Ralf Rangnick expects an Inter Milan backlash when his Schalke side visit the San Siro in the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final on Tuesday night.
Inter are still smarting from their 3-0 thrashing by city rivals AC Milan on Saturday night, a result which put a serious dent in their hopes of retaining the Serie A crown.
And Rangnick is expecting Inter to release all their frustrations out on the Royal Blues.
"After their crushing derby defeat, Inter will be very motivated and will try everything to bounce back," said Rangnick, who was an interested spectator at the weekend.
"It was an intimidating atmosphere."
Nevertheless, Rangnick was optimistic as he prepared his men for a meeting with an Inter team who ousted another Bundesliga side in Bayern Munich in the previous round.
"We are the only German club still involved in three competitions and we just want to enjoy ourselves," he added.
"Of course we are outsiders, but we want to do the best we can from this situation and get something out of the game. We want a draw but maybe we can even create an upset."
Rangnick has selected a 19-man squad, leaving the injured Klaas Jan Huntelaar, Peer Kluge, Mario Gavranovic and the ineligible Anthony Annan behind.
Christoph Metzelder is in the squad despite breaking his nose at the weekend.
"Metze has every chance of playing, despite the broken nose," said Rangnick, who is also considering Kyriakos Papadopoulos for a place in the centre of his defence.
"We need the inexperienced players to use games like this to gain experience. But I think that, for example, the aggression of Kyriakos could help us in such a game. The biggest mistake would be to play there without the necessary aggression."
Argentina striker Diego Milito is set to return to Inter's starting line-up.
Sidelined since February 6 with a thigh injury, Milito came on as a second-half substitute at the weekend.
"I am physically and mentally well," Milito said.
"I am in good condition. I am delighted to have returned and I'm eager to help the team. It has been a difficult season for me due to injuries but I am ready to transform the anger into positive energy and give my contribution to the team.
"We are convinced we can progress to the next stage. But Schalke is a strong team and we respect them. You don't arrive to the quarter-finals just like that and it will be a difficult tie. We want to play a great game and win."
Inter coach Leonardo has warned his side will have to keep a close eye on Schalke striker Raul.
The former Real Madrid captain has scored three goals in eight Champions League appearances for Schalke this season.
"Raul is the symbol of Schalke's good form," Leonardo said.
"He is always a very dangerous player."
The hosts will be without the injured Walter Samuel and David Suazo as well as defender Lucio, who is suspended.
Five-star Schalke stun Inter
A match which began with Inter Milan scoring one of the great Champions League goals ended with their Champions League ambitions all but dead as Schalke twice came from behind in the San Siro to claim a commanding 5-2 advantage in their quarter-final.
Dejan Stankovic needed just 25 seconds to volley his side into the lead with a stunning hit from the centre circle, but Joel Matip levelled, just as Edu did before half-time after Diego Milito restored Inter's lead.
It was all downhill for the Italian champions after the break as Raul netted for Schalke, Andrea Ranocchia scored an own goal and Cristian Chivu picked up his second red card in four days, before Edu notched again to round off a miserable night.
It all looked so promising for Inter, who were coming off a 3-0 defeat against derby rivals AC Milan, as they immediately took the lead in stunning fashion.
Manuel Neuer advanced out of his area under pressure from Milito and headed clear.
He got good distance but the ball went straight to Stankovic in the centre circle, who showed great technique and power to volley first time over the defence, over Neuer and over the line.
Raul had two good chances to equalise inside the next five minutes, heading first wide and then straight at Julio Cesar.
At the other end, Milito did well down the left beat two defenders and get a cross in, but Wesley Sneijder could not keep his header down.
But Schalke were level in the 17th minute.
Kyriakos Papadopoulos was left completely unmarked at the far post from Jefferson Farfan's corner and, though his header was straight at Cesar, the ball broke to Matip, who hammered home.
Inter appealed for a penalty when Milito went down under pressure from Atsuto Uchida when through on goal, but referee Martin Atkinson decided there was no foul.
Manuel Jurado then shot straight at Cesar, before at the other end Eto'o had a goal chalked off for offside to bring a hectic opening 20 minutes to a close.
Stankovic's eventful evening - he was also booked - came to a premature end when he succumbed to injury after 24 minutes and was replaced by Houssine Kharja.
But Inter did not let the change knock them out of their stride and they were ahead nine minutes later.
A neat move involving Milito and Javier Zanetti saw Sneijder cross to Esteban Cambiasso at the far post.
Cambiasso headed back across goal to Milito, who, having stayed just onside, had a simple task to finish from close range.
They could not hang onto their lead until half-time, though, as Edu drew Schalke level, following up to finish from a narrow angle after Cesar had done well to save his initial deflected shot.
Inter should have had a goal a minute into the second half as well, as Sneijder picked out Milito, who controlled well but sent a left-footed shot inches wide of the left post.
Two minutes later, Sneijder played in Eto'o, who turned Benedikt Howedes before seeing his shot brilliantly saved by Neuer.
But it was Schalke who took the lead in the 53rd minute as Raul claimed his 70th Champions League goal, finishing low past Cesar after good work by Farfan.
And it got worse for Inter four minutes later when Ranocchia slid in under no pressure and diverted Jurado's low cross into his own net.
Eto'o had a glorious chance to pull one back moments later but he dragged a left-foot shot wide from 10 yards.
Chivu was shown a second yellow, having also been sent off in the Milan derby, for a challenge on Edu in the 62nd minute which the Brazilian made the most of. They almost paid the price three minutes later when Jurado crashed a shot against the post.
Farfan's 75th-minute shot was saved by Cesar and his follow-up effort turned against the post by Ranocchia, but moments later the ball broke to Edu, who turned Ranocchia and curled the ball past the despairing goalkeeper.
A shellshocked Inter rarely threatened thereafter and they will have a mountain to climb in Gelsenkirchen next week.
