Prediction: Bayern Munich to win 5-0

Best Odds: 16/1

Schalke and Bayern Munich will face each other in the Bundesliga this weekend. The match at the Veltins-Arena is slated to kick off at 2:30pm UK time on Sunday.

Schalke

Schalke will head into the match against Bayern Munich at the Veltins-Arena in Gelsenkirchen on the back of a 2-1 defeat to FC Koln at home in the league. It was Christian Gross’s second successive loss in the Bundesliga following a 3-1 defeat at the hands of Eintracht Frankfurt away from home.

The Royal Blues are in real danger of going down to the second division in Germany at the end of the season. Schalke are at the foot of the Bundesliga table at the moment with seven points from 17 matches and are unlikely to pose any problem for Bayern.

Team news:

Klaas-Jan Huntelaar could start for Schalke against Bayern, while Arsenal-owned left-back Sead Kolasinac is also set for a start.

Bayern Munich

Bayern Munich are the biggest club and have the strongest team in Germany, and there is no surprise to see the Bavarian giants sitting at the top of the league. Although it has not been the perfect season for Bayern so far in the league, they are currently four points clear of second-placed RB Leipzig in pole position after 17 rounds of matches.

Hans-Dieter Flick’s side will head into the match against Schalke on the back of a 1-0 victory over Augsburg away from home in the Bundesliga. It was Bayern’s second successive win in the league following a 2-1 success over Freiburg at the Allianz Arena.

Team news:

Robert Lewandowski will continue to lead the line for Bayern, while Serge Gnabry and Thomas Muller will form part of a very potent attacking lineup.

Key Factors to Consider

  • Bayern Munich have scored 49 goals in 17 Bundesliga games.
  • Schalke have scored 14 goals in 17 Bundesliga games.
  • Bayern Munich have conceded 25 goals in 17 Bundesliga matches.
  • Schalke have conceded 44 goals in 17 Bundesliga maches.
  • Bayern Munich beat Schalke 8-0 at home earlier in the season.

Conclusion

It is not a question of if Bayern will win against Schalke, but by how much. It could be a long afternoon for Schalke.
