You can’t start breaking down Schalke without first talking about how many injuries they’ve suffered so far this season. Every member of the ideal first 11 has missed time due to injury, and some of them are still out. It’s made them light in some areas, particularly center midfield and defence, where Roman Neustaedter is just returning from some time off and Kevin Prince-Boateng has been ineffective and 3/4 of their starting backline will miss out due to injury.
They’ve also suffered from a lack of goal-scoring, particularly because, once again, they’ve had players missing due to injury and a sharp lack of form. Julian Draxler and Max Meyer haven’t replicated the form of last year, Sidney Sam was brought in to inject pace to the side, but hasn’t been able to do so, and Klaas-Jan Huntelaar has missed time with injury.
It’s really hurt their ability to create chances, and when coupled with the injuries to their back line, it’s not hard to see why they’ve struggled in the Bundesliga.
