The match between Hannover 96 vs Schalke for the Germany Bundesliga II competition is scheduled to be played this Friday 15 October, 2021 at the HDI-Arena, in Hannover.
Home matches have not exactly been a fortress for Hannover in recent times and they have suffered four defeats in their previous five top-flight home matches. Coming to this match, Hannover have been in nil score in the recent matches with only one of their last 6 matches having ended with both teams scoring.

Schalke on the other hand have had a good performance in the previous outings having scored 11 goals in the previous 6 outing matches and have not failed to score in each of those outings and have been scored only 7 goals in that run.
Schalke come to this match on from a 3-0 Bundesliga 2 win with the defeat of Ingolstadt in their previous fixture. In that game, Schalke had 61% possession and 11 attempts at goal with 4 on target.
