FC St. Pauli VS Schalke 04 match analysis

I think both coaches, Holger Stanislawski from St. Pauli and Ralf Ragnick from Schalke will be satisfied with one point. St.Pauli is involved into the relegation battle and they need points. But we must be realistic, Schalke is much better team. I am sure there is a class difference between Schalke and St. Pauli. But lucky for the hosts, Schalke have an important match at Tuesday. They will play against Inter Milan in UEFA Champions League quarterfinal. In some other situation Schalke may sleep this game, but now they must play with full strength.The reason is simple, in case St.Pauli win here then the difference between them will be just two points. It is important to be mentioned that Schalke have new coach. Ralf Ragnick replaced Felix Magath and usually the teams started to play better under the new coach. The hosts are handicapped for this game, just as the visitors. St. Pauli will be without Moritz Volz, Carlos Sambrano, Bastian Oczipca and Fabian Boll. On other hand Schalke will be without injured goalscorer Klaas-Jan Huntelaar, Another player is doubtful - Hans Sarpei. At the end I will again say that the draw is very possible here. Schalke is better team, but they are inconsistent. Plus, coach Ragnick must think to the next game, against Inter at Tuesday. So, draw is my call.
