Schalke 04 stand at the 5th position with only one point less than their opponent. Home side have an ambition to finish the season in the Top 4 and play in the UEFA Champions League next season, but visitors want the same. Home side lost in the previous round against Hertha Berlin, after two consecutive wins. Their form is not impressive, only two wins in their last eight matches in all competitions, but this game is very important for them against the direct candidate for the Champions League place. Their defence is not at the high level, especially in the recent period. In the last three games, Schalke conceded on every game two goals. Big blow for tome team will be the absence of their important defender Junior Caicara, who is out due to suspension.

Borussia Monchengladbach have one point more than Schalke and their main goal is to keep the distance and finish in the Top 4 at the end of the season. Visitors are playing good upfront their supporters and they are one of the best home teams in Bundesliga, but their away performance is not at the high level. They have managed to win only three matches away from home. The match against Schalke is very important for them, maybe one of the crucial, in their fight to keep the 4th position and they will do their best in order to avoid defeat. Borussia scored many goals, but on the other side their defence is very shaky and they are conceding many goals. They also have problems with absences and for this game they will be without 5 defenders. True, they are not all important, but it could cause many problems for them.
