Dortmund – Schalke : Preview & Prediction
5th Bundesliga matchday!
Dortmund, Bayern’s runner-up last year, had a good season but could not prevent Bayern from taking all the titles once again. This year, Borussia is once again showing some inconsistency in results, with 3 wins and 1 loss in the Bundesliga (2-0 at Augsburg), and one defeat this week in the Champions League (3-1 at Lazio).
Schalke, in real crisis for a few months now, finished 12th in the Bundes last year. The post-containment recovery was dramatic in terms of results and it is starting again this season. The record of 1 draw and 3 losses has already blown the manager off, and it is another long season for Schalke.
Dortmund finished 3rd (out of 18) at home in the Bundesliga last year with 11 wins, 3 draws and 3 losses.
Dortmund have scored 46 goals and conceded 17 in 17 home league games last year. Which made it the second best attack as well as the second best defense!
Schalke finished 13th in the Bundesliga away from home last year with 4 wins, 5 draws and 8 losses.
Schalke 04 scored 18 goals and conceded 31 in 17 away league games last year. Which made it the fourth worst attack!
Conclusion Borussia Dortmund – Schalke 04
Dortmund, although irregular this season (like the last few seasons in general), should still be able to get rid of an opponent who is not succeeding at all, and who has not won for months now. Dortmund victory by at least two goals!
