After their first loss in 5 league games last week, Hamburger will be looking to bounce back to winning ways when they host Schalke at the Volksparkstadion in the 16th round of the Bundesliga.
Hamburg have been very poor since the start of the season. The team stayed in the relegation zone for the majority of the campaign. However, they managed to get a positive run of results in recent weeks as they have stayed unbeaten in 4 straight games before losing to Mainz away from home in their last game that finished 3-1.
The hosts are sitting in 16th place in the league table with 10 points from 2 wins, 4 draws and 9 losses. They have scored 12 goals and conceded 30 since the start of the season.
Center back and captain Johan Djourou will be out for the hosts due to suspension. Alen Halilovic, Cleber Reis and Rene Adler are all in doubt due to injuries.
The visitors are in a much better situation in terms of league position. However their form have dropped in recent weeks as Schalke failed to win in their last 3 games. The team have collected just one point from a possible 9 in that same period as they drew their last game to Freiburg at home 1-1.
Schalke are sitting in 11th place in the league table with 18 points from 5 wins, 3 draws and 7 losses. They scored 19 goals and conceded 17 since the start of the season.
