Draxler and Choupo-Moting back in training

Schalke were boosted by the return to training of Julian Draxler and Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting on Monday.

Julian Draxler and Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting have returned to training with Schalke as they continue their recovery from respective injuries.

Draxler has not featured since tearing a hamstring in a Bundesliga clash with Augsburg in October, an injury which required surgery.

Choupo-Moting missed the 1-0 defeat to Bayer Leverkusen on March 21 with a calf problem, and joined Draxler in Monday's session.

"Welcome back! Eric Maxim #ChoupoMoting & Julian #Draxler took part in the majority of today's team training session!" a tweet from the club's official account read.

Schalke travel to Augsburg on Sunday as they continue their challenge for a top-four finish and UEFA Champions League qualification.
