Schalke stars Lincoln and Marcelo Bordon will be fit to face Bayern Munich.
Schalke stars Lincoln and Marcelo Bordon have reported fit to face Bayern Munich on Sunday.
The Brazilian duo missed the impressive 3-0 victory over Palermo in the Uefa Cup on Thursday, but coach Mirko Slomka revealed that both would be fit in time for the upcoming Bundesliga showdown at the Allianz Arena.
Meanwhile, Schalke general manager Rudi Assauer has warned his team not to get too carried away after recent victories in the league and European success.
"Munich is a completely different matter," he told the club's official website ahead of the trip to the Bundesliga leaders.
"We may have won there 1-0 last season, but all that proves is that you can beat Bayern. On the other hand you can lose there too.
"We will, however, try to make full use of the momentum we have at the moment. It could prove to be our big advantage."
