Interesting facts about Borussia vs Schalke


Borussia is on a run of four wins in the Bundesliga, and closely follow the leader Bayern Munich. The statistics show that the team is the best home team (9 wins, 3 draws, 0 loses), along with that Borussia kept a clean sheet seven times. The key player for the team definitely is Erling Haaland who is in an incredible form (12 goals in 11 games). Sancho and Hazard work perfectly behind Haaland, and their accurate passes make the striker very effective in the system 3-4-3. The long unexpected pause clearly won't hit the targets that Dortmund has, and the team will be motivated to grab another 3 points from the Revierderby. All football predictions and odds are on a Dortmund's side, considering their goals for the German title.


Schalke is on a terrible period with one win out of ten games (6 draws & 3 losses). However, the team still has chances to qualify for the European tournaments, but it has to show more than what we saw in the past games. The team will be without a few injured players, but their top scorer Amine Harit is in excellent shape, and he will be the greatest danger for Borussia's goalkeeper. The odds that the bookmakers provide for a Schalke's win are very generous, and you can find them on our Odds Comparison.
