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

Last weekend Hoffenheim had the home advantage against Schalke in what turned out to be a very close and competitive match. The hosts started the second half the brighter of the two clubs and took the lead shortly before the hour mark when former Leicester City striker Kramari scored a penalty. Both teams created chances during the first half, but wayward finishing at both ends meant the pair went in level at the break.

A man to watch in the home team will be experienced attacker Marco Reus, but pacey winger Sancho is likely to pose a big threat for the opposition defenders as well. There will be fireworks when Borussia Dortmund and Schalke 04 face each other at Signal-Iduna-Park in the Ruhr derby. The Millionaires are eager to stay in the race for the Bundesliga trophy and we predict that they will go all guns blazing at their local rivals on Matchday 31.

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.

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.

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.

Borussia Dortmund come into the Revierderby at home to rivals Schalke as the bookies favourites at 8/15. However, we feel the visitors are the better bet here for a handful of reasons: at odds of 8/5 on draw of Schalke double chance, Schalkes historicalrecord away to Dortmund alone is enough to make this a profitable bet Schalke have won or drawn in 24 of the 44 matches played in Dortmund (55%). Over the last three Bundesliga match-days, Schalke are the third most inform side (W2 D1) and they lead the charges with most goals scored over the same period (eight).
