Schalke are improving in the recent weeks and Magath could finally trust his men in scoring easily. Raul netted a hattrick last weekend against Werder, showing that he's powerful when he is hunting the opposition area. Huntelaar needs no introduction, too, as the Dutchman is scoring on regular basis for "The Royal Blue". Jefferson Farfan is also in good form, showing some dazzling running skills against Werder. Today, it is a great opportunity for Schalke to get 3 points and to come close to qualification and will rely on a frantic crowd at "Veltins Arena".
Lyon are also on high in the French Ligue 1, as they won over Nice and Lens in the last two rounds. "Les Gones", however, are far from the well-known form and that was visible in the away game against Benfica, where they were trailing by 4:0, before grabbing 3 consolation goals eventually. Lyon' squad is full of quality, but the defensive line is unreliable these days - the team have conceded in every one of the last 10 away matches and that's a worrying fact.
Schalke just have to perform today, because not winning today could diminish their qualification hopes. Lyon are struggling at the back and with players like Raul and Huntelaar, both in very good form, I believe Schalke will get the three points and start preparing for the last game away to Benfica.
