SCH vs LEV Dream11 Team Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: Schalke make for the ideal opposition for Bayer Leverkusen in a teetering period for them
Whilst Bayer Leverkusen won’t have shed many tears over their 4-2 defeat to Bayern Munich the last time around with the team giving a good account of itself, the fact that the result was their second defeat in three encounters makes for cause for concern. The result took them out of the top 4, a spot the side deserves to nail down on given the enchanting brand of football they have deployed this season.
Assiduously focusing their strengths on attack in the ongoing edition of the Bundesliga, Bayer Leverkusen have become a force to reckon. The side has nonchalantly cajoled its way vibrant performances, ones which have been telling of the side’s robust nature as a well rounded, completely attacking unit.
And with the news of Borussia Monchengladbach losing this gameweek filtering into the side’s ears, Bayer Leverkusen have all the momentum needed to revert to winning way today. A win against a howler of a Schalke unit will see them move back into the top 4 and with t make massive strides towards asserting themselves of Champions League football next season.
SCH vs LEV Dream11 Match Prediction
While Schalke will manage to avoid relegation this season, the current form the side is in is reminiscent of the foregone season. Gone are the days when the team made for a lethal opposition in the first part of the season with the side currently languishing in 11th spot after failing to register a single win in five.
The team is in a rut, a dreary opposition while will fail to withstand the brunt of a mighty Bayer Leverkusen attacking slot.

SCH Vs LEV Dream11 Picks
Schalke’s Alexander Nubel made for the safest option for us to venture in with from the side. The team’s goal-keeper has been astounding, a player who has parried away a hoard of shots at a time of distress for his team.
Although Bayer Leverkusen’s defence has been at the front of the side’s two previous defeats, this clash looks all set to be the one where the side’s backline will once again settle into its groove. The team is paired off against a side which has scored only twice in his last five encounters with three of those clashes seeing Schalke go goalless.
The languid nature of Schalke’s attack will see Bayer Leverkusen easily come out of this one with a shutdown to their name to see us indulge in a string of defenders from the side. The trio of Sven Bender, Edmond Tapsoba and Mitchell Weiser will see the side erupt in unbridled jubilations at the end of the 90 minutes with a cleansheet in their kitty.
Where Bayer Leverkusen make for one of the most astute attacks with a gargantuan 5 goals scored this season, Schalke have made for an appalling backline. The team has seen its defensive acumen vanish up in smoke to ship in a howler of a 47 goals this season.
It’s a discourse which emotes towards the electric partnership of Naidem Amiri and Moussa Diaby wiping the floor with Schalke today. The hosts on the other hand will see Daniel Caligiuri move in with the player’s assist the last time around helping the side rescue a point against Union Berlin.
Wesley McKennie has thrived a time when others have faltered to see him wrap up the duo from Schalke.
He’s become the talk of the town with his imperious displays this season, resplendent performances which have seen Kai Havertz be serenaded by a hoard of major clubs across Europe. And with the player having recovered from his injury, he’s set to show why he’s such high property today to see us rope in Bayer Leverkusen’s top scorer with the 11 goals instantly.
With 7 goals, Lucas Alario joins up from the team while four goal and three assist man, Benito Raman will be drawing the curtains on our set of picks for the clash.
Captain And Vice-Captain
The 11 goals for Havertz see us make him our side’s captain while Alario is the vice-captain.
