Schalke 04 play Bayer Leverkusen at Veltins Arena on the Bundesliga matchday 31.
Schalke blew up several amazing opportunities to gatecrash to the top-4 of the Bundesliga. On top of that Schalke have the same number of points as Borussia Monchengladbach and Mainz trailing 4 points to Hertha Berlin who are currently the 4th, therefore in the Champions League.We should say Schalke failed to win any of their four April games in the Bundesliga. Moreover they were bitterly beaten by Bayern Munich and Ingolstadt. They also blew up a chance to beat their rivals from Dortmund in the Ruhr Derby (2:2).

Bayer Leverkusen in turn is totally different story. Roger Schmidt’s side have been playing their best football recently. If they did it a bit earlier they would have probably beat Villarreal. However, Bayer’s elimination from the Europa League was probably the reason why they are so good right now.
Bayer won 5 of their last 5 games and they climbed up to the 3rd spot. On top of that they’ve almost secured their place in the top-4 (they need to win two games to qualify to the Champions League anyway). Schmidt’s side collected 6 clean-sheets in a row.
It seems Schalke lack consistency to keep up with in-from Bayer even in Gelsenkirchen. Bayer will be dangerous, while Schalke surely try to boss the game thus allowing the visitors to have dreadful counter-attacks.
Prediction: Bayer Leverkusen to win with (0) handicap.
