Preview: Schalke 04 vs. Borussia Dortmund

Sports Mole previews Saturday's Bundesliga clash between Schalke 04 and Borussia Dortmund.

Schalke 04 will be looking to move into the top four of the Bundesliga with a victory over Borussia Dortmund on Saturday.

Jens Keller's side, who are unbeaten in their last three league matches, saw off Eintracht Braunschweig last weekend to move up to fifth place in the table.

Dortmund, who defeated Hannover in their last league outing, could go top if they win and other results go their way.

Both sides faced English opposition in the Champions League in midweek, with Schalke losing to Chelsea, while Dortmund beat Arsenal.

Adam Szalai is expected to lead the line for Schalke in the continued absence of Klaas-Jan Huntelaar, with Kevin-Prince Boateng dropping back into midfield to replace the injured Marco Hoger.

Jurgen Klopp could be tempted to make changes to the Dortmund side that beat Arsenal, with Erik Durm and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang pushing for starts.
