Schalke 04 vs Borussia Dortmund Match Preview
Schalke, after losing three league matches lost against Lyon, 1-0. This could have been avoided had Benedikt Howedes not gotten sent off twice in the space of four matches. Magath said that “he can live” with the loss against Lyon. Schalke are desperate for points while Dortmund has six to their name. A good way for Schalke to start getting points is by defeating Dortmund.
When Raul arrived at Schalke, one of the first things he was told was that the team has to defeat Dortmund no matter what. It is time that Raul starts scoring. Huntelaar, despite not scoring, had a good debut and might get on the score sheet. This derby looks to be the match of the week and perhaps has plenty of goals in it.
