Team and Selection News

Schalke have a few injuries for this game, but the one that will cause by far the most concern is that of the niggle which Julian Draxler picked up in their previous fixture. The midfielder may miss out, which could even conceivably mean he will never play for Schalke again, as he is a big transfer target for Arsenal amongst other teams. Wolfsburg aren’t too badly off for injuries, but they will be without the Portugese winger Vieirinha for this match.
