Bayer have won only 1 of their last 6 league games, losing 3 and drawing the rest.

They have not won a home game in all competitions since February 11 – during that period they played 5 games losing 2 and drawing 3 – they are currently on a run of 3 home draws.

They currently have 36 points from 30 league games this season.

Schalke are 2 points better than Bayer in the league table with 38 points after 30 games.

They have won 2, lost 2 and drawn 2 of their last 6 games.
