  • On the other hand, the Schalke attack is heavily reliant on Vedad Ibisevic and Burgstaller who haven’t been able to convert the chances in the recent past. Ibisevic scored two goals in his recent outing while Burgstaller also has 3 goals in last two matches. They will have to be supported by the likes of Kutucu, Skrzybski if they have to penetrate the Bayern defense.

The defense of the home team is impeccable with Alphonso Davies and Niklas Sule controlling the proceedings from the backline
