Next Match: away to Borussia M'gladbach, December 07
Europe: UEFA Champions League (Group E)
Jens Keller may not be the coach of Schalke going into the winter break, according to rumours in Germany. A 3-1 defeat to Hoffenheim in the German Cup Tuesday has increased the pressure on Keller, whose side must now beat Basel in the Champions League next week to remain in that competition going into 2014. Another disappointment like the one suffered against Hoffenheim could prove to be the final straw for club bosses. "It's incredibly hard for me to find an explanation," Keller said Tuesday. "Nobody did what we had planned."
