Team News

  • With Serdar Tasci suspended, Maza will get another chance at centre-back.
  • Arthur Boka and Cristian Molinaro compete for the spot at left-back.
  • William Kvist could return from injury to start instead of Raphael Holzhäuser or Zdravko Kuzmanovic.
  • Shinji Okazaki and Ibrahima Traoré compete for the spot on the left wing.
  • With Kyriakos Papadopoulos not 100% fit, Joel Matip and Christoph Metzelder compete for a spot at centre-back.
  • Julian Draxler and Tranquillo Barnetta compete for the spot on the left wing, with Ibrahim Afellay still doubtful for the game.
  • Lewis Holtby and Klaas Jan Huntelaar will return to the first eleven, after being rested in the Champions League.

Prediction

  • Stuttgart have won their last two games against teams from the relegation zone, but they need to improve again to have a chance against Schalke.
  • Schalke have rested several players in the Champions League during the week, to improve their chances of a Bundesliga win, after four games in a row without a victory.
  • Expect this to be a close and competitive game from the start.
