Schalke 04 started very poorly this championship. Coach Markus Weinzierl appears not to have yet found the best formula, starring the biggest problems that do not provide them with midfielders assists for strikers.
Both teams looking for the first victory in this championship. Given that the two coaches have quality players in attack, we expect a game with many phases of the gate, and implicit goals.
