SCHALKE have become a shambles and bulleting their manager two games into the Bundesliga campaign is unlikely to provide a quick fix.
Former Huddersfield boss David Wagner was axed after back-to-back defeats – including an 8-0 annihilation at Bayern Munich – left Schalke rock bottom of the table.
Manuel Baum, the ex-Augsburg manager, has been drafted in as replacement and faces a tough opening assignment away to Leipzig.
Julian Nagelsmann's side followed up their opening 3-1 home win over Mainz with a point at Leverkusen and look good to win by at least two goals against a side bereft of belief. Back Leipzig -1 at 8-11 with Paddy Power.
In Italy, newly-promoted Crotone have struggled to adapt to life in the top flight, losing two out of two and shipping six goals. Sassuolo, who thumped Spezia 4-1 on the road last weekend, can take the points and net 2+ at 8-13 with Betway.
Complete the treble in the Austrian Bundesliga where two goal-happy clubs collide when bottom side Admira host Ried. Both have played three matches and have a 100% record for over 2.5 goals, with same again paying 8-11 at Betfred.
- Sassuolo win & over 1.5 goals (2pm)
- Admira v Ried over 2.5 goals (4pm)
