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

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. 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. 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.

The German midfielder, who is capable of playing as a striker as well, failed to impress in the 2015/2016 Bundesliga campaign, but it has to be noted that he was struggling with injury at the start of the season. Gotze scored 22 goals in 83 league appearances for the club between 2009 and 2013 and he joined Borussia Dortmunds bitterest rivals Bayern Munich on April, 2013.

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.

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.

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).

Schalke 04 are having a season to forget. Marco Reus and Co. Saturdays game is of big importance for the home team. Borussia Dortmund aim to stay in the race for the Bundesliga title. Die Knappen are not capable of spoiling Borussias party at Signal-Iduna-Park. Lucien Favres men are likely to go all guns blazing at Schalke 04. have been impressive at home ground of late.

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.
