Schalke 04 vs Borussia Monchengladbach Team News

This Schalke team have been caught up in the draw trap for the second time in a row. Last time out in the league, they had league minnows Freiburg to contend but were unable to see off Christian Streich's side, even at the Veltins Arena.

Hassling and harrying for large parts of the game, the home side could only muster a hard-fought 2-2 draw against Freiburg. That disappointing draw has left Die Konigsblauen in the lurch.

Now, against high-flying Monchengladbach, David Wagner will be looking to set the record straight with a commanding victory over the Prussians. Following back-to-back draws in the league, it is only right that Schalke returns to winning ways in this fixture.

Borussia Monchengladbach, on the other hand, were held to a frustrating goalless draw against Hertha Berlin last time out on the road. The traveling supporters looked in fine voice for the earlier parts of the game but were left disappointed as they headed back home.

However, they wouldn't care so much about the draw, given that their side still stand a very good chance of lifting the league trophy come the end of the season. Two points shy of the league summit, surely that's not a mountain to climb!

Though, the visitors have managed three wins from their previous five league games, their form on the road have come in for serious scrutiny. Monchengladbach have admitted defeat in three of their last eight away games - three of those defeats coming within their past five trips on the road.

For this fixture, Schalke 04 will be hoping to use the home advantage to maximum effect. They have been pretty solid at the Veltins Arena this season and will fancy getting another impressive result in front of the home crowd.

Injured or Suspended Players:

Schalke: Weston McKennie, Benjamin Stambouli, Salif Sané, Alexander Nübel, Nabil Bentaleb.

Monchengladbach: Ramy Bensebaini.

Schalke vs Monchengladbach Predictions

The Royal Blues are unbeaten in their last eight games on this ground. However, it is worth noting that four of these games had ended in frustrating draws. As such, the Veltins Arena cannot be regarded as that much of a fortress, can it?

Despite the away handicap, Monchengladbach have to be considered favourites to come away with the win. Surely, Die Fohlen will want to keep their title challenge going and for that, a win against this Schalke team is paramount.

Expect an exciting game between these two sides on Friday with Monchengladbach edging out 5th place Schalke 04 by a lone-goal.
