The bottom two sides meet at the Ruhrstadion on Saturday afternoon when VfL Bochum host Fürth. Defeat for the hosts would leave them at least eight points away from guaranteed safety, while they can make Fürth’s survival hope a lot more difficult with a win.
Schalke can go second on Friday night with a win at home to mid-table Düsseldorf, with Mainz travelling to Nürnberg on Saturday. Bayern Munich host Wolfsburg on Sunday afternoon with a victory all but cutting off 6th-place down in the race for a Champions League spot.
Leaders Dortmund travel to Mönchengladbach on Saturday evening.
