Our Prediction:

Dortmund will win

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

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.

Match Predictions, H2H, Betting Tips & Preview

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.

Were confident that both teams will score and that over 2.5 goals will be produced in Saturdays game, and have backed Dortmund to claim a narrow 2-1 win. Three of the last six matches between the two clubs have seen both teams score and over 2.5 goals produced, and the same can be said about three of Schalkes and three of Dortmunds last six matches in league and cup. The visitors head into Saturdays game as the form favourites, but Dortmund havent beaten Schalke in their last five attempts.

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.

Head to Head

The Millionaires are after their fifth consecutive win at home ground. The home side are seen as hot favourites to win Saturdays football match. Marco Reus and his teammates are breathing down Bayern Munchens neck. Betting odds are low for Borussia Dortmund to win. The home team are brimming with confidence ahead of the Ruhr derby. This has to go down as yet another must-win game for the home team.

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.

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.
