Munich - EA Sports and FIFA 14 present a virtual showdown of Saturday evening's clash (kick-off 18:30 CET) between an in-form FC Schalke 04 side against second-place Bayer 04 Leverkusen.

So kick back and enjoy the video, alongside the standout statistics these two have thrown up over the years.

    Schalke have lost just one of their last five matches against Bayer (a 2-0 defeat in the BayArena on 17 November 2012).

      Only VfB Stuttgart have a worse record (29 defeats) than Schalke (26) against Leverkusen in the Bundesliga.

        Heung-Min Son has lost all four games he has played against Schalke (three for Hamburger SV, one for Leverkusen).

          Schalke’s win over Bayer on Matchday 4 was the Royal Blues’ first victory of the season. It was also Leverkusen’s first defeat in 11 league games, and the first loss under head coach Sami Hyypiä.

            Perhaps the most noteworthy encounter between these two teams came on 11 February 2006, when Schalke won a thrilling game 7-4 in Gelsenkirchen. It was and remains the only time Bayer have conceded seven in a single Bundesliga game.
