Schalke 04 take on the visitors VfB Stuttgart at "Veltins-Arena" in the matchday three of the German Bundesliga. The game will be played in Gelsenkirchen on Sunday, September 10th.
Schalke 04 entered the new season with two victories: 2:0 over BFC Dynamo in the DFB Pokal and 2:0 over RB Leipzig in the Bundesliga. Before the break for the national teams clashes Schalke 04 had lost 0:1 to Hannover on the road. The hosting club has strong roster but the team demonstrates high-class football from time to time which doesn't allow it to sit among the leaders of the Bundesliga.

VfB Stuttgart have just returned to the German elite division, demonstrating the identical results to the ones of Schalke 04 after three rounds played: 3:2 victory over Energie Cottbus in the DFB Pokal, 0:2 defeat from Hertha BSC and 1:0 triumph over 1. FSV Mainz 05 in the Bundesliga. "Die Schwaben" squad allows the team to settle comfortably at least in the middle of the table of the Bundesliga.
Schalke 04 have won three times with a draw earned in recent four head-to-heads against VfB Stuttgart. Evgen Konoplyanka's side will play the forthcoming clash at its home ground and it is more well-balanced in terms of players with being relegated from the Bundesliga long time ago unlike the visiting team, therefore, the hosts’ triumph would be the logical outcome of the fight. VfB Stuttgart need to learn few more lessons in the away battles in this season in order to get used to perform on the top level after a year staying in the 2. Bundesliga where the team felt quite comfortably.
Prediction for the match: Schalke 04 to win.
