Struggling Schalke welcome Bayer Leverkusen to the Veltins-Arena in Bundesliga’s early kick-off on Friday night.
Schalke head into this match on the back of consecutive defeats to Bayern Munich and Hoffenheim. On the other hand, Leverkusen rebounded from their defeat to Hertha Berlin in Gameweek 5 to beat Hamburger SV last week.
Schalke, who were 4-1 winners at Bayer Leverkusen late last season, will be looking to get their Bundesliga campaign back on track.
Without waiting further, let us jump straight into the team news.
Schalke Team News
Midfielder Nabil Bentaleb returned to full training in midweek after missing last week’s defeat to Hoffenheim with a muscle complaint. He will be in the squad but is not expected to start. Leon Goretzka is also expected to replace Weston McKennie in the starting XI. While Coke and Pablo Insua are out with injury, Max Meyer is available for selection.
