Third place Schalke take on top of the table Borussia Dortmund on Saturday afternoon at the Veltins Arena in what is set to be a fiery encounter between two local rivals, as Footybunker.com visitors can watch any Bundesliga match up this weekend with Bet365 (see below).
Schalke suffered a shock 4-1 defeat at mid-table Nurnberg in on Wednesday night, so they will be looking to find some form against the league leaders. A win would have taken them to just three points behind Bayern Munich.
Huub Stevens’ side had been on a five game unbeaten run before their defeat in mid-week, so they will have been very disappointed to lose this record.
With Stevens’ men almost guaranteed Champions League football next season, one of their main aims could be to stop bitter rivals Dortmund picking up another Bundesliga title.
Dortmund had a fantastic win on Wednesday night, beating second place Bayern Munich 1-0 to move six points clear at the top of the table.

Jurgen Klopp’s side are firing on all cylinders at the moment, unbeaten since September in the league and only dropping points in two of their last 14 games.
With the last two games of Dortmund’s season coming against sides in the bottom half of the table, it is hard to look beyond them taking the title this season.
Klopp will be aware that form does tend to go out of the window in these big derby matches, however he will not need to say too much to motivate his players. His side could all but seal top spot with a win on Saturday.
Dortmund ran out 2-0 winners when these two teams met earlier in the season, so Schalke will be out to seek revenge. The German champions have only won twice in the league at Schalke though.
This match does not need much introduction to state how massive it is for both sets of supporters.
It all gets underway from 2.30pm on Saturday afternoon.
