Hamburger vs Schalke by Rahul
Schalke come into this game in desperate need of a victory against a team that is also struggling. Schalke have only found the back of the net 19 times; which has been the major cause for their struggles this season. Key forwards Embolo, Di Santo, Huntelaar, Choupo-Moting a be struggling to find the back of the net, and now Embolo is ruled out until Feb/March with an ankle injury. Schalke will have to rely on Choupo-Moting, Konoplyanka, Bentaleb and Schopf to contribute to the scoring with the struggles that they are facing. Defensively, Schalke have been poor concding 11 times in 15 matches. Defensively also they miss key signing Nastasic and Coke out with injuries while Naldo is suspended, leaving them with less cover at the back.
Both teams need a win, Hamburg coming in with good form, while Schalke struggling defensively and need to turn it around. I am backing over 2.5 goals in this one, as I am expecting both to go for a win here before the Christmas break.
