FC Schalke 04 – 1. FC Union Berlin: The most important information about the game
1. FC Union Berlin competes today (6 p.m.) at Schalke 04 in front of a mini-backdrop. Because of the corona pandemic, there are only 300 spectators. Schalke also gave the tickets to employees in systemically relevant professions.
INITIAL SITUATION: Before the international break, Union won 4-0 against 1. FSV Mainz 05 and thus higher than ever in the Bundesliga. With ninth place, the iron got a single-digit place in the table for the first time in their short all-German first division history. Schalke is under pressure as the bottom of the table with no points and after 19 Bundesliga games without a win in a row.
Union Berlin: is Loris Karius making his debut?
PERSONAL: In the game at Schalke 04, central defender Nico Schlotterbeck (hamstring torn thigh) and attacker Anthony Ujah (persistent knee problems) cannot be present. The outcome of the goalkeeper question will be exciting. It is unclear whether Andreas Luthe, the previous number one, or the Liverpool goalkeeper Loris Karius will be allowed between the posts. For Karius it would be the first Bundesliga game since his former club Mainz went 0-0 against Hertha BSC on May 14, 2016.
QUOTE: Trainer Urs Fischer: “Schalke really have a good squad. It will be a very difficult away game. It is important that we focus on ourselves. I think we are challenged.”
SPECIAL: Both teams faced each other in the 2001 DFB Cup final, which Schalke won 2-0 against the then third division Union. With Steven Skrzybski, a long-time Unioner is in the host’s squad. Skrzybski played for the Iron from late 2000 to 2018.
