Schalke will host Werder Bremen on Sunday in a must win game for both teams for very different reasons. A win for Schalke can move them into the top four and a Champions League spot , something Schalke fans have become used to given the teams success over recent years. Schalke are a tough team to play against but they have struggled with scoring goals. Franko Di Santo moved from Werder Bremen last season after scoring thirteen goals and although Di Santo hasnt lit up the scoring charts this season alongside Huntelaar and Choupo Moting the front three have the quality to beat anyone on their day. Schalke have been excellent at home scoring in all bar two games at home and winning five of the nine games.
Werder Bremen come into this game in need of a win as they are currently in the midst of a relegation battle. Bremen are coming into this game after break in a little bit of form unbeaten in their last three friendlies. Bremen have struggled all season to get wins and in their last five in the league they drew two and lost three. Goals have been a problem and Pizarro and Ujah have just nine between them all season. Ujah with seven goals is the top scorer and really Bremen need more goals.
This is a tough game to call. Schalke though are definitely the more talented side on paper but this is a game that they will be looking to win.I'm going to take Schalke straight up here as I think Werder Bremen's goal struggles may just come back to haunt them here.
