Fantasy Football Tips

Captain Options

Krzysztof Piatek – The Polish international has 7 goals and 1 assist in the league this season. He has attempted 18 shots on target in 17 starts as well. Piatek is a very dynamic forward and will be a threat to Schalke throughout. He also opened the scoring against Freiburg in their game 3 days ago.

Amine Harit – Harit has been quite creative for Schalke this season. He has a goal and 5 assists in the league this season, creating 50 chances. Harit has also completed 82 successful dribbles at a 64% completion rate while whipping in 22 accurate crosses at a 33% accuracy.

Differential Pick

Nemanja Radonjic – Loanee, Radonjic has just been a great addition to this team. He bagged a goal and assist during Berlin’s 3-0 win over SC Freiburg as he was named man of the match. He will look to impress both, Hertha and his parent club, Marseille with strong performances from now to the end of the season.

SCH vs HER Dream 11 Teams

Goalkeeper – Fahrmann
Defenders – Boyata, Pekarik, Torunarigha
Midfielders – Tousart, Darida, Harit (VC), Serdar
Forwards – Huntelaar, Radonjic, Piatek (C)

Likely Winner:

This game will be everything for Hertha with Schalke having nothing to play for. The away side finally has the chance to put some distance between them and the likes of Werder Bremen, Arminia Bielefeld and Augsburg. The SCH vs HER Today Match Prediction should be a win for the Berliners with Schalke having won just 2 games all season, having lost 22 times. Players like Piatek, Radonjic and Darida should be fired up and will look to make life very hard for Schalke.
