Dream 11 Picks
Schalke’s Alexander Nubel will be snared by us in the goal-keeping docket for this impending tie. Despite his side’s defence being apathy filled at the moment, the shot stopper has inducted in place the due processes to pull off a string of saves in every outing.
Having shipped in a horrendous 98 goals in between them this season, these two sides hardly look set to engulf us in a low scoring tie today. This will be a mach where the defensive side of the game will be tossed out of the window with either side thrusting all their impetuous towards scoring.
With both set to be left devoid of a cleansheet on the day, it was only rightful of us to limit our side to the bare minimum of three requisite picks. And all our selections are of names who holding an attacking inclination as well, a narrative which sees us rope in the wingback duo from the home side.

With 7 goals in this season, Marius Bulter has been responsible in keeping Union Berlin adrift of the relegation zone up till now. The player has spearheaded the side’s consummate success in the attacking slot, a name who has unnervingly waged a lone battle for his side in the league.
We are pairing him alongside Christian Gentner, two players who are set to make life tricky for a regressing Schalke outfit. Elsewhere, with Union Berlin having shipped in 15 goals in their last 5 outings including 4 in the last one itself, we have a partnership represent us from Schalke as well.
Our duo will comprise of Alessandro Schopf and Daniel Caligiuri, two players who are set to toy around with Union Berlin’s backline and walk all over a paper thin backline.
The profound Sebastian Andersson was never going to go anywhere for us for this encounter. The Union Berlin man has top scored for the side with a gargantuan 12 goals, a figure which is a testament to the pulsating brand of football he’s bestowed with as a striker.
With four goals and the three assists meanwhile, Benito Raman will be our pick from Schalke for the impending fixture along with Michael Gregoritsch.
