The Gelsenkirchen-based club extended their Bundesliga-winning streak to 30 games, taking into account last season’s games.
The last victory was won on January 17, 2020 in the game against Borussia Mönchengladbach (2: 0). After that, Schalke suffered 20 defeats in the championship and 10 games brought to a draw.
The club continues to rank last in the Bundesliga with four points. The gap from Mainz (match in reserve) is two points, from Arminia, which is 16th, – six points.
This fall, Schalke dismissed David Wagner as head coach. He was succeeded by Manuel Baum, who was fired on December 16. The team was then coached by Hub Stevens, and at the end of December it was led by Christian Gross.
