Date: on the 19th of December, 2018 (Wednesday)
Match start: 18:30 (GMT+1)
On Wednesday in frames of the 16th round of German Bundesliga Schalke will host Bayer Leverkusen.
Both these German football clubs are obviously losing this season in Bundesliga.
Nevertheless both clubs have confidently passed into the spring part of Eurocups.
This fact helps to put a positive spin on the terrible results of the teams. Schalke after the amazing victory over Nürnberg has got in terrible situation.
After that win the football players of Domenico Tedesko in 3 matches have earned only 2 points, having tied with Hoffenheim and Augsburg and having lost in Rurh derby to Borussia Dortmund.
Schalke is only 3 points ahead of the relegation zone and is 8 points behind the first top-6.
If now the team continues this tendency, than the future Eurocup season will be held without the team.
The same situation is also with Bayer if we speak about Bundesliga.
On week-end the team has lost in Frankfurt to strong Eintracht and is taking now the 11th line.
The defeat to the Eagles has broken the series of 3 matches winning streak in a row. Bayer has won over Stuttgart and Augsburg and tied with Nürnberg.
The defeat in this match may absolutely ruin all Eurocups ambitions of one of these teams and that is why both clubs will do their best to win.
