Schalke is in fifth place in the standings with 41 points or just 1 behind today´s opponent and places entitling participation in the Champions League, which is their goal. In the last round they lost 0-2 in the derby with Hertha Berlin, which cut their series of 3 consecutive matches without defeat. Home experiencing many problems in defensive after goals conceded five goals in their last two matches - 3-2 against Hamburg and 0-3 against Shakhtar Donetsk. Borussia again performed very strongly recently and their position in the top 4 is fully deserved. In the last round won 3-0 against Frankfurt, which was their third victory in recent 5 rounds (1-0 against Cologne and 4-0 against Stuttgart) in this period had only one defeat 1-2 by Wolfsburg so we expect an interesting and effective derby.
