This was the last thing coach David Wagner drew on , but meanwhile the unrest is growing. Of course, the injuries are dramatic, after all, Suat Serdar and Amine Harit are the most dangerous players.

We all have to do things better. ”

Best on Saturday *. ”Then Schalke plays against relegation candidate Werder Bremen * .
