Borussia Monchengladbach vs Schalke Match Preview
Borussia Monchengladbach host Schalke 04 for their Bundesliga season opener on Saturday after seeing a busy summer, where Marco Rose took over after Dieter Hecking left for Hamburger SV after two and a half years in charge. They now hope to kick-start the campaign in front of the home crowd and we expect them very motivated.
Die Fohlen fell just short of a Champions League spot last term and have seen a somewhat unpredictable pre-season, but they’ve seen DFB Pokal success and have ground to build on – as Marcus Thuram’s debut goal proved enough for a ticket to the 2nd Round over Sandhausen (0-1) last week.
Schalke have been more convincing as they beat Drochtersen / Assel (0-5) and connected a three-match winning streak, but it feels causing an upset at Borussia-Park will be much more of a challenge. They haven’t snatched a win here since 2013 and it does feel they find it hard to impress here.
Popular Die Konigsblauen have been scoring goals and we’ve seen them beat Alanyaspor (2-0) and Villarreal (3-1) in two exciting games in early August, which should have them just as motivated now. Still, David Wagner’s men have a lot to prove and we feel they’ll struggle to do so early in the campaign.
We will thus stick with Borussia Monchengladbach to secure the points and going for a Home win feels like great value at 21/20 with William Hill, as we expect the home side to build on their success in front of the home fans now.
We should see goals and we expect them on both ends as we now also go for a high-scoring contest on Saturday, backing Over 2.5 Goals FT at 4/5 with bet365. We have been used to such clashes between the sides at this ground and we now hope for more of the same in that sense.
