Third versus fourth

FCB can go second with win against Schalke

There are no guarantees in football, but it would be a real surprise if the 69,000 capacity crowd at the Allianz Arena for the clash between Bayern and Schalke on Sunday afternoon (Live in English from 3.15 pm CET on Web Radio) ended up witnessing a goalless draw, as the clubs boast the best forward lines in the Bundesliga: the men from Gelsenkirchen have scored 50 so far, one more than the Bavarians.

“Schalke play very refined, very good attacking football," noted Bayern boss Jupp Heynckes ahead of the meeting between the Reds and the Royal Blues, singling out Schalke’s “extremely good forward line" spearheaded by Netherlands hitman Klaas-Jan Huntelaar, the league’s joint top scorer on 18 goals together with Bayern's Mario Gomez. “That'll dictate our approach to the match," Heynckes continued.
