Schalke continue their preparations for the new 2. Bundesliga season with a friendly against FC Twente.
It’s been a bit of a rocky summer for Schalke who are still without a shirt sponsor, so have been played with their name on the front of their kits. To make matters worse they were relegated from the Bundesliga last season, finishing three points from safety with just seven wins in 34 games.
FC Twente, meanwhile, return to competitive football next week with the second qualifying round of the Europa Conference League against Hammarby.

Schalke team news
Schalke have a much-changed squad from last season, with 12 players saying goodbye including Maya Yoshida, Amine Harit and Rodrigo Zalazar — and that’s not including the loanees who returned to their parent clubs. But there are four new faces in Ron Schallenberg, Paul Seguin, Lino Tempelmann and Maris Muller, the latter a goalkeeper from Luzern. Simon Terodde has been named as new captain for Schalke, stepping up from his vice role last season with Danny Latza dropping the armband.
FC Twente team news
Over the summer, FC Twente have said goodbye to forward Vaclav Cerny, who joined Wolfsburg, but he has been replaced by Younes Taha and Manfred Ugalde. Of course, Twente do still have Ricky van Wolfswinkel leading the line and the former Norwich striker has been in decent form in pre-season, netting in the 3-1 win over PEC Zwolle.
