Schalke 04 midfielder Max Meyer is confident of his side's Champions League qualification this season.

Schalke 04 attacking midfielder Max Meyer has revealed that he and his teammates will do everything needed to ensure that the club qualifies for the Champions League against this season.

The 2-0 win over Eintracht Frankfurt on Friday put Schalke 10 points clear of fourth-placed Borussia Monchengladbach and all but confirmed their place in next season's Champions League.

"We played a bit too slowly in the first half," Meyer told Bundesliga.com. "We didn't pass the ball enough, we struggled to play through the centre and often failed to pick out the right pass.

"Frankfurt were very compact and looked to hit us on the counter-attack. It was really difficult for us, but we played with a lot more pace after the restart. We caused Frankfurt a few more problems and eventually made it 1-0.

"Our aim is to play Champions League football again next season. We've taken a big step towards that objective with victory over Frankfurt. We're level on points with Dortmund and if it stays that way until the end of the weekend, we'll definitely be aiming for second place."

Meyer has made 31 Bundesliga appearances for Schalke.
