Bayern Munich and Schalke will face each other in a big quarterfinal match in the 2016-17 DFB Pokal. The two teams had an intense match in Gelsenkirchen during the Hinrunde, with Bayern “stealing” a victory with two late goals.

We’re entering the time of the year where Carlo Ancelotti has a big decision to make every match as to which players he rests. With a match away to Köln this weekend followed by a midweek match away to Arsenal in the Champions League (even with the big lead), who gets rested against Schalke or against Köln?

Bayern and Schalke is by far the biggest match in the DFB Pokal Quarterfinals. The other three matches are Eintracht Frankfurt vs. Arminia Bielefeld, Hamburg vs. Borussia Mönchengladbach, and Sportfreunde Lotte vs. Borussia Dortmund.

We asked three of our writers to predict what lineup Ancelotti will play against Schalke.
