Schalke are placed dead last in the table, and are already relegated. They have been the absolute worst team this whole season in the German top flight. Koln, who are desperate for a victory to avoid relegation, are considered to be the favorites this Saturday at their home.
Long before itself Schalke had ensured the 18th spot in a table of 18. They have posted a total of 16 points so far from their 33 games, and have conceded the most.
In fact, they had lost 23 of their 33 matches till now, and have a total of just three wins all through this campaign. Do also note that they had let in a total of 85 goals so far, which is 25 goals more than the next worst record.
