Match preview

There are just two all-Bundesliga ties in the second round of the DFB-Pokal, one of which is this one in Sinsheim.

Hoffenheim almost suffered an embarrassing first round elimination, needing extra time to see off fourth-tier Rödinghausen.

Die Kraichgauer have been in the top-flight since 2008, but are aiming to reach the Pokal semi-finals for the first time ever.

Schalke meanwhile are five-times winners of this competition, most recently defeating Duisburg in the 2011 final.

This year, die Königsblauen are back in the Bundesliga, but sit second bottom of the table, with just one win to their name.

In fact, on Friday night, Schalke were demolished 3-0 by Hoffenheim; Robert Skov converted two penalties, with Mu’nas Dabbur also scoring.

So, a home win seems likely as the two meet again, this time at Rhein-Neckar-Arena.
