Schalke comes up against visiting side Augsburg at Veltins Arena in this Bundesliga fixture on Sunday.

Things are finally heating up for Augsburg after a slow start in the league this season. They won against the reigning champions Bayern in the previous round by scoring an unanswered goal.

Meanwhile, Schalke have returned back to the top flight after delivering an exceptional performance in the past 2. Bundesliga season.

By the looks of things, we expect a both teams involving affair at Veltins Arena on Sunday.
