By on December 12, 2014
Schalke 04 will host FC Koln this Saturday from 14:30 (UK Time), trying to continue their good run. The game is part of the 15th fixture in Germany Bundesliga and there are no doubts about the favorite team.
Schalke are starting with the first chance at bookmakers. They are coming after some good results and the most important was few days ago in Uefa Champions League. The home team won 1-0 at Maribor, securing their place in the last 16 round. Schalke have a long injury list, with Farfan, Draxler, Boateng, Goretzka, Matips, Obasi and Kolasinac missing the game.
FC Koln are a new-promoted team and their form is not an impressive one, with four defeats in the last five league games. The guests are now on the 12th position in Bundesliga, having 15 points in their account and a 14-20 goal difference. Koln have two points ahead of the relegation zone, their weakest point being the defence without any doubt. Patrick Helmes is the only missing player for the away team.
