Bayern Munich would be looking to build on their fine start to the New Year that saw them beat Hertha Berlin 0-4 in their last league game.

However, the Champions face an in-form Schalke 04 side that also beat Borussia Monchengladbach 2-0 on their return from the winter break so we expect an exciting clash here.

Bayern are struggling to retain their league crown this season but the defending champions are not so far from the top of the league table, they are currently second on the league standings and just 4 points separates them from the top.

Schalke 04 have been doing well under the leadership of David Wagner, they are currently 5th on the league table and just 2 points separate them from the top three.
