Players to watch:
- Schalke: Often when a team is relegated, their starting XI on the first day of the next season looks so different, having undergone a max exodus. That is the case for Schalke too, but they also have some new faces in their squad including Simon Terodde. The 33-year-old centre-forward joined Schalke on a one-year deal from Hamburg, whom he represented in 2. Bundesliga last season, and replaces the likes of Klaas-Jan Huntelaar and Steven Skrzybski who left this summer. Terrode is one for Germany’s second tier, having netted 142 goals in 253 2. Bundesliga appearances across his career, including 24 last season with only Serdar Dursun (27) managing more across the division. Although it is only pre-season, Terodde has started his Schalke spell brightly, scoring a hat-trick in their 8-0 win against PSV Wesel-Hackhausen and another trio in the 14-0 win over Hamborn 07.
- Zenit: While a lot of Brazilian players are either with the national team trying to win Copa America, or planning for the Olympics, Malcom will be preparing for the first game of Zenit’s pre-season ahead of his third campaign in Russia. Malcom had a tough first season with Zenit, after joining from Barcelona, playing just 12 league matches due to a hip injury but still managed to score four goals. Last season wasn’t much better for the Brazilian as he once again suffered with injuries, but managed to score three goals and record three assists in 21 league games including 20 starts. Malcom had actually been named in the initial Brazil squad for the Olympics in Tokyo which is set to get underway later this month, but had to drop out as Zenit refused to allow him, Pedro and Gerson leave for the tournament. They’ll be hoping it pays off, as Malcom looks to finally find his feet at the Russian club.
