Schalke vs Dortmund Prediction & Betting tips
Schalke 04 and Borussia Dortmund play the loaded regional derby on Sunday afternoon in Gelsenkirchen. Commitment: a ticket for the next season’s Champions League.
After a series of six victories in a row the voirge week went wrong for Schalke 04. When visiting low-flyer HSV, the club from Gelsenkirchen surprisingly lost 3-2. The field did not show who was the number two and who was the relegation candidate; something that Schalke could count on. There was not much to say about the defeat. However, there is no man overboard yet. Schalke is still in second place in the Bundesliga.
However, the team must remain in class. Of all teams in the top-six, S04, together with Eintracht Frankfurt, has the least individual quality. Team discipline and fighting spirit must be present at Die Knappen, otherwise trainer Domenico Tedesco has a very average team. Schalke has the first reinforcement for next season. Salif Sané comes from Hannover 96. This season, he is one of the better central defenders of the league – an asset for Schalke.
For Borussia Dortmund it has become a disappointing season. In the Champions League one could not break pots, the DFB Pokal will not win the team, and after a good start the team was changeable in the league. The goal now is to finish at least in the top four, in order to secure the millions of the Champions League. Dortmund has good papers for this, with five points ahead of number five Frankfurt.
Last week, the yellow blacks won their home game against VfB Stuttgart in good shape. At first it did not look like what Borussia was showing, but a failed cross by Christian Pulisic flew into the goal of Stuttgart. Hereafter, Dortmund got better in the game and after 90 minutes a big 3-0 score was on the scoreboard in Westphalia. Still there are the necessary injured parties at Der BVB. However, the selection is wide, so it can be taken care of.
