Schalke once again addressed the most trophy-winning coach in its history, Huub Stevens, who temporarily took over the sinking ship, after the dismissal of coach Manuel Baum, who led the team in only 10 games. Stevens has the task of breaking an unprecedented series without a win in 28 matches in the Bundesliga, and a victory in the last game of the year against the relegation rival Arminia Bielefeld would be highly appreciated. Schalke have lost their last three at home and have not scored a single goal, while the visitors have found the net only three times throughout the season. In addition, they are playing in desperate form with 8 defeats in the last 9 duels, and the problems with injuries do not stop. Outside of the squad are Laursen, Maier, Voglsammer, Yabo, Nilsson, Behrendt, Pieper and Niemann. It’s finally time for Schalke’s first win, because Stevens is a great coach who knows how to regroup the team.
