giving up the early goal was worst case scenario for Schalke, Augburg will be happy to just sit back and absorb now, it's not like Schalke have a lot of lock pickers.

that may be Schalke's best hope, trying to spring Matondo, that was a really nice run and effort.

Exactly right, creating chances is one of the things they're worst at. Struggling like mad to get anything going.

My word, Schalke are beyond tragic. Relegation battle again next season if they don't invest big time and they keep Wagner.

As a stoopid yank I want to rate Weston McKennie.....but he really struggles to pass the ball further than a couple yards.  Schalke as a whole have been diabolical but the last two performances have been poor from McKennie.

Schalke could've played for 10 hours and not even stretched the Augsburg goalkeeper.

Forget the defence, look at what they've got going the other way. They've scored 2 goals in 8 games and even 1 of them was against Paderborn. Wagner cannot coach attacking football at all. They're mighty fortunate they scraped some results before the Winterpause.

That's true, Schalke were awful before the lockdown.

I forgot this was on as was watching the Bielefeld match which was poor, switched over for the last few minutes.

Said in another thread last night that 3 teams had won at home since the resumption of the Bundesliga. Not sure there is much in this pitch measurement malarkey.

Bayern, Dortmund & Hertha Berlin.  Mainz currently trailing at home to Leipzig and David Wagner's Schalke have just 3-0 at home to Augsburg having had 72% of the ball.

Looks like the better teams are finding it easier regardless of home or away status, which is good news for us.

This was always going to be the case without a crowd. I'm not sure why the anti-neutral venue brigade have never understood this

Yep. You've no crowd noise, no cumulative fatigue has built up from sides who have to play every 3 days and a similar level of fitness. Therefore, the difference maker will always be skill and talent.

Poulsen with a shocking miss. Should be 0-3

Unless your tactics are spot on, which unless you've built up a level of necessary fitness, is going to be a problem.

We are going to go from around 100 points to a 108-114 point team, the only game we could possibly lose or draw is Man City   ;D
