for Schalke given their current injury situation.
- Füllkrug, Möhwald and Toprak are all riddled with injuries for the visitors with Veljkovic also sitting out after being red carded earlier.

SCH Vs WBN Dream11 Goal-Keeper
The stoutheaded Jiri Pavlenka was at the fore of his side’s cleansheet the last time around. Had it not been for his incredible showing, Werder Bremen would have faltered in their aspirations of curbing Borussia Monchengladbach from scoring to see us make the shot stopper a must have pick.
SCH Vs WBN Dream11 Defenders
With Werder Bremen having leaked in 59 goals this term and Schalke having conceded on 12 occasions in their last five affairs, nothing could be further off the mark than a cleansheet today. This is a tie where two sides will dismiss their defensive gameplan and spare no expense in a bid to pile on the goals.
The narrative sees us opt for only defenders with an attacking penchant to see us rope in a trio from Schalke. It sees us bring in both the wingbacks from Schalke with us beginning with Bastian Oczipka who has the five assists for the side with Jonjoe Kenny giving him company.
Matija Nastasic completes the trio of picks from the side while the opposition will see the guile filled Theodor Gebre Selassie find a place in our side after his assist the last time around.
SCH Vs WBN Dream11 Midfielders
Given the manner in which Schalke is unravelling as a defence team, it was only befitting of us to make Davy Klaassen from Werder Bremen the first pick for the encounter. With the four goals and four assists this season, he will make for a formidable name for Schalke, a side which will fall flat on its face infront of him.
The side’s top scorer with a staggering 7 goals and 4 assists, Milot Rashica joins hum up for the encounter with Leonardo Bittencourt also hammering down his spot from the side. On the other hand meanwhile, we have the singular selection with the calibre of Daniel Caligiuri making him an indispensible pick.
SCH Vs WBN Dream11 Strikers
At a time when Schalke are fraught with injuries to the attacking ambit, Michael Gregoritsch is once again back in favour. And the striker is more than capable of compensating for his side’s attacking names as well with his ability to traverse past defenders making him a tough nut to crack.
Captain And Vice-Captain
We’ll be making Michael our captain with Werder Bremen having shipped in 59 goals while Rashica is our vice-captain.
