Norwich City will play the third and final match of their pre-season training camp in Germany when they take on Schalke this evening (5.30pm UK time) and you can follow all the action live with our reporters.

Daniel Farke's squad arrived in the North Rhine-Westphalia region last Friday and kicked pre-season into gear with a 2-2 draw against Bundesliga II side Arminia Bielfeld, thanks to goals from Dennis Srbeny and Josip Drmic.

They continued their Premier League preparation with a behind-closed-doors friendly against fourth-tier club SC Bonner on Tuesday night, thanks to an Adam Idah brace and a goal apiece for Onel Hernandez and Teemu Pukki.

The Canaries conclude their time in Germany with a step up in quality against Bundesliga opposition in Schalke, at the Frimo Stadion in Lotte, who are now managed by former Huddersfield boss David Wagner after a poor last campaign.

The Gelsenkirchen club were runners-up to Bayern Munich as recently as 2018 though and made it through to the last 16 of the Champions League last season, where they were thumped 10-2 on aggregate by Manchester City.
