Schalke 04 v FC Augsburg: Preview

Schalke need to put their Champions League joy behind them and focus on making up for lost time in the Bundesliga when they host Augsburg on Saturday.

The Royal Blues won their second group fixture in Europe's elite club competition, snatching a 1-0 win at Basle, but they remain well off the pace in the Bundesliga and two points behind their opponents from Bavaria after seven games of the season.

Remedying that and picking up a first win in three league games is their priority, with goalkeeper Timo Hildebrand asking his team mates to replicate their European form on the domestic stage.

``We're still showing two faces too much,'' he said. ``It was our good one again in Basle with the team defending well, like on the other occasions on which we kept a clean sheet.''

A similarly strong defensive performance will be required to get the better of Markus Weinzierl's men and director of sport Horst Heldt hopes the penny has now dropped.

``If you keep your concentration for the entire game, then you are successful,'' he said on his club's website, referring to his side's collapse after leading 3-1 at Hoffenheim last weekend and returning with just a point.

``I hope everybody has now understood that and that we will put it into practice against Augsburg.''

Given the way the Schalke players spoke after victory in Switzerland, it looks like Heldt will not be disappointed.

``We've got to make sure we don't take the (Augsburg) game lightly,'' warned match-winner Julian Draxler. ``We've got to show the same engagement in the league.

``At home, we've got to get three points so that we don't lose touch with the upper regions of the league.''

They will have to do that without the injured Jefferson Farfan, who has been ruled out for a month with an adductor injury, joining Klaas-Jan Huntelaar on the sidelines.

Raul Bobadilla is still unavailable for Augsburg after picking up an injury on his debut a few weeks ago, but the former Basle forward is back in training and hopes to return to action soon.

``I'm feeling good and I'm looking forward to training with the team again next week,'' he said on his club's website.

``I'm pleased with the way we are playing so far and where we are right now. Now we've got to keep our feet on the ground and carry on the way we've been doing up to now.''
