Bundesliga Preview: Schalke - Bayern Munich


Manuel Neuer returns to his old stadium as two of the early Bundesliga pacemakers meet in a mouthwatering clash

Schalke (4-2-3-1): Fahrmann; Uchida, Howedes, Matip, Fuchs; Papadopoulos, Holtby; Farfan, Raul, Marica; Huntelaar

Schalke 04

Felix Magath is set to name an unchanged side from the team that kicked off their Europa Leage campaign with a disappointing 0-0 draw against Steaua Bucharest. Despite picking up an injury last weekend against Wolfsburg, Ralf Fahrmann started the midweek game and should be fine to keep his place.

Bayern Munich (4-2-3-1): Neuer; Rafinha, Badstuber, Boateng, Lahm; Schweinsteiger, Diaz; Muller, Kroos, Ribery, Petersen

Bayern Munich

Jupp Heynckes will have to cope with the loss of in-form striker Mario Gomez after the Germany international limped out of his side's 2-0 midweek victory over Villarreal. Nils Petersen is set to fill in for the former Stuttgart-man. Meanwhile, Arjen Robben is still struggling with a bone inflammation but should start.

  • Schalke beat Bayern Munich 2-0 in the corresponding fixture last season.

  • Klaas-Jan Huntelaar has scored 12 goals already this season - only one fewer than his total for all of last season.
  • Schalke skipper Benedikt Howedes is the youngest captain in the Bundesliga.
  • Bayern Munich have scored 16 goals this season - more than half the number Eintracht Frankfurk scored last campaign.
  • The Bavarian side were victorious here in 2009-10 thanks to Frank Ribery and Thomas Muller scoring goals within a minute of each other.
  • Mario Gomez' four-goal haul last Saturday ensured that the Germany striker's goal tally has reached double figures for the sixth successive season.
