Our Prediction:

Dortmund will win

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

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.

Schalke 04 should finally feel their season is up and running after taking sevenpoints from their last three Bundesliga matches. 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.

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. 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. 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. That penalty took Bentaleb onto three goals for the season which is enough to see the Algerian top score for Schalke in the league.
