Market: Serge Gnabry to score anytime
Odds: 20/21 @ 888sport
Making a return to action after an empathic silverware sweep over the summer, Bayern Munich will open the new Bundesliga campaign when Schalke come to town on Friday night.
Starting with the hosts, lifting the Champions League out in Portugal last month thanks to a 1-0 win against PSG, Bayern Munich shocked many with what was a rampant return from football’s enforced break. Marching towards yet another Bundesliga crown in empathic fashion, the German giants signed off last year’s campaign with a stunning 22-match winning run across all competitions and it is well worth keeping an eye out for German international Serge Gnabry on Friday night. While Robert Lewandowski might have stolen most of the headlines at the Allianz this summer, the former Arsenal starlet bagged a brace against Lyon in the semi-final last month and ended the year with four goals in his final five appearances. Finding the net the last time Bayern faced off against Schlake on Bundesliga duties back in January, Gnabry should be confident of opening his account this week.
As for the visitors, while Bayern might have signed off last year’s extended campaign in rampant fashion, Schalke only continued on what was a woeful run of form. Signing off the year with another horror show, the Blues were blown away thanks to a 4-0 drumming away at Freiburg and lost each of their final three Bundesliga contests on the bounce. Even more worrying for fans around Gelsenkirchen, their side remarkably failed to win any of their last 16 top-flight matchups, a run that stems all the way back to January 17th. With many fearing that the former European outfit could be at the heart of a relegation scrap this time around, Schalke couldn’t have wished for a tougher opener on Friday night. Hit with a 5-0 drumming when they last faced off against Bayern while on Bundesliga duties, don’t be surprised to see a similar outcome.
