Schalke vs Hamburger: Tips and prediction – 20.12.2014

By on December 18, 2014
One of the most exciting games of Saturday in Germany Bundesliga will take place at 14:30 (UK Time) and will put face to face Schalke and Hamburger, two teams with an important history behind them.
Schalke 04 are starting in pole-position at bookmakers and they are much stronger at first view. The hosts are coming after five fixtures with four wins so they are back in business. After 16 games played, Schalke are on the 5th position, with a total of 26 points and a 28-21 goal difference, being very strong at home, with 17 points out of 24. Draxler and Boateng are still injured and so are Obasi, Matip, Goretzka, Kolasinac and Farfan.
Hamburger have not impressed this campaign and they ticked only one victory in eight away league games. Van der Vaart is suspended and he will miss the match, while Beister, Jansen, Westermann, Adler and Lasogga are all injured. Hamburg have 16 point in their account at the moment and an unimpressive goal difference of 9-19, being the team with the worst attack in Bundesliga. 
Schalke 04 vs Hamburger probable lineups:
Schalke (3-4-1-2): Fahrmann – Howedes, Kirchoff, Neustadter – Uchida, Barnetta, Aogo, Fuchs – Meyer – Moting, Huntelaar.
Hamburger (4-2-3-1): Drobny – Diekmeier, Djourou, Cleber, Ostrzolek – Behrami, Jiracek – Muller, Holtby, Gouaida – Rudnevs.
