0-4! This season, the first team to change coaches in the top five European leagues lost again and suffered three consecutive defeats. The Bundesliga powerhouse is currently the worst team in the top five European leagues, and none of them. After replacing Wagner, they hired Baum, the former head coach of the German U18 team, but the bad state did not improve.
In the 4th round of the Bundesliga this morning, Schalke 04 lost again 0-4 away in the away game and was washed by the powerful Leipzig Red Bull with 4 goals. Although it is not as unsightly as the 0-8 defeat of Bayern in the first round, but with a large loss in a row, Schalke 04 feels like it can't support the wall with mud. They continued to slide towards the abyss of the German Second Division. Not only did he lose all of the games after the 3 rounds, he also ranked first in Europe with 15 goals conceded. He averaged 5 goals per game. His "minimum consumption" obviously exceeded that of the other 97 teams in the top five leagues.
In the 0-4 loss to Leipzig, Schalke 04 lost 3 goals in the first half, and the main goalkeeper Fellman was replaced by Baum after the first half, which also declared that Fellman's main position was completely lost. Of course, a goalkeeper can't change the fate of Schalke 04. After Schalke 04 lost another goal in the second half, he really achieved Schalke 04! After 0-8, 1-3, 0-4, 3 rounds, Schalke 04 scored 1 goal and lost 15 goals to continue to be at the bottom of the Bundesliga. The same three-game losing streak Cologne and Mainz looked better than him.
The coaching change did not play a role in stopping losses quickly. Schalke 04 not only lost madly in the score, but only 5 shots and 1 hit the goal frame in the game, and the ball possession rate was only 30%. In the first 3 rounds, 15 goals lost and a goal difference of -14, both set the worst record in team history. Previously, the relegation season of Hamburg, Stuttgart, Hannover 96 and other Bundesliga teams did not start so "tragically". According to the current situation, Schalke 04 not only faces relegation, but may also become the team with the worst record in the five major leagues this season.
Since the beginning of this year, including the last season, they have played 20 Bundesliga games, 19 consecutive games without winning, which is another shameful record in team history. 1 win, 6 draws and 14 losses, the new season started 3 consecutive "disastrous defeats", where is the fate of Schalke 04? The Bundesliga is calling, and what is worse is that they have no way to struggle. In the next round, if they can't "show" in the joint match with Berlin, they will have a "Rurdby" with Dortmund in the fifth round of the Bundesliga, and the relegation situation is already in danger.
Do you think Schalke 04 this season can be saved?
