Both teams winless

Schalke have not picked up all three points in any of their last 9 games. Whereas, Fortuna have not managed a victory in their last 4 games. Fortuna are near the bottom of the table but are in much better form than their opponents. 
18:54a year ago

Eyes on the Europa League

A Schalke victory tonight would see them close the gap on Wolfsburg, who occupy the final Europa League spot to just two points. Schalke play Wolfsburg on the second to last game of the season. They need to improve their form if they are wanting to qualify for Europe.
18:50a year ago

Werder Bremen Draw

Werder Bremen drew last night 0-0 with Borussia Mönchengladbach. The draw means that Werder close the gap to Düsseldorf to only two points. Werder occupy the final relegation place, whereas, Düsseldorf sit one place above Werder, in the relegation playoff spot. Düsseldorf must avoid defeat tonight.

Schalke Team News

Amine Hart will not feature after he is still recovering from a ligament injury he suffered against Borussia Dortmund. Likewise, Jean-Clair Todibo will miss this game due to an ankle injury he sustained against Dortmund. Suat Serder is a huge doubt after he limped off in the 3-0 defeat against Augsburg at the weekend. Jonjoe Kenny, Weston McKennie, Salif Sane and Daniel Caligiuri will all need to be cautious as they are all one yellow card away from a one-game ban.

12:11a year ago

Düsseldorf Team News

Turkish defender, Kaan Ayhan will return to the starting line-up following a one game ban, and Mathias Jorgensen will drop to the bench in his place. Goalkeeper, Steffen is looking like he will miss the remainder of the season following chronic knee promblems, whilst striker Dawid Kownacki will also miss the game. Valon Berisha is likely to be recalled in midfield as both managers will look to make changes due to the hectic Bundesliga schedule.

12:10a year ago

Different Fights

Both Düsseldorf and Schalke need to pick up all three points but for different reasons. The home side sit in the relegation playoff place and are three points from safety. However, Werder Bremen, who sit one place below in the automatic relegation place, have a game in hand over Düsseldorf and are only three points behind them. Elsewhere, the race for the final Europa League spot seems to be going nowhere as the four teams who were in that fight all failed to pick up three points over the weekend. It is a must win for both teams on Wednesday night.

12:09a year ago

Struggling for Wins

Both sides are struggling for wins, with Düsseldorf drawing their last four consecutive games and Schalke are on a nine-game winless run. Only bottom side Paderborn have a worse record than Schalke in the last nine games. Düsseldorf were 2-0 up against FC Köln at the weekend until the 87th minute. Then a goal in the 88th and 91st minute, saw Köln draw level and both teams left with a point. It was even worse for Schalke who were dominated on the score-line 3-0 by Augsburg despite dominating possession themselves.
12:09a year ago

Hennings Hat-trick Hero

The two sides played out an emphatic 3-3 draw, in a game which saw Schalke take the lead three times and Düsseldorf’s striker and captain, Hennings, score the equaliser every time. The game saw five out of six goals in the second half and Hennings completed his hat-trick with a dramatic 85th minute chip on the Schalke keeper. It was the first hat-trick of his Bundesliga career and the first time Düsseldorf had avoided defeat when going behind.
12:04a year ago

Kick-off Time

Düsseldorf vs Schalke will be played at the Merkur Spiel-Arena, in Düsseldorf, Germany. The kick-off is scheduled at 19:30 GMT.
