Hansa will face Rostock in the Bundesliga on Saturday, leaving Schalke behind to face Karlsruhe.
Admitted in the opening minutes of the game, the Royal Blues came back good against Karlsruhe, but played the last 20 minutes or more with 10 men.
The screams of Marvin Wanitzek won the match for Karlsruhe and brought them their third defeat of the season.
Dimitrios Grammozis’ team needs to bounce fast because they are 11th in the table, and can’t drop many points.
Hansa Rostock also lost their last campaign against Nuremberg and will look to perform more efficiently in front of the goal.
