Match Preview

Though yet to score at home in the first 30 minutes of play this season, Schalke 04 face Union Berlin in excellent form, after collecting the joint-highest points tally and the fewest league defeats across the last ten Bundesliga games (W6, D3, L1). Seven of these games featured over 2.5 match goals, and seven saw both teams score.
At home though, the hosts are on a somewhat frustrating run of three consecutive league draws with one being goalless. Schalke have scored the opener in the four home league games where they have managed to score this term, with three of those openers falling within the first half of play.
On a run of three consecutive league wins and four competitive wins, Union are the best Bundesliga team over the last five games (W4, L1). Three of their last four league wins came with a clean sheet, and all wins included a margin of one or two goals.
Though victorious in their last away league game, the visitors have struggled on hostile turf (W1, D1, L3). Union have also won just one of ten halves of league football across their previous five Bundesliga road trips, and they are yet to score inside the first 15 minutes of a Bundesliga away game.
Players to watch: Amine Harit has scored six league goals for Schalke this season. Half of his goals came in the 82nd minute or later.
Sebastian Andersson has netted six times for Union in the Bundesliga this season – five of them as either his side’s first or last goalscorer.
Stat attack: At home, Schalke have conceded seven of eight goals against after the break.
Union have opened the scoring in five Bundesliga games so far, going on to win all of them.
Only two of Union’s last five away league games have produced more than 2.5 goals.
