Match Preview

  • Schalke are winless in eight Bundesliga matches ahead of kick-off (D4, L4), with each draw seeing them maintain a clean sheet up to (at least) the hour mark. Remarkably – if excluding penalty goals – that has also been the case in every one of Schalke’s 11 home league matches to be won or drawn this term.
  • That said, Schalke have conceded an average of 2.0 goals per-match beyond the hour mark across their last three Bundesliga home fixtures. In turn, Schalke have now drawn most of their home league games (W5, D6, L2), scoring first but conceding next (in the second half) in the five score draws therein.
  • With a league record of W1, D1, L7 so far this calendar year, Augsburg are in freefall. They make the journey to Gelsenkirchen after conceding a per-match average of 3.0 goals across those defeats. They were not porous from the start though, letting in just one goal before the half-hour mark within those same seven losses.
  • Augsburg also travel after five straight Bundesliga away defeats (GF 1, GA 14). Second-half collapses are a theme within them, as four of the losses saw Augsburg lose the second-half by a 2+ goal margin.
  • Players to watch: Weston McKennie gave Schalke a half-time lead in their last home game (D 1-1), and both of his prior senior Bundesliga goals have been match openers.
  • Augsburg midfielder Daniel Baier’s last three career goals have come against Schalke, each being the first or last in matches seeing both teams score.
  • Stat attack: Nine of the last 11 Bundesliga H2Hs have produced the same points distribution at HT and FT.
  • Four of Schalke’s last five Bundesliga score draws at home have seen the opposition’s first equaliser arrive beyond the hour mark.
  • Augsburg last drew level after going behind at any time in a Bundesliga away game back in September 2019.
