Schalke travel to Borussia Monchengladbach tomorrow night with the clear aim of moving one step closer to a place in the Champions League next season.
The Royal Blues have a three-point cushion over fourth-place Eintracht Frankfurt with three games of the season remaining, while their advantage over Gladbach is five points.
Victory would therefore eliminate one of their challengers for a place in the Champions League and, after an emphatic 4-1 win over Hamburg last weekend, that is precisely what they are aiming to do at the Borussia Park Stadion.
``We are heading there to win - that has got to be our aim,'' said coach Jens Keller.
``We can play there with self-confidence.''
Gladbach will also be confident while their director of sport Max Eberl says there is no pressure on his side either.
``We can be optimistic that we will reach the aim we set before the start of the season, which was a top nine finish,'' he said.
``Then we will have to see what we actually get out of the season.''
Meanwhile, Gladbach coach Lucien Favre has told his players to take a leaf out of Bayern Munich's book.
``We've got to play the way they did in Barcelona,'' he said. ``They always had 10 men behind the ball and were quick to get back.''
Havard Nordveit will not be able to help the Foals tomorrow night due to a virus, but Martin Stranzl is fit again after missing three matches and he is therefore an option.
Keller also has more options for his team with Jefferson Farfan back from a muscular injury.
