The start of the season in the Bundesliga is only a month away. At FC Schalke 04, however, preparations are already in full swing.
Today the Royal Blues are playing their second test match at TuS Blau-Weiss Lohne under new coach Frank Kramer. sport.de accompanies the game from 3:30 p.m at this point in the live ticker.
+++ The line-up of FC Schalke 04 is out! +++
In the meantime, S04 has announced the line-up with which the team will go into the second test game of the season. This is the starting eleven of the newly promoted Bundesliga team: Heekeren – Aydin, Cissé, Pálsson, Ouwejan – Krauß, Latza, Mollet, Zalazar – Terodde, Polter.
+++ Victory for FC Schalke 04 in the first test +++
While some teams from the Bundesliga are only now starting their preparations, FC Schalke 04 already have the first friendly in their bones.
On Wednesday, the Kramer team clearly beat the district league club VfB Hüls 14:0.
At times there was already a team on the pitch that came close to the best line-up. Scorer Simon Terodde alone contributed six goals against the outsider.
+++ Bigger hurdle for FC Schalke 04 +++
After the start against a clearly inferior opponent, FC Schalke 04 is testing against a fourth division team in the second game of their preparation.
TuS Blau-Weiss Lohne has recently been promoted to the Regionalliga Nord. The pace should therefore be a little higher for the guest game in the Heinz-Dettmer-Stadion.
The really intensive phase for the miners only starts in the training camp in Mittersill, Austria. Three real endurance tests are waiting there with US Salernitana (July 13), Udinese Calcio (July 17) and Twente Enschede (July 22).
