Team News

  • Marcin Kaminski should replace the injured Holger Badstuber at centre-back.
  • Manager Hannes Wolf could also switch to a 3-4-3 here and field an additional defender in Andreas Beck for more stability at the back.
  • If Mario Gomez does not recover from a minor injury in time, Daniel Ginczek will get a chance up front.
  • Benjamin Stambouli challenges Thilo Kehrer for his spot in the back-three.
  • Leon Goretzka has recovered from injury and could get another chance in the starting XI.
  • Marko Pjaca is expected to start alongside Guido Burgstaller again.


  • Stuttgart have lost five of their last six league games and sit only four points above the relegation play-off spot. Their only two home defeats this season came to Leverkusen and Bayern and they will face another strong team at the Mercedes-Benz-Arena here.
  • Schalke have struggled recently, winning only one of their last seven matches. They have to be more creative in midfield again to break down a more defensive-minded Stuttgart side.
  • Expect this to be an intense game from the outset.
