Schalke v Borussia Dortmund Predictions

Schalke have seen another hard-fought but underwhelming result on the road as they snatched a point at Hoffenheim  (1-1) on Saturday, failing to bounce back from a Champions League loss at Porto (3-1) seen beforehand and now hosting Borussia Dortmund looking to return to the winning ways at home ground. 

Indeed, Konigslauen have been a tough side to beat at VELTINS Arena and we’ve seen them beat Hannover 96 (3-1), Galatasaray (2-0), and Nurnberg (5-2) in three thrilling outings since early November. This will still give Domenico Tedesco’s men a lot to build on and the home crowd will have a lot to hope for.

However, Borussia Dortmund have been in great shape across competitions this term and we now see them topping the Bundesliga table with 33 points to their name and a seven-point gap to the 2nd placed Monchengladbach. They’ve beaten Freiburg (2-0) over the weekend and had no troubles playing on the road either, which does promise them in a great mood now as well.

BVB have thus bagged four wins and a goalless Champions League draw against Club Brugge (which still saw them secure a top 2 spot with a game to play) as Lucien Favre set high expectations and saw his men live up to them early in the new campaign. Do they have what it takes to snatch the points here?
