Schalke travel to Stuttgart on Saturday with both teams in need of a win. Schalke come into this one having lsot four away games in a row and will be looking to turn that around. Roberto Di Mateo's start in charge of the Bundelsiga side has been a bit of a roller coaster and it is hard to tell which Schalke will show up. Injuries have not helped the side with Julian Draxler missing until january with a thigh injury. Huntelaar has found some form recently though firing in a hat trick in Schalke's last outing and he will be looking to keep his partnership with Choupo Moting going strong.
Stuttgart themselves have lost three of their last four and will be looking for a win to move them away from the relegation zone. Knowing that Borussia Dortmund are bottom and with their resources and squad strength likely to get out of the relegation battle means that Stuttgart are really in a relegation spot right now. Lacking a real cutting edge up front is hurting Stuttgart as Ibisevich is still missing through injury although the Bosnian had not scored much this season he provides options up front and with Harnik and Kostic struggling to score enough this could be a long season for Stuttgart and their new manager Huub Stevens.
Cant help but feel this one could go either way, its pretty much a coinflip and I am tempted by the value on Schalke who have the better strikers. I am going to take the overs here though as both have struggled defensively and I think this one is going to have a few goals in it.
