The stopper will be making his first Bundesliga start following Luthe’s absence.

Liverpool

loanee and

Union Berlin

goalkeeper,

Loris Karius

, is expected to make his first Bundesliga start against

Schalke

after missing the chance to be included in their starting XI since 2016.

The 27-year-old, who will be replacing

Andreas Luthe

for their upcoming match, has had a brief action against teams like

DFB-Pokal

,

SC Paderborn 07

,

Borussia Mönchengladbach

this season.

Following their match against Gladbach, Karius said:

"I actually clearly see myself settling into goal here. I came in a bit late and Andi had the positions secured after a couple of matches. I'm still confident I'll get my assignments."

Union Berlin manager, Fischer, confirmed the news on Thursday as he ruled out the return of

Max Kruse

and

Sherlado Becker

.
