The title race in the Bundesliga continues this weekend, as Bayern Munich look to stretch their advantage at the top of the standings. The German giants currently sit just one point clear of Borussia Dortmund at the summit, but they could take a huge stride toward defending their title with maximum points this weekend, if results also go their way elsewhere.
Bayer Munich has rediscovered their consistency in recent weeks, as they come into this fixture looking to record a third straight success. The German champions were excellent defensively last weekend, as they managed to hold on to a 2-1 away win against Werder Bremen. The goals in the success for the Bavarian club were scored in the second half by Serge Gnabry and Leroy Sane.
Schalke will also be battling for vital points in the Bundesliga this weekend, as they look to maintain their cushion over the bottom three places. They come into this match in positive recent form after winning three of their last four matches. That includes a run of two straight victories in their previous two matches in the Bundesliga.
Schalke battled extremely well in their previous fixture in the Bundesliga, as they managed to secure a dramatic 3-2 win on the road against Mainz. The winning goal in that success was scored in the 12th minute of injury time, with Marius Butler scoring his second goal of the game. The other effort in the success was netted by Tim Kraus after the hour mark.
