Preview: Crystal Palace v Schalke 04

5 August 2017

Palace conclude their pre-season preparations by returning to Selhurst Park to take on Schalke 04 just seven days before the start of the 2017/18 Premier League campaign.

It will be the Eagles’ first outing in SE25 since they hammered Hull City 4-0 back in May to secure their place in the top-flight for a record-breaking fifth successive season, and will also mark Frank de Boer’s first appearance in the dugout at his new home.

Having won two and drawn one of their four friendlies to date, it has been an encouraging start to the Dutchman’s tenure and he’ll be aiming to make it three games unbeaten against the German giants to build up more momentum ahead of the visit of Huddersfield Town for Premier League action next week.

Schalke’s summer so far

Pre Season

10 Things You May Not Know About Schalke

3 August 2017

On the field things have been going well for Die Knappen, who have won six of their seven pre-season matches with the only blemish being a 1-1 draw against Inter Milan in China, where they also beat Besiktas 3-2.

Pre-season began with a 9-1 thrashing of SpVgg Erkenschwick, and last week saw them feature in Austria where they beat Azerbaijani outfit Neftci and Spanish side Eibar. The game against Palace will be their final match ahead of the Bundesliga opener against Red Bull Leipzig in two weeks’ time.

Transfer activity has also been promising for Schalke, who have spent big money on Nabil Bentaleb from Tottenham Hotspur and Ukrainian international Yevhen Konoplyanka who has already netted four times during the summer. Even better news is that they have managed to hold onto the services of hot prospects Max Meyer and Leon Goretzka despite interest from some of Europe’s biggest clubs.

Opposition view

After Schalke finished tenth in the Bundesliga last season, their lowest league position for seven years, they parted ways with head coach Markus Weinzierl but threw a curveball when it came to his replacement by appointing 31-year-old Domenico Tedesco in what is his first job as a head coach.

Ahead of the game against Palace, he said: “I'm looking forward to this game as it'll be a good test against a good opponent. Crystal Palace is a team which likes to attack quickly and which turns the play around quickly. It will be interesting to see how we react to that. I don't see this match as a final dress rehearsal though, as we're in a process which will go on and on.” 

Team news

De Boer once again has a full squad to select from, with Pape Souare and Connor Wickham the only long-term injuries. Having got 45 minutes against Metz last week, Jairo Reidewald is likely to get a longer run-out as he builds up his fitness ahead of the new season.

After starring for Germany in the FIFA Confederations Cup triumph in the summer, Goretzka suffered a muscle injury during training upon his return to his club side and won’t travel to south London. Skipper Benedikt Howedes is also working his way back to full fitness following a hip operation, while Alessandro Schöpf is out with a knee injury. However, Breel Embolo has returned after a lengthy lay-off with a broken ankle.

Watch out for

One of German football’s brightest talents, Meyer has been linked with moves to Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool this summer after he rejected Schalke’s offer of an improved deal, with his current terms due to expire at the end of the 2017/18 campaign.

He starred in the summer’s UEFA Under-21 European Championships where he played a key role in Germany’s success and was named in the Team of the Tournament. After helping their under-23 side to a silver medal in the 2016 Olympics, he won an additional three full caps having made his full international debut just before the 2014 World Cup.

Match Reports

Report: Crystal Palace 1-1 Schalke

5 August 2017

Palace’s extended their pre-season unbeaten run to three matches as they claimed a 1-1 draw against Schalke in Frank de Boer’s first game in the Selhurst dugout.

The Eagles trailed at the break when Pablo Insua netted just before half-time but Christian Benteke equalised on the hour mark with a header to keep the momentum building ahead of next week’s Premier League’s opener against Huddersfield Town.

The game was just two minutes old when Andros Townsend cut inside from the right and zipped a shot goalwards on his left foot but Ralf Fahrmann produced an overly-dramatic save to tip the ball over, and in a similar move 20 minutes later the same player fired straight at the German stopper as the hosts began the brighter.

Opportunities were few and far between in the first half, however Palace were handed a huge let-off after 27 minutes when Scott Dann played a pass back to Julian Speroni who struck his clearance straight at the charging Amine Harit and the ball spun goalwards, but the Eagles’ record appearance holder breathed a sigh of relief as he watched the ball flashed just wide.

He atoned for that error soon after when Thilo Kehrer aimed for the bottom corner from 20 yards out with an effort that skidded along the Selhurst turf but Speroni managed to push it around his post, but the British summer time showed its unpredictability as bright skies quickly gave way to a heavy rain shower that the players had to battle their way through until half-time.  

It seemed as though Palace were going to be the more likely to go into it ahead and nearly did so when Wilfried Zaha blasted at Fahrmann, but against the run of player the visitors grabbed the opening goal a minute before the break.

Driving forward through the rain, Bastian Oczipka whipped a cross in from the left and summer signing Insua got his head to it to transfer it back across goal, and despite getting a hand to it, Speroni couldn’t prevent it creeping into his net and handing Die Kanppen the half-time advantage.

It could have been worse for De Boer’s side as five minutes after the restart Weston McKennie clipped a lofted pass into the path of Nabil Bentaleb who volleyed over from just inside the box when the target was begging to be hit, and last season’s top scorer Guido Burgstaller then blasted an attempt wide as Schalke pressed for a second.

But just after the hour mark, the Eagles managed to get on the scoresheet themselves. Patrick van Aanholt slipped in Zaha who raced past Coke and crossed, and Fahrmann’s attempted punch was too weak and fell perfectly for Benteke to simply nod the ball into the empty net to equalise.

Having grabbed his first goal of pre-season, the Belgian could have doubled his tally with six minutes of the game remaining when Van Aanholt again threaded a pass through for the striker to race onto, but when he went one-on-one with Fahrmann the goalkeeper stayed big and blocked the effort, and ensured the spoils were shared.

Palace: Speroni, Milivojevic, Dann, Reidewald (Tomkins 81), Townsend (Ward 70), Puncheon, Loftus-Cheek, Van Aanholt, Zaha, Lokilo (Lee 79), Benteke. Subs not used: Hennessey, Schlupp, Husin, Ladapo.

Schalke: Fahrmann, Kehrer (Howedes 46), Stambouli (Goretzka 60), Naldo (Geis 60), Insua, Caligiuri, Bentaleb, Oczipka (Coke 60), Harit (Meyer 60), Burgstaller, Reece (McKinnie 46). Sub not used: Nubel.
