Schalke 04 will be aiming to return to winning ways this weekend when they take on relegation threatened Augsburg on Sunday afternoon.
With Champions League qualification at stake, Die Königsblauen will be looking for no slip ups, as this game will be exclusively streamed live for Footybunker.com visitors with Bet365 (see below).
A poor run of form has seen Schalke slip comfortably adrift of the top two places in the Bundesliga and now their main aim for the remainder of the campaign is to hold onto 3rd position.
The top four teams qualify for the Champions League, but the team finishing 4th has to go through the qualifying stages, so there is plenty of reason for Schalke to work hard and finish in 3rd.
Going into this weekend, they are only a point ahead of Borussia Mönchengladbach, so this is an important game for them. After two defeats in succession, they need to get back on track and make sure their form doesn’t continue to fade between now and the end of the season.

They have only won one of their last six away games too, so it is vitally important that they focus on an improved performance at Augsburg this weekend. They don’t want their hard work at the start of this season to count for nothing.
As for the hosts, their main aim between now and the end of the season is to avoid relegation. As things stand, they are four points above the bottom three, but there is still plenty of hard work to do.
With three Bundesliga games remaining, victory this weekend combined with results going their way could mean that their top flight status is assured. They won’t be looking that far ahead at the moment though.
Augsburg go into this one with some confidence though after a 2-1 win at Wolfsburg last time out. They would love to recreate this performance against Schalke on Sunday.
When these two teams met earlier in the season, it ended in a 3-1 win to Schalke. They were flying on all cylinders at this stage though and on Sunday, Augsburg will be aiming to capitalise on the visitors’ more fragile confidence.
This one gets underway at 2.30pm on Sunday afternoon.
