Borussia Dortmund vs FC Schalke 04 Prediction & Betting Tips

Seeing that Schalke 04 are not regarded as good travelers, we believe that there is a big value in betting on Lucien Favres troops, who are determined to put an end to Bayern Munchens dominance in the German top flight. Die Knappen, on the other hand, experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 5-2 loss to Hoffenheim, but they are on the right track to secure yet another Bundesliga survival.

Alongside their two consecutive UEFA Europa League wins and their mid-week 3-2 win over Nurnberg in the 2nd round of the DFB-Pokal, Schalke are in top form, taking 5 wins and one draw from their last 6 competitive matches. Schalke were, of course, expected to start their Bundesliga campaign off much strongerafter an impressive preseasonand the signing of a handful of promising new players over the summer (see team news).A4-0 win at home to Borussia Mgladbach followed by a1-1 draw away to Augsburg and last Sundays 3-0 win at home to Mainz doesnt make up for the five consecutive defeats overtheir opening fixtures, butit should help to put some faith back in coach Markus Weinzerl. Schalke 04 should finally feel their season is up and running after taking sevenpoints from their last three Bundesliga matches.

Schalke finished second in the Bundesliga last season, but have failed to live up to the same high standards this time around and currently languish in mid table. On Saturday twelfth placed Schalke play host to the current league leaders Borussia Dortmund, and with nineteen points separating the two clubs ahead of kick-off the home side are bound to be in for a testing ninety minutes.

Andre Schurrle and Gonzalo Castro are also unlikely to feature and young winger Emre Mor serves the second of his 2 match suspension for the straight red picked up against Hertha. Dortmund's Marco Reus is out of rehabilitation training after his injury spell but is not expected back until later this year. Centre backs Neven Subotic and Sven Bender remain doubtful alongside wing-backs Raphael Guerreiro and Erik Durm.

Borussias biggest rivals are Schalke 04 and the two teams square off against each other in the Revierderby. However, the clubs biggest success came in 1997 when they outplayed Juventus in the Champions League final. Karl-Heinz Riedle scored a brace for BVB in the 3-1 win over Juve, with Lars Ricken finding the net in the title game as well.

Paco Alccers face may not have fit at Barcelona, but the Spanish striker has netted ten goals in the Bundesliga and is playing a vital role in Dortmunds title challenge. Burgstaller, Embolo, and Skrzybski have all chipped in with two goals each for Saturdays hosts, but the obvious lack of a goalscorer is certainly having a negative effect on Schalkes season. Reus injury nightmare seems to be behind him and the German forward appears to be back to his very best with nine league goals so far this season. That penalty took Bentaleb onto three goals for the season which is enough to see the Algerian top score for Schalke in the league.
