Bayer Leverkusen was placed at 7th position. They made 22 points in the table. They made 20 goals and 15 assists. While Schalke 04 was placed at 3rd position. They made 25 points in the table. They made 24 goals and 16 assists. Schalke have been impressive on the road this season but they have only managed one away clean sheet in the Bundesliga.
Tah is suspended after his red card against Bayern so Dragovic is set to partner Sven Bender in the centre of defence, while Demirbay could be recalled in midfield. Havertz is fully fit again and expected to return to the side, with in-form wingers Bailey and Diaby either side of him, but Weiser and Pohjanpalo remain sidelined.
Nastasic and Kabak have performed well at centre-back in the absence of Sane and Stambouli, while midfielders Serdar and Harit have been the main providers of goals lately.
