Hamburg vs Schalke match preview:

The new 2. Bundesliga season gets underway on Friday with two teams who will have had hopes of being in the top flight for 2023/24. Schalke suffered relegation to the 2. Bundesliga in 2021 but their second-tier stay only lasted one campaign, earning immediate promotion. However, their return to the Bundesliga was also short-lived as Schalke won just seven of their 34 league games last season, finishing 17th and dropping back into the second tier. It’s been a bit of a busy summer for Schalke in preparation for their 2. Bundesliga campaign with six new faces coming in including goalkeeper Marius Muller. But they’ve needed the new names as Schalke have said goodbye to 21 players over the summer, though nine of those were loanees returning to their parent clubs.

Hamburg, meanwhile, had done so well in the 2. Bundesliga last season and finished third, just one point off top spot and the automatic promotion places. A three-match winning run at the end of the campaign was not enough for Hamburg to overtake Heidenheim or Darmstadt, so they were left for the promotion/relegation play-offs to find out their destiny. And that was no contest really with Hamburg beaten 6-1 across the two legs by Stuttgart who maintained their place in the Bundesliga. There have been five new arrivals including Levin Oztunali who has dropped down from the Bundesliga and Union Berlin, while Maximilian Rohr is among the seven departures.
