SCH vs MOB Dream11: Though only for a short period of time, Borussia Monchengladbach can move to the top of the table when they play Schalke away in the Bundesliga on Friday night at Veltins-Arena.
But it won't be easy, at least not away as Schalke are a different beast under David Wager. The former Huddersfield manager has transformed the club this season, with stunning improvement on the pitch bringing the club back into the Champions League discussion. Schalke are 5th heading into this game but are without a win in last two games.
Borussia Monchengladbach have a stunning transformation of their own this season. They are second on the table as things stand, only two points away from top-place heading into this game. Though many believe their title charge to fade away in the second half of the season, it's impressive still that they are in a position to challenge for the ultimate thing.

So who to back-up?
Schalke are without a defeat in the last 8 home games but have drawn four times in the last six games. Monchengladbach, on the other hand, have lost three times in 8 away games. So backing the home team to either avoid the defeat or get all three points look a good call. But don't expect either team to keep a clean sheet.
What should be your formation then?
Bastian Oczipka has shone at left-back for Schalke this season, setting up three goals so far, while Omar Mascarell has been a wall in midfield, with Amine Harit, Daniel Caligiuri and Suat Serdar all been outstanding for Schalke this season. Serdar and Harit, in particular, perhaps the best for Schalke this season.
So pick both these players, while Breel Embolo, Alassane Plea and Marcus Thuram all are in good form for Monchengladbach and should be considered.
