Schalke stand at the 5th position and their main goal this season is to finish the season in the Top 4 and play in the UEFA Champions League next season. Home side failed to win in the last two matches, so they will be fully motivated to beat Stuttgart. In the last Bundesliga match Mainz beat them 2-1, while three days ago they played against Shakhtar without goals in the first leg of 1/16 finals of the UEFA Europa League. The match against VfB Stuttgart will be their 3rd match in the last few days and without any doubt Schalke 04 are very tired, but they have to take at least one point in order to stay in a race for the Top 4 position.

VfB Stuttgart were in the relegation zone in the first half of the season and one of the main candidates to leave Bundesliga, but they have improved their performance and started the second half of the season great with 4 consecutive Bundesliga wins. Meanwhile, they lost against Borussia Dortmund 1-3 in the Quarter-finals of German Cup, but their main goal is to stay in league. Schalke beat them in the first half of the season when Stuttgart were a host, so they will be fully motivated to revenge them. Visitors are playing very offensive football. In the last five league matches they scored on each game at least two goals and will be very dangerous for home side.
