Our Prediction:

Dortmund will win

Schalke 04 – Dortmund Match Prediction | 26-10-2019 09:30

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.

Schalke 04 made a very slow start to the season, but they have been showing signs of improvement of late. All eyes will be on VELTINS-Arena when Schalke 04 and Borussia Dortmund face each other in the Ruhr derby on Saturday afternoon. The Millionaires, on the other hand, extended their winning run in the German top flight to four games at the weekend, with the team beating Freiburg 2-0 in front of home fans. Lucien Favre is doing a great job with the Signal-Iduna-Park outfit and we predict that he is going to help the team record their 11th win of the season. In their last home game in the Bundesliga Schalke rolled over Nurnberg 5-2. Die Knappen aim to climb to the top half of the standings and we predict that they are going to adopt an attack-minded approach in the local derby.

Reus opened the scoring for Dortmund at home to Freiburg courtesy of a fortieth minute penalty, and the hosts were good money for their half time lead after outplaying their guests in every department. Alccer was introduced into the game in the seventieth minute and it was the Spaniard that wrapped up all three points for Dortmund when he made it 2-0 in stoppage time. The hosts continued the dominate the match in the second half, but that all important second goal continued to evade them.

Centre backs Neven Subotic and Sven Bender remain doubtful alongside wing-backs Raphael Guerreiro and Erik Durm. Dortmund's Marco Reus is out of rehabilitation training after his injury spell but is not expected back until later this year. 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.

Reus opened the scoring for Dortmund at home to Freiburg courtesy of a fortieth minute penalty, and the hosts were good money for their half time lead after outplaying their guests in every department. The hosts continued the dominate the match in the second half, but that all important second goal continued to evade them. Alccer was introduced into the game in the seventieth minute and it was the Spaniard that wrapped up all three points for Dortmund when he made it 2-0 in stoppage time.

Schalke responded to going behind by making two substitutes in the seventieth minute and three minutes later the visitors levelled the scores with a penalty of their own which former Tottenham midfielder Bentaleb dispatched with aplomb. The visitors ended the match with 52% of the overall possession, but Hoffenheim had two more shots during the ninety minutes and a draw was probably a fair result on a day when both teams let themselves down in the final third.

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.

Europe League

Star striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang got himself on the score-sheet once again, taking his tally to 7 goals in eight matches one in each of his last three. Aubameyang trails the Bundesligas leading goalscorer, Anthony Modeste of Cologne, by just one goal and his form would indicate that a bet on himto score anytime at 4/6 with bet365 would be reasonable. Borussia Dortmunds mid-week 1-1 draw at home to Union Berlin in the 2nd round of the DFB-Pokal, where they progressed through to the 3rd round on penalties, means the hosts come into this with just one competitive win in their last six matches. Dortmund are without a win inthree in the Bundesligaand were caught off guard as last weekends trip toface the out-of-form Ingolstadt saw them forced to fight from 3-1 down to take away a point from the eventual 3-3 draw.

Dortmund havent kept a clean sheet in 8 competitive fixtures and given Schalkes 2.5 goal per game scoring average we expect them to take full advantage of this. Consequently, a bet of over 2.5 goals and both teams to score would also be a pretty decent shout at 10/11 with bet365. Dortmund have, however, only failed to score at home in one of their last 25 home matches, so wed expect them to also take away at least a goal here. Following these averages, we feel a correct score bet of 2-1 Schalke at 16/1 seems extremely reasonable value given the sides respective forms.

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. 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.
