Tonight, Schalke will try to find a good Cup game and build up a form at a higher level if it possible. This, which they have presented till now is a far from what everyone expected if we know the strength of the team.
Magath will go hard on this game, he will not rest the players, this is a knockout system where defeated team kick out from competition, no second chance.
Schalke is disastrous on away games this season, have only one victory which they achieved against Freiburg and scored three minutes before the end, pretty lucky. This match they must play at a higher level if they want to win.
Frankfurt is the member of Zweita who didn't play a tie match, the last 10 matches they are without a single draw, lost or won. Stronger teams from Zweita beat them (Hertha and Aachen) and I see no reason why it would not do a Schalke who, along with Bayern Munich for years is the strongest team in Germany. There were some problems after the game this weekend where Schalke drew with Eintracht... Neur, Huntelaar, Jones and Schmitz were up late at night on the party but as Magath wanted to soften things said that all in the morning were on training . I expect these to be revenge for the tolerance he showed and that Magath said, he expected a response from them on the pitch ..
This would be a classic knock-out for Schalke to kick out from the second division team. Now, it's just a knockdown and they still have a chance to return. With this victory moral in the team will raise, the opponent is adequate, certainly they are a better and simply need to prove it tonight.
