Predicted Lineups, News and Form for RB Leipzig vs Schalke

An interesting match scheduled for the last round, so let's take a better look at both teams now and the possible RB Leipzig vs Schalke lineups:

RB Leipzig

With five wins in the last six matches in the league, RB Leipzig secured third place in the standings and a place in Champions League for next season, which was probably their main goal coming into this season of Bundesliga. So, their fans can be pleased, but they might also wonder if this year was the one they could've possibly challenge for the title. Still, RB Leipzig will also have a chance to win the German Cup next week.

When it comes to team news, Peter Gulacsi remains on the sidelines, while Christopher Nkunku and Dani Olmo might be rested in this match to safeguard them for the DFB Pokal final, especially since they both had injury issues recently.

RB Leipzig Predicted Lineup:

Blaswich – Henrichs, Orban, Gvardiol, Halstenberg – Laimer, Haidara – Szoboszlai, Forsberg – Werner, Silva

Schalke

In the last six games in Bundesliga, Schalke has done very well and won three times, along with one draw and two losses. Unfortunately for them, this is not enough to secure their survival as they remain in the relegation zone ahead of the last round. On the bright side, they might still survive the season if they can find a way to beat RB Leipzig in this match.

The team is also dealing with some injuries, with Jere Uronen, Soichiro Kozuki, Ralf Fahrmann, and Justin Heekeren all on the sidelines. Also, Moritz Jenz and Terodde will miss this game through suspensions.

Schalke Predicted Lineup:

Schwolow – Brunner, Van Den Berg, Kaminski, Matriciani – Kral, Krauss – Karaman, Zalazar, Bulter – Polter
