Team News: Kevin-Prince Boateng leads the line for Schalke 04

Schalke 04 coach Jens Keller prefers Kevin-Prince Boateng to Adam Szalai for tonight's Champions League group-stage decider against Basel at the Veltins-Arena.

Schalke 04 coach Jens Keller has named Kevin-Prince Boateng at the head of his attack for tonight's crucial Champions League clash against Basel.

Murat Yakin has named a full-strength side as he bids to become to first coach to guide a Swiss team into the knockout stages of the Champions League.

Yann Sommer, Fabien Frei, Ivan Ivanov, Kay Voser, Fabian Schar, Valentin Stocker, Mohamed Salah and Marco Streller remain ever present for the visitors in Europe this season.
