THE TEAM NEWS

SCHALKE 04

  • Since beating Hertha on penalties in the last 16 Schalke have taken just two points from four Bundesliga matches, losing the last two 5-0 and 3-0.
  • To make matters worse defensive duo Kabak and Omar Mascarell both suffered bad injuries against Koln at the weekend, with the latter ruled out for the rest of the campaign.
  • Loanee Todibo will replace Kabak in the centre of defence with Stambouli and Sane still out, while coach Wagner has hinted that Burgstaller will get a run-out up front.

BAYERN MUNICH

  • Cup holders Bayern Munich cruised to a 6-0 win at Hoffenheim on Saturday, their 12th victory in 13 games in all competitions.
  • Flick’s side certainly proved that they can cope with the absence of star striker Lewandowski, with youngster Zirkzee replacing the Pole up front and getting on the scoresheet
  • Boateng is doubtful with a stomach bug and Hernandez has been ruled out so Javi Martinez could make his comeback from injury after returning to the squad at the weekend.

THE PREDICTION

These two sides have met 11 times in the cup, with Schalke winning on just two occasions. The Royal Blues are struggling in the league at the moment and given Bayern’s excellent form and their formidable record in this competition, it is hard to see anything other than an away win.
