At home against Wolfsburg in the Bundesliga on Friday, Schalke 04 will be looking to snap a losing streak of five games. Meanwhile, the Wolves have lost their previous three games across all competitions and will be looking to redeem themselves.
Schalke remains at the bottom of the Bundesliga table despite playing FC Koln and Borussia Monchengladbach just to pick up scoreless draws in their most recent games, though head coach Thomas Reis is optimistic about the team.
The Königsblauen outshot their opponents in both games, totaling 36 shots combined without scoring, matching their season total for clean sheets despite only having done it in two of their first 17 games.
One of those occurred in an August 0-0 draw with Wolfsburg while Reis was still the manager of VfL Bochum. The 49-year-old will be determined to avoid defeat once more at the very least on Friday night, even though his team must start picking up victories right away if they are to escape their current predicament.
With only 15 games left in the season, his previous team’s triumph last weekend actually put Bochum in 15th place eight points ahead of Schalke. Due to their lower goal difference, even a victory against Wolfsburg would not be enough to get them off the bottom of the table, but it would be a big step in the right direction following two recent weeks of improving results and performances.

Wolfsburg, meanwhile, looked unbeatable under Niko Kovac after a six-game winning streak propelled them into the top four of the Bundesliga. However, the club has since lost three straight matches, allowing them to fall out of the DFB-Pokal and lose ground on the top four.
The Wolves still have a nasty bite to them as they scored in each of their three losses to Werder Bremen, Union Berlin, and defending champion Bayern Munich (4-2 at the Volkswagen Arena on Sunday).
Even though their recent meeting shows that all three points cannot be taken for granted, Kovac will be determined to see his squad win again against the bottom-division team on Friday after three games against top-half opponents.
