Berlin: Runaway league leaders Bayern Munich are waiting on the fitness of Germany star Bastian Schweinsteiger for Saturday night's high-profile Bundesliga clash against struggling Schalke 04.

Bayern are enjoying a remarkable season: no other team has managed to either concede only seven goals after 20 games in Bundesliga history or keep 14 clean sheets in the same number of games.

With a 12-point lead in the Bundesliga, they face Arsenal in the last 16 of the Champions League on February 19, then host Dortmund in the German Cup quarter-finals on February 27 as they look for their first title since May 2010.
