Schalke 04 vs. Olympiakos: Lineups

With a chance to wrap up qualification for the next round of the UEFA Champions League, Schalke are likely to come out guns blazing at home against Olympiakos. Without some key players, the Greek side is playing with a slightly defensive-minded midfield, and they might end up playing more of a 4-1-4-1 than a 4-3-3 during this match. Lewis Holtby, who has had a great season so far, is going to see a lot of defensive anchor man Dimitris Siovas.

Schalke starting lineup (4-2-3-1): Lars Unnerstall; Christian Fuchs, Kyriakos Papadopoulos, Joel Matip, Benedikt Howedes; Roman Neustadter, Jermaine Jones; Julian Draxler, Lewis Holtby, Jefferson Farfan; Klass-Jan Huntelaar

Olympiakos starting lineup (4-3-3): Roy Carroll; Jose Holebas, Francis Modesto, Kostas Manolas, Vasilis Torosidis; Dimitris Siovas, Paulo Machado, Giannis Maniatis; Leandro Greco, Kostas Mitroglou, Djamel Abdoun

Schalke sit two points ahead of Olympiakos. A draw would give Olympiakos control of their own destiny on the final day, so don't be stunned if they pack 10 behind the ball for the entire match.
