Schalke collect 30 points in the Bundesliga round, so the minnows are in second place, equal to their eternal rival BVB. Only the goal-scoring league separates the Schalkers from a Champions League place. The development that the team has taken under coach Wagner cannot be overlooked. Former problem pros (Amine Harit) and stamped transfer flops (Omar Mascarell and Suat Serdar) are pletzlich-wearing sauls of the team and flaunt their role glunn. Where does the konigsblaue path in the rack round go? The closing test can be a finger pointing.

HSV launches test matches

Unlike FC Schalke, Hamburger SV still has some time to prepare for the second division. Fer the former Bundesliga dino gets serious again on 29.01. against 1. FC Nuremberg. Before that, the Rothosen also test against FC Basel and VfB Lonbeck.
