Schalke 04 vs. Werder Bremen – prediction, team news, lineups
Bremen, who occupy 17th spot in the table, have picked up four points from their last two matches, but Schalke have lost each of their three games since the Bundesliga resumed on May 16.
Schalke’s search for their first Bundesliga win since the middle of January will continue this weekend, and there is no question that the club’s supporters will be looking for their side to bounce back as soon as possible.
Not since a 2-0 success at home to Borussia Monchengladbach on January 17 have Schalke collected all three points in the league, while they have now lost five of their last six in Germany’s top flight.
David Wagner’s side played out a 1-1 draw with Hofffenheim before the Bundesliga was called to a halt in March, but Die Konigsblauen have lost each of their three matches since the action resumed on May 16.
Indeed, a 4-0 defeat to BorussiaDortmund was followed by a 3-0 reverse at home to Augsbuurg, before they suffered a 2-1 defeat at struggling FortunaDusseldorf on Wednesday night.
Schalke are still ninth in the table but have now fallen five points off sixth-placed Wolfs burg in the race for a Europa League spot, meaning that a positive result this weekend is vital.
Bremen remain in a difficult position in the table, with a total of 22 points from 27 matches leaving them 17th position, six points behind 15th-placed Mainz05.
Florian Kohfeldt’s side have a game in hand over every side in the division other than EintrachtFrankfurt, though, and have picked up four points from their last two matches.
Indeed, a 1-0 success over Freiburg on May 23 was followed by a goalless draw at home to Borussia Monchengladbach on Tuesday night, which could be two big results in their fight for survival.
Bremen’s game in hand against Frankfurt is next Wednesday, and a positive result against Schalke in this match would lead them nicely into what is a six-pointer at the bottom of the table.
Die Werderaner have not operated outside of the Bundesliga since the 1980-81 campaign, but the team are certainly in a battle to secure their top-flight status this season.

Schalke will again be without the services of Omar Mascarell and Benjamin Stambouli through injury, but Amine Harit and on-loan Barcelona centre-back Jean-Clair Todibo could both return to the starting XI.
Ozan Kabak made his return from a back injury against Dusseldorf during the week, but Todibo could be handed a spot in the first XI after featuring late on in the same match.
Suat Serdar is also a doubt, meaning that Rabbi Matondo could keep his spot.
As for Bremen, Claudio Pizarro, Omer Toprak, Niclas Fullkrug and Kevin Mohwald are still on the sidelines through injury, but Ludwig Augustinsson is in contention to feature.
There could be changes from the draw on Tuesday, though, with Leonardo Bittencourt and Fin Bartels both in contention to start, while Philipp Bargfrede is available again following a suspension.
Schalke possible starting lineup:
Schubert; Nastasic, Todibo, Sane; Kenny, McKennie, Schopf, Oczipika; Matondo, Burgstaller, Caliguiri
Werder Bremen possible starting lineup:
Pavlenka; Gebre Selassie, Veljkovic, Moisander, Freidl; Klaassen, Eggestein, Bartels; Rashica, Sargent, Bittencourt
