SC Schalke 04 – FC Augsburg
Roberto Di Matteo may only be two games into his tenure as Schalke coach but the pressure is on after a poor start by the Royal Blues.
Eleven points in nine games is their second worst points tally at this stage in the last 10 years.
Friday’s opponents Augsburg have become a solid mid-table outfit in the Bundesliga.
They are one point above Schalke coming into their game at the Veltins-Arena and will benefit from having Tobias Werner back from suspension.
Augsburg are unlikely to tamely roll over but Schalke will probably have a little too much, with the home win at 1.92
