Ralf Fahrmann recovers from flu to start in goal for Schalke 04 against FC Ingolstadt 04.
Ralf Fahrmann has recovered from flu to start in goal for Schalke 04 against FC Ingolstadt 04.
The news comes as a boost to the hosts as the veteran goalkeeper was considered a doubt in the build-up to the game after missing training sessions this week.
Franco Di Santo partners Klaas-Jan Huntelaar in attack, which means that Eric Choupo-Moting is forced to settle for a spot on the bench alongside Roman Neustadter.
Ingolstadt look set to start with a 4-3-3 formation, with Moritz Hartmann being supported by Elias Kachunga and Matthew Leckie on the two wings.
Schalke 04: Fahrmann, Caicara, Howedes, Matip, Kolasinac, Aogo, Goretzka, Sane, Meyer, Huntelaar, Di Santo
Subs: Gspurning, Friedrich, Hojbjerg, Choupo-Moting, Ayhan, Riether, Neustadter
FC Ingolstadt 04: Ozcan, Levels, Matip, Hubner, Suttner, Gros, Christiansen, Bregerie, Leckie, Kachunga, Hartmann
