Schalke head coach Felix Magath is confident that his side can pip Bayern Munich to the Bundesliga title in a tense end to the German league season.
The two teams are locked on 64 points each with two games to play, with Bayern having dropped points at the weekend as they drew 1-1 at Borussia Monchengladbach while Schalke edged out Hertha Berlin 1-0.
Magath told his club's official website: "They can only slip up another two times, but they're still in the Champions League.
"If they get to the final there I'm convinced another draw awaits them.
"No matter how the remaining matches go, you can be sure I'll continue my work at Schalke next year.
"Along with (chairman) Clemens Tonnies we have agreed that we want to guide the club back to the top not just in the Bundesliga, but also in Europe."
